    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't be picky...Just GET IT! When somebody hears the name "F-Zero" what would they think of? I would think of an evil villain in a video game. But, I guess you can say that F-Zero is a tournament. F-Zero GX is a new and improved tournament. They go from extreme to the ULTIMATE extreme. The only thing that I think that they really have to touch up on is, the controls. I feel the controls are a bit too slippery. For instance, when your just driving along and then you have to turn, you would INSTANTLY crash! That's my only real problem with the game. In the game you always feel like you're on your toes (considering the fact that there are electric fences and the other races can hit you with spin attacks. But, isn't that a good thing, to be cautious, nervous and excited while playing a fast-paced game like the one listed above. I wanted this game because I played, the original, "F-Zero" for the Super Nintendo. Old-School right? I guess you can say that, but it wasn't too long ago when they released the original. Mario Bros. I know I can't say that, considering the fact that I am only fifteen, but, is fifteen really that old? Well, I still need to cover some more features about the game, so I'll get to that. The graphics in the game remind me of the graphics we see today, so that tells you a lot! The sound is awesome because there's some rock music in the background with several guitar solos, so I enjoy that! The tracks are just...WOW! I'd say my favorite track is the cylinder track in the last cup in the Grand Prix. Vehicle Customization...hmm... I'd say it's pretty sloppy but, I think it's that way to make it more realistic. Okay, let me explain, on each vehicle there are scratches and rips, I guess to make it go with the real world. I would definately tell my friends about this game and I am just telling you now get it because of the looks and how much fun it would be for you. But, if you are picky towards the controls...you should try it out but I cannot GUARANTEE that you'll like it. But, try it and see what happens!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Race on This is the best F-zero game ever made! There is so much to do in this game. You can do story mode which a lot of some level are hard but you beat them if you keep trying. The cutscenes in this game are really good. In the tournament mode you can pick a racer and race against tons of racers in the grand prix. One you earn money you can purchase racers and parts to create and custimize a vehicle. The car custimization is really good. In the game play all of the cars go really fast. A lot of the music and soundtracks are really good. The stages are made really well. The graphics are really good as well. You should definlitly pick this game up if you see it. If they make a sequel to this game on the wii they should make lots of new characters including Rick Wheeler (from GP Legends), New soundtracks, Comepletely new racing tracks, Lots of new custimizations, and the online should be really good.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tough,fun and fast F-Zero GX was surprisingly outsourced to a third party and one we all know real well. The game was developed by SEGA which I found to be cool. Which now its becoming more common for the big N. Graphically F-Zero GX was one of the pretty Gamecube games that really stood out upon its release to the market. Interesting art style mixed with high quality grahpics. The vehicles are not the most detailed but they look good enough. In the sound department I have no complaints. It seems everything dealing with the sound from the music and special effects were a well coordinated effort. Gameplay is fast and fun. At times the game can be tough of a rediculous level. But this difficulty adds to some frustration but it also adds the depth of replayability. What this means is sure you are going to get frustrated at times but that frustration is either going to make you do one of two things. 1. throw your controller on the ground or 2. Keep trying and trying to get better. There is enough tracks on here and theres 3 cups in grand prix. Theres time attack,vs and one of the more unique is the story driven one which is a blast once you get underway. Theres quite a few modes for an arcade racer and I suggest you try all of them. All in all F-Zero GX is a solid effort of an aging franchise and granted this game came out back in 03 if I remember correctly it is still fun to play to this day. If you can withstand challenging gameplay your gonna fall in love with this title. I do not know if there will be a sequal on the Wii or not but I def. recommend this title for anyone with a Gamecube or a Wii.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from f-zero gx review F-zero GX is the 3rd f-zero console game for gamecube. the series has been known for its variety, difficulty, and most of all, SPEED! this is a futuristic racing game were cars are replaced with hover cars that go up to 3000 kg/h! design: I must say F-zero GX really shows what the gamecube can do. the graphics are simply amazing. even the vehicles are fully detailed, giving the machines a battle-scared look. the tracks are huge and twist through the air. some tracks are kind of frustrating, but they are tons of fun to drive through. the music is pretty much techno rock. each song fit's the mood of each track perfectly. It's a bit of a disappointment to see the music switch from rock (f-zero x) to techno. gameplay: the gameplay is fantastic! Except for multiplayer. All 30 cars on track make this game a fun challenge. It gets crowded sometimes though. But this game is FAST! ITS REALY FAST! IT'S SO FAST ITS ILLEGAL TO BLINK-AND-DRIVE! The speed provides a lot of action packed racing. The game runs smoothly and never glitches. Bad things: this game is WAY to hard. The tracks get a bit repetitive. Multiplayer sucks. No online.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from F-Zero GX is the best Gamecube racer, one of the best racers ever F-Zero GX is the final console version of the popular F-Zero racing series, and it is one of the best racers ever created. The race style is futuristic and like many Nintendo franchises is a bit cartoon-ish, but there is some simulation involved and really good physics (A mix between a game-style like MarioKart and Need For Speed). The Good: A wide variety of over 40 characters, race against 29 other CPU's in any given race, Fastest racer you will ever play, Excellent car/part/paint scheme customizations (every machine is unique in performance, too), Over 25 tracks, 4 difficulties (one of the hardest racers ever), ability to save race replays, Story Mode (one of the best new features in the game, provides backstory to the F-Zero "universe"), character/machine biographies and movies, big soundtrack with primarily fast-pace techno music (over 50 soundtracks, you are pretty much guaranteed to like or hate a few of them), Time-trial mode, lots of unlockables, best graphics for any gamecube game, easy-to-learn controls. The Bad: F-Zero wasn't really meant for multiplayer (though a sub-par 4-player mode exists), No online (like the majority of Cube games), Hard to master (most players will never make it through the whole game), gameplay music can't be changed for certain tracks on certain modes, can't name your own customizable machine (name is based on the parts), no custom characters (although you will probably like at least one of the 41), tracks get just a tad repetitive after a while. The Ugly: Octoman In the end, F-Zero GX is a must-buy considering it definitely worth way more than edit (but sells for less) even if you don't especially like racers. The customizable features go about as far as they can for any racing game and there is a super variety of characters, tracks, vehicles, etc. The goods definitely outweigh the bads--this game gets 9.5 stars, almost perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from His name is Captain Falcon. This game is a sequel to the futuristic racing Nintendo franchise known as F-Zero. You may know it a bit due to Captain Falcon's appearances in the Super Smash Bros. series, or because you played one of the other ones. Either way SEGA did a great job making a fantastic racing game with plenty to do and plenty of challenge along with it. Gameplay 9.5/10 - The gameplay itself is topnotch. This futuristic racing game will have you trying to struggle to the top of all 30 racers, using strategic use of your boost, memorizing the track layout , and even knocking out all your rival competitors! The track design is topnotch as well, although a little frustrating at times. I just wish there were more "area" design types. The controls are really responsive, and what happens is totally up to you and your reaction speed. Also there are standard "Prix" modes, along with a fairly cheesy (Yet hard) story mode. Challenge 10/10 - Plenty of difficulty here, especially if you go for the Very Hard challenges. Only in time you'll develop the reflexes needed to win. By the way, it's not like a Mario Kart's "rubberband", or "always behind you", difficulty. Graphics 10/10 - SEGA makes great use of the GameCube's hardware to make a games that looks pretty darn good when going fast or slow. Everything looks bright and vibrant, and nothing looks out of place. The menus are fairly simple, but they get the job done. Music 9/10 - The music in my opinion is just awesome, as each techno track fits the mood for each setting. The only reason a point is taken off is because some people are disappointed by the change to techno when compared to F-Zero X's also fitting hard rock. Overall this game deserves a 10/10 rating, and is fully recommended to anybody who likes racing games, hard games, or heck, simply wants to see the best version of a game Captain Falcon is from.
