    Better than the original!, June 17, 2016

    I am a HUGE Star Fox fan so this game excited me a lot when it was announced. Having played through Star Fox 64 for countless hours, this remaster of the game was gorgeous on the 3DS and made very good use of the 3D available to the system. The game is 98% identical to the original one and overall, I would say superior in almost every single way.

    Positive Changes from 64:

    – You can now select specific missions after you have gone through them once (GREAT feature especially if you just want to crank out some of the later missions on a commute)
    – Now there’s a specific score attack mode with even more challenging goals for medals
    – 3DS gyroscope control mode which actually surprisingly works rather well for this game
    – Local DS Download multiplayer that is pretty fun
    – Changed Falco’s line to “Hey genius” instead of “Hey Einstein.” There’s less sass but it’s consistent with their world at least so I like it.

    Negative Changes from 64:

    – Multiplayer lacks the ability to play in the Landmaster or on foot as in the original game
    – Some of the music score remasterings I did not like at all. One of my main complaints was the Boss C track remastering. The beginning just sounds SO wrong

    FINAL THOUGHTS

    Overall, I found the game to be a satisfying experience and if I could remove nostalgia goggles, I would have to say that it is better than the original. It is truly one of the greatest games of all time remastered with modern graphics for a modern system. I think fans of the N64 version would enjoy it, but also anyone who is a fan of space flight combat would also love it as well. There are rich space environments ranging from an asteroid belt to an ocean planet, a lava planet, etc. Go out and buy this game while you still can!

    I have a lot of fond memories of my time with the Nintendo 64 console. From Super Mario 64, to Mario Kart 64, to GoldenEye 007, and others. The Nintendo 64 was a great system with so many classics. However, sometimes when you go back to play games you remember fondly, things don’t end up being the same. It may be the gameplay, the controls, or the visuals, but something ends up feeling off. Thankfully with Star Fox 64 3D, that is not the case, it is still as fun and entertaining as ever. In other words Star Fox 64 is still a classic, and now in 3D.

    I won’t write a long review since most of the other reviewers have already said so much about Star Fox 64 3D, but instead I will point out a few things that make this release worth a look. For one, just like the original Star Fox 64, this game remains perfectly balanced for all players. Just beating the game will be easy enough for most players, it really won’t matter if you have limited experience with shooters like Star Fox. It really is easy enough for anyone to pick up and enjoy. However, earning a medal (which requires eliminating a set number of enemies) on each stage remains a good challenge to this day. This is what made Star Fox 64 so great when it first came out on the Nintendo 64. Obsessive and completest gamers had something else to shoot for with these medals, while everyone else could simply beat and enjoy the game for the fun it provided. Chances are most will become obsessed with earning all the medals again with this release.

    The levels themselves also remain fun to play through now, but best of all they look better than ever. The game was given a nice facelift for the 3DS so everything looks cleaner and more vibrant than they do on the Nintendo 64 (which still looks good to be honest). It is nice to replay through the levels and see the little touches that were made for this version, especially if you still remember the original vividly. I just wish they had designed some new levels, which brings me to one of my slight disappointments with this release.

    As great as it is to replay a classic with some nice new visuals, it would have been great to have some more additional content, particularly new levels. I do understand this is not a new installment in the Star Fox series, but a 3D update/re-release of Star Fox 64. However, considering how well Star Fox 64 plays and looks on the 3DS, I can’t help but wonder what some new levels that took full advantage of what the 3DS could do would have looked like. Regardless, this is a minor complaint as the old level are still so fun to play.

    Star Fox 64 3D is a classic revisited that is worth playing. That is not always the case with re-releases, whether they are 3D or HD (or both). Often with re-release you tend to wounder why you had love for the original release or you see blemishes and bad ideas you missed the first time through. Thankfully that is not the case with Star Fox 64 3D, it remains a classic worth playing.
