F-Zero GX (GCN / GameCube)

Game Profile

Join Captain Falcon and a host of drivers from around the galaxy in this, the return of F-Zero.

Along with the hallmark elements of the previous titles (high speed racing through futuristic tracks that range from difficult to down right crazy, against up to 29 different racers at any one time), GX introduces a new story mode which details the backstory of each driver and creates a new sense of importance to each race.

Depending on your result through the 15 tracks, you'll receive prize money which can go towards the purchase of new parts to increase your power and speed of your racer. No weapons are used during each race, so it will take skill to get to the top.

Also included are a 4 player split-screen mode, the option of full customization the look of your vehicle, plus plenty of unlockable extras to find.

F-Zero is the name of the game, but will it also be the score?

In 2003 Nintendo’s premier racing series returned in superb style on the GameCube: F-Zero GX came out of the gate lightning fast, brutally hard and, rather oddly, developed by Sega. Made by Sega studio Amusement Vision, it marked the company’s first...

Colours. Music. The Captain. Speed. Very, very fast speed. Those are the things that race to my mind when anyone mentions "F-Zero". I am also quite certain my eyes widen and sparkle a bit. Is it just a series of games? Not to me. Off to the starting grid… Knight League:...

"F-Zero is really something special to me"

Barely an E3 or Nintendo Direct goes by without someone in the Nintendo Life team muttering that maybe, against all odds, F-Zero will return. It's now been over ten years since F-Zero Climax, a thoroughly disappointing Game Boy Advance entry that's ignored by many, arrived in stores. It was an inglorious...

In a turn of events that shouldn't surprise any followers of Nintendo, an anonymous source of reasonable repute has recently been quoted as stating that a big-name HD remaster is on the way to Wii U in 2015.

SEGA and Nintendo made what is perhaps the BEST iteration in the F-Zero series. The game has a strong pedigree, with Miyamoto and Toshihiro Nagoshi serving as co-producers of F-Zero GX. The game also used the Super Monkey Ball engine, hence being developed by Amusement Vision (one of Sega's internal studios). We need a new F-Zero game again...
