Star Fox: Assault – Consumer Guide

Tera Kirk's picture

According to the ESRB, this game contains: Fantasy Violence

Parents: Star Fox: Assault is about as violent as a 1980s Saturday morning cartoon. There are spaceships and lasers and explosions. but nothing gory or graphics. this game has no bad language whatsoever. There's some romantic content, but it's not sexual. A friend asks Fox and Krystal if they'll return to his planet on their honeymoon, and Krystal gets hit on by a guy she doesn't like. Still, there's no sexual innuendo. ("How'd you like to be on the wing of my plane, Krystal?" is as tasteless as Star Fox: Assault gets).

Fans of the Star Fox series, rejoice: Assault is a return to old-school Arwing flyin', alien blastin' goodness.

But gamers looking to spend 30 to 70 hours on a game will be disappointed. Star Fox: Assault's story mode is awfully short. Still, there are plenty of opportunities for bragging rights: players can snag trophies, flags, best times...even an extra "bonus" game.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers should have very few problems playing this game. There are no significant auditory cues, and all speech is subtitled.
