I guess I can't speak for Goulies as I only have opinions based on reviews but Starfox. Sure, it had silly flaws, like some cheesy voice acting here and there, but the only REALLY bad thing about it was the fighting system.
Apart from that it showed damn good potential in places.
Everybody who's properly slated it loved it for the first few hours or so and then it slowly started to sicken you with repetitive gameplay.

Capcom took their sweet time with Resi, and anyway, only the single player is a remake and that's almost an extra feature for the main live game. Most of the time will have been put into multiplayer mechanics, making the game as fun and balanced as possible.

I know that! :-)
I remember when MS first said it and we were all thinking, "Rare make 5 games in two and a half years? These guys have been playing too much Banjo Tooiee and are living in Cloud Cuckoo Land!" :-D

Back into shape? It's Mr Pants, alright. Saburwulf, alright. Banjo Pilot, awful. Gruntilda's revenge: ok. The DKC remakes, not as good as the originals. Grabbed by the Gholies, terrible. Starfox Adventures, terrible.

They haven't made a first class game in ages.

No Gholies was a horrible game and i wouldn't call it a quick demo. Starfox was a total mess.

No Kameo will reveal something and I have my doubts. Conker is a remake, it'll take something special to screw that over. 2 years to make a re-make indeed.

Conker was, and still is one of the best video games ever made. It is not avaialbale in the shops anymore but can be purchased (at a cost) on Ebay or Amazon.

The graphics for the time were wonderful. The gameply is magical and the atmosphere is unbelieveable.

The game takes you to many great levels, one of my favourites being the gobby 'Great Mighty Poo'.

The game is inovative and up there with the best Nintendo have to offer.

You'll just have to buy it (or have you already got it) and see for yourself.

Rare have never had problems making nice screenshots.

It's the game play that tends to be the problem.

Rare have just been shaken up.
They'll be back into shape soon enough.

Starfox was a mess, but they only screwed up one aspect of the game, which itself ruined the rest of the game. Almost everything else about the game was sublime, especially the graphics.
I've not played Goulies, but I've heard that it was more of a quick tech demo the scratched up to get their heads around the Xbox.

Kameo and Conker will reveal all.


Talking of which, wasn't there supposed to be 5 games released buy Spring 2005? I'm counting 1 so far! :-D

Its not like a computer. It may have a few very minor factors that relates itself to be a P.C (e.g Microsoft made it, its online and it encounters refreshing issues) but it is so very different, mate. So very different.
