Dont worry, i think that this is the slipperiest f zero game i've ever played, so the other f zero games are not as slippery. the trick in this game it to keep tapping a at sharp turns. hope that helps ;)

I like this game, but I don't get how to use the air brakes properly. I'm using them the same way as I would in Wipeout, but it doesn't seem to be working well and I keep hitting the walls.

Keep tapping accelerate. Also, the boost meter is on the bottom right corner. Whenever you complete a lap, you get 1 boost. To use the boost, press l and r at the same time. Just read the manual that comes with the game...

You get one boost after every lap and I think its represented by a small S on the screen which you can have three at the most of at one time.

and yeah, this isn't a game where you just hold the accelerator down and steer. You really have to let go or tap the accelerator during turns.

I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing happens!

You guys weren't lying about the slippery thing. I blew up in my first two attempts on the first track on the easiest difficulty. I remember playing this game and thinking it easy, too, but it's hard to readjust to this.

I really can't get into this or the Mario Kart game...in fact, I kind of hate them :(

Tapping the accelerate button ain't too bad... but I can't get out of the habit of just stomping on the gas and whizzing it, like every other F-Zero game. This and MK are gonna take me a while to adjust to...

I have yet to figure out how to use the turbo. For a sixteen bit game, it actually looks better than the NES-like original SNES game.

Played only one race so far. Have been played the SNES one a good bit lately. This GBA one though, does not seem to turn very well from what I played of it. Kept slamming into walls. Once I figure it out I should really like it though.
The best Fzero by far is the Gamecube one though. That game was too overlooked in my opinion. I wish they would give us a new F-zero game...with Captain Falcon too.

I don't like it as much as the SNES one. The handling doesn't feel quite right to me, it just seems a little slippery. Maybe I need to practice more. I do find it odd that there is no Captain Falcon, Mute City et al.

I feel really bad. I haven't even gotten round to this one yet as I'm still replaying Zelda Minish Cap. I did play Mario Vs. Dk and enjoyed it up until I couldn't stay up anymore last night. LOL. Loving these games! Look forward to trying this one out soon, though ;) I remember the original F-Zero.

Never played this before today, and have to say i'm not feeling it. I probably just need to get the hang of it a bit more, but it's pretty "meh" to me right now.

I love F-zero. This one is really weird though. Usually I'm good at the games but I suck at this one. I just don't really like how you turn. It's pretty overly hard. I'm getting use to it and the game is fun but geez. This is hard. I love F-zero X. This one, I like. Nothing more. Nothing less.

I don't know the plot of F Zero too much but I have two questions.
One: What is this "Great Accident" they speak of?
Two: Wasn't this game made Non-Canon by Nintendo?
