|For his first title on GameCube, Fox McCloud embarks on an epic adventure taking him away from the cockpit of his Arwing spacecraft. Developer Rare's final game on the Nintendo console finds the ace pilot traveling to the mysterious Dinosaur Planet on a mission to save it from breaking apart. While the game offers a series of shooting stages patterned after the two previous Star Fox games on the Super NES and Nintendo 64, the main focus of play takes place directly on the planet. |
Players guide Fox from a third-person perspective while battling enemies with a staff. This staff can be twirled around as a melee weapon and upgraded to shoot projectiles such as fire and ice, which are used to defeat enemies as well as to open doors or solve puzzles. The staff can also be used to trigger small earthquakes and disguise Fox as an enemy soldier. In addition, specially marked areas enable the staff to function like a rocket or portal device. Targeting creatures follows a similar system to the one introduced in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
Dinosaur Planet is broken down into numerous areas or lands, each offering distinctive terrain, creatures, and landmarks. Since the inhabitants are in dire need of assistance, players must speak with the creatures to learn which quests must be completed in order to advance. Enemies standing in the way include the dreaded SharpClaw soldiers, led by the evil General Scales, who will try to gang up on Fox at every opportunity. Various mini-games are also found throughout the world, including jet bike races, dinosaur rides, and more.
In addition to completing quests on behalf of the peaceful dinosaurs, which generally involve retrieving certain objects or a group of items, players will be able to gather currency in the form of scarabs to purchase helpful equipment or to pay off bribes. Fox will also periodically team up with a small Triceratops named Tricky who can dig for secret items buried underground or reveal hidden passageways with his breath. By purchasing a ball from the local shopkeeper, Fox can help evolve Tricky into a more powerful ally.

If you're looking at this game thinking that it's like the original flight simulator game, then you'll be disappointed - until you play it, that is. Instead, Adventures presents a new take on the Star Fox character by presenting us with an adventure game that is much like a Legend of Zelda game. You'll explore various worlds, use various weapons and items, fight off bad guys and bosses, all while trying to conquer a mission and defeat a super villain. Along the way there will be people to meet, tasks to accomplish, enemies to smash and puzzles to solve. Basically, as I said, this is JUST like a Zelda game...if you like adventure games and if you like Zelda, you will love this game. The graphics are very good, the controls are easy (especially since there's a diagram in the corner of the screen), and it's just a smooth presentation. Some people might have problems with this because there can be a lot of back tracking or trying to figure out where to go next, but these little tricks make the game what it is. Again, this is JUST like a Legend of Zelda adventure game...just with different characters in a different world. What's fun is that it takes place on various planets and you're enemies are a race of dinosaurs. You will use some very unique items to accomplish your tasks, and your weapon is this magical staff which has a variety of powers that will help you on the way. If you like Zelda games, you will love this game just as much. There are some flying missions involved as you travel from world to world...but they're terribly easy and pointless. You'll have to avoid some astroids and such, some small fighters, but the flight missions are nothing like they were in the original game. Some people might be turned off by the addition of this little dinosaur who follows you around like a dog, but it's very cool. You'll control him and he is vital to helping you through the levels. He'll dig in certain spots, breathe fire, stay and hold down a switch for you...it's quite cool trying to figure out how to beat certain puzzles, using the variety of items and powers you have. The game is also pretty long and doesn't get too repetative with the exception of the ocassional backtracking. All in all, it's a great game that could have been an excellent game had the flight missions been better executed.
The game plays more like a 3D Zelda adventure title than a Starfox space combat game, but in that respect it's a pretty good game. The graphics were great for Gamecube's day and the game introduces Krystal, my personal favorite character of the entire series. The staff combat, while repetitive, is addicting and cool, featuring impressive and satisfying spins and twirls. The game follows the Zelda style to a T, complete with dungeon quests, village overworlds, a shop (featuring a memorable shopkeeper who you haggle with), and an annoying sidekick (surprisingly not Slippy). Oh, and speaking of characters, Falco doesn't appear until the very end. Ah well.
The game does feature some space combat, but very little and nothing memorable. The staff is the game's main feature; you upgrade it with new powers as you progress. SFA's music is especially good, coming from the amazing team at RARE (the same group that did Donkey Kong Country, Banjo Kazooie, Goldeneye 64, and Perfect Dark). While there are some obvious flaws in the game (there appears to be a boss battle that was removed at the last minute) overall it's a great title and worth getting for a Nintendo or Gamecube collector.
Alright people, 1st off this is totally different than Star Fox and Star Fox 64. There are very few times you will actually fly the Arwing, and when you do, it's very short and not much detail.
This turned off a lot of people, but I gave it a try, and wow, it is actually very fun.
You will spend the majority of time on the ground, searching for the spirits of Krazoa and bringing back the Spellstones to repair Dinosaur planet. The game is very, very similar (actually, almost the same) to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time in it's gameplay, fighting, and boss fights.
You will wander around an adventure field, and go in to some areas that are very large and full of secrets on your quest. The controls are great, and the camera has yet to mess up on me. The graphics are very, very nice (especially for it's time), the gameplay is smooth, and it makes you want to beat it to find out the ending.
This is a long game, especially if you don't go on the Internet and look up walkthroughs. There is a great mixture of puzzles, timed-missions (none of which are too hard to complete), and fights to keep you guessing as well.
The only complaint is that the gameplay can get a little repetitive during the middle of the game, but once you get past that, you will enjoy finishing it up.
If you can get this game cheap as I did on eBay, you will be getting well-worth what you spent.
I'd give this game an 8/10.
First of, if you are a fan of Zelda or any platform game along the same lines you are going to love this game. Star Fox Adventures plays a lot like Zelda but at the same time stays true to the original Star Fox roots we are used to. Yes the game takes place on foot but it is a good way to get to know a large variety of new and old characters alike. The game takes place on a planet inhabited by Dinosaurs which makes for interesting boss battles and platforming. Your primary weapon is a staff you find early in the game which has a huge selection of magical abilities. This game is a must have for Star Fox fans, especially if you were waiting for the day you could step out of the cockpit and into Fox McClouds shoes and this game does it justice.
I bought this game for my 14 year old son. He loved playing it, and I loved watching him play it. I was like a story unfolding as he played. There are different dinosaurs and other creatures, and different "worlds" in which missions have to be completed. There is a story line and a damsel in distress. I do not think that any part of it would be inappropriate for children of any age, however it may be a bit difficult, in some spots, for youngsters who are not very experienced with video gaming yet. It took my son about 1 week to beat the game (most of them he beats in 1 or 2 days). I am going to have to get him some harder games! Star Fox Assault was not as good. They should have stuck to this format when they continued the Star Fox series. Good game!
