Summary: This in my opinion is a decent game. The gameplayis decent but other titles like mario kart are better. I must confess though the only reason i bought this game was because of captain falcon in super smash bros.Well anyway if you really like racers then you might want to try this, especially if you like kirby air ride. WARNING THIS GAME WILL KILL YOUR EYES AFTER ABOUT 20 MINUTES BECAUSE IT IS SO FAST!!!!!
Excerpt: F-Zero GX. Many say it's the fastest racing game of them all. Whilst this may be true, lets look at some promises and specs: - RRP (When released), £39.99 - Rated Teenager by ESRB - For Nintendo Gamecube - Licensed by Nintendo. Well, to start with, lets have a short history lesson of the F-Zero franchise. It all started on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (S N E S) with a game called F-Zero. A rather basic racing game.
Pros: Blistering speeds and graphics, detailed tracks and plenty of modes
Cons: Some modes lack, a bit glitchy, Need F - Zero AX to unlock things
Excerpt: For me, F-zero was one of the games that made the SNES worth owning, yes there were a lot of other great SNES games but F-Zero was one that stood out. In fact some would say F-Zero started the futuristic racing genre and paved the way for the likes of Wipeout and the Extreme G series.
Excerpt: The original F-Zero on the S.N.E.S was an absolute classic and its offspring, F-Zero X on the N64, ranked among my favourite games on said console. So it was with no small amount of anticipation that I looked forward to the latest home console addition to the futuristic racing series - F-Zero GX on the Nintendo GameCube. And did it satisfy my every gaming desire? Read on to find out!
Pros: Very playable, awesome graphics, many features and hard !
Cons: Battling element is a let down, poor multiplayer and too hard for some .
Summary: Sorry to disapoint all the F-Zero fans but this game just doesn't quite live up to the original Super Famicom F-Zero. I can't believe people are saying it is so quick or the quickest game ever, Mario Kart is quicker, Need for Speed Underground is quicker, even V-Rally is quicker !!! The overall package is good, smooth graphics, ok sound, infuriatingly tricky, but it simply isn't that fast !!! Overall its a good game, but it truly ain't that quick.
Excerpt: F-Zero GX is an amazing futuristic racer that puts you in the cockpit of a racing hovercar from, like, the year 3333, and lets you loose at speeds of up to 2500+ km/h!!!! I pre-ordered F-Zero GX about a month before it's release. 10 days after the release it finally arrived. This was all the fault of the postal strike. But, my friend pre-ordered Rouge Squadron 3: Rebel Strike, which came out the same day, and got it on the day of release! How is that fair?!
Excerpt: Why do so many people play racing game? Obviously its to go fast and do something they can't do in real life. well this game is FAST. REALLY FAST. So fast in fact that it'll make your eyes bleed! The first time you'll pay this it will give you an adrenaline rush like no other game before it. And then after that you'll be hooked - hooked deep. Well let's break it down. What makes this game so good? The controls for one thing - which can only be described as perfect.
Summary: I've put off buying a racing game for my GameCube for a while, but decided to buy F-Zero GX after reading some good reviews here on Amazon. Unfortunately I can't say I was impressed. What's good: 1. Graphics - smooth and rich, even at high speed. 2. Easy to pick up - even if you're not a gaming expert, it won't take you long to get the hang of it. What's bad: 1. Lastability - most of tracks feel pretty similar, and none of them is very interesting.
Summary: the reason i have only given this game 3 out of 5 is because its not asgood as the N64 version 'F Zero X'. granted, it has better graphics andthe gameplay is more diverse and varied than the previous version. but itjust doesnt have the same feel. it feels too clean, like a record that hasbeen over produced. it feels a bit empty. thats just my opinion tho.
Excerpt: I have always been a big fan of the F Zero franchise. The N64 version (F-Zero X) was absolutely fantastic putting all other futuristic racers to shame. The general concept of F Zero is that you race around imaginatively laid out tracks in gravity defying spaceships at breakneck speeds, battling it out with 29 other ships on the screen at once. You can't do this on any other game - which is why I find the series so appealing.
