First Impressions: Our Maiden Flight In Star Fox Zero Prompts Mixed Emotions | Nintendo Life

One of our men on the E3 floor, Alan Lopez, had a first run on Star Fox Zero in a short session. We'll aim to have a longer playthrough - to tackle the GamePad control scheme, in particular - in a separate media session later this week.

When I got to the Star Fox Zero kiosk inside the Nintendo media room, the Nintendo rep asked me if I had ever played Star Fox before. I offered up the understatement "Yes.", and off to Corneria I was whisked.

Good reviev! I m a litle disapointed at Nintendo. What are they doing with their first HD console is terible. No suport from their side exept few titles is truly bad. I love Zelda, but can this be the only reason why i bought wii U 3 years ago? 25 years of gaming, last 10 years truly change players taste in way, what we want to play every day. And multiplayer games are in first place i`m 100% shure!

I would have liked the graphics to be a bit more polished, looked kinda jaggy and low polycount and muddy.

Yeah, The graphics look like crap... GameCube level graphics... I know the wii U isn't the most powerful system, but Mario Kart looks great at 720p60fps... There's no reason this couldn't look at least that good.

Actually, Rogue Leader on the Gamecube looked better then this, mind boggling.

Game world is being rendered 2x in Starfox this is why it doesn't look spectacular. Did you know their was an unreleased Factor 5 Wii game with both GC games with graphical enhancements looked incredible but Nintendo and Sony let factor 5 die.

people said the same for SM3DW look how that turned out.

Plus this game will get graphical upgrade with Nintendo and Platinum Games working together.

they half @ss it and this game look like it came straight off the drawing board. they went from having the best show last year to this pitiful show. they are too comfortable with their heldheld sales. if something ever happen to their handheld sector ninty would be in a world of trouble.

Listen I'm the first one to not complain about graphics or resolution but I have to admit when I did first see this new Starfox I kind of reeled my head back and said "eew".

Hopefully they can clean this up before release.

I don't know how many times I completed starfox 64. I was utterly disappointed when I saw this. At first I thought it was a remaster but to hear that this is the new starfox I'm absolutely shocked.

It looks like a half hearted rushed 1.5 sequel.

look how incredible zelda looks then look back at this can you spot the difference between which was taken to the next level?
