5.0 out of 5 stars Still fun September 2, 2006
By Simon
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is the original SNES Star Fox game, which puts you as Fox McCloud in an epic, space opera rail-shooter adventure. The game was notable for including the Super FX chip, which gave programmers the ability to create 3D objects with simple polygons.

I booted up this game today, and it's still a blast to run through. Yes, it's very primitive 3D - you can count the individual polygons on each object - but the designs are creative and Nintendo found some commendable ways to make distinct, varied worlds with what they had. It always marvels to see the programming feats and innovations of the 16-bit era, and Star Fox is the pinnacle of that.

More importantly, the game plays well. A couple of the later FX Chip games suffered by pushing 3D at the cost of gameplay. The framerate in Star Fox does suffer a bit in the later levels when there's so much onscreen, but overall the game plays exactly like a fast-paced shooter should. You get your upgrades, barrel rolls, adjustable settings, multiple difficulty levels, and a few secrets to discover - not bad for a game that could've just cashed in based on its graphics.

In the end, this is a Super Nintendo classic. Like the original Mario Kart, it holds up well despite the numerous sequels that have followed. Worth adding to any SNES library.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE 16-bit On Rails 3D Shooter April 23, 2003
When it comes to 3D on-rails shooters (Panzer Dragoon, Star Blade, Sky Gunner), there are a few that stand out. This is one of them. Perhaps the first of its kind (most notably because of it's polygonal graphics), Star Fox transcends the limitations of the Super Nintendo to become a classic for the ages.
Granted, the first stage isn't quite as lovely as I remember it being (the graphics are indeed quite simple and the draw distance is sadly quite limited), but once you get past it things really take off. The in-cockpit view is awesome, featuring one of the coolest looking targeting sights in gaming history. Your fellow wing-men will get in trouble and need bailing out. You can boost past your allies to avoid accidentally shooting them (or to keep from getting hit), or slow yourself down. Your ship can lose a wing, causing it to control awkwardly, and you can dodge enemy fire by spinning your craft.
Normally I would talk about negative points, but besides the date of the graphics (and perhaps the sound capabilities of the system, if midi music bothers you) could possibly hinder this game. The gameplay is awesome, and only improves with time. There are three different routes to take (and secret levels!) which adds to replay value tremendously. And let's not forget the fact that the levels are incredibly well designed, the graphics are used to maximum effect (man that hyperspace jump is awesome looking!), and the music is some of the best in any game ever.
This game is truly a classic in every way. If you love great games, you'll love Star Fox. And if you love 3D-on-rails shooters, you MUST HAVE THIS GAME!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best shooters ever January 11, 2004
Many Star Fox games have been released since the very first one that appeared on the Super NES. The only one I have ever played was the original on the Super NES, which also happened to be the most groundbreaking of all the Star Fox games, and it's a challenging and exciting game. Perhaps the only game on the Super NES to have more enemies to shoot at than the Mega Man series. The levels are packed.
You're a fox, and you fly a plane. You fly through the universe shooting and avoiding all sorts of wild looking creatures. That's basically what you do. You have animal friends available to help make your journey slightly easier. It's a good idea to try to help out your friends if they're in trouble because keeping them alive might be to your advantage later on in the game.
In Star Fox you really have to tap that shoot button because the further into the game you go, the more enemies you will encounter. This is one tough game here folks. Much harder than the Super NES Mega Man X games, and certainly much harder than the Mario and Donkey Kong Country games. But come on! You need a solid challenge every so often! But it's certainly beatable. And this game never gets tiring either.
I remember when this game first came out and how a certain store in a mall had NOTHING but this game all over the shelves. This game was packed on the shelves on the wall and the shelves in the middle of the store. It was everywhere! You couldn't avoid this game if you had to! There must have been thousands of Star Fox games at that one tiny store that one weekend, when the game first hit the market. The game was that popular.
Everyone was making a big deal about this game because of the never-before-seen graphics.

5.0 out of 5 stars BECAUSE IT'S STAR FOX March 9, 2013
Verified Purchase
BECAUSE WHEN I PURCHASED THIS, I THOUGHT IT WAS A SPECIAL EDITION OR SOMETHING. MAYBE IT WAS FROM JAPAN? BUT I THOUGHT SURELY, SOMETHING MUST BE DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND ABOUT THIS AND IT WAS THAT THIS IS JUST ANOTHER COPY OF STAR FOX.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Retro Classic and My First SNES Game! March 25, 2010
A Kid's Review
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have been looking for a SNES for a while, and so I ordered one. The best part was that it already came with Star Fox with it. For starters, this works pretty well on my 50" Samsung HDTV, and fills most of the Tv ( to my surprise, since the SNES has a pretty low resoution). I have aready the the 64 version for my Wii, and the controls are pretty much the same ( A= Nova Bomb, B= Brake, Y= Blaster, X= Boost, With "Z" L or R twice to do a barrel roll; which really does not help me). In terms of the graphics "gasp" they look really good for the Snes ( Even better for the Unreleased sequal) but with great grpahics comes the Frame Rates! The Frame Rates in this game are no too bad, but a good sign of stress on the Super FX (MARIO Chip 1) happens on the building area of the first level Corneria. During this, the music is still at regualar speed, but the controls and Arwing become really stiff and slow; so try to get rid of as many enemies (Polygons) as possible for less issues. The colours in this game are basic at most when it comes to the polygons' shading, but the backrounds are the best in terms of detail and colours. On another note, the "ground" is covered in white spots when moving. Overall being my first "FX" game and Snes game, it is really nice for its age!

P.S. I have a small issue with my power cable so I had to solder it back into working condition! And this game has NO saving, but I had no issue with Star Fox 64! And when one of your "friends" Arwings explodes, they do not come back for the rest of the game ( Slippy was the first victim), implying that they have died...
