Famitsu, the Japanese gaming mag made infamous for its harsh review scores, has given Star Fox DS a 32/40 (8’s across the board). The solid score could be indicative of a resurgence of this franchise, which has struggled ever since the popular Super FX chip original for the SNES.
That said, I’m still on the fence about the control scheme for this game. My wrist and hand are still cramped from when I tried the Metroid Prime: Hunters demo that came with my DS Phat, so any game as in-depth as Star Fox that requires the stylus for its main controls has me feeling wary.
However, this review goes a long way towards making me want to play through the pain. Anyone else?
