F-Zero GX is a futuristic racing video game for the Nintendo GameCube console. It is the fifth installment in the F-Zero series and the successor to F-Zero X. Developed by Sega's Amusement Vision department, it was released in Japan, Europe and North America in 2003. Its arcade counterpart, F-Zero AX, utilizes hardware conceived from a business alliance between Nintendo, Namco and Sega. F-Zero GX runs on an enhanced version of the engine that powered Super Monkey Ball. The game is considered and ranked as one of the best racers of its time and the greatest racer on the GameCube platform. A heavy emphasis is placed on track memorization and reflexes, which aids in completing the title. GX introduces a "story mode" element, where the player walks in the footsteps of Captain Falcon through nine chapters while completing various missions.

Trivia

  • F-Zero GX is the first F-Zero game developed by a third party (Sega).

  • It is also the first F-Zero game outside of Japan that features custom-built machines.
  • The max speed you can reach is 9999 km/h. However, upon speeding even further, the vehicle will come to a complete stop as consequence of the game resetting the velocimeter to 0 km/h due to it's inability to display any higher speed.
  • One of the producers for F-Zero GX, Toshihiro Nagoshi, is well known for being the creator of the 1994 hit arcade racing game, Daytona USA, and the Yakuza series. As of April 1st of 2012, he is currently the Chief Creative Officer at Sega of Japan.
