FOR FOX SAKE
Ubisoft’s Nintendo connection has come up trumps again. It’s not quite accurate to call Fox McCloud’s Switch-exclusive Starlink appearance a cameo – he and the Star Fox crew have a mini-campaign all of their own. In it, you must chase down Wolf across the galaxy in a series of missions that frequently outclass those in the main story. Every character is faithfully written and acted, Fox’s interactions with the main cast provide a welcome bit of fun to a lacklustre script, and calling in backup for Fox’s super ability even plays the Corneria theme. All told, it’s one of the best Star Fox games in a long time, and makes Starlink well worth a punt for the superfans.
