Synopsis

Andross, an ape exiled from the Lylat Planetary System by General Pepper seeks revenge by attacking the planet Corneria and its innocence, kidnapping Pepper in the process. Meanwhile, it's another usual day for Team Star Fox, a gang of space mercenaries: Lazing around, getting angry at video games, and being lectured by their mentors. But all of that changes once they receive a distress call from a familiar face.

Meet Fox McCloud, son of the deceased James McCloud, as he and his top-notch crew—Slippy Toad, Falco Lombardi and Peppy Hare—fight back against Andross's robotic army in style, and attempt to save Corneria from the skies.

Background

This is an interpretation of Star Fox Zero's introduction, which is a reimagining of Star Fox 64 for the Wii U.

While I was watching Star Fox Zero: The Battle Begins, I had many memories of the game Star Fox 64. Some expressions of the characters are similar to that game, or had been directly taken from there (and we can't forget the classic "do a barrel roll"). It caused me a nostalgic feel. Some songs were also compositions extracted from there. Although the type of humor is somewhat bland and the plot is simple, the action scenes are well worked and are very enjoyable.

In summary, it's not just a very-long teaser trailer for the game Star Fox Zero, but it can be a great piece read more

Let me start off by saying that I love Starfox.
However this game promo wasn't done as well as it should have been.

Plot 6/10
The story, (being a game promo for Starfox Zero) is your typical run-of-the-mill Starfox level/boss battle. General Pepper and Corneria are under attack by Andross. It was great to see Granga again, (the first boss on the easy path in Starfox 64) not pleased to say he didn't explode.
I can't really give a game promo a high plot score, nor can I really give it a low score.

Art 4/10
The first thing I did after viewing the episode was look to what studio read more

Story
Sigh... i have been taught to take the good with bad. Which i have used in life. Which lead me to out with the old and in with the new. Which most Americans live their life on. Whether it is ordering the latest i phone or modernized home feature appliance. To some extent it is great but the rest is pathetic. Maybe, this is why i am having a hard time giving this a higher or lower rating.

Plot wise stayed true to the game. That dedication is not as often as one would think. Ending was a nice tease given the fact read more
