Like the previous post about Aaero, today I present another Star Fox Alternative game, to scratch that Star Fox itch while we wait for the next game in our beloved series.
Strike Force EX is already out on PS4 and on Steam, and quite reasonably priced. It is a very fast-paced, intense aerial combat game, featuring craft that are halfway between jet fighters and flying mechs. You have full freedom of movement to fly anywhere. Up, down, left, right, upside down, and rotated. Strafing is also just as easy. In that sense it's more like you're controlling a mech than an aircraft. The focus is to take out bogies and larger ship targets, while dodging fire and darting in and out of structures.
Any game with complete freedom of movement in 3D will run into the problem of having too much boring empty space. This game solves the problem by having stages that take place in densely packed areas full of floating ships and structures, so you're never far from something to interact with, in spite of what physics might have to say in the matter.
