Star Fox 64 Returns On The 3DS

I was really excited to get this game. However, at the price I paid for it I should have waited. Do not get me wrong this game is really fun to play. It has some of the best graphics for a 3DS game that I have seen. The controls are easy and anyone can pick them up. Where this game fails is the really short story line. The levels only take a couple of minutes to beat and there are, I believe, 8 levels in story mode. However, there are more than 8 levels because there are different levels you can go to in order to beat the story mode. You just have to pick which 6 levels you want to play to get to the final level. The only violence in this game is that you have to shoot at stuff with your arwing; however, the final boss might creep out younger kids because of wait you have to do to stop him. I recommend whoever wants to buy this game to wait until they can find a good deal. It was not worth what I paid for it. I wished I had waited to buy it when it came down on price. Nevertheless this is a great game to add to your 3DS collection.

I disagree with common senses 3 star rating. This is one of the best games of all time, even though it's not a very long game. There is so much replay value and charm, there is no way people should pass up this game.
