  1. Toadette the Achiever (talk) This article may be well-written on the surface, but it's lacking content-wise in several sections. For one, the VS mode section, while it does provide good detail about the mode, it lacks images for it. Another problem is the {{rewrite}} template found in the changes section, and for a good reason too: all of the changes listed are randomly ordered with no separate sections for graphical, quote, story, etc. Lastly, the reception section is the worst offender, largely because it has nothing but sales information. Yeah. There is literally nothing for critical reception other than "Super Mario 64 DS received positive reviews yada yada" plastered over absolutely nothing. At least the sales data is informative enough. There's not much else wrong with this article, but the critical reception is something very influential to the game that's utterly neglected here.
  2. WeirdDave13 (talk) Per Toadette the Achiever.
  3. YoshiEgg1990 (talk) The issues Toadette mentioned were fixed by me, with a little help. However, there are still issues. The Trivia section seems too long, File:SM64DS Vs Mode.png has {{image-quality}}, and the article is tagged with {{more media}}. Therefore, i am going to support this for now.
  4. Baby Luigi (talk) Per all. Standards for what constitutes as a featured article have increased and this article is a relic of that time period that desperately needs updating.
  5. TheFlameChomp (talk) Per all.
  6. Yoshi the SSM (talk) Shorten Trivia a bit so that it isn't appear as long. But, the other two issues remain, which I can't take care of even though I have the game.

Removal of support/oppose votes


For VS mode, afaik, melonDS is the only DS emulation that can potentially emulate multiplayer play. Otherwise, I think it's unfair tagging it for better image quality upload, because most emulators, including Desmume do not support multiplayer.

FYI, this was not taken from an emulator. It was taken from a Youtube video, like most of the images i upload. Blue Yoshi from Yoshi's Story Yoshi Egg 1990 Red Yoshi holding a Bumber 'Chute 19:45, 19 August 2018 (EDT)
I'd expect that, because again, it's next to impossible to emulate multiplayer. Hence why I think it's unfair to tag it with an image-quality image, since it's really difficult to get emulation quality images for multiplayer. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 19:48, 19 August 2018 (EDT)
