Summary

What do you get if you add starfox, Zelda, starwars, and talking dinosaurs, this load of stinking tripe.

The Good

The graphics are some of the best I have ever seen, rare have really milked the gamecube’s capabilities and have packed a lot graphical treats in to it as well as it being technically masterful and skilfully coded. And a few of the little minigames are sort of fun.

The Bad

Where’s the gameplay eh rare? If the developers spent as much time on the game’s structure and puzzles it would be amazing, but they err, haven’t, they have simply put there effort on the good graphics and forgot about the rest of the game sadly. Its structure is very linear and the puzzles are laughably easy, if you’re a Zelda fan you will stroll through it very quickly. Speaking of Zelda, this Starfox has a nasty habit of simply aping everything that oricania of time does, making it strangely familiar… though obviously not as good since it doesn’t have half the excellence or fun or the genius of any Zelda title. The plot is quite frankly a load of stinking rubbish; I haven’t herd such rubbish since sonic adventure, some of the cut scenes are funny as they try to be emotional, exciting or epic and end up being silly. Another thing sonic adventure has in common with Starfox is the horrible voice acting it’s terrible, window smashingly bad. Oh it’s also far too easy and lacks in after game fun. It really should be better since to all to development time and hype surrounding it.

The Bottom Line

All graphics, no substance
