|Star Fox Adventures is the name for action on Nintendo Gamecube! The staff at Rareware were hard at work on this
awesome title which is finally now complete and in stores all around the world!
The USA release already had thousands lining up at stores. The word is getting around. Star Fox Adventures rules! Just
how good is it? Check out the full review for our opinion. There's also some help for those who need to find the eight
cheat tokens in the Game Help section and some news articles below relating to Star Fox Adventures
We as Americans are very lucky. Rare created the English version long before the Japanese version and other countries'
versions. Due to the selling of Rare to Microsoft, this may be the last GCN game from them, so don't miss out.
|Star Fox Adventures: A copy of other great games?
I thought I'd add this in because many of you seem to think Star Fox Adventures copies off of Zelda games. Well I have to
admit that the play control was similar to N64 Zelda games. And the style of constant fighting is present like Zelda games.
But what makes this unique and different is the variety. There is not as much fighting as it looks, but the fights are
intense and exciting. You should be used to Rare adding some puzzles and complexity into their games. And they had no
choice but to use that play control system.
No matter what you think, you shouldn't judge this game by anything it may 'copy'. It is still a great and extensive game.
Besides, it didn't stop the thousands from pre-ordering it and even more buying it. Simply put, this is an innovative game
that should not be judged by its cover.
|Dinosaur Planet for N64?
Yeah, well that's what this game was suppose to be. The story behind why the moved it to Gamecube and why the Star Fox
theme was added is here!
Dinosaur Planet was a 512-Megabyte game to be for Nintendo 64, and was suppose to be Expansion Pak required. The
developers at Rare knew that after Perfect Dark, this game would really push the limits of Nintendo 64. About the same
time, Nintendo Gamecube was announced as Dolphin to come out in 2001, and it did! The designers at Rare heard about
Nintendo Gamecube at the end of 2000, and heard of some planned games to be released such as Mario, Zelda, Wave Race
and Star Fox! It struck them that the characters in Dinosaur Planet look like Fox, and figured that Fox could be in the
Dinosaur Planet game for GCN.
Instead of changing what they started on in Dinosaur Planet for N64, they decided that it would be better off in the long
run if they have it for Gamecube as a Star Fox game! And it most certainly is. Although I was REALLY looking forward to
Dinosaur Planet, I got SFA becuase it still has some of the same original environments. The same African sort-of style
music is here, too. And the two main characters, Sabre and Krystal aren't both back, but Krystal is and she's looking
more grown up than in the N64 version. I guess Fox replaced Sabre, which was better off in the long run.
