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.
  • 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.
  • The Scrappy: Krystal, especially in comparison to her Base-Breaking Character status in previous games since she constantly acts as a whiny Woman Scorned throughout the game and never shuts up about what Fox did.
  • 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.
