Starfox -- Nintendo

The evil Andross is attempting to take over the universe, and it is up to you to stop him. As wing leader Fox McCloud, you must lead your team to battle in this 3-D filled polygon space fighter simulation. The first game to use the new Super FX chip, Starfox is now available for the Super Nintendo.

Now this is a true example of where video games are heading. The real time animation that is found in this realistic sim is unbeleavable! The sound is worthy, but the gameplay steals the show. With games like this one the folks at Sega had better start showing some classy games for there CD unit real soon. To top off the game the level of difficulty is not only variable, but with the different levels you see whole new worlds, and actually share only the final world with all of the other levels. Bravo Nintendo!

The SNES now has an awesome shooter game. The polygon graphics add a strange "air" to the game. It may not be much for detail but the 3-D effect makes up for it. Music and sound effects are really good. The ship handles great and you have full control over it. With the different difficulty missions I was enthralled with the game. It lasted quite a while. The FX chip seems to have done the job. Bravo!

Slobber... Drool! This game rocks. I can't get my hands off of it. For anyone who has ever enjoyed playing a flight simulator, but wished it was faster, here is your dream come true. Fast action, instant play response, and intense sound effects make this game stand out in its class. It just crushes anything else like it, and personally, I can live with large polygon graphics if the game is lightning/realtime fast. A definite permanent addition to my collection.

Way cool! Starfox is the ultimate 3-D blast-a-thon to date. While the polygon graphics aren't super refined, they are still awesome, and the action is at a constant frenzy. While the low skill level path is rather easy, the other paths can be very challenging. Some of the levels are totally wigged out too (i.e.: asteroids with faces on them), and the ending looks like something straight out of a cyberpunk film. Two thumbs up.
