Rated 7 out of 10 by 321Halo123 Star fox command
I beat this game in just a few days but then you unlock a new thing where you play again but you make the decisions of what your going to do. The graphics are pretty good but not the best on the DS. You spend the whole game inside the spaceship shooting down enemies. The controls are very easy to use all you have to do is use the touch screen to move and do flips and shoot lasers with any button. You get to play as lots of people from starfox like peppy, falco, slippy and wolf's fighters. The levels are usually pretty easy but can get pretty hard. The explosions sound pretty good too. There is a mutiplayer mode ( I think its 6 player) where you try to shoot eachother down. If you liked other starfox games like the one on nintendo 64 or any others where you don't get out of the ship then you would probably like this. If your new to Starfox then you should probably start with a different starfox game because the story on this one is pretty confusing sometimes.
Rated 7 out of 10 by DKandDK Fun but forgetable
First I must start by saying that this game is better than star fox assault. The game is sort of a turn based strategy in which you have to defeat the enemy in a certain amount of turns. The catch is that you have to go into a classical star fox fight if you make contact with an enemy and you are timed in the fight. You control your ship with the stylus which works really smoothly. the gameplay is challenging even for star fox experts. The storyline is interesting at first but gets really forgetable in the end. There are very few levels in the game but you are supposed to play the game over and over again to get all 18 endings. The graphics are decent but they are nothing special. The characters do not have real voices so they sound like animal crossing characters. The lasting appeal is pretty bad I mean I have no desire to unlock the other 17 endings. Overall I would mainly recomend this to star fox fans or experienced flight game fans.
Rated 6 out of 10 by Acepilot Losing hope, but still have some
Star Fox has been a part of my childhood ever since day 1. Star Fox 64 being my favorite of all time. When command released, I was excited for having a Star Fox game on a handheld system! However when I got it, I was disappointed. Not so much in the gameplay, but the story. I felt like the story really ruined Star Fox for the great series it was. Although with 9 endings to keep you going, I felt most of them were somewhat stupid. I also felt some of them were an ending that I would least expect to be a Star Fox ending. As for gameplay, I was slightly disappointed as I expected d-pad compatibility if we didn't like touch controls. Still it was entertaining enough to play. The music itself is not bad, pretty much some remixes of old music, and some new music. However I hate Panther's theme. This game made me start losing hope in the Star Fox series, but I won't give up on it right away. All in all, the game is not that great, but can be somewhat enjoyable, and at the current price it's not bad. If you have a 3DS, I suggest the new Star Fox, as it makes a way better handheld Star Fox game.
Rated 8 out of 10 by JustAnEpicPerson Sadly, the last Star Fox.
Believe it or not, I THINK this is the last Star Fox. Why? Well, we will get there. GRAPHICS: Not much, same graphics you except for a DS game. SOUND: Great music, especially for the ending, I mean endings. GAMEPLAY: What make me a bit mad as soon as I started was that you have to use the TOUCH SCREEN, that's right, TOUCH SCREEN, to move. It works, but I wish you could use control pad, oh well. Touch screen sometimes does not track your actions, but it's very rare in the game to see that. LASTING APPEAL: Very short, that made me very angry when I noticed how short it was, but then I realized there are MULTIPLE endings, but why? Why not just one? That's why I think this is the last Star Fox, how can you make another one with multiple endings? Overall for 7 bucks, this is a great deal.
Rated 7 out of 10 by 2cool4skool it was alright......
this starfox game is pretty good. there is alot of things that i like about it. after you beat it the first time, which will take a while depending on how your flow through the game is. You will then get to go back and choose to do other things and take other paths that you couldnt in the first time playing. The only cons about this game is the controlls. you have to keep your ds stylus on the screen forever, sorta cramps up my hand after playing for a while. this also makes it hard to shoot down enemies. the wifi play is sorta useless now cause no one gets on. after while you do get used to the contols and its a pretty decent game. if you do buy it, you should be able to enjoy it. but starfox 64 is a way better game.
Rated 7 out of 10 by StrawberryFox Great for Starfox fans
The game returns to the Starfox series' roots with Fox and friends in the pilot's seat.
Overall this game is decent but the enjoyment will quickly fade once you discover you need to replay the game many times to unlock all of the endings and pilots, which can be a daunting task for new fans of the series.
It gives a slight recall to the glory days of Starfox 64, but it depends on how much of a fan you are of the game's air-combat style.
The graphics are surprisingly decent with minimal graphical slowdown and nice 3D renders.
It has a turn based gameplay where you draw a direct path to attack enemy bases, enemy ships or missiles before time is up you run out of turns or the attack your HQ, the Great Fox.
Along the way you collect time orbs and missiles for the Great Fox to shoot down approaching enemies.
The "fog" can be frustrating as you can only erase a small amount with your DS' stylus.
If you lose enemy ships in the fog, they will attack the Great Fox and your mission is over.
You get a nice selection of pilots to play as as well as endings once you've unlocked them all.
It's a great but easily forgettable game in the series' library.
I recommend to fans looking for something resembling Starfox 64, otherwise you're better off sticking to the original N64 version or the Wii version.
Rated 7 out of 10 by metaridley fox has seen better days...
The star fox series is a on rails shooter that is actually apropriate for kids but that doesn't make it any less of a classic than it is.This star fox i think is the black sheep of the star fox series,because mainly is that the controls are very difficult you use the D-pad to move which can be very akward and hard also the way to change your direction is to use the stylus which was a bad idea but if you can look past these problems then it is very enjoyable except that all the endings are garbage except for the one where (SPOILER!!!!!) krystal is exiled and becomes a bounty hunter.So there is stuff here to complain about but it is still fairly decent.
Rated 10 out of 10 by jonander51 The best Star Fox game
This is a great game. I have never played any starfox games before this, but this game said enough to teach me about the storyline. This game is pretty easy to beat, but it is really hard to complete the gallery by completing all nine endings. This game has the best storyline. This game is not only about air combat, but also about tactical strategy. You must navigate your ships to successfuly destroy all the enemies. For end of level bosses, you must decide what character is best for fighting them. This doesn't get boring fast, and is not very expensive. Buy it, but also buy a rumble pak if you have a DS or DS lite.
Rated 9 out of 10 by EpicFanBoy Starfox makes very good on the DS
Starfox has long been Nintendo's arcade flying shooter, as well as a contributor to their several adventure franchises. On the DS however, it blends strategy with flying. No, Starfox command is not a strategy game, NOT AT ALL, it just adds a little strategic influence of how you pick your fights on the battle field. The action has feels quite similar to the classic arcade style that Starfox so great, and it boasts plenty of familiar and new (if a bit strange) enemies, and the awesome bosses battles that we all love. Good job, Nintendo!
Rated 9 out of 10 by gamefan4564 an addicting game with disappointing endings
well the gameplay and strategy parts of this game are fun even though it strays from the original formula starfox was built on, and you will want to unlock every ending. but the endings are the real problem. I don't know what other people think of them, but I found most of them dissapointing. and I think this could have been better if you used the control pad to steer, not the touch screen. but this is a good game to play
