foxmccloud's Star Fox (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) review

Classic

If You've read the StarFox comics, You'll understand why Fox is here in his arwing...He's the most ruthless mercinary who still has some morals left in him and the upcoming threat of Andross is not one to be left any longer...

The gameplay is fairly simple, dive, dodge, duck, shoot and release some bombs...
Simple; yes, but very entertaining, giving a great retro game feel to Star Fox which is a good thing indeed.
Shooting and bombing ground targets to bizzare giant flying creatures to your classic gargantuan boss, be it a tank or a flying HQ with Air-to-Air missles, practice will make the game seem easier every time you play.
It may not have multiplayer but it can be shared, you and a friend or family could take it in turns to play for the highest score and the furthest level.

The graphics may be polygonal but remember, this was the bleeding edge of the SNES Graphics Card...you can expect worse graphics from the SNES but this is a good show of what were amazing graphics for that time period.
Again, they may be polygonal but there is a large variety of colour and the changes in colour you will see are very good and change as different things happen, worlds you visit will look completely unique and different in shapes and textures.

You can't really expect much from a SNES now; for sound.
But the sounds are surprisingly good for such an old game, explosions, laserfire and afterburners all have their sounds, everything sounds unique.

Value overall...its worth getting if for some reason you were to buy a SNES or have one, StarWing or StarFox and just haven't tried it out yet. (they're named differently in the US and EU!)
If you do have a SNES and have dug it out of the attic for some retro gaming, and you do see StarWing in the shops and have a little spare change, go ahead; buy it, hours of fun await you and friends.

    Today, there is one trait all games have in common: 3D graphics. No matter what new game you play, or on which platform, the graphics will be rendered in 3D, with a few exceptions mostly on portable systems. Even a game featuring 2D gameplay will likely use 3D polygonal techniques for display. Yet there was a time when this was the other way around, when 2D was the rule, and 3D was as much an exception as 2D is today.Much like black-and-white cinematography in film, presently 2D is more an artis...

    This is the game that came before the "Barrel Roll" 64 edition and 1st used, the revolutionary (well at the time) Super FX Chip on the SNES. So how does this game stack up to the likes of Starfox 64, Starfox Adventures and Assault? Well quite well actually.In Starfox, (if you don't know the story by now...) you play as Fox Mccloud, leader of the reformed Starfox team. As Fox Mccloud, you are trying to shoot everything that moves in your way, as this game is "On-Rails", meaning that you are taken...
