F-ZERO

Saturday, April 16, 2016

After playing F-ZERO X the other day, I decided to go full retro and play its original SNES predecessor, F-ZERO. A true 1991 classic. I’ve been playing it quite a bit in the past few weeks.

After all these years, I think it’s still my favorite game of the franchise. The gameplay is fast, the tracks are unique, and the game is still exciting to play, 25 years later.

The game is incredibly challenging at higher difficulty levels, so replayability is pretty decent here. I remember beating the Knight and Queen Leagues on Master difficulty back then. But I was never able to beat the King League on Master, ever. I don’t play on a regular basis anymore, so it’s highly unlikely I’ll beat it anytime soon…
