Super Mario 64 DS was a port of the original Super Mario 64 released with the launch of the Nintendo DS in all teritories, showcasing the 3D graphic capabilities of the system.
Gameplay in Super Mario 64 DS is actually quite different from the original due to the change in input scheme and the special abilities given to the new characters.
Mario still retains most of his abilities from the original, but loses a few (he can no longer become invisible or walk underwater), but he's the only character capable of the wall kick, and is probably the best all around one to use in the game.

 Super Mario 64 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Super Mario 64 is the game that many will associate with their very first steps into the big, bright new world of 3D gaming.
Super Mario 64 was created for the Nintendo 64, from the control system to the camera to the whole premise - choosing a game so intertwined with its original host platform to port to another was quite a misadvised choice on Nintendo's part.

Mario, as you’d expect controls just like he did originally, and is the only one who can triangle jump off walls.
Mario is able to inflate like a balloon and float around (which is actually a new feature), while Luigi is able to turn invisible and intangible, which makes him able to walk through certain obstacles.

Mario of course is typically well rounded and exactly like he was in the original.
Mario can inflate like a balloon as he did in Super Mario World, Yoshi can breathe fire, while Wario and Luigi retain Mario's old abilities from the N64 version of turning into metal and walking through walls.
Due to the DS hardware, the blurriness of the N64 version is now gone in favour of a much harsher, crisper look and due to it being at a much lower resolution, with jaggies at minimum.

This is the Super Mario 64 that appeared on the N64.
Yoshi has his tongue and stomach of steel, Wario possesses unmatched strength, etc. but the levels are designed in such a way that there are only a few instances of having to be a particular character to accomplish a goal and sometimes it’s a matter of losing that hat and proceeding as the default character.
Super Mario 64 DS may not be as groundbreaking as the original Super Mario 64 but as a launch title and a full-featured game you absolutely get your money’s worth.

As Mario DS stands, it’s 90 percent the same game we played in ancient times, with brief flashes of fresh content, like the occasional new level or the stuff mentioned in the sidebar below.
The DS doesn’t have that stick, so you’ll have little Marios, Yoshis, Luigis, and Warios falling off skinny platforms, jumping to their dooms, and missing crucial ledges all the time.
Also, outside of the occasionally entertaining Wario Ware–style micro minigames, Mario DS doesn’t make good use of the hardware’s unique features (the multiplayer mode is entirely forgettable, though it is cool you need only one cart to play).

 Review - Super Mario 64 DS // DS /// Eurogamer
Mario's "Sort or 'Splode", for example, has already passed into legend for being one of those incredibly addictive games that you can't stop playing and get incredibly competitive over high scores on.
Far better are the games which you can play for ages such as Mario's "Trampoline Time" which tasks you with hastily drawing in trampolines that bounce the suicidal Marios to safety, and reminds us of Nintendo's ancient Game and Watch effort "Fire".
Tom's favourite "Mario's Slides", meanwhile is like a bonkers take on Tetris, with descending heads sliding down vertical lines, transferring between parallel lines via lines that you yourself draw in, the idea being to wind up sliding into a star rather than a piranha plant.

I purchased the DS not necessarily because any of the games coming out for it look outstanding, but more because I liked the idea of Nintendo attempting to take games in a new direction.
I believe that a discussion of the merits of Super Mario 64 DS must not only be aware of the pedigree of the source game, but should also mention this new game's status as a launch title for a new console, and a new style of gaming.
Moreover, Super Mario 64 DS gives a cursory, and addictive, illustration of the potential of this new user interface of the DS with it's plentiful minigames.

Thanks to the surprisingly good DS speakers the sound is clear and even the infamous “It’s me, Mario” is there.

 IGN: Super Mario 64 DS Review
The end result: Super Mario 64 became a massive commercial, critical, and design success for the Nintendo 64 console, and though future games have built upon and improved on the ideas established by Nintendo's development team, gamers still regard Super Mario 64 as one of the finest examples of 3D platforming ever created.
Super Mario 64 DS successfully demonstrates that the Nintendo DS has the right stuff to recreate an existing "64-bit" game on handheld hardware, and there's no question about the quality of the game's production value.
Though the Nintendo DS developers pull off the game's original control structure extraordinarily well on a system without an analog stick, it still feels like a compromise and begs the question,"if this is your killer app to show off the system, why the heck didn't you include one in the first place?"
