Dawn of the Glory Days or Return of old fasioned Nintendo Games

During the days of the SNES, Star Fox was released. Star Fox was found to be a real popular rail-shooting game. So Nintendo decided to make a sequel, but that was scrapped due to the upcoming release of the Nintendo 64. Nintendo restarted the whole storyline, making the original Star Fox non-canon. Taking in some elements from the intended sequel like all-range mode, a battle system that allows you to move freely across a square map. If you weren't living the glory days I experienced, you should get this game.

Graphics 10/10
Yeah it doesn't look much compared to now, but during then, that was one of the best types of graphics. But there are some types of details that are better than the next-gen consoles. The Arwing's texture is so smooth, it'll look real. Just don't look at the cardboard cockpit.

Gameplay 8/10
Basically what you have to do is fly a space fighter called the Arwing, and what you have to do is destroy enemies while on the rail, or in all-range mode. There are times where you have to pilot a tank called the Land Master, and one mission puts you in command of a midget sub called the Blue Marine. You have wingmates that'll assist you, but you'll assist them more than ever. During All-Range mode missions, they are generally incompetent, in other words they are screwing around all the time and being chased by enemy fighters. "Shoot he's right behind me!!" Gezz Falco, what the hell do I look like, a Molbile AA gun?

Voice Acting 8/10
Yeah the voice acting is alright, but Slippy Toad who is a male sounds and is voiced by a female. Making everyone believe that he's a girl until Star Fox Command.

Story 9/10
OK from the bottom up. A Star Fox team led by James McCloud investigates bizarre activity. Upon arrival, one of the wingmates, Pigma Dengar, betrayed the team and James and his other wingmate, Peppy Hare were captured. Peppy escaped and returned home to tell James' son Fox about his father's fate. Fox left the acadamy to avenge his fathers death, by forming a mercanary squadron including: Fox McCloud, Peppy Hare, Slippy Toad, and Falco Lombardi.

Overall 9/10
If you don't mind incompetent wingmates and cardboard cockpits, this is a game that you would like to get more than likely.

Rating:   4.5 - Outstanding
