    If we cannot have an actually F-Zero, FAST Racing NEO definitely is a great substitute. This is a fun and challenging Wii U racer that will keep you entertained for a long while, and an outstanding experience especially for a relatively unknown indie studio.

    If you love racing games - and maybe even if you don't but are willing to try - be sure to pick this up. We don't think you'll be disappointed.

    A magnificent visual environment, a fitting soundtrack, very challenging races that are perfectly matched with the controllers and its multiplayer modes make FAST Racing Neo one of the best indie games on the Wii U and a compulsory option for fans of fast racing games.

    Fans of those types of racing games will be in awe of what Shin’en has accomplished here. I know it is cliché to say, but please give this team the rights to make a new F-Zero game. Fast Racing NEO is the closest and best thing to happen to the genre in years.

    FAST Racing Neo isn't a great game merely because the genre is lacking, it actually stands out on its own merits as a fantastic racer and a must buy for anyone who has been waiting years for a new game from the F-Zero or WipEout mould.

    FAST Racing NEO is an impressive racing game that requires a lot out of its players, as a lack of customizable controls, and the steep learning curve really limits the title's accessibility. If you're down for a challenge, though, then step right up.

    Even at maximum velocity it fails to stir the blood like the games to which it's most indebted. [Feb 2016, p.120]

The game looks fantastic on WiiU and shows what can be done with some incredible coding and technical prowess. Shin'en have become known for squeezing the most out of Nintendo hardware. Their mastery of their craft is on display with 60 fps anti grav racing. What is even more impressive is they found a simple yet interesting way to add a bit of extra depth to racing. You swap colors to hit color corresponding bits of the track to gain a boost.

    If there is one criticism I have; it would be that the UI is a bit spartan and plain looking. But for a game that costs $15 its hard to quibble.

    Highly overrated! Why, because this game is lacking depth in many ways and other bad design decisions:
    - No car tuning whatsoever
    - Not enough event variety
    - Weird save-game mechanism

    It could have be a really good game if some more development would have put into it.
