    There's some serious challenge to the game if you take the time to find it, and that holds true with the 3DS version as well. Also, the game is well suited to portable play, as each mission only takes about 5 to 10 minutes to complete.

    A nice remake, similar to what was done with Ocarina of Time 3D, to fulfill the desires of players who never had a chance to experience the original on the N64. If the challenges may appear short at first, with the multiple branching in the "Adventure mode" and other new and different modes of play, most notably the scoring one, there is plenty to be done. Despite some shortcomings, it's a nicely polished title.

    Ultimately this is a solid, although quick, flight down memory lane. If you're new, then welcome to the world of Lylat Wars 64 (Sorry, Star Fox 64), and if you're an Arwing veteran, it's time to relive the experience again. Definitely well worth the purchase.

    After 14 years, Starfox 64 is still a great videogame, and this 3DS version improves the original with new visuals and a new control system. Too bad that multiplayer doesn't support the online.

    Star Fox 64 3D is a solid remake of the original Nintendo 64 classic.

    This was one of nintendo 64 best game and now its on the 3DS. One of the year best 3ds games. SO far this is the best 3d effect game. If you have a 3ds this is the game to get. There is no doubt , get it. It is worth the money.It has a lot of level and very fun to play. If you loved the 64 version then you will love this version even better. Expand

    If You've Played Star Fox 64 Before, And Have Loved It, Then You'll Love It On The 3DS! Though If You're Familiar With All The Levels And Such, This Game May Seem Too Easy, Or A Bit Old, But The New Graphics And Score Mode Make This Game A Worthy Buy. Expand

    This was one of the Highlights of the N64 and now they are bringing it back to the 3DS, and it uses the capabilities better that OOT, with missiles, lasers and more shooting at you RIGHT OUT FROM THE SCREEN!!!
    If you even slightly liked the N64 Original, then you will love this: get it. I say it's worth up to 40 quid, cause I think its better than OOT 3D. Yes, I know there are only 15 levels. Yes, I know you only play through 7 of them... BUT this has got some AMAZING replay value: 7 stages, takes 3 runs to play all stages, then play it on N 64 Mode, Expert Mode, 3DS gyro on and 3DS gyro off, already gives you an excuse to play this AT LEAST 12 times over.

    Very good, but not for everyone. This game is very good, There's no doubt about it. The gameplay is identical to the n64 version (just dont use the gyro controls, they are awful). The fun is still here and playing the game and completing it still feels rewarding. However, If you played it on the n64 you will remember that it's actually not a very long game. There are basically 3 routes to complete and accomplishments, but overall you can reach the last boss in tens of minutes. This is okay if you are expecting this kind of game, but if you are not fond of doing the same routes over and over for accomplishments, then maybe the retail price is a bit high for what you get from this game. As for myself, i love it. Expand

    Star fox 64 was originally a N64 game which has been remade on the 3DS. The graphics have definitely improved from the original with a higher polygon count and faster FPS but still with the same art style of the N64 game. The Star fox 64 3d tells of a group of futuristic spaceship or â Expand

    As another reviewer said, it's "criminally short", and that's an understatement. Within the brief time (a couple days) I owned this game, I had beaten the game several times seeking out every variation and path I could find. I guess if I had been a bigger fan of the original then maybe this would be more fun. Expand
