Andross. There are 3 courses of difficulty and plenty of weapons and
power ups to get the job done. Your team is Falco Lombardi, Peppy
Hare, and Slippy Toad. They will assist you on you adventure. There
is also a simulation view which bring you inside the Arwing. The
practice mode will help you get better at the control stick and make
it easier when you do the harder routes. Use every trick in the flight
manual to get your self through many of the obstacles as you Spin,
Boost, Attack and dodge obstacles in almost any way possible!
Graphics 4 out of 5
For Super NES game the graphic are out standing! This game uses the
FX chip, which make the environment look much more like a 3
dimensional one. Sometimes though, the graphics may slow the game
down (which rarely happens) if there are to many objects on the screen.
All the enemies are 3D animated as well as the bosses of Star Fox, which
make this game one of the best games to own on you Super NES or
Famicom System. The brilliant colors also add to the games
environment. There are also excellent animation sequences, such as the
escape from Andross and much more! There is also a cockpit view, which
put you in the driver's seat of the Arwing.
Music and Sound 5 out of 5
Star Fox was perhaps one of the only Super Nintendo game to have a
talking sequence. The 3D sound add to the environment as well. The
sound FX are excellent as well as the level music. The Talking sequences
are almost as clear as they are on a Nintendo 64. There are no late sound
FX or mistakes in the sounds. The radio voices are also good to let you
know who's talking. For example, if your in the middle of a fight, and
you here Peppy's voice, you should see what he's saying to you or if it's
Slippy, you can pretty much ignore it unless your in control of the situation.
Game Challenge 4 out of 5
Star Fox has 3 difficulty setting. And each setting is a route to a
new course. So don't think the Hard course has the same levels as
the Easy course. The easy course is represented as "Level 1". It is
the default setting for Star Fox. The Ending also depends on which
course you take. The Medium Course is represented by "Level 2", the
course furthest to the left of your screen. It's still not to tough but
harder than Easy. The Hard Course is represented by "Level 3."
