  1. The challenge of this game will bring out the best or the worst in a gamer, a true test of ability and skill. All of this is given to us with a great story, memorable characters, vivid settings, all wrapped up in a presentation that's second to none.
  2. May well be the perfect GameCube title. With its amazingly complex racing model even experienced gamers are in for a substantial learning curve and newcomers to the series will be in for quite a shock. Visually stunning and a total blast to play.
  3. Speaking of unlockables, diehard players will find it near impossible to get everything.

    Filled with some of the most fluid graphics I have ever seen, tons of hidden items, easy to get into controls and a lot of just plain FUN, F-Zero's only real fault lies in its difficulty.
  5. No matter how much is going on at any given time, the frame rate is a rock solid 60, and for a game as fast as this that's a godsend.
  6. The Emblem Editor is also a nifty addition for those who like to be creative. You have the ability to make your own emblem with the use of various art techniques.
  7. What should have been a fast, flashy, light-hearted affair is somehow grim and joyless. There's wonderful content here, but unfortunately most gamers won't ever see most of it because it's locked away behind a series of near-impossible challenges.

    one of the best racing games ever invented. The soundtrack is remarkable especially how it seems to flow so well with the tracks themselves,one of the best racing games ever invented. The soundtrack is remarkable especially how it seems to flow so well with the tracks themselves, it gives a truly dynamic experience throughout the whole game creating the general feeling of a virtual futuristic rollercoaster. The gameplay itself is addicting. In a nutshell you race one lap without boost and than after the 2nd lap you can start kicking it in high gear and I mean HIGH GEAR! This game is SO freaking fast. I spent hours on this game and it never got boring. Expand

    Will I ever beat this game? Ever? That's what makes F-Zero so great. When you die, and I mean WHEN, it makes you go "Let's try again, I'll doWill I ever beat this game? Ever? That's what makes F-Zero so great. When you die, and I mean WHEN, it makes you go "Let's try again, I'll do it this time!", but of course you die again. And again. And again. **** Here's what you'll get out of this game: Gameplay so hard it puts Battletoads to shame, magnificent visuals, a kickass soundtrack, and the chance to play as the spawn of Chuck Norris himself, Captain Falcon. If you only enjoy a game when you're constantly winning, you'll never enjoy this game because you will DIE, with nobody to blame but yourself and your need for speed. That's it, though. The gameplay works so well that you can't fault anyone but yourself. This game has no luck involved. It's just you racing 29 other contestants in a brutal death match of who can be faster. Expand

    I loved this game. It was fast and fun. The graphics were very good and there were NO slow downs with all the speed. There were like 30 I loved this game. It was fast and fun. The graphics were very good and there were NO slow downs with all the speed. There were like 30 racers and very customizable crafts. There were plenty of modes to keep you playing for a long time. I played a sim racer after this and it was a bore fest. Expand
