F-Zero X

(Still Under Construction)

For my official 2000th post on RetroUprising, I'm reviewing a childhood favorite, F-Zero X.

[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekTjuJ1bKqY"]YouTube - My Life in 1 Word[/ame]


Story:
[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7URHcvJJcI"]YouTube- F-Zero X Intro[/ame]

As with F-Zero on the SNES, the story remains the same, the F-Zero Grand Prix is returning and Main Character Captain Falcon is trying to win another
championship, but has to overcome the dangers of the F-Zero racetracks.

Gameplay:
F-Zero X isn't labeled one of the greatest racing video games of all time, its
innovative gameplay was almost unseen or heard of before its release.

Graphics:
As seen in the intro and image, F-Zero X has to be one of the worst looking racing
games of all time, almost every texture on the track, background, and race car
looks very sub-par, unlike the original F-Zero which is one of the best looking
racing games of all time for it's innovative Mode 6 Graphics.

Granted, these graphical changes were used to keep the game running
smoothly and the gameplay more than makes up for the graphics.
Unlike fellow futuristic racer Wipeout 64, which had excelent graphics, but
average gameplay.

Sound:
F-Zero X's soundtrack is one of the best racing soundtracks of all time, if you
like rock 'n roll that is. Every level in F-Zero X contains hardcore rock from
beginning to end, keeping the blood pumping at every turn.

Mute City:

White Land (My personal favorite):

Challenge:
As with every F-Zero game, you will die alot because of the roller coaster
level designs which can be difficult to get used to. Also, the computer AI on
higher difficulty are near perfection making the race for first place a true reward.

Overall:
F-Zero X is a supreme master in the racing genre, with inovative gameplay
and a diverse cast of racers to choose from, it's a must download for the
Virtual Console.

4.5/5

re: F-Zero X

I loved this game! Oh and you're going to have trouble taking off the (under construction) part from your review title. I think Kong's going to have to do that for you when you're done, because I sure as hell couldn't take that off from my review...

re: F-Zero X

Don't know. I still can't take it off from my Megaman 3 review. I sent WB a message and he told me that he really doesn't have the clearance to fix that. We probably need to tell Kong and see if he can fix this for us.

Talk to Sabby, DB or Ten for assitance.
