F-Zero

Recommended Posts

After doing a quick search and only finding a single mention of F-Zero GX in this subforum, I figured it was my duty to make this thread.

 

F-Zero: A pretty solid retro soundtrack, Ross has mentioned in a previous video chat he's played a little bit of this game and loved the Mute City track. The Big Blue track is also great. This game has my favorite renditions of Port Town and Fire Field.

F-Zero X: A very rocking soundtrack for a very rocking game. Really, only one track truly speaks to me from F-Zero X, as heretical as that may sound. That song is Dream Chaser. That being said, the other tracks hold their own and are great.

F-Zero GX: Here we go. While F-Zero X has a great soundtrack, there's not too much variation. F-Zero GX's soundtrack - the way I see it - has a song for everyone. And they're generally really good. I should mention that the songs for the race tracks in this game have two stages - one for the first two laps and one for the final lap.

F-Zero GP Legend: A tie-in to the F-Zero anime of the same title (The F-Zero anime is also referred to as F-Zero: Falcon Densetsu). While I haven't played much of this game, it does have some enjoyable songs. The game utilizes the SNES style of gameplay.

F-Zero Climax: Released only in Japan, I haven't even had a chance to play this game. A sort of continuation of GP Legend, I believe this game doesn't have actual story mode missions so it doesn't do much to advance the plot.

Special Mentions

 

F-Zero Falcon Densetsu/F-Zero: GP Legend aka the F-Zero anime. Unfortunately, the show's official soundtrack was never released. There are people on YouTube who have attempted to rip them from the show, although those rips contain various sound effects that play during the episode and aren't of the highest quality. The channel "Superdude1306" attempted to rip all of the tracks from the show, so if you're interested, check out that channel. You CAN find the opening and ending songs easily enough, though. They contain lyrics.

 

F-Zero Fan Arrangements: With how good the quality is of the original songs, it'd be almost criminal to not mention fan covers. I don't have much to say on these, so I'll just post a few I like.

I friggin love F-Zero and the soundtrack is EPIC if you like Metal. I have only played most of the N64 version and the early missions of GX because it is so GODDAMN hard. Like seriously I don't have the best track record with hard games but it's tough as nails. I have nothing but respect for people who have completed it. For some reason the N64 one remains the most enjoyable for me and my favorite entry in the franchise. It is PURE JOY to play emulated ay 1080p with a crapton of Anti Aliasing.
