Game Description & Reviews:
Glover is... Well... Unique. I'll start by saying that.
I'll admit I never managed to get past the first few courses. It becomes quite a bore after a short while. I found the courses to be a bit redundant, and Glover is surprisingly very hard to control.
At first the game looks cool, and similarly to Super Mario 64, you are at a starting point, and revolving around the tower grounds you'll find entrances to various courses.
The first few times you play it's cool, but it does begin to get old very fast. I can't say much for storyline or anything around those lines as I myself never completed the game, but from what I saw of it the story didn't seem awful. It's just the game play was quite dull and glover is very hard to maneuver. He has many different moves, each consisting with having to time pressing buttons simultaneously or using the control stick in some manner. It's a bit to memorize at first, but if you bought the game new it has a sheet that's separate from the instruction book where it actually lists out all of the moves for you. I always kept it handy, and it helped a lot.
Overall, this game just wasn't quite what I expected, and was just a bit of a waste of time and money.
Glover is a foray into just what the Nintendo 64 can do. While reminiscent of Mario at this point dont be confused, Glover is its own world with its own distinct set of challenges ranging from running a ball through a narrow maze or fighting his way through the world to get to his other half, the other magically enchanted glove that is waiting for him.
You are Glover, a magician's glove, and it's your job to save the land from your evil twin (the glove of the magician's other hand). With you at all times is your ball, and if anything were to happen to your ball, well, you wouldn't be terribly happy. Glover can do a number of things with his ball, like bounce it, throw it, slap it, you know, give it the works. In order to move on to the next stage, Glover must take his ball to the end of the level with him. Glover is a unique game, certainly an artistic achievement, and while not quite a Super Mario 64 or a Rayman 2, Glover succeeds in it’s own, magical way.
