Star Fox 64 3D, classic comes back to life. 14 years since it appeared on Nintendo 63. My first question was if it lives up to the original game. I was skeptic about the 3D part, but that soon changed, and I really liked the game.
Star Fox 64 3D is a simulation/shooter game. That is the best way to describe it. You are Fox McCloud and you shoot your way through some intense levels in order to save Lylat System. Those levels are pretty interesting and provide a lot of challenge for you to play the game again. There are some really cool boss fights that require excellent strategic moves in order to win the fight against them.
The game branches in different paths and it is up to you where that route will take you. In original series you took one path and there is not much you can do about it. You can only go to next planet that is connected with the path you took but, in new Star Fox 64 3D you get to choose to which planet you go next, which is a nice addition to the game.
Star Fox 63 3D offers you excellent controls. You get to choose between two controlling system. One is by tilting the system, and must admit it works well enough. But it also has some bad sides, like you have to move your body in order to avoid the blur effects of 3D. But, I guess that gives you the opportunity to feel like you are actually driving the star fighter. And there is the traditional control system, you use circle pad and that way you avoid 3D blur.
The graphics for Star Fox 3D have improved a lot. The developers did a good job to increase the details in game, and it feels much better to play the game. Water effects are made great, and with the 3D you get excellent atmosphere. The 3D is slightly slow so that you can enjoy the graphics, which is great.
This is one of the rare remakes that turn out to be great. But, there is One thing I don’t like is the multiplayer. Better said, I don’t like the fact you can’t play this game in online multiplayer. Nowadays almost every game has online mode, and that is the reason people play those games more. Bad thing about Star Fox 3D is that you can’t play it online.
This is a great game, I can say it is an improved original version, and the developer didn’t compromise all that was good in original game. I’m kind of disappointed that there is no online support, but either way it is a great remake. Even the biggest fans of the original game will be thrilled to play it. The price of $40 is worth it. For that price you get a brand new classic. Seeing all this, I would strongly recommend you to play this game; you won’t regret it in any way. You get the classic game with all those new improvements.
