Believe it or not, Supercross 2000 (EA) is actually quite hard to get CIB. I've only ever seen one copy in a couple of years and maybe 2 carts or so which I own 1 of.

Everyone is forgetting one extremely rare PAL variation, Shadowgate 64 with english text.
Yup. I've seen two CIB Supercross games. I kick my self for not buying them.

I kick myself even more about Shadowgate 64! I had this once before I went traveling and sold my whole collection. I lost Shadowgate and Starcraft 64!

I get nightmares most nights. :eh:
Keep it secret, keep it safe... :phear:

You could always buy a NTSC-U copy, they seem to be at a reasonable price, or are you like me, PAL or nothing LOL. :D

I'm really not sure to be honest. I can only assume that it just didn't sell very well over here. Come to think of it, I don't ever recall seeing it as a kid in the shops.

Just like yourself, I'm a PAL man through and through :lol: the only US/J games I'll pick up are the exclusives to those regions.

Also as you may have noticed all the first party Nintendo games in Europe (ie. the ones which have 'black boarders') adopt the US 'red panel' style in Australia, so technically they are all different too. But to narrow it down, below are the games which have significally different carts compared to ours... thanks to scooter77 for pointing out the Yoshi colours as I hadn't noticed before :yeah:


  • 1080 Snowboarding
    // different art work

  • Banjo-Tooie
    // different art work

  • Donkey Kong 64
    // yellow cart

  • Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
    // different art work

  • Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
    // gold cart

Carmageddon 64, Command & Conquer, Shadow Man, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil, Turok: Dinosaur Hunter and Turok: Rage Wars

are all games, that where censored in some way in Germany.
