Starfox or F-Zero

I have 1000 Wii Points. I never played Star Fox 64, and I only rented F-Zero X once, and thought it was fun, but difficult.

Suggestions?

star fox goes too quick, but its a good too quick. the dogfights/multiplayer are kind of wiered cause it forces four player splitscreen all the time even if its just two players. f zero is still too difficult. i happen to think the series has gotten more and more erroneous with time. it gets pretty hard to win races in the one for 64. youll probably end up using the cheat code to unlock all the racers and tracks. i still have both those carts. i find myself playing fzero more often.

I think Starfox 64 is one of the top five games from its era. The difficulty levels of progressing through the planet system different ways (three base paths with warps and transfers between), beating bosses/planets different ways (there's almost always a "fast" and a "slow" way, plus entirely different bosses in some cases), the Pro mode you unlock when you defeat the final boss at his hardest (this really changes the game--more enemies in new places, plus Fox gets shades like his father), the storyline changes that can occur based on your performance (a later level blows a fin off of you mothership if beaten too slowly, which stays gone in all cutscenes thereafter for instance), the relatively great graphics, and the level of skill you can develop in the game...man, I'm going to have to emulate this one for old time's sake. I can't recommend Starfox enough. The first one was ahead of its time and suffered graphically, but 64 was a swan song of its generation.

Starfox shows a level of completion and enjoyment in single player that most games only approach in online multiplayer, especially for shooters--which almost never have multiple endings or stage paths. It's right there on par with Goldeneye. Play it, and if you don't like it, I owe you an Arwing.

F-Zero X!

I love playing that, yeah it takes a bit to get to know how to steer your chosen vehicle perfectly but it's great when you've got the knack of it. Loads of great courses to race on with great multiplayer (<3 slot machine) and death race mode (which I used to kick ass at)

As for Starfox 64 I've only played about 3 times, didn't really appeal to me although (I did only get to play multiplayer)

I'd go with F-Zero X. I liked that game a lot and I was never a really big fan of StarFox. I think I have beat F-Zero X a couple of times. I know I beat F-Zero on the SNES(on Master) a few times.

There is no sig.

Starfox 64 rules. I remember playing that 6 or so years ago. I played it all the time. I don't remember much more though.

I ended up buying Paper Mario. I considered not buying Paper Mario, because I've already played it, but in the end I decided I fear new things.

That's too bad.

FZero-X is a great game. (a bit too easy though, I lap others on Master difficulty staff ghosts are insane though)

Starfox 64 is, as others have said, excellent.

I couldn't choose between them. They are both too good.

Paper Mario... just can't compare.

I would still get StarFox64 anyway. The game is short, but there's so many paths to choose from that it's a different experience every single time. Quite an amazing game if I do say so myself...

This is a sig of some nature.

If you're good enough in Expert mode (getting all medals) you can unlock the Pilot option in multiplayer, its really shotty though.

It's better than starting a new one.
