The Starfox series of games for the Nintendo platform is one of the best games that Nintendo has released. The Starfox series depicts Starfox as the commander and best pilot in the galaxy and he, along with his friends, are tasked to keep the peace of the universe.
Today, we are going to talk about the Starfox Zero Game for the Nintendo Wii U. This game has just recently been released and I must say that it is really a huge improvement over its predecessors.
Some gamers, at least at the time it was released, were unsure if the game was just a sequel to the original Starfox64 or a sequel. But, Nintendo later announced that the game is neither a remake or a sequel to the original game.
The Starfox Zero Game for the Nintendo Wii U just has all sides improved. It’s got improved gameplay, improved graphics, and an overall improved fun gaming experience.
Let’s talk about the graphics of the game for one bit. The graphics have improved quite a lot from the previous games. It’s now more streamlined and the Geometry and other graphical elements are smooth and it really accentuates the Nintendo Wii U’s modern hardware. There are some fps drops here and there, but they are minimal and should not diminish your overall gaming experience.
As for the gameplay, the Starfox Zero Game for the Nintendo Wii U’s campaign can be completed in just under 5 hours. But, if you truly want to explore everything, you may want to replay the game as there are some instances where a choice can change the outcome of the story (in short, this game has multiple endings).
One thing you would want to look out for are the boss battles. The Boss battles in this game are action-packed and that you will really be taken to the edge of your seats (yeah, it’s that intense).
From intense battles from your rival, Starwolf, to some hard boss battles courtesy of Monarch Dodora, you’re in for some amazing boss fights.
The Starfox Zero Game for the Nintendo Wii U also has different mechanics depending on the stage you are in. For example, there are certain stages where you need to fly your spacecraft in order to defeat the alien baddies.
There are also some missions that would require you to use land transportation instead and there are some missions that require you to go stealth and run towards a place without any vehicles at all (kind of like the Metal Gear Solid series).
The Starfox Zero Game for the Nintendo Wii U’s controls is a little bit wonky. Because of the nature of the Wii U’s controller, there are two screens you need to utilize. The first screen is the TV screen where you will see a third-person perspective of the battlefield and the second screen is within the gamepad where you will use it to aim at enemies.
It can be cumbersome, especially if it is your first time playing the game. But, you will get used to it.
The Starfox Zero Game for the Nintendo Wii U, I must say, is a great addition to the Starfox franchise.
