A perfect example of what was to come for F-Zero, the SNES, and Nintendo.
4 March 2009 | by The_Light_TritonSee all my reviews

F-zero is awesome. This was the perfect game to release for SNES in 1990 because it showed what the SNES could do compared to the Sega Genesis. It had 32,000 colors and 16 bit graphics. the colors were bright, vibrant, and beautiful. the music and audio was downright beautiful. Nintendo didn't lie about anything they made for the SNES, and because of the SNES, Nintendo prevailed in the 16-bit wars.

It's the year 2560 and the world has changed. There are many forms of entertainment, but the greatest spectacle of all is F-zero racing, where the racing machines go upwards of 800 kph. while there are several racers, there's only 4 in everyone's mind - Captain falcon, the pilot of the Blue falcon, Dr. Stewart, the pilot in the Golden fox, Pico, the alien pilot of the wild goose, and Samurai Goroh, the pilot of the fire stongray. all of them race on 15 different courses to win the F-zero cup and tons and tons of money, all to entertain the richest men of the world.

I love this game. if i could recommend a good racing game, i'd recommend this one. however, it only suffers one major drawback that the modern video game Bioshock does...No Multiplayer.

9/10
