5 April 2005
Summary: This is only game that i have actually finished...The graphics are ok and so is the music. The controls are relativly simple. It's REALLY FAST!! Altogether there are 20 tracks(5 are unlockable)with 4 difficulties and 10 different car machine thingys, all but 4 of which you have to unlock. There are 3 different modes, Grand Prix, training and championship(you have to unlock this).
Excerpt: Ah, fond memories. Hours used to be whiled away on this game on the SNES - so when i saw I could get it for my GBA I jumped at the chance. And I wasn't disappointed. Every single bit of this game looks just like the original, and it plays just like it too. If you are a fan of the SNES version then this either won't disappoint as you slip back into old habits and revel in the familiar look of the whole thing, or you will find that, well, it just doesn't seem as good as...
Pros: Just like the original, but in the palm of your hand
Cons: A bit TOO like the original, not moved the goalposts any

Pros: Remake of classic snes version, quite long
Cons: Cars at the finish are no better than the ones at the end
Excerpt: F zero is back, this time on the Gameboy advance. I got this game for Christmas (what a surprise!) and although I wasn’t totally hooked on it at first I started to like it more later. The game cost £35. If you are wondering what F zero is it’s a futuristic racing game which debuted over ten years ago.
Excerpt: When purchasing a Game Boy Advance (£80 with a game about a year ago) I faced a difficult decision: which game do I choose? Well, after a wasted 20 minutes deciding, I eventually picked F-Zero: Maximum Velocity because I have the old N64 version and it looked pretty good, and on playing the game, my thoughts were correct: It was good. Story F-Zero: Maximum Velocity is a futuristic racing game.
Excerpt: Ah - Friday the 22nd June. Oh, wow another day you say? Well does the words Game boy Advance release date remind you of anything! Ah yes, that little wonder, what a superb idea Nintendo have! What can you play? You ask. Well there’s a little nippy game called F Zero X, maximum Velocity… … Tell me more you say! Well OK here goes. F Zero X has been around a long time. With the first title being on the SNES and the second being on the N64. Neither of them was a let down.
Excerpt: Now here’s a game that boasts blistering speed, mouth watering visuals and playability that will keep you coming back for years! All the ingredients for a brilliant racer then, and what is that game I hear you ask? Why it’s Maximum Velocity on the Game Boy Advance! Now don’t be thinking this is just a straight port from it’s older N64 brother because it isn’t, it’s a new game in it’s own right.
Pros: Speed, Graphics, look its a great game !
Cons: Maybe speeding past your frineds isn't every ones cup of tea?
Summary: F-ZERO is a classic, i remember it on the snes but the GBA version is just as good if not better. Its just so fast. A lot of GbA games suffer slow down when the screen gets busy, but f-zero is so smooth at all times while traveling at 576kmph round a track miles in the air.
Summary: As a showcase for the GBA, just as the original was a showcase for the SNES, F Zero works admirably. It's very, very fast, blur is non-existent and it's very good simple fun - perfect for a quick blast on the bus. Faults are minor, but include: nice enough but fairly barren presentation, a very low level of difficulty until Master level is unlocked (typically Gameboy), and CPU racers who get can get slightly erratic on the later levels, with your own craft usually coming...
Summary: F-Zero Yes, get it. I had a hard decision to pick one of F-Zero, GT Challenge, and GT Advance Championship Racing. F-Zero suited me best, and here's why. F-Zero has a quick learning curve, for starters. Dove right into 'Training' mode with the default vehicle, Hot Violet. As others have said, the graphics and colours are basic, but the speed and motion are exceptionally fluid. The basic gameplay is not as difficult as I expected: this is more two-dimensional (i.e.
