Gameplay: Players experience the thrill of adrenaline rush in this game by playing in many stages and also as different pilots besides the four original pilots of the first F-Zero game. This game also includes five different race modes such as Time Trials, Grand Prix, Death Race, Vs. Battle and Practice. While playing in Grand Prix, players would choose difficulties, and if they successfully beat all of them with all three cups, they unlock the Master difficulty along with the X and Joker Cups which include the Rainbow Road from Mario Kart 64. This time when players get boost it is part of their vehicle's energy boost and no three S involved.
Music: The music from old games have been rearranged. Most of the themes have turned into punk rock style, still the most popular themes are the Big Blue and Mute City musical themes.
Characters: Captain Falcon, Samurai Goroh, Pico and Dr. Stewart return once again. Only this time there are 26 new racers that are introduced such as: Jody Summer, Mighty Gazelle, aspiring singer Kate Alen, Super Arrow, Mrs. Arrow and so on. There are also new villains such as Black Shadow, Bio Rex, Octoman, Zoda, The Skull, and the unforgettable Blood Falcon. Most of these pilots can have perfect speed, strength and grip. But most racers have poor speed, strength and grip.
Rantings. There are some problems I have with a few pilots for example. Blood Falcon's vehicle, the Blood Hawk has very poor grip, and so does Silver Nielsen, and many others with E grip. Black Shadow's vehicle, though very strong physically, it has very poor speed, which bothers me as well. The Death Race was a bother as well as sometimes you fell off the track.
Good Aspect. I was thrilled with excitement with the 3D graphics of the game, and the tracks looking like roller coaster rides. The vehicles looked awesome, and the races were incredibly fun. The guys at Nintendo did a great job with this, and it is a major improvement since the first F-Zero.
Overall: F-Zero X is one of my most favorite of the F-Zero series. I consider this game a cult classic, my final score is a 9.7 out of 10
