    Just paying for the 3D, eh?

    I still play the N64 version now and again, so when I get a 3DS, I will get this game, regardless of price. To be able to play one of my favorite games anywhere, anytime is worth it.

    $40???? They do realize people can buy older games like Sonic or Streets of Rage on the iPhone/android for a couple of bucks right? This should have been no more then $19.99.

    $70 in Australia. Yipee!

    Henry - is there a level select feature? The fact you always had to complete it in one run-through on the N64 was always a bit of a bummer, so can you actually save the game now?
  • Z-man427 - September 9, 2011 1:48 p.m.

    Yes there is and there's an autosave after each mission.

    Cheers man, the lack of it was the worst thing about the 64 version. Used to drive me mad if I was going through it and had to leave.
  • Darkhawk - September 9, 2011 12:58 p.m.

    $5 on eBay (or $15 total if you need to acquire an N64 first) is a better investment.

    I prefer the N64 version. Theses controls are a little wonky. I recommend NOT playing it on 3D. It looks great, but you will end up moving around , even without the gyroscopic controls, which makes it really hard to see what’s going on. The voice acting in the original was better. Fox now sounds congested, Peppy sounds too young, Falco lost too much of his attitude, and Slippy now sounds like a prepubescent boy rather than an annoying cheerleader. And I still hate the Landmaster. It’s still fun. Almost as fun as the original, but the translation to handheld wasn’t good enough. 7/10, whereas the original was 9/10.

    The original is a classic, but charging 40 bucks for it is outrageous. Nintendo needs be less out of touch and accept that they need to release games cheaper if they want the 3DS to survive. With the way 3DS games are selling, StarFox will probably be 20 bucks before Christmas.

    If i ever get a 3ds then i will defintley get this when the price goes down.
  • Thequestion 121 - September 9, 2011 12:27 p.m.

    I will still get this game :)
  • SteampunkJim - September 9, 2011 12:23 p.m.

    I'm so torn on this. On the one hand, I LOVE starfox, and I want to do my part to send a message to Nintendo that Starfox is improtant, and that we want more of it. On the other hand, it's $40! And with the end of year game releases really starting to ramp up, that $40 is going to be more and more scarce.
  • Baron164 - September 9, 2011 12:22 p.m.

    I can't see myself paying $40 for a game I paid $50 for more than 10 years ago. If it was $20 then ok. But a nice coat of paint on a 14 year old game still make it a 14 year old game.
  • ObliqueZombie - September 9, 2011 12:19 p.m.

    Man, if I owned a 3DS, I would SO wait for this to go on sale.
  • db1331 - September 9, 2011 12:11 p.m.

    For a moment there I was worried you might not make a barrel roll joke. This game is absolutely overpriced. $20 would be more reasonable.
  • MidianGTX - September 9, 2011 12:08 p.m.

    Hey, I owned a good 40+ N64 games and enjoyed practically all of them. It's only a small library to fussy sons of b*****s.
  • 510BrotherPanda - September 9, 2011 1:17 p.m.

    Well...that's Henry "Regular Host" Gilbert for you. The N64's game library WAS bigger than the Virtual Boy, at least. The biggest problem it had with capturing third-party was that it still used cartridges instead of CDs, which were becoming way cheaper to produce and copy data to. @HENRY: Did they change Katt Monroe back to the purple/pink cat because it's just a revamped 'Star Fox 64', or is the black/white Katt from 'Star Fox Command' "non-canon"? I'm only asking this because (as you've said on a previous episode of TalkRadar) Q Games was the group that developed 'Command'.

    Its easy to understand as it didnt add much like OOT did, still buying it though because its a great classic. One question Gilbert, is this version the more better perfered version like Ocarina of time 3D?
  • snipes101 - September 9, 2011 12:02 p.m.

    Why I am still willing to spend forty bucks on this I will never know. I loved this game so much when I was a kid. God nostalgia sucks.
