F-Zero X (N64)
F-Zero X (AKA F-ZERO X, エフゼロ エックス Efu Zero Ekkusu in Japan) is a 3D space racing video game developed by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64 (N64) in 1998. But how is it different from other arcade style racing games in the market today?
Basically, the gameplay of F-Zero X is almost similar to other racing games like its predecessor F-Zero for the SNES. The difference is that, players race against 29 competitors on the race tracks featuring tunnels, corkscrews, loops, and hills. The hovercar, though, is geared with energy meter that works as health meter and speed boost. The health meter will show you the damage of your car while the speed boost shows the energy stored in your vehicle.
A total of 30 characters are available for you to choose from. Each character has a unique hovercar and different statistics for grip, boost, and body. Players can adjust acceleration and speed balance during each race. There are 4 levels to overcome including the novice, expert, standard, and the master level. For newbies, it would be best to choose the standard level.
The opponents are AI-controlled so they are pretty aggressive. The slowest and heaviest opponent can overtake the player with ease during the Master level. So better make sure you choose the fastest car before playing F-Zero X. It can be frustrating to watch other cars overtake you. But if you are aggressive enough on the race tracks, you can win.
If you’re looking for fun and exciting N64 game, this one is the perfect choice. For arcade style racing game enthusiasts this is the way to level up gaming experience. Plus, there are additional new features to try. No deadzone issues so you can score higher points.
F-Zero X has been ported to Nintendo 64 (this version), iQue Player, and Virtual Console.
