I saw footage of this game and really wanted it. I've been at work for about 45 minutes and I relieved a guy who worked night shift. He asked me what new games I've been playing. I told him I had Tomb Raider, Spider-Man, and I just pre-ordered Red Dead 2. He said, "Man, I've been playing that Star Link".
My reply was "What the heck is Star Link!?"

I forgot the game was coming out and I even forgot what the name of it was! I've even seen this thread and didn't think twice about it. I guess I have to get it soon--after checking out a review or two.

It's not the greatest game in the world, but it's kinda fun and you can sink time in it. It has the typical addicting 'just one more thing' stuff going on. Just get one more outpost for your alliance, fight one more legion extractor, raid one more outlaw hideout.

Only digital, as far as I know (I don't know much, though).

The digital version doesn't require the figurines. Plus the digital version comes with a lot more content for less money than the physical version.

Digital it is then... Really large file size though, argh!

Well, physical you don't really save, the game had a gigantic day one patch of 6GB.

Yup, I had to go to work and once I was back the updated finalized itself. You can still play the game in the mean time though :)

Prediction: Nobody on VGC bought this game on non-Switch consoles.

i am waiting to buy it on xbox, no toy. saving for RDR2, money is tight with xmas coming up. plus black friday isnt far off, maybe a great deal then as well.



 

I'm trying to beat a few games before I get this.... Hoping to buy it when it goes on sale, but from what I've seen, this game looks like a lot of fun.



     

Check out my lastest games review: Fast RMX and  Snipperclips: Cut it out Together

Game is really fun. Got the Switch version obviously and really am surprised how well Fox and company fit into the storyline and the game. I've found this game surprisingly addicting because I want to liberate all planets and destroy all Legion inhabiting that planet. So to do that you have kill all legion main towers and eliminate their forces and build your own bases, I find that super fun.

Battling giant Arch Primes(giant legion monsters) is also fun, especaily when you're able to call in Peppy,Slippy or Falco to help you.

When you don't have planet legions to conquer and beat, you'll have a ton of outlaws and bases to fight and beat in the space as well.

Lots and lots to do in the game, I'm roughly 20hrs into it and still havent completed the Star Fox missions or even the main story yet because I keep getting side tracked

Did Starlink bomb sales wise I have not heard anything about the numbers it did. I actually thought the game looked okay but the whole toys to life aspect of the game was a bad choice.

edit: never mind sure Ubi lost fare amount on this one

I enjoyed it from start to finish. Not into toys to life, but luckily the digital version plays like a regular game with all the content out of the gate.

I suggest people buy it, and buy digital for the best experience.
