Review: Star Fox 64 3D photo
Review: Star Fox 64 3D
by Jonathan Holmes

The N64 is my least favorite console of all time, but I still feel the need to own one, mostly for Star Fox 64. It's easily one of my favorite games on the console, way ahead of Super Mario 64 and Ocarina of Time. That's partly because those two titles were 3D adaptations (and in some ways, deformations) of already near-perfect 2D experiences I'd grown to love on the SNES.

As a huge fan of Mario and Link's SNES titles, seeing characters that I'd grown to love as colorful, detailed 2D sprites transformed into chunky, low-texture polygon models felt like a huge downgrade. Star Fox on the SNES was already as chunky and low poly as it gets, so by comparison, Star Fox 64 looked amazing. The game fully embraced the technical limitations of the N64 by crafting a world where it made sense for everything to be made from basic geometric shapes.

There was no attempt at realism, or recreation of sprite-based characters; just N64 graphics doing what they do best. Like with the Katamari Damacy games, and now Minecraft, Star Fox 64 presented a world that was built from the ground up to be made from simple shapes. That's just the start of why I love the game.

Now Star Fox 64 is back on the 3DS, and once again, the game adapts to the strengths and limitations of its destination console, and make them work in its favor.

The PixelJunk titles are among my favorite time-wasters on the PlayStation 3. Eden is a game that I can turn on at just about any time for some much needed relaxation and Monsters flies in the face of my general opinion of tower defense games. So, yeah, I'm a fan.

That's why I was so excited to get a look at the latest title in the series from Q-Games, the as yet unnamed PixelJunk 1-4. It may very well be their most addictive and fun game to date and I'm thrilled to be bringing you Destructoid's first look at the title. It's just a click away.
