May 10, 2012This 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… Full Review »
Apr 4, 2014I daresay, the critics who criticize graphics are out of the league. I mean, sure, it's less than normal games (especially the bill-boarded/imaged graphics), but you never see such metallic graphics in cars. Even if you go 600 MPH, the graphics of the track are pretty cool. The metallic graphics match the sky, and are high quality, even if far away. 60 frames per second? Oh yes. GREAT! Barely lagged below 60 F/S. it's nice for varied challenges, and the death race is completable. use side attacks L+L. very lovable, even the Wii version (virtual console)! love the heavy metal music. and Rainbow Road? PSYCHEDELIC! awesome night sky and graphics. virtually controlling your flying. i mean, there is a lot to love about this ****… Full Review »

This game is a high-octane racer and has one of the best multiplayer offerings on the N64. The soundtrack is one of my all time favorites and the course design still holds up to day. The best racer on the N64.… Full Review »
