Yeah, as kiddfox said, damn too short to be an all out battle. You need mates round regularly to enjoy all that this corker of a game throws at you, and mates don't grow on trees you know. So get popular you geek :)

StarFox Assault is amazing!! My favourite characters are Fox, Falco and Krystal. My most favourite is Krystal. She looks really pretty in StarFox Adventures and Fox really likes her.

It... was... over already? The action rocked but the darn thing was over too fast (10 missions -.-). The onland movement needed a little improvement but the shooting was fun. The story, not long enough but it had some kicks (of action). Tell Fox I'm still his no. 1 fan. ^_^

Not only was this game stunning in terms of mech design (Arwings, Great Fox, the aparoids etc), and gameplay, but it was absolutely amazing when you hear the old familiar tunes of StarFox64...PLAYED BY AN ORCHESTRA. This game sounds like an epic sci fi movie, and it is fantastic!

Certainly is the best Star Fox game I've ever played... I kinda liked Krystal better with the loincloth though. ;-)

DUDE! The way Fox looked in the Starfox Assault game, he looked extremely scary!! I liked the one from Super Smash Bros. Melee he looks alot better.

Assault is a pretty awesome game! It was too short, though, and the features were also too limited. Anyway, excellent graphics, I can see every clipped wire on my broken wing, and the new multiplayer mode is just KEWL! I recommend renting this game if you just want to complete the main story, but if you want to unlock special features and other things, then go buy it. YOU KNOW YOU WANNA!! ^_^

AWESOME!!! Starfox games are my most favourite but I wished there were some other unlockables like maybe the magical staff included. But overall this game is one of the best in my opinion.

It's a good game and is great for multipayer but is also too short but you can play for hours tring to get a hi-score.

Starfox is one of my favorite game series and I was extremely excited to hear starfox Assault coming out. I played it for hours! Like all Starfox games, it was AWESOME!
-- From CJ
Starfox Assault was a great game but so short, I've completed on bronze and silver levels, I've even recorded the cut scenes on DVD.

I'm a big Star Fox fan and in a way it's the best Star Fox game i've played but at the same time i was disappointed at how easy and short it was, I felt really let down.

I never played Star Fox Adventures and don't plan to but when I saw the advertisment for this game I knew I had to have it, I thought it could have been a bit longer and harder though.
