Enjoy aerial combat and online dogfights in Star Fox Command on the Nintendo DS, available from Play for only £6.99, with their customary offer of free delivery!
Zipped into a price-comparison, Play’s offer for Star Fox Command evaded the competition to emerge as the cheapest available, a five-pound reduction from Play’s original deal! A welcome return to Star Fox’s roots, following the disappointing hack-and-slash affairs, Command earned 76/100 on MetaCritic, with Yahoo claiming “this is better action than we deserve in a portable”.
Star Fox Command has you commanding both your Star Fox vessel on the top screen, and Battleships-esque radar on the bottom, with the stylus organizing between four other ships and ordering their method of approach and attack. Unlike the original Star Fox games, which had minimal control of the vessel itself, Command has you controlling the vessel’s entire range of motion. In Star Fox Command, between the aerial dogfights and tactical strategizing, you must destroy enemy strongholds, remove their aerial presence and collect vital resources. Upon completing levels, you’re given the choice of various routes, each offering different character dialogue and banter to listen to.
The series’ online virginity is lost with Star Fox Command’s online and local multiplayer, with up to six players supported. However, the objective is to collect Stars left over from destroyed enemies, instead of actually destroying them. Although this still means combat is vital, cunning players can opt to scavenge for Stars and avoid combat altogether!
