Buy Star Fox 64 classic video game for the Nintendo 64 (N64) console. Cartridge only. Tested and cleaned. Works great. N64

Review

It is a shame that Nintendo can't clone Miyamoto, the genius behind the Mario and Zelda games. He is easily Nintendo's greatest asset, and one of the most brilliant storytellers ever to work in the interactive medium. His latest effort, Star Fox 64, is a game designed in his tradition of greatness, and it's perhaps the best N64 game seen since Super Mario 64 - which is still considered by many as the best video game of all time.

Star Fox 64, the sequel to the Super Nintendo title Star Fox, is a shooter in the truest sense. As happens in Star Fox's predecessors, you fly along and blast away your enemies while powering up your weapons. But Star Fox 64 adds quality gameplay twists that rival the game's incredible 3D graphics. These features include multiple gameplay paths (which take you through various levels depending on how well you play, including a Tomorrow Land-like city, a meteor-filled corner of space, and a post-apocalyptic battleground), a submarine and a tank level, a four-player battle mode, and the smoothest 3D flight control yet seen on a console system. Not only is the animation incredibly smooth, but every polygonal building and ship is finely detailed. The enemies are also quite varied - in fact, the final boss, Andross, even qualifies as menacingly scary (there's something terrifying about a huge ape that literally chews you up and spits you out). This game is a pleasure to look at and does the Star Wars-like storyline justice with a truly cinematic quality.

At any given time you have a variety of enemies to blast, and the game alternates between on-rails levels (where you are constantly moving forward on a track with 3D movement), and slightly more open levels where you can explore a limited area. While the game may be difficult to play at first, it includes a training mode to master the somersaults, U-turns, and power-ups. Once you get the hang of it, the game becomes a fast-paced thrill ride through multiple levels of interplanetary warfare. And unlike any game before it, Star Fox 64 uses force feedback, courtesy of Nintendo's latest peripheral, the Rumble Pak. Simply, you actually feel each shot you take and obstacle you bump into.

The plot of Star Fox 64 pits Fox McCloud against the evil Andross and his crew of monkey people set to destroy the galaxy. As Fox McCloud you must lead the battle against his minions. Your wingmen Slippy (a frog), Falco (a falcon), and Peppy (a rabbit) accompany you on missions and offer advice on each level - they can also help you out in a jam, but you should expect to come to their rescue more often than not. The interaction between the four main characters makes for some of the most entertaining voice-overs yet heard in a video game and proves that the N64 doesn't need a CD drive to offer a vast array of speech. In fact, a third of the game's cartridge is used for the memorable chatter, which includes such lines as "Let's show those monkey people who's boss," and "Oh noooo!" which is shrieked by Slippy, who's gender is, sadly, never revealed.

Star Fox 64 is the kind of game you will spend many sleepless nights with - even after you finish. The replay value will bring you back again and again. N64 owners who have been waiting to embark on their next great gaming adventure should run out immediately and buy Star Fox 64 - the graphics, sound, and gameplay all combine to create an instant N64 classic. --Glenn Rubenstein

5.0 out of 5 stars Starfox 64 November 23, 2001
A Kid's Review
... i've had this game for several years. i have played it and mastered it, beaten 1000 times, gotten every secret, and still find it is one of best gamesi have ever played. plotline is original, the ships, levels and end-levelbosses each take time and effort to master, not to mention each can be playedin two different modes (giving the game humongous replay value), the cinema is incredible, and it's a japanese fighter pilot game. those games not only are better than most others, but starfox is one of the best of those games. with it's ecrets, originality in levels, vehicles, and plotline, it's wonderful graphics, and it's rumble pack capabilities, you feel like it's reality. this will be one of the best games you ever buy, so you might as welltake advantage of it ...- TRUST ME!

Let me start by saying that Starfox 64 is one of my all time favorite games, especially because just about every aspect is near-perfect, including Graphics, Gameplay, Sound, Replay Value,....let's get right down to it. First of all, the graphics are sharply defined, and make good use of the N64's tendancy to produce blurry graphics. The animation is very fluid, and there'e no slowdown--ever. The visuals also succeed in producing a wide variety of emotions; isolation, confusion, awe, terror, grandeur, joy, anything. Which goes right along with the music, since it achieves the same thing. The heroic tunes are just about the best I've ever heard on the Fun Machine, and the sound effects, such as large explosions and laser beams tearing up the ground, are pretty nice. Some people may be deterred my Slippy yelling "Fox, get this guy off me!", but trust me, the rest of the voice samples and in flight chatter really just add to the experience, and only a few people suffer severe hemorrhages from Slippy's antics. Now, to the gameplay we go, which is absolutely top-notch. You're mostly on rails going either left or right paths in some situations, or in the excellent all-range mode sections. You'll be piloting a tank once per game, the rest of the missions being in your Arwing, unless you get to Aquas, where you pilot a submarine with unlimited torpedos! Missions in general are similar, but some offer a lot of variety, like destroying missles heading towards the Great Fox before they damage it, getting into epic dogfights with the Star Wolf team, or activating a series of switches to set a train off course, crashing straight into Andross's supply depot! Multiplayer is all right, but most people don't care about it, or hate it. For me, at least, replay value is as high as it ever could be; there's just something about this game that will have me still playing years from now (though beating it is a bit easy).

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, He is Back November 18, 2001
Starfox was one of the premiere games for the Super Nintendo, boasting some of the best graphics that any platform of the time could show off and yes the game, at the time, did deliever in what could be described in a "Tour de force" performace. When the game transitioned making it's way onto the Nintendo 64 I had to hail the calling of this game and buy it, so I did. The result? I was as happy as any person could have been after spending the money for this game, and it was worth it. The game is easy to beat, but, only on the easy route. There are hundreds of ways that give this game a replay value that could be unmatched at the time, such as getting medals for every planet in the "Galaxy" in order to unlock expert mode, or the ability to win tanks in multiplayer mode, or even be able to fight on foot. So, is this game worth the money you would pay for it now? yes, give this game a home on your shelf. Enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Both good and bad March 24, 2001
The one player mode is excellent. The controls are easy to master and the game itself is easy. The graphics are excellent and the music is sweet! The characters actually talk (Unlike on the SNES). This is a game that will last a long time.
Too bad multiplayer isn't the same. The mode is fun, but suffers from lack of options. The character you play has depends as to what port your controller is plugged into. And the only four characters are the starfox team (Fox, Slippy, Peppy and Falco). There are only three levels and two powerups. However, by beating the game on higher difficulties, you can unlock the tank and the ablitly to play the characters outside of the vehicles to supplement the Ar-Wing. The multiplayer mode is fun, but only with at least one other person. For better multiplayer mayhem, get goldeneye or Super Smash Brothers. Mario Kart isn't bad either.
All in all, starfox delivers with a spectacular single player mode. However, it fails to hit that same mark with it's multiplayer mode. Let's hope Nintendo fixes that with a sequel.

4.0 out of 5 stars "If I Go Down, I'm Taking You with Me!" (by Laura) November 23, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
*The title is a quote from the final boss, Andross*

A more accurate rating for this game, overall, is really 4.5 stars; but, of course, Amazon won't let you grade in "half stars." A true masterpiece, Starfox 64 stands as one of the greatest games ever created for the Nintendo 64, and perhaps even all time. I recently got it as my first and only Star Fox title; and, though I'm normally not a fan of games with shooting and space ships like this, this game succeeded in impressing! Analyzing its features step by step, it's pretty hard to find reasons why this game shouldn't be loved:

Storyline 10/10: The story is absolutely captivating! Though it starts out pretty simple and generic (the galaxy and Corneria are being threatened by Venom, someone save us, etc.) the backstory behind it is pretty detailed, the intro is epic, and the story itself takes on a whole new life when you start playing! Actually, YOU are the one who controls the story to a degree: you can pretty much decide, through skill and/or choice, whether things go great or awful for the Star Fox team, a heroic pilot crew you can manipulate. You control Fox McCloud, and only Fox McCloud, but you also associate with the three pilots of Peppy, Slippy, and Falco; why, just protecting Falco and doing certain actions on the first level can decide which way the story goes! This game does a great job of drawing you into its world and making you want to figure out what's happening.

Characters 9/10: I have to commend whoever came up with these interesting characters: they make the game! Even on your own crew, each one is distinctive: Falco, for example, plays along the lines of "the tough guy with a secretly caring heart.
