Fox, Falco, Peppy and Slippy save the Lylat system in this new deep space dogfighting adventure. Using the Wii U GamePad controller and the TV together creates a unique interface that allows players to experience the game with two different viewpoints within the Arwing – aim and shoot enemies in one direction while flying in another. This frees up the TV for a more cinematic flight experience. Then, pilot the Arwing with its new Walker transformation, along with the new Gyrowing and the Landmaster Tank, to traverse interplanetary terrain.
Players can intuitively pilot an Arwing by simply using both the right and left control sticks as a control stick to perform familiar flight manoeuvres, such as the somersault, U-turn and a Barrel Roll.
Fan favourite characters return with new and well-known dialogue from Fox McCloud, Slippy, Peppy, Falco and more, which can sound like they’re talking in your ear like a from a headset with clever sound technology.
Replay the same exotic planets with other vehicles and extra missions can be selected on top of going through the story.
Star Fox Zero is a slight disappointment. While on its own it is not bad of a game, graphics are disappointing and gameplay awkward, forcing you to use gamepad - it is not implemented very well. It is nice to have an old friend like Star Fox back, but the lenght of the game is almost insulting, because you can beat it in under 2 hours (50 minutes of which are the cutscenes). From the next generation of Star Fox and such a long hiatus I expected much more, but it is more or less a weaker version of Star Fox 64. Instead of releasing a mindblowing exclusive for the last year of the console, they released something that could amount to tech demo, and sadly after finishing it feels like it, because there is not enough content to warrant this price. Overall, grab it only when on sale, because there is good game underneath, but incredibly short one.
Star Fox Zero brings me good memories of my childhood when I played with the Nintendo 64, but it's a shame that this game has changed so much what is the essence of the game, you have to admit that it has very good graphics but the gameplay is left Of the side as well as the history. Although still a good game is not what was expected of him.
