It is time for some Super Nintendo action! In my first post about this classic console, I present you one of my personal favorites:
F-Zero was one of the launch titles for the SNES and hit the shelves in Japan almost a year before you could even buy a SNES in the USA or Europe. For me it has always been a unique title, not least because of the futuristic story line and highspeed races.
At the beginning you chose one out of four vehicles and select a "league", which are basically different courses, each representing different level of difficulty.
So once you have started the race, you will notice that it can be quite a challenge to master the controls. Especially steering your racer is not so easy at speeds around 500 km/h with opponents crashing into you and sharp turns. If you crash into a bend or run over the curbs, it will cause damage to your vehicle. Fortunately you can heal your shield once you have finished the round.
Something I have always liked about F-Zero is the fact, that weapons are not included. This means you will have to win by only your driving skills and the AI seems always fair, even though it can be hard to defeat them and they are definitely guilty of reckless driving!
If you are a fan of classic console games, I can most warmly recommend you F-Zero. You will be impressed by the variety of level design, its fantastic music and excellent Mode-7 gfx. Your only aim will be to win the races.
