Incredible, especially for its time.
26 January 2020 | by OlicosmicSee all my reviews

While video games have been around for more than 4 decades, 3D gaming has only just started getting big only 2 decades ago, and that was in the late 90s. So, you can imagine how shocked and skeptical I was when I heard a full fledged 3D game before that that was on a 16 bit console of all things. Sure, one could say the likes of "F-Zero" was kind of 3D, but it was only pseudo 3D and not actually objects moving in a 3D world. This, on the other hand, managed to pull it off and do it surprisingly well, because not only did it push the SNES to its limits, but it's also still a very fun game that's fun to this day. This is essentially a 3D shmup, and the gameplay is spot on. It feels great moving your R-Wing and shooting down enemies and bosses. This is also helped by great section structure, meaning that the game progresses very well with each place you travel through. The characters are all awesome. The idea of animals fighting for the greater good and taking orders from a general dog may sound silly on paper, but it's a premise so good, that it's still being used in later Star Fox. The sound design is top notch, as well. Whether it be the satisfying sound effects from shooting or the goofy, yet charming dialogue sounds from the characters when they reach you, it all sounds fantastic. The music is iconic from start to finish as well, with it's bombastic and almost spacey feel to it. It never fails to be stuck in my head every time I finish playing this game. The visuals, for what they are, are jaw-dropping considering the hardware it is running on. It almost feels like an N64 game, yet it somehow plays on its predecessor. With that said, though, if you were to look at this game in comparison to how far we've came from this game, this game looks incredibly primitive. Everything is modeled with plain polygons with no texture whatsoever, and they have aged like milk. Given the context, still very impressive, but this is to N64 games what Atari 2600 games are to NES games in terms of visuals. Playing this in comparison to even "Star Fox 64" is night and day to the point where this game doesn't even seem like the same type of game. The only thing helping with that are the 2D rendering of all the characters and places you travel through. Still though, the fact the visuals in this game are even able to happen on the SNES is incredible, so don't think I'm knocking it too much. This is still a fantastic game, which is why I recommend this to anyone who hasn't played it yet, especially those interested in gaming history, as this is not only a massive landmark, but also something still fun to this day. While the likes of "Star Fox 64" may be more recommended in some areas, this is still something awesome.
