Retro Replay – Star Fox 64

Posted on September 29, 2016 at 7:41 pm

Named Lylat Wars in Europe, Star Fox 64 is a 3D scrolling shooter game in which the player takes control of Fox McCloud, who pilots an Arwing starfighter. The game is a corridor shooter, so movement is set on a fixed path but the Arwing itself can be maneuvered along the ‘corridor’ it flies through.

The game immediately feels like a space opera, with dramatic music the second you press the start button all the way to the final credits. The voice acting is fits tone of the game perfectly and helps to make some of the characters, just, pretty awesome.

As you play there are multiple paths through the Lylat solar system, each of which have different difficulty levels with overlapping shortcuts and routes. This adds greatly to the replayabiltiy of the game and gives it an arcade feel.

The game is adored by its fans and is remembered as an iconic Nintendo game.
