YMMV / Star Fox Command

  • Anti-Climax Boss: The Arrow Head in the Asteroid Belt (guaranteed to be the first final boss you come up to) goes down without a severe amount of trouble. It's actually more intimidating when it has the home field advantage (In the Venom Sea), on top of being suffixed with another fight by virtue of its pilot not dying in the void of space upon the vehicle's destruction.
  • Base-Breaking Character: Krystal. While some seemed to sympathize with her predicament of being forced off the team for what is seen as a rather dumb reason, others saw her as a whiny Woman Scorned throughout the game who never shut up about what Fox did and was too harsh on him. Some deride the game for its portrayal of Krystal as an attempt to try and make her a weaker character.
  • Contested Sequel: The game pretty much divided the fanbase.
  • Draco in Leather Pants: In-universe, both Krystal and Dash paint some of Andross' earlier actions as one of a scientist attempting to make Venom habitable before he turned to trying to rule the Lylat System. Dash is understandable in that Andross was his grandpa. As for Krystal...maybe she was just yanking Fox's chain.
  • Scrappy Mechanic:
    • The game's now-defunct Nintendo WFC multiplayer mode was a chore to play, for one reason: If one player, even in a 3- or 4-player match, dropped out, the entire match ended for everybody and the match was not filed into the non-quitting players' records. This made ragequittters and players with poor connections the bane of every player who just wanted to have one full match.
    • The strictly stylus controls.
  • That One Boss: Fighting Zazanga and Octoman on Venom can be a huge pain, as they jet constantly by you, often evading your attacks. It'll take a good amount of charged shots to take them down.
