    Regardless of which version you purchase, Starlink: Battle For Atlas will provide one of the best console space shooters in years, and is now my favorite Star Fox game of all time.

    Starlink as a new franchise isn't perfect, but it's still a whole lot of fun. [Issue #37 – January/February 2019, p. 71]

    A title that begs for a sequel. As a proof of concept, it’s an absolute success as there are plenty of impressive moments and pieces of tech that help it stand out from other massive action games.

    As conflicted as I am about Starlink Battle for Atlas, one thing is clear: if you’re buying it, you should definitely get the Nintendo Switch version. Not because you get the extra Star Fox content, but rather two in-game starships — that advantage means your chances for survival instantly double without breaking the bank.

    Starlink: Battle for Atlas can become a good starting point for a new franchise with a toys-to-life concept done the right way. Sadly, its repetitive nature lacks the ingredients to keep you hooked.

    Starlink Battle For Atlas is probably the best way of doing a toys-to-life game, but the game itself is a bit repetitive. Thankfully the fights are spectacular and there are many amazing combo's to make, which kind of saves the game.

    Before you know it, Starlink turns playing with toys into something that feels an awful lot like work.

    I can't stop playing - OMG - this game is so good. It's really hard to write in a few lines why Starlink on Nintendo Switch is so good.I can't stop playing - OMG - this game is so good. It's really hard to write in a few lines why Starlink on Nintendo Switch is so good. Ubisoft has nailed it - this is far the most beautiful innovative open-world RPG mixed into Star Fox / space battle world + a really interesting RPG. Last night I forgot all about the clock - and it's really a long time since any game has been that good, thank you Ubisoft and Nintendo!
    I'm 38 and really enjoying the toys lol, it's so snap and one thing I noticed no one tells, the light from the Nintendo grip, there is blue led light in the ships, Arwing with light or Neptune.....awesome. The gameplay can at first hand look a bit repeatable BUT when you get 20-30 hours gameplay - you'll see how the whole star system is alive....I'm amazed. I left planet Haven from start which gave me a challenge last night.....the WHOLE PLANET was invaded, oh dear! Game on!
    The game runs incredieble fantastic on the Switch docked/handled (omg, handled I can continue in bed digitally :P) - graphics WAUVV, the lightning and textures. Sounds is also really intop that universe......I loveeeee the sound in my subwoofer when I'm leaving the planets atmospheres, BOOMMMM and TOTAL silence in space :P ...the Prime battle music is also epic.
    Fox and his team is merged beautiful into the storyline + the Wolf Star hunt is amazing.
    Happy it's weekend....ROCK'N'ROLL BOYS!
    PS. Star Fox theme on special abillity, ohhh yes Ubisoft, that's the way we like it.

    Pros: Buena jugabilidad, hay un sistema de armas elementales que puedes hacer buenos combos y existen resistencia elementales y debilidadesPros: Buena jugabilidad, hay un sistema de armas elementales que puedes hacer buenos combos y existen resistencia elementales y debilidades elementales asi que nunca pasas solo con un arma, estilo artisco muy bonito y el contenido de star fox esta muy bien implementado.
    Cons: La historia principal se siente muy simple y que hay cosas que no son explicadas, si hubiesen implementado algo como informes narrados como los que se encontraban en dead space para explicar algunas cosas hubiera sido perfecto para que el lore se enriqueciera, solo hay unas 5 o 6 tipos de misiones y solo eso pasaras haciendo pero la dificultad ira avanzando mientras progresas.
    En resumen si te gustan los combates aereos y no te importa hacer misiones similares siempre pero que van siendo mas dificil cada vez es un juego que recomiendo, si no pasalo o espera una oferta, la version basica digital trae la mayoria de cosas que necesitas, si eres como yo que solo juega con el arwing y fox no extrañaras los otros pilotos y naves que no vienen en el pack digital basico, y en cuanto a armas solo faltan 3 y puedes comprarlas como dlc mas adelante si quieres, asi que tienes variedad de formas de comprarlo y jugarlo.
