4.0 out of 5 stars No Bad, 15 Sept. 2011
This review is from: Star Fox 64 3D (Nintendo 3DS) (Video Game)
Like Pilotwings before it, this really makes the most of the 3ds visuals. It has a pick up and play quality about it that would have been welcome at launch (given the poor selection of titles) although the absence of an online game suggests both a rush (to save sales figures) and a missed opportunity?

That said the game itself is fabulous and a reminder of how good some of the titles on the N64 were. Nintendo have added enough bells and whistles to encourage repeat plays, and although you can play to a finish in about 2 hours, different routes through the main game (with increasing difficulty levels) keep it interesting.

If nintendo want to shift some serious units of the 3ds by porting N64 games it needs to consider Perfect Dark, Goldeneye, DK64 and Majoras Mask. That said, there may be complications with the first 3 on account of them being developed by rare, but if these can be overcome nintendo could really be on to something here.

Perfect Dark and Goldeneye will not likely end up on any Nintendo console as the developers, Rare, are now owned by Microsoft.

If I'm correct, DK64 was also made by Rare, so that's probably murky waters also.

rare (so really now Microsoft) and Nintendo, awkwardly, share rights to goldeneye, yes. DK64 on the other hand, while made by rare is owned entirely by ninetendo as with any other donkey kong or any other ninetendo character, game that rare made for them. :)
