Reviews Summary

Summary: Star Fox Zero is a divisive game for critics. Some say its controls are awkward, some say they are good. Some say its graphics and environments are drab, some say they are gorgeous. Certainly this game should be played with some discretion

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.

7.5 / 10.0

Star Fox Zero's fun stages and impressive boss fight give me lot of reasons to jump back in and play them over and over, and especially enjoyed them in co-op until I got a hang of juggling two screens myself. I've played 15 hours and I still haven't found everything. Learning to use the unintuitive controls is a difficult barrier to entry, though it comes with a payoff if you can stick with it.

No Recommendation / Blank

Platinum Games takes a quirky experiment and fleshes it out into a enjoyable Star Fox revival that's stretched a little too thin.

The sort of expertly orchestrated action you'd expect from a team-up between Nintendo and Platinum, but the lack of innovation is a little disappointing.
