Summary: I've been a big fan of Star Fox since the SNES days. Even though this game was from N64, it looks great on the 3DS. The 3D effect is really cool. I first played this game on an airplane, and beat it within 30 minutes. It was pretty fun, but I guess I've grown used to more in-depth games. It's really fun for what is, and worth playing if you're a Star Fox fan. Just make sure the price is right.
Summary: This game is fun. I remember playing it at a friend's house when I was a kid. We didn't have an N64 so brief moments like that were all we had to play it in. I remember full well how fun it was and how exciting. Naturally when I saw it was out for the 3DS I had to buy it. Which is why I was unprepared for the giant flaw of this game: it's only two hours long! How can they have a game this short? The N64 wasn't that limited a console.
Starfox never left. It's exactly the same game over all these years.

Summary: Starfox 64 3D is pretty much the same game as the N64 classic, with updated graphics, updated voices (for the worse), and updated 3D action. This is both a good and bad thing, seeing as how if you were expecting loads of new content, look elsewhere. None of the gameplay has changed, and it remains a fast fueled action packed game that is great anywhere on the go. Missions clock in anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes, making these a game that can be finished in under an hour.
Summary: This was one of my favorites on the N64, and I was thrilled to play it again in 3D. Unfortunately Nintendo disappointed me in that regard. No matter if your 3D slider is all the way up, this game looks to be about an inch deep. If you don't care about the 3D, it's a great way to re-experience a classic. But the dumbed down 3D really took the steam out of it for me.
Summary: While this is a remake of Star Fox 64, it feels a bit dull. I was hoping that with this remake there would be a multitude of bonus content for the sake of replay-ability. From what I can tell you have the ability to earn medals based on your performance in any given stage. I haven't played the multiplayer, however it's frustrating that it utilizes ad-hoc multiplayer instead of Internet based multiplayer.
Summary: If you were a big fan of Star Fox 64 on the Nintendo 64 in the 90s, then this title will certainly please you. If you are like me, and look for more than just action, such as character/skill development, then you might find this title too simple. However, the game itself is well polished, a lot of levels which have secret goals that when achieved unlock additional paths through the game, but unfortunately for my tastes the game ends in a limited number of ways and then...
