F-Zero 

 

While the Family Friendly Gaming E3 team was working their magic in Los Angeles I sat back and looked through some older games for a retro review. I came across F-Zero on the Gameboy Advance. This racing game was also re-released on the Nintendo 3DS. F-Zero is a historic game for one reason - it was one of those games known to cause epileptic seizures. An entire industry had to include warning labels about the possibility of a seizure due to their product. F-Zero has not sent me into a seizure, but it has given me headaches. Which is one of the reasons is receives a less than perfect score.

Many of the tracks in F-Zero look the same. Twists and turns are what differentiate them. The graphics are small, and there can be explosive results. If a player loses all of their vehicle energy then their vehicle will explode. And it is game over. This can be disappointing especially after racing multiple race tracks. The scaling and rotation in F-Zero were novel at the time. Now they just make the brain hurt.

The music does not do much for me. I am not opposed to it either though. I loved collecting energy from the green areas. It kept me alive on more than one race. The twists and turns in F-Zero are aggravating. As is how well the computer can perform them. I was on the easy settings as well.

The worst part about F-Zero is how hard it is. This game is like climbing a straight up rock face that is as smooth as glass. It takes the right tools and tons of patience. Your head will be throbbing from the camera problems way before you will experience success.

F-Zero is seen as one of the great games in the industry from the past. I don’t see it. In fact to me F-Zero is more of a menace than a good game. The whole epilepsy scandal is with us to this day. This game could be the cause of countless hours of pain in a variety of families. I am not a fanboy of F-Zero, and hope this franchise will retire into the history vaults of the video game industry.
