  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.

    Fast paced, superb controls, great tracks, awesome music, really great graphics, solid framerate and hard as **** difficulty just make the deal better. One of the best games that the Cube has to offer.

    F**K!!!The dominant word while playing this extremely well crafted and difficult game from Nintendo and Sega.To get it out of the F**K!!!The dominant word while playing this extremely well crafted and difficult game from Nintendo and Sega.To get it out of the way...F-Zero is hard. Old school hard. And if you're not up for that, then leave the game on the shelf. S**T. The word you can't resist saying while experiencing the blinding speeds of this game, at a constant, unwavering 60fps. Yes, even in 4player mode!An amazing feat by the developers. As well, as rendering beautiful, high quality FMV's. Something thought impossible because of the GC disks. Not to mention the ability to create your own crafts. My one word...Congratulations. Nintendo. Sega. Take a bow. You have created a masterpiece. Expand

    Still the most exhilarating racing game ever, in my opinion, even in 2017. Only Burnout 2 comes close. I've just gone back to playing it onStill the most exhilarating racing game ever, in my opinion, even in 2017. Only Burnout 2 comes close. I've just gone back to playing it on the Dolphin emulator and the graphics still look great (I've upped the resolution to 1080p though). The main Grand Prix mode is awesome and not too hard, but the story mode quickly becomes next to impossible! It's still worth 10/10 though because there's so much content on offer here. I wish a modern version of this absolute classic could be made for the Switch/Wii U. It has to be said, the courses are the real star! Expand

It could also well be one of the hardest games i have ever played, the story made really made me angry, but i still kept playing it until i finally unlocked all the courses, (still need to unlock the characters, but probably not going to cause of how hard the story mode is)... Games has overall fast paced gameplay, the most fitting and amazing soundtrack ever put into a game, and excellent vehicle customization... why would anyone give this game anything lower than a 10???

    As a racing game, this one is unbelievable!! You'll be on the edge of your couch (or whatever you sit on) while you play F-zero GX As a racing game, this one is unbelievable!! You'll be on the edge of your couch (or whatever you sit on) while you play F-zero GX because it's incrediblly FAST! It's really exciting. Some of the racing levels are really awesome looking too. My only problem with the game is how hard the story mode is! I actually made it pretty far but it is seriously one of the hardest challenges on the Cube. Still a great game though! Expand
