Star Fox: Assault
Another Great Game to add to the Collection!
Many people have disliked Starfox: Assault, for reasons that I cannot seem to comprehend. As someone who is an avid gamer, and who has played the original Starfox (SNES) and Starfox 64, I found this game to be great. Many people have complained about the controls in the on-foot sections, and once again, I don't understand what they mean by this. There are three control schemes to pick from, and the "dual stick" layout works like every other third-person shooter ever. The graphics are very nice, and they have aged pretty well. The sound is one of the many points where this game really shines. Radio chatter, explosions, and laser cannons going off really add to the atmosphere. The length is pretty average for a game of the time. The game provides a good challenge, and rewards you with Xevious as a bonus game if you beat it on the "silver" difficulty. Personally, this is my favorite of the Starfox series, and one of my favorite games of all time. This game is really a must have for the Gamecube collection, TRUST ME WHEN I SAY THIS!
This my favorite starfox game
Not only dose this game have the same formula that starfox is know for as well as a third person shooter, if you love starfox and halo this game is for you
fun, but too short
In my opinion this game was loads of fun. In this game there is an equal balance of land master fights ( which are like tanks ), arwing fights, ( which are like spaceships) and 3rd person ground shooting. The arwing fights are great but it takes a while to get the hang of the controls. the ground shooting is quick paced and there is a lot of different guns to find and use. the land master fights are o.k but they are really too good aganist ground enemies and too bad against air enemies. the multiplayer is fun and could last you for some time. The graphics are o.k but the characters look boxy and the graphics are somewhat blurry. The game's in play music is great and doesn't get annoying but the voice acting is so terrible it is kind of embarasing for the producers. The lasting appeal is bad. even though you want to play the game again and again. the storyline is sooooo short that it really lowers the game's score (gameplay about 5 hours). overall worth at max 20$.
Best Star Fox game of all time!
One word can describe Star Fox: Assault : Beautiful. Although the game isn't very long, the storyline is somehow like a summer blockbuster hit, with drama and a little comic relief. Another thing that's best about Star Fox: Assault is it's music. With a perfect orchestral reincarnation of the Star Fox theme, it might as well win an award for Best Music. Graphics are perfecly rendered, and the multiplayer co-op and competitive modes are brillant. Star Fox: Assault also captures the dogfighting one expects from Star Fox (SNES) and Star Fox 64. Plus, (spoiler alert!) If you beat the whole entire game in Sliver Mode, you unlock Namco's Xevious. In all, Namco has done a wonderful job of recreating Star Fox for the Nintendo Gamecube. P.S. The only thing that Star Fox: Assault look bad is it's on ground missions.
Epic Star Fox game!!!
This game had me challenged to the max!!! I really had difficulty doing some of the ground missions. Sauria and Corneria was difficult on silver, so I practice on Bronze alot. The multiplayer is kind of meh..., but overall the best game next to Star Fox 64!!! The only thing that I hate is "help fox, help!!" from that dumb toad(slippy).
Im Impressed by Assault
It took a while before I decided to buy this game. After playing Star Fox 64, I was craving for another game. Adventures had no arwings so I didn't even bother with it. Before purchasing the game I read many reviews that made the game seem only average because of the awkward controls. To be honest the missions on foot are not bad, and actually are fun. I really wish that there were more missions in the arwing. Overall the controls and graphics were great and exceeded my expectations. Ground missions take time to get used to but get better as they go along. I loved all the sound effects in this game and loved how most of the music was recycled from Star Fox 64. The campiagn was very engaging and well done. The only issue were the voice overs, which got annoying for certian characters and took time to get used to. This is a game like Star Fox 64 that can be replayed and replyaed with the same satisfaction as the first time. Overall, Star Fox Assualt is a well made game that I would recommend to anyone who enjoyed 64. I hope more Star Fox games are made.
Good, but not that good.
For a best seller, this game was actually a little disappointing. While the graphics were amazing for a Star Fox game, the gameplay was a little too "simple." One of the first things I noticed was that headshots don't do any extra damage. This is most noticeable in VS mode. When you play against someone who's playing as Wolf, you'll notice that you have to shoot him twice with a sniper rifle to kill him. What if you shoot his head? It still takes two shots because it doesn't do any more damage than shooting him anywhere else would. Also, when you play the Corneria mission, you'll notice that the only people there are you, your buddies, and a huge army of Aparoids. Doesn't anyone live there? Another thing. When you play on silver or gold difficulty, the medals are nearly impossible to get. There just aren't that many enemies for you to kill in every level. It's really hard getting the amount of points you need for the medal. However, the game wasn't all bad. The graphics were great and mowing down enemies was very satisfying. Anyone who prefers a challenge or a relatively simple game should definetly buy this.
This is one of my favorite gamecube games. The story mode is really cool. A lot of people don't like the ground gameplay, but that is just the original 64 game fan boys. I enjoyed the game very much. Each level kept getting exciting and more exciting. Vs mode could of did better though it was missing some characters from the story mode that I wished I could of played as. One the cool things about the game was that wolf was playable in vs mode. The unlockables were okay. In story mode the first level was really cool. The boss fights were great. I wish all of team wolf were playable. The graphic were good for a gamecube game. I think you should purchase this game, if you are a hardcore starfox fan get this game as well. This game to me is the best Star fox game.
fun game alone and especially with friends!
This epic, fun, and thrilling game is awesome to play with alone,with family, and with friends! i reccomend this to all game lovers especially the ones that love adventure. this game never gets old, i would still play it on my gamecube and wii (i dont no why i still have a gamecube) but you need to get it now! haha
i think that this game is pretty good, the controls are the worst part of the game. for ground levels i think that they should have a shooting style like that of most 3rd person shooters, the cursor drifts a lot off screen too, so you cant always see what you are shooting at. but all of that is easily looked over when you are shooting up baddies in an arwing is the best part, since i haven't even play previous star fox games, i have no idea how it compares up to the others in the series. the multi play seems pretty solid, but the stages are full size, which is not too bad if you are fighting in only arwings, i think. the story is short, but if you go after the higher diffucilties then you have a ways ahead of you. also the consept of the enimes is cool how they, well i can't tell you since it would be a spoiler. if you are planing on getting this game you may want to see if star fox is right for you first.
