F-Zero

released on Nov 21, 1990

F-Zero is set in the year 2560, when humanity's multiple encounters with alien life forms had resulted in the expansion of Earth's social framework. This led to commercial, technological and cultural interchanges between planets. The multi-billionaires who earned their wealth through intergalactic trade were mainly satisfied with their lifestyles, although most coveted more entertainment in their lives. This resulted in a new entertainment based on the Formula One races to be founded with vehicles that could hover one foot above the track. These Grand Prix races were soon named "F-Zero" after a rise in popularity of the races. The game introduced the first set of F-Zero racers: Captain Falcon, Dr. Stewart, Pico, and Samurai Goroh.

Captain Falcon is gasoline, but this game is physical pain incarnate.


This game is absolutely brutal and you will get tired of the sound effects quickly.

Of SNES games this one has aged incredibly poorly, like most racing games from this era. It doesn't even have multiplayer.


F-Zero is a game where you race and that's basically all there is to it. It is fun, the controls are good (unless you have to drift, in which it becomes ass), and the music is nice but honestly, this game is more like a tech demo or an arcade game and because of that, i don't feel like giving it a score. You don't really "beat" this game like you would in Mario Kart, there's no trophies or anything. In fact, much like an arcade game, this game is really more about the best score than actually, you know, beating it.
Honestly, once you've done one Grand Prix, you've done them all.

It does suck that there's no multiplayer mode tho.


it's fun but im never gonna finish it lmao
