Fox McCloud returns to once again rid evil from the Lylat System in this 64-bit remake of the SNES hit.

The main aim of the game is to fly your Arwing through many levels of deadly enemies and huge end bosses with three wingmen (Slippy Toad, Peppy Hare, and Falco Lombardi) following to help you out. Every once in a while, you will also use the Blue Marine submarine and the Landmaster tank.

The 15 levels range from forward scrolling levels (much like Panzer Dragoon or some elements of Star Wars Arcade) to full 3D arenas, each with a certain goal to achieve or boss to destroy. The bigger your frags are at the end of each level determines which direction you take on the universe tree, which is split into three levels: easy, medium, and hard. All three link back to the end for the final level.

Multiplayer modes are also included, allowing four people to battle in Arwings, or if you complete every objective in the single player missions, they can battle on-foot, where the four main characters run around with laser cannons.

1001 Video Games

The N64 version of Star Fox 64 appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.


In the end sequence, there's a point where Fox, Falco, Peppy and, Slippy are running across what appears to be planet Venom. If you look closely, you'll see that Slippy is running very slightly slower than his comrades and by the time the scene fades out, he's lagging quite far behind the others.


By default, the game characters have actual spoken dialogue. However, there is an option to revert to the gibberish dialogue of the original game, which is listed as Lylat, presumably the actual language of the characters. This only affects the spoken dialogue, not the text, which is always in English (or possibly other languages as appropriate).


The seemingly normal quote "Do a barrel roll!" spoken by Peppy in this game, has become a well known meme on the internet


This was the first home video game to offer "force feedback" in a home console game, in which the game sent signals to the special "Rumble Pak" accessory attached to the controller, causing the controller to vibrate according to in-game actions.


The UK PAL edition of the game was originally released in a limited edition large box with a large poster of the Starfox Team and the new N64 Rumble Pak (for which Starfox 64 was the first compatible game).


The giant, black UFO in that one level where you help Bill the Dog's squadron was inspired by the big alien ship in the movie Independence Day. The game's manual even implies it, stating that Andross stole the technology for the ship from an Alien race. If you don't beat the UFO in time, it blows up the structure in the middle of the planet in the exact same way that the UFOs in Independence Day blew up the White House.

Star Fox 2

Originally, Nintendo intended to make a Star Fox sequel for the SNES, titled Star Fox 2. This project was almost finished until it was cancelled since the SNES was getting very aged at that time. Many of Star Fox 2's features and scenarios were recycled into Star Fox 64, however, notably the All-Range Mode and the Star Wolf Team.
