Taking everything into perspective, this was a damned impressive game when it came out. The multiplayer aspect was unusual, rare, and worked very well. I enjoyed all of the levels a lot, which I found to be quite balanced with a few exceptions (Buto was very luck-based, Going Down is too easy to skip entirely.) I remember that I definitely wanted a level editor and increasing stats, which were added in PR2, though this has a certain charm to it as well. A little disappointing that even with a high speed stat it runs pretty slowly, though when I first played this I didn't mind since it was all I knew.
Very good effort here.
