I remember getting Star Fox Adventures for my Gamecube when I got it for Christmas and vividly remember playing it first out of my new games. Alot of people give it stick for straying too far away from the other Star Fox games but I thought the whole premise of you being on foot worked. It was a beautiful game for its time and was a decent length as well, which makes it harder for me to see why anyone could give this game as much stick as it gets.
I know this game has haters but did anyone enjoy playing it?
I really enjoyed Star Fox Adventures (and Invisible War, KOTOR 2, etc.); though it was flawed, it was still a really enjoyable experience. It's pretty hard to take actual haters seriously when all of those games still provided quality fare.
@craigbo180 said:Yeah I would definitely recommend it especially if you enjoyed adventures. The air battles are a bit more set-piecey and the multi-player is fun, the on foot sections and environments are just better in assault in my opinion.I am in the minority in that I preferred Starfox Assault to Starfox Adventures.I never actually played this game! I have always wanted to. I'm guessing you saying this is that you'd recommend it? :P
I like Starfox Adventures. Never got around to finishing it, but that's true of many games that I played, but I really liked it.
Ultimately the reason most people hated it was that they got this game instead of a regular Starfox game. If it had been put out in addition to a regular update of the series it would have been much better received. For context, imagine if they had never released Halo 2 or 3 on the Xbox 360 and instead only put out Halo Wars. Yeah, that's basically what happened on the GameCube.
I would have thought the expectation of a Starfox game would have had much to do with the typical disdain for the game considering I'm sure most were aware at the time that the game wasn't even a Starfox game until Nintendo decided to insert the Starfox brand.
Its a bad platformer. People didn't complain because it was a platformer so much as it was a shitty shitty platformer.
Star Fox Adventures isn't a platformer.
The game was fun, though the overdose of collectables that plagued Rare games of the era was a bit ridiculous. The biggest issue I had with the game was the story, which had some pretty gaping holes in it from trying to shoehorn certain things in, like Andross's appearance as the final boss. That being said, the game is entertaining enough that I can't really hate it for that. Though I do wish that it had more flying, it being a Star Fox game and all.
