F-Zero: Maximum Velocity lets you hop into the seat of a super-charged, super-fast hi-tech rocket race car of the future. You pick a vehicle, hit the tracks and roar past the competition.

F-Zero: Maximum Velocity Warm-Up

Slip this beauty into your Game Boy Advance and you'll be enjoying the view in no time. The graphics for the cars are really cool. When you corner, the fins bend, the vehicle tilts and you really get a sense of sliding around the corner at high speeds. The race tracks are fairly bland and some of the backgrounds are dull but they're moving so fast you don't notice much.

F-Zero: Maximum Velocity Turbo Boost!

The tunes are decent and there are rocket-engine roars and turbo powered whines as you slam the accelerator. And there are great crash and bash sounds from thumping the competition into the walls. The music doesn't have the big name punch of Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX but it has some good high-speed beats that'll keep you moving.


F-Zero: Maximum Velocity Full Speed!

The action is just whack! It's totally simple racing arcade all the way. Each of the vehicles has stats - how much pounding it can take, it's high speed, how well it corners and the stats matter bigtime. You really have to get to know your vehicle or else you're gonna get your butt kicked.


F-Zero: Maximum Velocity Engine Trouble

There is one major difference between F-Zero: Maximum Velocity and the old-school F-Zero - blast turns. If you tap your accelerator when you round a corner you get way better handling. By using blast turns even the clumsiest vehicles can corner like crazy. It feels like a patch to make up for some poor handling issues. Make sure you master it or you'll eat every corner.


F-Zero: Maximum Velocity Finish Line

F-Zero: Maximum Velocity is a racer loaded with arcade action and some seriously tricky levels. It'll keep you busy with tons of levels, bonus cars and major action. Check it out.


How Hard Is F-Zero: Maximum Velocity?

It'll take about an hour to learn the controls and it's still pretty tough.
