I find that I prefer F-Zero X, which is the first one in the series that I played extensively. After F-Zero X, this one was a disappointment to me. Sure, it looked pretty, but the balance was off and even the most intense moments felt more frustrating than fun. I'd love to see a new F-Zero for Wii U that adds more visual polish and gets the balance right. This game shows how much the franchise has to offer. It's criminal that Nintendo has lately ignored it.


"Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought." - John F. Kennedy on reality

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto

Personally, I'd like to see F-Zero get a new release on the 3DS... Not that a Wii U version wouldn't be pretty awesome in its own right, but the 3D effects used in Mariokart 7 were pretty cool, and I think a blazingly fast series like F-Zero would benefit from something like that.

How was Mario Kart 7? I haven't played a really great Mario Kart game since the N64 one. The Wii one was passable but it felt like it lacked the old "grit and challenge" of the N64 version.

It depends on how much (if any) online play you plan on doing.

The online mode is more fleshed out and has more options than the one featured in Mariokart Wii, but Mariokart 7's offline mode is filled with cheating dicks, even for a Mariokart game. Racing on the highest engine class will make you want to throw your recently-price-reduced handheld into a brick wall, unless you like getting fucked in the ass by 3 blue shells simultaneously, like what happened to me.

I, for one, prefer to avoid being sodomized by turtles.

Good review! Glad to see someone else loves this game as much as I do. And I'm pretty easily frustrated.

Reading this review made me wanna go get this game off ebay - which I may still well do. I'm just having that sensible moment where I consider whether I should keep expanding my backlog of game.
