Fans of the old 2D horizontal/vertical shooters, who have felt displaced by the recent rash of 3D games, may find solace in Star Fox 64. Despite being a 3D construct with occasional open flight modes, for the majority of the game Star Fox 64 is locked into a set flight path and retains an old-school flavor.
Multiplayer modes are capable and can be a blast for those into dogfighting with planes.
Players looking for a space simulator with depth and complexity should probably turn to the Colony Wars or Wing Commander series. Star Fox 64 is still a simple arcade shooter at heart and I'm sure fans wouldn't have had it any other way.
