Starfox The Third Of The Series Known As Two.
18 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Star Fox 64, also known as Lylat Wars in Europe and Australia (due to trademark issues), is the second game in Nintendo's Star Fox series and the sequel to Star Fox. It was released for the Nintendo 64 in 1997, and later ported to the China-only IQ in 2003.

The planned second game in the series for the Super Famicom/SNES, Star Fox 2, was scrapped, but a good deal of it was in Star Fox 64.Star Fox 64 was the first game to introduce support for the Rumble Pak.

star-fox 64 is mainly the third in the series which would have been called star-fox 2 which is actually star-fox Assault for game-cube.

Released in 1997 for the Nintendo 64, Star Fox 64 (Lylat Wars in Europe) was the next step in the series. Included in the game was the Rumble Pak as force feedback. It also introduced full spoken dialogue, fully three dimensional graphics, and new vehicles and characters. Star Fox 64 is often considered the beginning of the Star Fox canon, and is one of the more popular games in the series.

Star Fox 2 was the sequel to Star Fox, again developed by Argonaut. However, the game was never released even though it was completely finished, although many of its new ideas were implemented for the forthcoming Star Fox 64, such as the rival team Star Wolf, All-range-mode and a multi-player mode.

The wicked scientist Andross has been sent to exile on the deserted planet Venom, and one day strange activity is spotted from the planet, Corneria. An Arwing-team consisting of Pigma Dengar, James McCloud and Peppy Hare are sent to investigate. Upon their arrival, Pigma betrays the team and James and Peppy are captured by Andross. Peppy barely escaped, but James did not survive. Peppy then heads back to Corneria to tell James' son Fox about his father's fate. (Depending on your path, James' spirit might be set free at the end of the game and he will help Fox escape from Venom.)

Upon learning the news of Pigma's betrayal a new team is assembled consisting of Fox McCloud (the player), Falco Lombardi, Slippy Toad and Peppy Hare. Fox is the final hope of putting an end to Andross' madness and thereby securing the peace of the Lylat System.

A notable difference from the original game's story is that the Star Fox team, albeit being mercenaries in both games, already possess Arwings when they are called to help defend Corneria whereas in the original game they are recruited to act as pilots for the newly developed Arwings. However, in the Nintendo Power Official Player's Guide the Arwings are referred to as four prototypes.

mainly i think it is or would be the best star-fox game i have ever played as known as a star-fox god because i have nearly everything of it and a member plus fan as well, as the second game but this just has a more better story to the fact that it is not just a game it's a fantastic game. i know that anybody who likes sci-fi games similar to star wars or star-trek then you would enjoy this much more in a different style. you will need the old console or download off online, there is one site which is good- in lower case- ratings for game graphics-91%--gameplay-97%---sound/fsx-95% overall= 98% in my opinion see star-fox sites for more information! thanks bye.

be there or be square! 10/10!
