What makes Star Fox 64 great gameplay-wise, to me, is the fact you can keep playing it over and over again and it feels a bit different every time. Getting all the medals can be pretty difficult for a novice player, but that just makes it all the more fun. For me, trying to get all the medals gradually made my skill increase until finally I can consider myself a pro.

And those reviews don't look good. They look quite the opposite actually if you take into consideration that it is a classic a lot of people liked. Nintendo Power giving it an 80/100?! ouch.
actually if you bothered to read them and not look at numbers like most ignorant people then they do look good, better than good in fact. SF64 is a classic, it was an amazing game but this is 2011 not 1997. Ironically the "ouch" 80/100 came from a guy who never rated SF64 to begin with. 8/10 is still high. Read next time before making silly assumptions. This game has no Wifi MP and is a remake. Did you expect it to get AAA ratings across the board? don't be silly. I'm buying this day 1 but even i'm amazed at the scores it's getting.
