What do these ratings mean?

Looking for a great racing game for the Gamecube, one that is fast, stylish in a sort-of off beat way and that is brutal? Then is is the game for you!

Welcome to F-Zero GX, the game with a certain style and charm that graces the Nintendo system, from the characters, their machines and the tracks.

To start off, the graphics are absolutely stunning; high framerate that rarely drops, amazing polygon count with no noticable "jaggies" and an insane sense of speed. To only see a screenshot doesn't do the game justice. Seeing it in action is the best way to take notice of the fantastic art direction. The graphics is most noticable on the tracks themselves, and their backgrounds. Even though 1 or 2 may not be as good as some of the others, they are all great.

The sound is pretty good too, from the voiceovers of the racers to the offbeat music that truely fits the game. Each song for each track feels like it belongs there. The sounds the machines make, zooming at 1500km/h sounds amazing and that includes when they collide with eachother and slam an opponent off the track.

The gameplay is arguably it's strongest area, with the amazing track design, the sheer depth of the machine creator and the amazing control that the user is given. The tracks and the smart A.I. lead to a challenging experience. To say that it is challenging, it's only for the people who can handle the learning curve, especially the Story Mode, which is harder in some parts then others. Luckily, with practice, some may get through the tough exterior and see the amazing racing game within.
Replayability is all about if the player can handle the challenge, and how badly they want to see the ending of the Story Mode

In the end, it's a hard racing game but for the people who invest their time, they will find that this is one of the best racing experiences on the Gamecube.
