Great article, though I disagree somewhat with certain sections - especially regarding the handling of the characters in Assault. I fully agree with the conclusion, Star Fox was meant to be a simple and straightforward experience, therefore most of the innovations implemented in the newer titles, like the Command's tactical sections, Assault's on foot missions or Zero's controls end up affecting the core gameplay in a negative way.

If instead of simply "innovating", Nintendo would focus on improving in what past games did right. The franchise would be in a much better shape.
