Miserable controls mar faithful port

This is a great and even improved version of Mario 64, but the DS just doesn't lend itself to the correct control scheme to play the game. The simple intuitive controls that made most people's first 3D game great are gone and replace with complex and frustratingly innaccurate approxiamations.

Extra rooms and stars be damned, I'll stick with the N64 version.

It's a fine game, really. But the control scheme didn't translate from the N64 very well. I really missed having a true analog stick for this one.
