Plot. A remake of the 1993 Star Fox game. The plot begins where the Lylat System was once a peaceful galaxy and that was until the evil Andross came, his desire for power caused his expulsion from Corneria by General Pepper. When strange activities emerge from Venom; James McCloud, Pigma Dengar and Peppy Hare are sent to investigate. When they arrive, Pigma betrayed his teammates and Peppy barely escapes, then a few years later the son of James McCloud, Fox forms the new Star Fox team along with Falco, Slippy and Peppy. And together they fight to put an end to Andross.
Controls. To make a somersault, press the boost button (C-Left) and down with the joystick at the same time. You can also charge your beam to lock on and get more bonus points. You can lock and shoot bombs as well. To barrel roll press Z or R twice. You can change the point of view with C-Up for a cockpit or further view (All-Range mode). To respond to ROB64's messages and get bonus items, press C-Right. A button is for shooting and laser charge-up while holding it. B button is for shooting bombs. A U-Turn is performed by pressing C-Down and Down with the joystick button at the same time. Peppy's line: "Do a barrel roll!" has become an internet meme.
History. The series began in 1993 with the first Star Fox game for the Super NES. There was supposed to be a sequel as well for the SNES, but when Star Fox 64 began to be developed, the project for Star Fox 2 was abandoned, and now it is played in SNES9x Emulator. After Star Fox 64, the series went on a long hiatus until players would play as Fox in Super Smash Bros. In 2002, Star Fox Adventures was released introducing new characters. Then in 2004, Star Fox: Assault was released for the Nintendo Gamecube. Then on the Nintendo DS, Star Fox: Command was released, that game bared a resemblance to the forgotten Star Fox 2.
Characters. Fox McCloud is the main protagonist of the game and sets out to fight Andross and avenge his father. Players have the opportunity to play as the other pilots in Multiplayer mode. This game also introduced the rival team of Star Fox. Star Wolf was led by Wolf O'Donnell in which he is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
Bad Aspect. In Expert Mode, if you're not careful with your flying capabilities you will clip a wing. I also disliked that the Landmaster only had a double shot in the multiplayer mode and you only played without the Arwing in Multiplayer mode as well. Why didn't they put Fox out of the Arwing in Game mode? That was a letdown that they did not had those in Main Game mode. Aquas got dark as farther you got, and needed the countless torpedoes to light the way. I hated that you had to help your teammates, even Falco himself, no one understood it.
Good Aspect. I enjoyed the game's 3D environment and also the voice acting which gave the game a unique dialogue. I also loved the Katina mission, this stage pays a tribute to the 1996 blockbuster movie Independence Day, and the character Bill Grey is named after General William Grey, played by Robert Loggia in the movie. Players would unlock Expert Mode after they collected all the medallions in Main Game mode. Some enemies make a return such as the Attack Carrier from the SNES game.\
Music. Koji Kondo made the music for this game and gave it a unique style. But Koji is nowhere as cool as Mr. Uematsu from the FF series.
Overall. I can rate this game in three words. Cool, awesome and incredible. I give it a 9.6 out of 10
