  1. The framerate and action more than makes up for the slightly less than average graphics. This is a title that no self-respecting N64 owner should pass up. Nintendo has created the first true N64 classic since Mario 64.

    In the grand scheme of things, F-Zero X will probably appeal to older gamers more, who want pure racing over arcade frills and still have a soft spot fot the original F-Zero. An excellent update to the grand daddy of cyber racers that only suffers under its generic look.
  3. This is quite possibly the best racing game I've ever played. It doesn't have the glitz of some other racing games, but it has one thing that's been sorely neglected. Speed. Lots of speed.
  4. With the random track generator, the smooth visuals, the awesome multiplayer & the comic-book atmosphere, this game becomes a must-by.
  5. A little more innovation would have been appreciated, but this is one case where a more or less straight update of the SNES original was all that was needed to produce a great game.
  6. It might not look too hot, but F-Zero X is one hell of a racer. [Jan 2004, p.189]
  7. F-Zero X is a terrific update of a classic game that deserves the attention of anyone who owns an N64.

    The fastest racing game in the N64. The multiplayer is very fun (and fast).

    This is my favorite game of all time.

    Maybe it won't be as good for you but this game has it all. Speed, perfect controls, great
    This is my favorite game of all time.

    Maybe it won't be as good for you but this game has it all. Speed, perfect controls, great atmosphere, ultra smooth frame rate and a death metal soundtrack that will make you think how on earth did Nintendo release such a hardcore game? Who cares about the lack of backgrounds? The races are supposed to be high on the sky or the stratosphere. The lack of backgrounds and spectators give this game a nice feel of isolation and danger. Nobody will come to help you if your ship is destroyed and if you get off the track... well... you are dead.

    Amazing game

    I despised F-Zero X. One of the worst games I've ever played. Very repetitive, terrible graphics and just plain boring. The whole game I despised F-Zero X. One of the worst games I've ever played. Very repetitive, terrible graphics and just plain boring. The whole game was bland and I can't stress how repetitive it was. I do give it a one though, because it does give me some enjoyment, though very little. I would never recommend this game in a million years. Full Review »
