"Nintendo Winter 2002" promotional booklet:

    In the present-day world, racing can be a high-adrenaline, high-speed rush...

    Just imagine racing in the future, navigating a hover-track with long straight-aways, gravity-defying loops, and hairpin turns, all the while hurtling down the track at speeds of over 700 mph! That's what would-be pilots will face in F-Zero for Nintendo GameCube, the latest installment of the F-Zero franchise. Your reflexes will have to be honed to the ragged edge, because in the world of F-Zero, there are no awards for second place.

    Hurtle through space at mind-boggling speeds as Captain Falcon and the galaxy's best pilots race for glory!



    Nintendo and SEGA -- both accomplished masters of high-speed fun -- have collaborated to create the fastest, most visually stunning racing game ever. F-Zero GX is the race to end all races, as fearless pilots risk everything to claim the title of the top speedster in the universe.

    Features

  • Prepare to race for the long haul with 20 sprawling courses and more than 30 pilots to choose from.
  • Compete in races that span many familiar F-Zero modes, like Grand Prix, Time Attack and Versus. A new Story mode allows you to follow Captain Falcon as he races through missions and completes a wide array of challenges.
  • Race a home-built, custom machine in the arcade or bring your Memory Card and transfer additional pilots and all kinds of custom parts from the arcade version to the Nintendo GameCube.
  • Use the points you win in races to buy parts and build your own speeder in Custom mode. Connect with the arcade version and transfer enough parts to make up to 8,000 unique racing combinations.

    In Grand Prix mode, you select from four cups of five races each. Each course pits you against 29 opponents in a three-lap race. Points are tallied at the end of a cup circuit to determine the winner. Vs. Battle allows two, three or four players to compete in a split-screen race on any unlocked course with any unlocked machines. Even when playing with four players, the action blazes by without a hitch.

    Choose Time Attack mode to pit yourself against the best time and top speed for each course. If you save your ghost data to a Memory Card, you can race against a transparent re-enactment of your best run.

    Bottom Line

    F-Zero GX is the ultimate racer for speed freaks. A galaxy's worth of unlockable content provides ample replay value. Exclusively available for Nintendo GameCube, F-Zero GX is any speed demon's dream co
