Before I begin itís been awhile since Iíve done a review on my own. I am very sorry I havenít hurried up with this and Iíll be sure the next one doesnít take long.

F-Zero is a awesome racing series done by Nintendo. F-Zero GX is one hell of a epic game as Nintendo wasnít the only mastermind be hide the game. This was done by Nintendo, Sega and Namco. Well, with 3 masterminds be hide the wheel, did you think they were going to make this crap? This game also had a arcade counterpart, F-Zero AX, where you could take your memory card and use it in the machine and get new stuff. Unfortunately I canít Bloody find one.

On the Menu you have Grand Prix, Versus mode, Options, Replays, Story mode- wait a minute! A story mode in a racing game! Didnít I already say that having a story in a racing game would suck? Lets take a look at this. Okay so there is an opening cutscene where two F-Zero machines are driving along, one seems to be attacking the other one. So one crashes and he leaves his almost destroyed vehicle and- OMG itís Black Shadow! Black Shadow? Oh now I see where Sega comes in, the K.K.K. character namer is here. Nah I kid Black Shadow is always been in the series as the well armoured, slow guy. What a minuteÖ heís talking? But why? The series never had any dialogueÖ ever. Right skip the cutscene, this is far too much for me to bare right now. The whole story you play as Captain Falcon and there are a total of nine chapters, thatís good short and sweet right? WRONG! The chapters are easy at first but then it get a hell load harder after the first level, well thatís okay for the experts but newcomers might cry their eyes out Okay so now I can play the first levelÖ oh Jesus not another cutscene, Iím going to skip all of them. So what do I have to do in this stage? Well itís a simple collect all the goals thing, collect some, win, end of chapter. You have to buy the next chapter by using credits you get in Grand Prix. Look, this is far too much of a leap Iím going to lay down for a bit.

Don't worry, you're not high, but very close to being high.

Okay what else is one the menu screen. Character Profiles, Practice- if youíre new to F-Zero youíre going to bloody need this, Time Attack- like time attack in most Mario Kart games this is absolutely pointless and, get ready for this, Garage- Thatís right, Garage, take that up your ass Mario Kart! When you win in the Grand Prix you get ship parts you can buy in the garage. You also get credits to buy the parts, win then buy? Wonít that be annoying right? RIGHT!Ö oh, that didnít sound right. In Grand Prix you start with three difficulties and the fourth one is unlocked by (cheat deleted, unlucky!) and thereís three cups the fourth cup is your by (cheat deleted, unlucky again!). Also with credits you can buy more characters, thereís a total of 30 characters, 30? Jesus, lots of racing for you, and lol at you Mario Kart and Donkey Kong Jet Race! Hardly any of these guys are clones! You could basically say that everything that you do is linked to Grand Prix.

Okay you're now high.

Now this is the part where I tell you about the multiplayerÖ isnít it obvious to you? It a racing game of course thereís multiplayer. Like Donkey Kong Jet Race (oh, no) you can have up to a maximum of four racers per race. Um thereís 30 racers remember? So the masterminds made it so only four can race in multiplayer. Never mindÖ


Not even three masterminds can conjure up a perfect game, but this is very near to perfect. This is really one for the proís, hell not even that.

+ Brilliant gameplay
+ A collaboration to remember greatly
+ Wonderful sounds
+ Story mode is good
- Itís really a game for proís otherwise youíll quit without even trying

I would rate this game 10/10 as it's one of the greatest games I've ever played. It's so intense!

This is a good review though, and I guess 8.5 is a fair rating.

This was ok, but it seemed to lack the magic of the original SNES F-Zero, and even the N64 version.....probably because Nintendo didn't develop it. Sure it looks great, but something is missing from this game.

I'd have given this a 7/10.

Really good review Raw. Like Nintengod, whilst I did enjoy the game, it didn't have the charm for me that previous F-Zero titles did, but I did think story mode was a lot better than I was expecting and did pleasantly surprise me.

I did enjoy with this game and this game was really superb. 8/10 is better for this game.

I cant really decide which is better. F-Zero X or F-Zero GX.
