Sin and Punishment - Nintendo 64

This ultra-challenging, enigmatic shooter on rails features a bizarre storyline, odd cut scenes and terrible voice acting combined with some of the best game play found on the Nintendo 64.

Seriously, this is a MUST have for any Ntsc-J N64 owner (well... It's also available on the virtual console, so you don't have any excuse for not owning this gem), or treasure fan. The game is really well made (as you could expect from treasure) and feels really unique.

It's not often you see balls-out lightning quick arcade action on the N64, but this is one such example. It's like a 3d scrolling Cabal mixed with other influences, and done with a lot of creativity. Once you master the controls, it feels like nothing else. I highly recommend this one.

Well, first thing I noticed is it has a nice idea for a run and gun game. I like the premise of this game and I wish more games came out like this. The graphics look different and I like the backgrounds. The enemies look nicely designed but the voice acting stinks. The variety of weapons is a nice touch for the game in which you can choose from close range to long range weapons. I would like to play this game.

this looks great. got to get it on the Virtual console.

Its one hell of a Strange Game, but its also pretty short. It was very expensive back in the Day but since it got released on the Wii Shop, it can be bought for cheap, Its a Game that has to be played to feel it.

Sin & Punishment features the sort of tough-but-fair action that can hook in almost anyone, whether you're playing just for thrills or to reach a high score. Each level is memorable, and each one of them offers you opportunities to approach it slightly differently on your next playthrough, in order to either rack up more points or to not die as often! Both the shooting and the swordplay are extremely satisfying. Overall, the game is a showpiece for what the N64 hardware can really do!

Great game! Works perfectly with the classic controler! Download it on the virtual console, NOW!

This game looks fun. It makes you wonder why they didn't release it in the US.

Amazing game! Cut the tabs out of your US N64s and import this game NOW!

SIN AND PUNISHMENT review for Nintendo 64
Added by: CGR

 Super Mario Land - Game Boy
"I don't get Derek's dislike of this game, but he's also mentioned that his first portable was the DS, so maybe it is just a product of the time. This was a great early example of the quality of games that could appear on the original Game Boy. Certainly it has been surpassed since then, but it was still very enjoyable." - Imperial Khador

 Brutal Legend - Xbox 360
"Amazing soundtrack and funny as hell. Jack Black has done a great job as Eddie Riggs. The world it is set in is fantastic and always interesting. The action and driving is solid. The only let down is how the RTS sections felt very samey." - pottsy69

 Super Mario Land - Game Boy
"Short and sweet, a must play for the original GameBoy. This game famously did several things different from the core Mario series, and even today it stands out due to its unique qualities. The length isn't a bad thing at all - not all games need to be long, plus that just means this is a game you can go back to and do a playthrough of whenever the mood strikes you. Visuals look dated, but not bad dated, if that makes sense. Music is fantastic! Play this game!" - svenbtb

 Super Mario Land - Game Boy
"It's a classic. I love the music in particular; it's some of the freshest stuff I've heard from this series. As dated as it looks, I still find myself coming back to it every now and then. And that's more than I can say about my other GB games." - Smash Bros Maestro

 Streets of Rage 3 - Sega Genesis
"The controls in this game are beyond excellent; they're perfect. Streets of Rage 3 has the tightest, deepest controls of any Beat em up I've ever played (and I've played a lot). And the soundtrack? Just brilliant. It has the most creative music of any Mega Drive game I've ever played. And the art direction is amazing...this game is just outstanding, even better than the second IMO. It's one of my favorite games ever made. And the Japanese version is even better! Imagine that." - Smash Bros Maestro
