    Star Fox Guard may be the most fun I’ve had playing a video game all year.

    Star Fox Guard is smart and funny. A clever way to set up a different kind of tower defense game, at a reasonable price.

    Nintendo set out to build an experience centered around the GamePad with Star Fox Guard, and the result is a great little experiment — if a wee bit overwhelming.

    This is a great surprise, and we've really enjoyed our time with it. It is true, however, its formula gets old after a few hours, but considering its price, it's a good choice.

    Under normal circumstances a title like this wouldn’t have been worth a $60 price tag, but free is an entirely different story. It has a surprising amount of content, but ultimately suffers from lack of variety.

    The game perhaps could have done with more tower defence elements to extend the idea further, but as a standalone package it's a compelling little gem that does well in framing the GamePad's benefits and is worth a try.

    Every time Star Fox tries to do something out of its space-combat comfort zone it fails. Star Fox Guard sadly continues this tradition of games that make you go “meh” when Fox and the gang step away from their Arwing cockpits.

    Better than Star Fox zero. And this was the bonus game. Let's see. Great control set up. No forced Motion controls. Simple to learn difficultBetter than Star Fox zero. And this was the bonus game. Let's see. Great control set up. No forced Motion controls. Simple to learn difficult to master. It's addicting.

    The Status of better than the game it came free with may well change if they patch in an no motion control mode for Starfox zero. Which wouldn't be entirely unwelcome.

    A surprisingly solid tower defense spin-off set in Star Fox universe, the game is quite addicting.
