|Fox McCloud is back in the cockpit and ready for some high-flying combat in his DS debut. After a jaunt of third-person action-adventure in the GameCube's Star Fox Adventures and Star Fox: Assault, Star Fox Command sends fans back to the skies, in the roles of anthropomorphic animals who pilot sci-fi fighter craft against evil enemies. To make their way through the intergalactic escapade. players plot their course in a turn-based map mode, where good strategy is rewarded with efficient deployment. When an enemy is encountered, the game switches to a battle mode featuring the series' familiar, fast-paced dog-fighting. The game makes use of the DS interface by having players steering their ships with the stylus on the touch screen, for a control scheme designed to be easy to learn but more difficult to master.
