Do We Really Love Star Fox, or is it Just That One Game?

End of the Week Writes:

"I love the Star Fox series. Except for the first SNES one, I've played all of them and have enjoyed every single last one. I spent hours of my childhood trying to find the most cinematic path in Star Fox 64, I nearly broke my thumb traversing through Adventure, I do annual speed runs of Assault just to listen to the epic soundtrack, and I unlocked every ending in Command and even blew up my friends in its wi-fi multiplayer. I'm super psyched that Star Fox 64 is being remade and updated for the 3DS but I can't help but wonder, why did it take so long between Command and 64 3D for there to another Star Fox game?" (3DS, Nintendo DS, Star Fox, Star Fox 64, Star Fox 64 3D, Star Fox Adventures, Star Fox Command, Wii)

I'd buy any Starfox game made for 3DS or Wii U. I like Starfox

The snes one didn't interest me, I hated it and still hate it today. However, Starfox 64 was an awesome game, far better than its predecessor.
JsonHenry  +   1522d ago
I liked StarFox64 better as well.
Canary  +   1522d ago
I liked it on SNES and N64... until I discovered other, better sci-fi shooters, like Freespace and mechwarrior.

Right now... Starfox doesn't interest me at all. The only reason I have to pay attention to it at all is to maintain the dull glimmer of hope that the sci-fi sim genre might make a comeback.

A new Mechwarrior game would be cool. Not to many games out there in that genre I assume. It would be cool to be able to add weapons that you want and customize your mech before heading into battle online or with friends. And Starfox 64 is a classic awesome game.

Starfox 64 was an awesome game, far better than its predecessor on the snes. The countless hours of playing multiplayer with 3 friends are so no wasted.

None of the star fox games were as good as N64. Im sure nintendo can make a good one but it needs to be done right. Nintendo said if you want more star fox buy 64 3d or we'll probably never see him again.

starfox adventures is a great game
GamingDead  +   1522d ago
There have been no new Star Fox games because the creator said he hated where they were taking the game and that he wont let another game be made for years

Star Fox 64 shall never be beaten. I spent so many hours on that game.
Samus HD  +   1522d ago
snes version good too
Prototype  +   1522d ago
The only 2 Star Fox games I liked (and really played) was on SNES and Star Fox 64; never got to really play the rest.

I liked the SNES version since at the time it was something different and I liked the special stage "Black Hole." Star Fox 64 I remember getting all the gold medals; and I also remember how fun the multiplayer was.

I feel the same way with starfox. Loved starfox 64 but didn't care much for the first. Lookin forward to the 3ds version.
Calidreth  +   1522d ago
The SNES version is certainly a classic, but the 64 is without a doubt the best in the series. Boy did Adventures and Assault suck though.
Blasphemy  +   1522d ago
Never played the first Star fox but I thought Star Fox Adventures was a nice refreshing change from the N64 Star Fox. Didn't feel to much like Star Fox but it wasn't a bad game.

I spent so much time on Star Fox 64 trying to get the highest score I could get and played the multiplayer with family whenever I had a chance.

I can agree with you on Star Fox Assault though that game was terrible.

star fox is unique. not many games that star fox around.
maniacmayhem  +   1522d ago
too funny when you think about it.

there have only been two good starfox games. snes and n64.
Moerdigan  +   1522d ago
the first starfox is still my favorite.
A7XEric  +   1522d ago
I'd say I love the series overall. SF64 is definitely everyone's favorite, and though many scoffed at it, Star Fox Adventures was an amazing Zelda clone even though it didn't feel like "Star Fox"
IQUITN4G  +   1522d ago
Some of you lot showing your age on here. Snes Star Fox is an amazing game and considered to best the best of the series by many
Xander-RKoS  +   1522d ago
Maybe it is my age, but I still hear many people prefer 64.
Magnus  +   1522d ago
Star Fox was great on the SNES and the N64 cannot wait for the next game to come out.
A7XEric  +   1522d ago
Word, hopefully Nintendo doesn't outsource development to namco again. I wouldn't mind to see Retro take a stab at a new Star Fox game to be honest.
Xander-RKoS  +   1522d ago
Honestly, whatever Retro touches turns to gold. I like Assault, and think that people are over critical of it (for the reason this article points out).

However, Retro would definitely do the game franchise a great service.
A7XEric  +   1522d ago
Yea Retro has done awesome work, but I'm just worried how their future work will be affected since two of their lead designers left since DKCR released.
Shnazzyone  +   1522d ago
I seriously still love to death the snes title, love even more the n64 title. But we haven't had something since then that's resonated with me quite as much. It's a testament to how good those games are and why if Big N wants to do a new one they need to do it right.
