            Nah, at the time seeing "[franchise] 64" was hype as frick. It told you that you were getting a game you liked but upgraded into sweet 64-bit 3D graphics. It was a similar feeling to seeing "Super [NES game name]" in SNES game titles.
            >Metroid, but SUPER
            >Star Fox, but 64-bit
            Plus, the logo looked sick as hell.
            The European games going from Star Wing to Lylat Wars also offers basically zero brand recognition so it's a marketing failure as well.

              Nah.
              The Star Fox treatment is pretty nice, but that ugly 64 is a spiky, tacked-on blight.
              The red Star Fox logo attached to the Lylat Wars title is much cooler.

              >brand recognition
              It's a European Nintendo release, m8.
              The original SNES game dropped off the charts in months, not even getting a Xmas boost.
              Lylat Wars didn't need the brand recognition as it sold to the N64 audience by virtue of being the lone Q4 Nintendo game, and there being frick-all else besides Goldeneye and Diddy Kong Racing coming out just before Xmas.

    I highly disagree. I always assumed it was made obsolete by Star Fox 64, but there are actually things it does a lot better in my opinion. The worst problem it suffers from is the frame rate honestly, and this can be easily remedied nowadays by overclocking the Super FX chip in emulation. I'm not being nostalgia blind either, I'm 24 and I didn't play the original Star Fox until a couple years ago.

      No, the game with naive overclocks is fairly close to unplayable. The game doesn't have a proper dynamic framerate, instead like so many MANY 3D games of the era they just manually adjusted the game logic at certain points to account for the speed it actually runs. When you take out the hardware limitation causing those slowdowns you instead get random speed UPS because the game logic wasn't designed for it.
      A *true* framerate patch needs to adjust game logic but I'm not aware of such a thing existing. Most rom hacks are just spergs making a couple of hex edits and farming upboats on their STARFOX 60FPS! videos.

      Well that guy was probably emulating unless he was abusing flashcart save states which sounds tedious. 3 of the positive reviews specifically mention playing it on an actual snes(and one was one of the authors, not biased I'm sure) so that could possibly make it run weird for him. Like other anons have said changing the speed does change how the game behaves. I think he was filtered though, thay he's so used to playing the original he can't adapt to the differences in gameplay.

    Each to their own, but I honestly prefer the original to 64. It looks basic now, but it still plays really crisply, and the soundtrack is underrated, it does an amazing job of setting the right tone for each level.

    Also, for what little they had to work with, the drama in each level is really well directed. Level 3 in the first route is just some shoe boxes and a few background jpgs, but it’s so well paced, you really sense the invasion armada that had been waiting behind the asteroid belt utterly panicking as you emerge from nowhere and start scything through them.

    Likewise Venom level 2, a civilian highway that’s completely unprepared for you. Instead of military vehicles, it’s just lorries, police skimmers and airbikes, that veer around, crash into highway supports, and use weedy traps that are clearly more for stopping speeding civilians than combat aircraft. When the police have to resort to just driving into you to stop you, you almost feel sorry for them - it’s a really neat counterpoint the Corneria invasion.

      It really doesn't. It's difficult to parse the spatial positioning of anything, especially in terms of depth, especially when the screen gets crowded. The controls feel slow, it's hard to dodge things on reflex.

    When I wanted to try this franchise I went in release order. Couldn't beat it on the hard route, always got filtered by the time I reached Sector Z with those wireframe rectangles and even before that I'd sometimes only get by because of a checkpoint before an extra life pickup.
    I can't say I liked the game. As much as I'd like to, between the framerate, shit coming up from nowhere, very poor depth perception, I just didn't have fun with it. At first I thought I might just not like rail shooters but 64 really clicked with me. Ended up 100% just because I couldn't put it down.

        I disagree. For one you get to appreciate the evolution of the games. In most cases games that go on to be franchises start off decently strong if unpolished or not yet taking advantage of some idea it has. I find series tend to only get close to unplayable later on as devs think they can get away on their laurels rather than putting in the effort.
        Another thing is that I think hardware restrictions were a positive to force devs to think creatively. In some cases, I'd argue like StarFox, they bit off more than they could chew.
        An interesting question to ponder. Did StarFox NEED to be a primitive form of 3D but with framerate issues rather than using sprites and good framerates? Would the series have never made it past 1 had it not been for the 3D as a hook? Personally, I don't think so. While a lot of decisions were made because of what the chip could do I think we still would've still gotten StarFox 64 unchanged+later games.

        That's precisely why you should go in order of release. If you let yourself get used to all the QoL improvements of later titles it will color your perception of the earlier ones. Instead of appreciating the QoL additions as you go forward through the series, you'll just become more frustrated by the lack of them as you go back to older titles.

            No, it's to give the games a fair shot on their own terms and set yourself up to appreciate positive additions to later games rather than setting yourself up to bee annoyed with how "lesser" the older games feel compared to the newer ones you played first. There's nothing stopping you from skipping to another game if you don't like one, either, it's not like I'm saying no one should ever play the next game before fully beating the previous one if they're not having fun with it.
