Star Fox Zero

I should start by saying that I’ve never really been that big a fan of Star Fox games, and have only played (and not to completion) the Super Nintendo and Nintendo 64 releases. But despite the mixed reviews, I was still curious to try this out. I’m afraid I didn’t have a lot of fun playing it. Even though I never really liked them, I was starting to get a bit used to the controls (using the Wii U controller screen and TV screen together), but then already at the 3rd mission (I think) I started getting annoyed in a dog fight mission that just felt frustrating. I’m already not the biggest fan of 3D space shooters (I love 2D shooters to death though), but add what to me felt like awkward controls – in part because I wasn’t drawn into the game long enough to really get good at it – and that was enough for me. Oh well.
