Star Fox 64 3D coming

I really like flying games, after squeezing most of the fun out of Pilot Wings: Resort (I'm replaying it with my Darth Vader Mii), I am eagerly awaiting the Ace Combat 3DS game.

But closer on the horizon is Star Fox 64 3D which is coming September 9, 2011.

The overall gameplay looks cool. But like Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, I've never played Star Fox 64 before. So there's no built-in nostalgia for me with these games.

And I have to say, the look of Star Fox 64 3D.... it just looks so dated. I wish they'd just make a whole new Star Fox game with updated designs. That's also part of my problem with Zelda... let's face it, Link looks stupid with that outfit in 3-D, bump mapping graphics.

I am still excited for Star Fox 64 3D though.... the core gameplay looks fun. Just not too impressed by the look of it.

StarFox 64 3D is like the launch titles (from what I hear) : Polished, but light on content. I'd recommend you buy a points card for your Wii, download the old version, and put that Classic/Retro controller to use, or the WaveBird. The new one doesn't have online (I think; Check before assuming. I could be wrong.) Plus, they didn't add much: local wireless gamesharing (with 3DS'es only. Not sure about gamesharing either, though I'm pretty sure I'm right. :) ) That, and tilt controls, which negates the 3D effect. Pretty stupid if you ask me. But yeah, I'd just download it onto your Wii, unless you have local friends with 3DSes. ......... That's all.

Oh I forgot to say: There's only 15 levels, 10 minutes in length. (I think) And if you think I'm saying this because I'm biased, I'm not. I tried a bit of StarFox 64 before on Brawl and it was good, but short. But yeah, it dependsmif you want to pay an extra $30 for 3D and portability and... nothing else really. But yeah... Now as Peppy would say...

Thanks for the info, that's good to know. I wondered about the VC version of Star Fox 64. I do have a wavebird....

I thought there was online multiplayer on the 3DS version, but I'm not sure. I'll have to look into that before buying. I am not into the idea of tilt control for this game, it just doesn't seem appropriate.... but it may be fun. I have to admit I kinda like the tilt control on Super Monkey Ball 3D-- but yes, it does negate the 3D effect as it needs to be turned off when used. I think that's ok though, I never expected both 3D & motion control to be used at the same time on the 3DS (but it would be nice if it could)
