It's a trick question for me... For the "Genesis Trilogies", I'd choose Starfox 2, no questions asked. As for the "Krystal Chronicles", it is an even tougher question: I'd probably say Command, despite its negative legacy and criticism surrounding it. I guess it is nice to actually see Krystal standing up for herself for once, for better or for worse, and Command answered this call better that previous or further installments (ironically, she isn't even in any further installments to this day).

I love Starfox Adventures, too. It is a shame that it has such a bad reputation... It was a very smart use of what would be another cancelled game in Nintendo's history, yet people still criticise the decision.

Dinosaur Planet was something like 3 weeks from being released on the N64 if I'm not mistaken. The console died a bit too early for the game to be released...
Now that I know more about what happened behind the scenes, I'm not fond of Shigeru's decision to morph the game into a Starfox game.

 

But still, I'll pick Adventures because it was my first Starfox, one of my first Gamecube games and probably one of the games I played the most during my life. Ah, nostalgia...

Assault, hands down. To me, Assault's music is the best in the series to this day, and there's just so much to do in VS with a friend or two. Also, Krystal is BAE. I don't care what anybody says, I have too much fun playing as Krystal in VS to say otherwise. ^-^

I wanna say classic Star Fox for the SNES and Star Fox Assault for being the most out-there in terms of features.

My favorite is a toss up between the SNES and 64.  They're a blast to play, and were fairly revolutionary for their respective times.  Assault is second.

Star Fox: Assault. Music, gameplay, story. It does well with all, plus Andross isn't the main villain. As much as I like the big guy, he's in almost every game.

StarFox Adventures.

I'm not interested in highscores, so the classic "Railshooter"-games are nothing which can entertain me for hours. I'll pick story-driven adventure games everytime over Railshooter. Not that the other SF-games are bad, they are just not my cup of tea.

In order!

Most Favorite: 64

The gold standard for which the rest of the series should be held to, 64 just gets almost everything right and stands to the test of time very well. I can replay this one endlessly for the rest of my life.

2nd: Star Fox 2

SF2 trailblazed a lot of new ideas that would show up later in the series in some form or another and is a damn fine good game on its own as well. However it does have a lack of polish due to its experimental nature and pushing hardware that keeps it from being the number 1 for me.

3rd: Star Fox

A classic, the original, a dated but still fun and challenging game with great music and design, held back by being the progenitor game and being a tad bit unfair at points.

4th: Zero/Guard

The controversial one. A mix of great ideas and awful ones, a fanservice filled romp with throwbacks to the SNES in a modern paint job. Some levels are fantastic and the best the series has had, others are abysmal and really needed redoing. Motion aiming is fun as hell, dual screens is cumbersome at best, and the game played it too safe and failed to innovate. I enjoyed it, but it's not great.

Guard is a fun time killer game and is well made, but its rather lacking in any substance beyond the initial premise and feels more like a minigame for Zero that was packed in on its own disc for some reason. 

5th: Adventures

A pretty paint job masquerading a hell of a troubled development and rushed delivery. Feels wonderful to play, look at and listen to, has absolutely nothing of value to offer otherwise. Linear, disappointing , disjointed, could have been one of the best but fate had other plans. The absurd level of polish keeps it from being rock bottom.

6th: Assault

A garbled mess of a game that seemed to go out of its way to try and mess everything up. Also likely troubled in development, single player is lacking and consists mostly of recycled multiplayer assets. Characters are badly written and story is rushed with a confused sense of tone. Controls fairly clumsily but had a fantastic multiplayer. Every time I replay this I seem to find something new to dislike.

Least Favorite: Command

The dumpster fire of all dumpster fires. Controls terribly, deliberately contradicts player choice in the narrative, clumsy strategy elements that are sloppily used, and a story that occasionally has some great high moments and character scenes that's undermined by their confusing and unsatisfying endings and overall unexpectedly downer tone. Wouldn't mind nearly so much if the controls weren't ass, but gameplay is worse than the infamous story, which says a lot. ECH.

      / (_)\_( )_\ FOX BECOMES ADDICTED TO CHEESE: EPIC NEW VERSION EDITION
      ) /\/ _ (o)( The Shining Achievement of All FoxKind
      \ \_) (o) /
      \/_/
      A desolate planet of pollution and waste. Venom's Voleech City was ugly as rotting paste. As I say all of this, Fox had to make haste. He was scurrying behind buildings and blasting at bots, bursting their circuits as they screamed out 'bleeps' and 'blots'. Made of tech, they were, they had no blood clots. Fox's boots continued to make more trit-trots, as he fox-trotted his way into the Death Weapon Factory. Robot armies followed him inside, could it be that Fox had nowhere to hide?
      "I need to destroy these weapons so that Andross won't use them against Corneria" Fox thought to himself. He isolated each in a gravitational field, then set a timer on each one, eventually they'd come out well done. Sooner or later, they bursted into flames, sending scrap metal everywhere, killing the robot armies who had no names. Then Fox got an incoming message from Falco, not Slippy. Man oh man, is that bird ever lippy.
      "Andross is here, he's bringing death and fear. Get your ass to Corneria, hurry right now! We can't make cheese, they've slaughtered every last cow! We've even got less freedom here than on Venom, I'm just thanking God that my jacket is Denim" said Falco. Fox jumped in his ship as soon as he could, then set off for Corneria, to restore peace and brotherhood. When he arrived on his homeworld he was not very pleased. The cities were in shambles, even Admiral Z's house of cheese. Cheese had been banned under Emperor Andross's new law. No one could have cheese throughout the land, not cubed nor sliced, not even one strand. Children were crying and wailing in pain, where was Fox when they needed him? No cheese is quite lame! The giant block of cheese atop Admiral Z's had melted down, far down to the ground, trapping Cornerians...wait isn't the earth round?
      "Cheese can't possibly be that frickin' sticky. Something's rotten in Wisconsin, and this ain't no job for Slippy" thought Fox. Fox got an incoming message from Wolf, who was flying overhead. He didn't like Fox, he wanted Fox to be dead.
      "Hey Fox it's the Wolfster, your people are worthless eaters. We added adhesive properties to the cheese, so now they're all stuck. You'll never defeat Andross cuz face it Fox, you suck. Cheese is for losers so kiss your planet goodbye. All you animals must bow before Andross and die" said Wolf. Sick of all the distress and war, Fox couldn't take it, no not anymore. Fox dropped his cell phone, and began losing his mind. He couldn't take what was happening, even so, saving planets was his 9 to 5 grind. But when all seemed lost, Peppy flew by, dispatching himself with a parachute to the ground, sniffing out trouble better than a foxhound. He got out a long stick of measuring tape, and began charting, graphing, and plotting the melted cheese landscape. Finally he knew just what the Star Fox team should do.
      "Ah, dang, I'm gettin' carless. Fox, Gimme a spare Lylation Nova Bomb" ordered Peppy. Fox pulled a Nova Bomb out of his pocket and placed it in Peppy's hands.
      "Ah, that be the one. Now watch and learn Fox mah boy" said Peppy. Peppy began strapping on giant mecha-gloves to prevent his hands from getting stuck, then started lifting up the cheese straight off the earth. That took strength, power, and mirth? He rolled up the cheese against the nova bomb, then hastened to a cannon, firing it at Andross's ships one by one. If they wouldn't let Cornerians have cheese then let them have what they took. In the form of planetary defense prepared by a master cook.
      "DO A CHEESE ROLL!" ordered Peppy.
      "Man, where'd you learn to do that?" asked Fox in amazement.
      "I learned it at the Cooper's Hill Cheese Rolling and Wake. It's an event near Gloucester, England, where they roll cheese down hills. Now if you don't mind, it's time to defeat the emperor's evil shills!" said Peppy, rolling up the nova bomb in all of the melted sticky cheese from the demolition of Admiral Z's restaurant. Fox began rolling up a nova bomb in cheese, and freed all the citizens who had been stuck. Then Fox and Peppy loaded up the cannons, taking out each one of Andross's minions. Eventually appeared Andross himself, pissed off as hell, like a wargod-elf. Fox jumped into his Arwing, and prepared to take him down. He wasn't gonna lose his beloved planet to that Planet of the Apes reject CLOWN!
      "You will die, just like your father" declared Andross.
      "Not over my dead body!" said Fox.
      "You do realize the irony and foolishness of your response, do you not, Fox?" thundered Andross.
      "I realize that you're going down!" said Fox.
      "If I'm going down, then I'm taking you with me" said Andross.
      "NEVER!" yelled Fox.
      "It is foolish to come against me. You know that I control the galaxy!" said Andross.
      "The universe is like waaaay bigger than that" replied Fox. "TASTE CHEESE YOU FREAAAAK!" yelled Fox, firing a cheese laced nova bomb into Andross's mouth. Andross's ship exploded and Andross parachuted himself to the ground, along with his robot buddy and number one confidante and fan...Fantron.
      "I have a splitting headache," said Andross. "Why must I always lose?" he wailed, pounding the earth with his fist.
      "Master, perhaps next time you should attack your own planet, Venom. Then get everyone to think Fox was responsible. Maybe then your people would finally support you and your unquenchable thirst for war" said Fantron.
      "Not a bad idea" said Andross in his evil robotic-like Darth Vader-esque voice. But then Fox cornered Andross, plasma blaster in tow. He looked quite proud, he had put on a good show!
      "Correction Emperor. That's a very BAD idea!" said Fox. "You're going to Corneria War Crimes Prison for at least thirteen years, you won't get any cheese, just cheap Norwegian beers!" Andross looked confused.
      Later that day...
      Fox, Falco, Peppy and Slippy, watching cheese burn in a restaurant founded by a hippie!
      "Yay, Fox!" clapped Falco, Peppy, and Slippy, as a giant block of cheese slowly melted under a candle's flames. They all clinged wine glasses together.
      "LONG LIVE TEAM STAR FOX. AND LONG LIVE THE GLORIOUS GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING...CHEESE!" they all yelled. The three men cheered and shared a group hug, then devoured more cheese and dived into an oversized apple cider jug. Outside the room was the beautiful Krystal, aspy. She had seen enough, Fox just wasn't her guy.
      Note: I took the words "THE END" and made them be out of cheese. Then I rolled them up in an awesomely tasty text sandwich.

      Greetings, fellow Cornerians I am here.
    • Revolver Ocelot
      By Revolver Ocelot
      Teaser trailer is here!
       
       
      What is it?
      Star Fox 2: HD is an ongoing work to remaster and add new features to the SNES Star Fox, the unreleased Star Fox 2 and potentially Star Fox 64.
      Currently, this project is being worked on by only one person. However, development positions may open in the future to help work on the game. As only simple scripting knowledge is known, this means there will definitely be spots open for CSharp and JS developers in the future.
      The game was originally developed under the working title of 'Electric Boogaloo' (yes, i understand where that comes from) however the name was changed for obvious reasons after the development became a serious project. The game is also going to have its own soundtrack, composed of the SNES Star Fox 1 and 2 soundtrack re-mastered.
      Unlike the SNES Star Fox 1, which had a linear 'corridor' mode for most of its levels, Star Fox 2: HD will be more open, allowing you to fly around and explore, maybe find an easter egg or two.

      Hello everyone. ^^
      My name is MidnightMike, and I'm here to show you my tribute animation to the original Star Fox, which celebrated it's 25th anniversary this past March.
      I know it might not be as good as you were hoping, but I had fun making it. Here it is. :)
