A fabulous Zelda-like Star Fox RPG!

The Good

In case you're all wondering, SFA is an RPG similar to the 3D Zelda games. I'm gonna let y'all know how good this game is now.

Graphics (10/10):

Whoever did the graphics in SFA deserves to be rich. The graphics are the most impressive I've seen in a Zelda-like RPG. The sky effects are impressive, and the day and night times look quite realistic. And I like the way they make the hair on Fox look so real. Check out the way some of the environment and enemies look, these to me just show one what our 'Cubes can do.

Music/Sound/Voices (9/10):

Some of the music featured in Star Fox Adventures is pretty neat, especially the Arwing music and the racing music. Most of the voices in this game are nothing to complain about. I like Fox's voice and General Scales' voice and the WarpStone has a nice Scottish accent.

Gameplay/Control (10/10):

If you've played Ocarina of Time, you pretty much know already what the gameplay and control is like. This stuff is very similar to OoT except there are a couple of changes, you open up the inventory with the C Stick and you attack with A and put the staff away with B and the rolling is now done with X and you can assign an item or an upgrade to Y. I like the control, and fans of Star Fox, Zelda and RPGs should too. And the gameplay is awesome.

Oh, and I should mention that the Arwing missions are pretty fun too. You're flying around in the Arwing to reach a certain part of the planet while flying through gold rings to open the forcefield.

Replay Value (9/10):

This game has a lot of replay value in it. I never got bored with this game for months. Actually, there's not that much in it, but it's still good nonetheless. I could go back and find the cheat tokens after I beat the game the first time and that's about it. But this game is so much fun that you could actually start a new game and play again.

The Bad

Arwing missions are sparse, and Tricky's constant "Ah, come on Fox! I'm hungry!" and "Where are we going?" can get moderately annoying after some time.

The Bottom Line

Overall: 10/10

I highly recommend this to Nintendo/Star Fox fan's everywhere. I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
