    gosh zach, you must be 10 if you haven't played that. It's from nintendo 64. Good is relative to the player. Take a chance on it.

    The action in Star Fox 64 is amazing -- a trait you can expect from any Star Fox game. The only complaint I have is the length of the game. It's very short. Despite that, the game is amazing.

    For the way the VC is going right now, yes, it's worth the download, there are N64 games better than starfox, but I don't see them coming out on VC anytime soon (darn Nintendo, dosen't even keep up with N64 games)

    starfox 64 is great, I haven't bought it yet only because I'm saving my points for games I want more. If you can spare the 1000 points grab it, sweet game.

    StarFox 64 is a great game. I have downloaded it and find it to be very enjoyable. But thats just me though, so you may feel differently.

    I saw buy it if you have not already its a great game and i think it aged very well... It is much better than the two shitty games we got for the GC. Also it is pretty short but if you want to beat it and get the real ending its pretty tough close to the end of the game so its worth $10 actually its pretty much a steal for that price.

    I'm 26 and I haven't played it. If I were going to get a space shooter on the VC, I'd want something that wasn't on rails. Personal preference.

    Examples of Project64 graphics... which are actually better than the VC

    That shot is not better than the VC. It's considerably worse. Perhaps the higher resolution of a pc exposes the weakness of the games visuals too much.

    Sorry, where is that screenshot taken from then? I just assumed that was taken from a PC monitor.

    Hard to say if you have played it on the N64 then you may be nored of it but for a first time player go for it, its a great game.

    It was a good game while it lasted.

    Just keep in mind that you will probably beat it in one day. It does have considerable replay value, however.
