* Star Fox is Coming...

Printer-friendly page Print this story   Email this to a friend
Filefront's got a preview of the upcoming Star Fox Assault, Nintendo's attempt to remove the taint of Star Fox Adventures from the franchise.

In the previous Star Fox games the vehicle based levels were mainly set on a rail, giving players only minimal control to which direction you were headed. In Star Fox Assault that has changed, putting players in an enclosed area and making it possible to travel in any direction. This however also means enemies can attack you from any direction, which makes for some very hectic gameplay.

Even though there aren?t two analog sticks to mimic the action of a game like Mechassault, there have been changes to the control scheme to help players out. In a lot of ways it is similar to Metroid Prime again where you can turn in any direction by using the analog stick, and then strafe by holding the X button. It does make for some quirky running and shooting moves, but is still fairly solid nonetheless.
Tempting, tempting...
