In the year 2560, the greatest racing competition is the F-ZERO championship. Pilots from across the galaxy risk their lives in a high-speed battle of turbo-charged hovercraft.
Taking full advantage of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System’s 'Mode 7™' effect, F-ZERO redefined racing games with its smooth, fast graphics and thrilling gameplay.
It also featured one of the most famous soundtracks in video games, and introduced players to the likes of Captain Falcon and Samurai Goroh.
I have fond memories of F-Zero on the SNES, being blown away by the speed and graphics of the game at the time. Revisiting it some 20+ years later, two things have struck me. First is the speed. It's still extremely quick. Second, is the difficulty. It's extremely tough. Weirdly, I don't remember F-Zero being THIS hard. It's one of those games, particularly later on, where you need to complete near-perfect run-throughs of the tracks to finish high enough. Some of the corners require the shoulder button banks to actually get round, and some of the jumps have to be measured to perfection to clear them. I've loved revisiting this game, and the difficulty was actually a very welcome surprise. Love this game!
If anyone owned a SNES, this was another must have title. Super fast racing action combined with a futuristic look and feel, you take these hovercraft type race "cars" around stunningly laid out tracks. Yeah the graphics have aged badly, but the gameplay is still fantastic and re-playable over and over again.
