Throwback Thursday: Star Fox Adventures

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Thursday!

Kris and I have been exploring Star Fox and Star Fox 2 on the SNES Classic. Star Fox 2 was never released so, of course, we’ve never played it. We’ve never played Star Fox though either, so it was the first game we decided to try out. And it brought back some memories. Different memories, but memories nonetheless.

Star Fox Adventures for the Nintendo Gamecube | Nintendo Gamecube | Nintendo | Star Fox |

Star Fox Adventures was on the Nintendo Gamecube released on September 23, 2002. It’s an action-adventure game developed by Rare and published by Nintendo. It’s totally different from the typical Star Fox game where you’re in a ship shooting at things.

The story takes place eight years after the events of Star Fox 64. Krystal is searching for answers due to the destruction of her home planet. She gets herself into trouble and Fox investigates with the help of a dinosaur friend, Prince Tricky.

Kris and I never beat this game, but we did try to create our own version of it.

When we were kids, young and stupid, we took our parents’ video camera and tried to recreate the game as a movie. Kris was Fox and I was Tricky. We were so loud and obnoxious that our sister came out of her room to ask what we were doing.

Somehow, she ended up being our cameraman.

Needless to say, we didn’t get very far. I remember finding the tapes a few years ago while my mom was cleaning out her closet. The camera was in there as were the tapes and we watching some old vacation videos when our lovely movie came on one of the tapes.

I couldn’t say where they are now… I just hope I find them again someday. If I do, I hope they still work so I can watch.

Now I really want to give the game another go.

Flashback Friday: Star Fox Adventures

Double Jump Kris Mii Yay for the weekend!

I hope everyone’s week went well and that you have some fun things lined up for the weekend. Summer is quickly drawing to a close — you all ready for autumn?


Star Fox Adventures was a game released for the Nintendo GameCube in September of 2002 for North America. It was developed by Rare — it was actually the last Nintendo game developed by Rare, and that fact hurt the game’s praise from critics and fans alike.

Despite that, the game was generally well received, earning an average of 3.5 to 4 stars in most reviews. Most positive reviews praised the game for its beautiful graphics and game play. The game play was a double-edged knife when it game to reviews for the game: one of the chief complaints was that it had strayed a bit from the usual Star Fox type game play style, which was a 3D scrolling shooter game.

Adventures is a direct sequel to Star Fox 64, and features the familiar heroes of the Lylat System like Fox McCloud with new characters, like Krystal the Fox and the dinosaur Prince Tricky. The game plays much like an action-adventure genre rather than the usual shooters in the franchise, with Adventures featuring several lands to explore and puzzles to solve.

Star Fox Adventures was the first Star Fox game that I had ever played, and I was introduced to Fox McCloud through Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 64. I have yet to try one of the more traditional Star Fox games, but if they have the same lovable characters and similar heroic journey, then I’m looking forward to them!

Have you played Star Fox Adventures? What about the other Star Fox games? Did you enjoy them?
