  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.

    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
