In the future, high-speed hover vehicles zoom across tracks suspended high above cities in the fastest and most dangerous race ever: F-Zero. The F-Zero Grand Prix was cancelled years ago due to the number of people injured in the sport, but has been revived by popular demand. You'll compete in the Jack, Queen, and King cups, each with 6 courses. If you're good enough, you'll even unlock a couple more hidden cups. You can also take a time trial to see how quick you are, enter the Death Race to try and destroy all of your opponents, or even race against up to 3 of your friends! Join Captain Falcon, Dr. Stewart, and 28 other racing diehards for a super-fast race across the galaxy! Written by Axemblue

Fast and Friggin' Fun.

Most People who play video games don't know about Captain Falcon. He's one of the unsung heroes of the 90s, Which i don't really understand. all the games he starred in previous to 2002 were a lot of fun, and he seems like a cool guy. he races machines that go somewhere beyond 1000 MPH, he's a bounty hunter, and a fighter. so why does Captain falcon not get much attention as he should? So This is F-Zero X. As you might know, the main character is Captain Falcon, even though there are 29 other playable characters in the game. The whole idea is to race in the F-zero grand Prix for trophies. but thats only the racer. the player will race for new characters and tracks.

There's other modes aside from grand Prix. there's also Time Trial mode, which is a no-brainer if you're adding a mode to a racing game. The trick is to get the fastest time possible, and post it on Youtube to prove you're the fastest thing on the F-zero Grand Prix track.

Now there's another mode which is original and very fun. it's called Death race, in which the player races on a looping track that just goes straight. the objective is to use your machine's spinning technique to knock out the other racers, by destroying their machines or knocking them off the track. but don't get knocked off yourself, cause then it's game over. if you are the sole survivor out of 30 machines, your time and score is recorded and you can brag that you won a Death race.

The final Mode is VS Mode. You should know what that's for. VS mode means you can play multi-player, up to 4 racers. The only real drawback is you can't play multi-player for Grand Prix and Death Race.

This game is just straight up racing fun. The visuals are fun to look at, kinda like Jenna Jameson at work. The speed is just insane. if they made a sonic the hedgehog game for N64, it should have the F-zero X Engine. The music is the best thing about the game. it rocks harder than Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Rammstein, Disturbed and Dragonforce all mashed into one. i'm not Kidding you. it is so awesome to listen to the music while you're ripping up the course at 1200 MPH.
