The graphics are colorful and vibrant, almost to the point of being gaudy. Although the tracks are detailed, they are also noticeably flat and all tend to look the same. There are some 2D structures in the background to attempt to compensate for this, but in general there's not much eye candy. You can select from four vehicles, each with their own handling and speed characteristics. As you glide around the tracks, you can collect power-ups, boost through straight-aways, and jump small ramps. A one-player game only, the object is to compete in a series of events in an attempt to gain the number one ranking. The early races are surprisingly challenging. Unfortunately, F-Zero has not held up well over the years, especially since the release Mario Kart, which blows it away. It's too polished to get a failing grade, but few players will argue that F-Zero has not aged well.
