Star Fox Zero Review (WII U)

on

Graphics

Starfox zero had a lot of potential and honestly I thought this game would be one of the best games this year. But overall the game was a massive disappointment and even after all it’s delays it still ended up being a disappointing game which sad. Nintendo has been disappointing me lately and hopefully the next starfox game will be good. Anyways the graphics in this game are very poor. It’s not like the wii u can’t produce games with beautiful graphics. Look at pokken tournament or Mario bros U. Those games have wonderful graphics. But yeah the graphics in this game were pretty bad. 44/100

Music

When it comes to music Nintendo never disappoints me. No matter how bad of a game they make the music always has to be spot one. The soundtrack in this game is great. The title theme was brilliant and it really had that starfox feel to it. I also really liked the world map theme. Overall I loved the music in this game. If your into video game soundtracks then you will love the soundtrack in this game. 87/100

Cinematic’s

The cinematics in star fox zero were actually quite good to be honest. The cinematics were much better than expected. To be honest the cinematics could have been amazing if the game had nicer graphics but oh well we don’t always get what we want. Overall I really liked the cinematics in this game. Nothing spectacular but it was good. 77/100

Story

An evil empire has risen and the Lylat system is in danger. As legendary space pilot Fox McCloud, blasts through an onslaught of enemy forces to bring peace to the galaxy. In this white-knuckle space shooter, it’ll take more than luck to master the Arwing jet, the Gyrowing flight drone, and the Landmaster tank! You have what it takes. Now prove it.
General Pepper needs your help! Use your TV’s cinematic view to fly and identify targets and see through the eyes of Fox with the Wii U™ GamePad’s screen as you lock onto enemies and fire. You’ll also have to use advanced flight techniques like boosting and barrel rolls to survive the relentless assault.
With the help of the rest of Team Star Fox, tackle missions in the air and on the ground in a variety of planets teeming with enemies. Then engage vast armadas of powerful ships in outer space dogfights. Master your craft, defy the odds, and earn your face-to-face meeting with Andross. Only you can restore peace to the galaxy. 70/100

Controls

Starfox Zero tried hard but failed. The controls in this game is utter trash and this is the main reason why this game is a complete disappointment. Nintendo loves trying new things but sometimes things are better off without being new. Starfox zero has unique controls but it creates a frustrating experience. It can be extremely annoying switching back and fort between the tv and the gamepad and it can be extremely confusing. Also in order to pinpoint an enemy you need to hold the gamepa up and point it in that directions. Games are supposed to be fun but playing this game is more of a chore then having fun. Overall starfox zero control’s are extremely weird and awkward. 0/100 

Gameplay

The Gameplay in starfox zero is outstandingly bad. The horrible controls creates a godawful experience. When I played starfox zero my arm started to hurt because of the awful controls. The gameplay is messy and awkward and switching between the tv and the gamepad is extremely annoying and frustrating. I don’t know why nintendo thinks everyone is in love with motion controls. Like motion controls are horrible hence the reason why the kinect died out. Nobody wants motion controls and nobody likes motion controls. Overall Starfox zero had potential and failed. 16/100

Content

It was like nintendo was trying to create the worst wii u game possible. Horrible controls,gameplay,graphics. Like Damn. All we wanted was a Starfox game for the Wii U like we weren’t  asking for much nintendo. We just wanted the return of old Fox but whatever. Starfox isn’t as big as zelda,mario or pokemon but that doesn’t mean you have to treat it like crap. Starfox Zero took me 3hrs to beat and it was filled with boring missions and tedious boss fights. The worst Wii U game yet. Disappointing. 30/100

The Good

  • Fantastic Music 

The Bad

  • Horrible Controls
  • Terrible Gameplay
  • Extremely Low Content
  • Very Poor Graphics

Verdict = 46% = Starfox Zero had so much potential but in the end it ended up being an extremely disappointing game. Don’t get this game even if your the BIGGEST Nintendo Fan.
