Conclusion: If love space combat games and have never played the original Nintendo 64 version, you will want to pick this up. Gamers who played it many times in the past may find the price tag high at $40 for just upgraded graphics and the ability to play 3DS multiplayer with just one cart. Multiplayer with 3 other friends is really fun, just wished it had online.
Conclusion: There can be no doubting he pleasure in revisiting the wonders of gaming past, and Starfox 64 3D still stands today as a beacon of impeccable design, but at this present moment the 3DS’s balance seems too heavily skewed towards looking back, retromania over reinvention. On the other hand, this is a superb package, and a robust reminder of just what the 3DS is capable of. Starfox 64 3D, then: it’s the console’s second-best game, just behind Ocarina Of Time 3D.
Summary: Star Fox 64 3D invites players to take on the role of legendary Fox McCloud as they lead a fearless squadron of fighters in fierce aerial combat to battle the evil forces of Andross and save the galaxy from destruction.
Excerpt: Full disclosure: I have to let you know that I played Star Fox 64 on a handheld fourteen years ago. I still remember it, that day in 1997. I came home from grade school to news that my brother had bought a new Nintendo 64 game, which was big news in and of itself because that system had game droughts that put the Wii’s to shame.
Summary: In the 14 years since Star Fox 64 first landed on shelves, millions have answered the desperate call to save the Lylat system from the forces of the vile Andross. Few who have heeded that call have forgotten the brave wingmen who flew alongside them, or the perilous places they passed through on their mission. Now, the call rings out once again.
Pros: Tight, responsive controls, Updated visuals make familiar locations feel fresh, Not too easy; not too hard, Plenty of secrets to discover and goals to achieve, Fun multiplayer only requires one copy of the game
Cons: No meaningful updates to the gameplay, Artificial limitations on movement can be frustrating, Too pricey
Conclusion: Finishing the game gives you access to Sound Tests and if you're keen, clock it in a single sitting to get a nice bragging rights ranking. You’ve got the option of three basic game modes: Main Game, Battle Mode and Score Mode. It’s awesome to see Battle Mode back as it was one of the best aspects of the original and is just as sweet as ever, allowing battle with up to three friends via download play or with three bots for those friend less .
