    So I had some mates over on the weekend, and as we approached 2am on Sunday morning we'd bored of Smash Bros, Mario Strikers, and American Dad, so I decided to crack out F Zero GX... and it reminded me why it still to this day is my favourite game of all time.

    So has anyone else played it? I got it in 2003, back when it first came out, and though I haven't played it with a great deal of regularity in the last few years, its gameplay still intrigues and holds the attention, it's graphics are among the best on the GC, and the sensation of speed almost made my friend motion sick. And multiplayer kicks ass too (*overtakes friend on the last stretch by using up all boost to get 1st, jumps up in celebration only for friends to spear tackle to the ground. At 3am*)

    I love it. I go fast vroom vroom hax.

    Just wanted to share. Anyone else want to chip in?

    I played it around 2004. I remember the story mode took me a month or so to finally crack but getting all the parts for the custom mode was worth it. The level where you habve to take out all the other vehicles before the end is one of my favourite story mode missions :D .

    I loved this game. Super fast and insanely good graphics. The music could have been a bit better but other than that it is an A+ title for sure!

    I rented that for the kids a few years back and ended up re-renting it 3 or 4 times for myself, I would also sit up playing it until 2 or 3 in the morning knowing full well I had to be to work early.

    In other words, it was an awesome, awesome game!

    Awesome game. It was a bit too hard for me. I couldn't open all the tracks.

    loved the game, didn't to play as much as i wanted but iloved the custom care parts, my wife and i would play multiplayer all the time. and for some reason even though my custom parts were better, and i had played the game all the way through several times, she still beat me every race, adn i can't figure out why!!!

    F Zero GX was a hard game for me (though I did enjoy it quite a bit). Never beat story mode, got stuck on a level where you had a time limit to get out of a tunnel full of blast doors before the place exploded. I always exploded.

    Awesome game..except for the laughable story missions..but thankgod I beat them all. Especially the Grand Prix level (story 7 or something?) was crazy on the highest difficulty, along with the final one. And then in the end they pull some crazy Japanese stunt by claiming the world isn't real and the ghosts all created it, which I guess are meant to be the developers..WTF !!

    I wasn't very good at it competition-wise..and I hated how you could 'snake' in it..but apart from that..GREAT game!

    Very fun game to play against friends, but man it was way way way way WAY too hard on anything but the easiest difficulty against AI.

    It was meant to show that Cap Falcon can defeat the creators at their own game:D !

    I enjoyed it for what it was but story mode was hard as hell. By the time I got to chapter 7, I just couldn't do it anymore.

    I felt like this guy (just not as extreme lol):

    I played the Crap out of F Zero AX when the Gameworks I worked at had it. More recently my kids have been playing a lot of F Zero GX
