I picked up Starfox at Sears on sale for $20..

But when I let my son play it, he said he 'beat' it in like 20 minutes..

I didn't believe him, but he showed me the credit roll..

Is it that easy?

I was hoping for more (although I did get it for a good deal)..

Ugh. There's a 3DS Mode (Easy) and Original 64 Mode (Harder).
I usually go 64, but even then the challenge is doing well enough to earn medals.
You can get to the final boss in an hour or something, but it's one of those games you play over and over. There are different routes/levels you can go through. It's a good game, especially for $20.

P.S. Multiplayer is super fun, too!
(You could have just looked up what I just said, but oh well.)

Really? I thought the only difference was controls. Guess I might have to play it on N64 mode to make it last longer in future playthroughs (I never played the N64 original except once or twice with a friend). My main problem with the length and multiple playthroughs is that, at least for me, it's impossible to find most of the "hidden" paths to get to different levels without using Google. I mean, they seem so random. Ugh. :angry:

I don't know.
I beat the game.
To my understanding, there's "fake" Andross, which reveals itself to me a robot in the second half of the battle when it's skin gets blown off, and then there's "true" Andross, where in the second half of the battle reveals himself to be a giant brain and two eyes.

Andross is ridiculously easy even for the true ending. I have way more trouble with star wolf and crew, and some of the bosses.

The game has multiple paths though. The default path you go down is just sad and pathetic. It's the alternate paths that are really fun. The game is pretty short honestly, but it does take a while to go to every level.

I had more troubles with Venom easy side on hard mode (when trying to get the medal) and the Star Wolf fight on Venom hard side than either of the Andross fights.

But anyway yeah, it is very easy on easy mode, but if you play it on N64 mode after getting all the medals so you unlock 'hard' mode, that one will give you a bit of a challenge.

No offense guys, but I used spoiler tags for a reason. :ha:

You can't spoil a game that has virtually no story.

No one really cares, lol.

This was pretty much my thought. It'd be like talking about
when Aerith dies in Final Fantasy VII
Everybody should know about the stories to games that came out in the 90s : P
