Starfox 64 3D Review
Team Starfox receives the 3D treatment
Starfox 64 was one of the most loved classics on the original Nintendo 64. It introduced a fun set of characters, addicting gameplay, and full on 3D environments to navigate your aircraft around. Starfox 64 3D is a full remake of the amazing original that emphasizes on revamping the graphics and packaging the title for a more modern audience. Nintendo were indeed able to take the core experience of Starfox 64 and enhance it in a variety of ways to produce a product that is well worth your time.
Starfox 64 3D is set in the Laylat star system and has you controlling Fox McCloud , the son of the legendary James McCloud, as he tries to save the world from the plans of the evil scientist Andross. You are sent on missions from one area to another in order to accomplish the given task with the final goal being finding Andross and foiling his plot. The game follows a non-linear path where you can go through different routes to finish the game. Depending on what you do in each of the missions and which objectives you complete you will divert to different paths. It’s also important to note that some characters most notably Star Wolf (leader of the mercenaries) are unavoidable regardless of what route has been taken. There are 25 routes available in the game which adds in a lot of replay value.
Starfox 64 3D has the exact same gameplay elements as the original Starfox 64. The game is set in a full 3D environment where you control Fox assisted by the rest of his team members to accomplish your objectives. The combat is a mixture of shooting and navigating around to doge incoming enemy attacks and obstacles. The gameplay of Starfox 64 3D is extremely fun especially due to its tight controls and great level design.
