Star Fox Guard Review

Star Fox Guard won’t be for everyone. Serving as a companion piece to the orchestrated spectacle seen in Star Fox Zero, players neatly park their Arwing in the hangar and are instead handed the wide-ranging AegisCam system.

Star Fox Zero Review

“It’s been too long,” Peppy Hare sighs. Star Fox Zero nonchalantly summons the same nostalgic pangs as when we first saw Han Solo and Chewie dash aboard the Millennium Falcon in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But, by comparison, this time that emotion is prompted by an unquestionably loyal rabbit with a fondness for performing barrel rolls. It has been five years since the Star Fo...
