Star Fox Adventures

"DO A BARREL ROLL!" -Peppy Hare

OK I got that outta the way, now onto my review of Star Fox Adventures for the Nintendo Gamecube.

Now, much like my good friend StarFoxFan2009 I am a huge Star Fox fan, I remember when I heard about this game...I was excited! I remember going to Gamestop and buying it, and was it what I expected?

Well, kinda, but I'll get to that in a few.

So the game takes place a few years after Star Fox 64 and we see the game's first protagonist Krystal (Every furry's dream gal. Nothing against them though, more power to 'em!) She's trying to find clues to the mystery of the destruction of her home planet Cerinia. We then cut to one of the game's main antagonists; General Scales, the one behind the destruction of Cerinia, then Krystal gets trapped inside of a giant crystal (No pun intended) Then after that we cut to our main hero Fox, who's aboard the Great Fox and General Pepper tells them to investigate the destruction of Dinosaur Planet, a planet inhabited by Dinosaurs named Earth-Walkers. Fox has to find the missing Krazoa Spirits to free Krystal, Fox is also joined by an Earth-Walker named Prince Tricky (Who is an annoying little pain in the ass) It's up to Fox to find these spirits and bring peace to Dinosaur Planet.

OK now I know I didn't tell the whole story but I didn't wanna spoil the ending, sorry.

Now to my review;
Star Fox Adventures is a great game, did I mention it plays exactly like The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time? Yes, it plays exactly like it, you use A for you main weapon (Krystal's staff...why it couldn't be a blaster is beyond me) and B for miscellaneous items and X and Y are like action buttons (Or something like that, I haven't played this game in ages, I kinda forgot the controls) but hey, it works. The thing I love about this game is the long hours of gameplay! At least 40+ hours, now that's what I like about an RPG like Star Fox Adventures, you get so immersed into the game and you play for a long time and don't even realize. When I first got this game I must've played for like 12 hours straight and not realized. Also the voice acting is really good (Krystal's voice actress sounds cute That's something else I liked) Now the Earth-Walkers have a unique language called "Saurian" ...thank God for subtitles.

Now here's the Saurian language key, so you can create your own little secret messages:
  • A E I O U - English
  • U O A E I - Saurian
So A in English is U in Saurian and so on

  • B C D F G H J K L N P Q R S T V W X Z - English
  • R S T V W X Z B C D F G H J K L N P Q - Saurian
M is M in both English and Saurian and Y is pronounced like Ooh in Saurian and is represented as 0 but in in English is pronounced "why" and represented as Y (I thank thee Star Fox Adventures Manual Booklet)

XA M0 DUMO AJ CHUCK-Saurian

English Translation: Hi My Name is Chuck
Proper nouns, and names are capitalized and names are pronounced as they are.
That is kinda problematic with me, it's not really a gripe to me as it is an annoyance but like I've said before thank God for subtitles!

Now my main gripe with this game is that you're barely in the Arwing, that's what Star Fox was all about, the Arwing! 97% of the game you're on foot and the other 3% you're in the Arwing but you use it to fly to other planets and fight the end boss, Andross. My next gripe is the fact you use a staff, yes it's a good melee weapon and you can shoot with it but WHY NO BLASTER?!?! Some could argue it would be a little too violent and Fox wouldn't go around shooting everything from here to kingdom come, but still... I'd love to use a blaster...imagine for one sec (to get off topic) in a Star Wars game instead of a blaster you get a bamboo stick....that would suck. Also another gripe, Prince Tricky... he's annoying and constantly needs to be fed like a bratty teenager! Though he does breathe fire and that's very useful.

Now my scores:

Graphics 4/5:
Really great graphics for the Gamecube, I also like the day fading to night feature much like I did in Zelda Ocarina of Time.

Sound 5/5:
Great voice acting and the music is pretty epic

Controls 4/5:
I like how it's emulating Ocarina of Time and it really works for Star Fox Adventures

Overall 4.5/5:
I love RPGs and I am a huge fan of the Star Fox series, the game is deep and challenging, I love the unique puzzle solving and everything else. Star Fox Adventures is a great game and I definitely recommend it!

Some gameplay footage:

My fav scene in the game it's so epic:

Also, using the guide see if you can translate these sentences:

Re: Star Fox Adventures

But it only saves three or so scarabs. It's also pretty easy to find the real price for the object.

Can't you haggle in the Elder Scrolls?

Re: Star Fox Adventures

You could haggle in old games but I can't think of any atm. Usually it was pretty easy to predict what you can barter down though, the AI would say no a few times until you hit a magic number.
