Fox, Falco, Peppy and Slippy (and their original voice actors) are back in a new adventure. Players use the GamePad to control their Arwing spaceship and see the view from the cockpit, while the TV shows the overall context of the full battlefield. The game includes a new Walker transformation for the Arwing, a new Gyrowing vehicle and the return of the Landmaster Tank. The game is scheduled to launch during the 2015 holiday season.

I haven't finished the game yet, so I didn't give it a 5, but I will say that it's pure joy so far. I would compare it to an arcade game, and i love playing the levels over and over (the reason I haven't finished yet). Also, I often judge complexity of games by how hard it is for my kids to use the. I offered my 8 year old son a try via the co-op and I couldn't get him to stop playing. Interesting - he can't handle the regular controls but excels at the motion controls. In any case, the two of us make a good team.
Other points - visuals design seems to be emulating a comic book style. Mission accomplished - I love it. Also, the sound is awesome. There is sound from the TV and the game pad, which apparently has some sort of 3D effect. Very cool.
It might now be for everyone. If you are set in your ways and want traditional controls, it's probably not for you. If you like immersive action gameplay, you might like it.
The gameplay is pretty good, the controls could have been better, but the game is overall only a decent experience, but far too brief with nearly no replay value. It seems incredibly lazy that the game is literally just the same experience we got back in the SNES days.
Many things could have been done to make this game feel like a new experience:
1) Allow players to walk around the Great Fox
2) Talk to members of the crew for new activities
3) Upgradables. Maybe Slippy allows you to upgrade your ships, Falco allows you to learn new abilities, etc
4) Skins. Why not have reskins available for the ships

I casually played the game across 3 days, beat it, and put it up with 0 desire to play it anymore after that.
+Classic Star Fox story
+New twists on old levels (like Corneria)
+Fun, fast pace, on-rails shooting
+Most of the voice actors from Star Fox 64 make a return
+-New controls are a bit hard to learn
+-Shadows and general anti-aliasing aren't impressive
-Minor motion sickness
Star Fox Zero plays and feels like a Star Fox game. My biggest gripe with it is that It took me about 5 hours to complete the game once. My Subsequent playthrough to unlock all the levels took another 2 hours. I will state that I didn't go for all the medals and that it would've taken roughly another 5-10 hours to get all the medals. I didn't go for the medals because the game doesn't provide enough incentive to chase after them.
I played Star Fox Guard once with my 2 buddies. It is a surprisingly fun coop game. They would tell me which camera on the TV screen had enemies on it. I would change to that camera and attack the enemies. It seems like a fun little thing.
The graphics are basic and almost like an HD version of the 64 Star Fox. That's not a bad thing, but with Mario Kart 8 and Super Mario 3D World looking as amazing as they do on the Wii U, I'm shocked they couldn't do any better with this game. The game runs smooth on 60 FPS and there is no freeze, lag, or slow down with the many enemies on the screen. The voice acting is pretty original and nothing out of this world. I felt they shouldn't have used a voice acting straight to the GamePad, since the game pads volume is horrible.
The Story is pretty meh - save the world from Andross, dog fight Star Wolf's team. Levels are designed pretty great though, with some slow down in pace in one or two levels. The game as a whole is not longer than an hour or 2. It depends on how well you get through the controllers and find secrets. The game is chock-full of secrets and weird hidden things to find. Trying to get medals is also another push for you to upgrade your skills to be the best. Again, the controlling takes a lot away from this for me.
Star Fox Guard is actually more fun than the actual Star Fox Game itself. Star Fox Guard gives you everything Star Fox doesn't: intense feelings of enemies coming at you; having to project your base, and continuing to do better. I'd recommend Guard over Fox sadly. Both 60 for both is a reasonable price.
