Hey, Smutty remembers playing Star Fox in "Super FX" on Super Nintendo! It was one of the first that looked 3D. Now that today there are thousands of 3D games in existence, Smutty appreciates 2D games more.

Anyway, 4chan's /vr/ board was talking about Star Fox today...

    When it came out it was amazing. It was a 3-d game that played well, had great level design, and was fun - all on a 16-bit system. Compared to the awful 3-d shit on 3DO and Jaguar at the time, this was great. It isn't all that special now, but 24 years ago it was incredible.
    Have you actually sit down to play Star Fox for more than the tutorial level?

Even with its crazy low fps and polycount, the gameplay is smooth. The game's controls were made with limitations in mind, and flying around, dodging enemy attacks with L or R and accelerating feels natural. It's not comparable to great but older Sega games with scaling effects. Those are great, Space Harrier is timeless and if I had to choose between playing SH and SF today, I'd choose SH. But SF still stands on its own right by being a more than decently playable game even with all the limitations. Sega did something similar with Virtua Racing on Mega Drive. Of course it can't compete with the arcade VR or the 32X one, but it's pretty damn impressive for the standard MD, and most of all, the gameplay works, it feels like the arcade, a lot choppier, but it's still there, you're playing VR. It's not some different game like the VF2 MD version.

SF64 is really when SF peaked, it's 10x better than the SNES original. But SNES SF still deserves its fame. It's a game I wouldn't mind playing again honestly, which is more of what I can say of majority of games. I'd still prefer SF64 obviously, but meh if it's between something like SF or other similar games of the time like Total Eclipse or those horrid Jaguar 3D shooter games, I'd choose Star Fox.
    Star Fox was a class game with great atmosphere and a great narrative - as well as fantastic gameplay. The framerate is a bit iffy but play the overclocked version if you want to remove that. The 3D graphics have a charm that just can't be replicated today, I wish there was a PC fan version of Star Fox with the same type of graphics because personally I love the abstractism of the polygons. Maybe I'm biased because yes, I played it as a kid and loved it - and it is pretty much my favourite game of all time.

SEGA games like Galaxy Force II are awesome too (the rotation and scaling!) but something about Star Fox is special - the N64 game is technically superior but the SNES one has more charm.
    Nintendo had the right idea with Starfox, instead of making an overly long arcade game no one is gonna beat out of boredom they made 3 distinct routes with varying difficulty levels and let players choose between them, and even included secret levels to reward exploration.
