After playing Starfox on a friends N64 around 4-6 years ago I was captivated, Back then it had decent graghics and a neat storyline. After multiple tries(And visits to my friends house) I beat the game and walked away daydreaming of the day Starfox whould return.
Several years went by I got a Gamecube and got Star Fox Adventures with it for free. I have to say I was disapointed that it had no multiplayer, but the graphics, storyline and gameplay made up for that.
After seeing an ad for Star Fox Assult a few months ago (And seeing it promised mutiplayer) I thought "a bought F'king time!"
Alas I have to say, after renting it yesterday, I'm disapointed with Star Fox Assult, the attempt to recapture the "Classic" feel of Star Fox by turing the graphics into the N64 poly leaves you empty inside.
As if thats not enough I HAVE warn you a bought the music. It makes you want to kill something and I don't mean the "Good" adreniling pumping music that so many of us listen to, I mean the crappy carnivil music that makes you want to PUKE!
So my suggestion is this. Turn the sound to zero then bring in your Ipod, Mp3, Cd player, whatever you have, and start listing to some GOOD music while reading the subs ( Don't worry you won't miss anything. All the good voice acting as it has been reduced to to crappy S**t by the attempt to recreate N64 ).
Alright enough of the negitive talk and more of the goodness of Starfox Assult. I'll narrow it down for you and the scores each gets.
1.Same classic gameplay with a few new twists. Pt 2.5
2. Storyline progession. Pt .5
3 MULTIPLAYER! Pt 2.5
4. The ultimate rental .5
Overall Score of Starfox Assult 6.5
I say save your money and rent this game.
