Since I'm to lazy to make my own, I'll follow donkeyboy's review system.

Graphics - 9.5/10
Although a few models aren't perfect, the game's graphics are great, and even when your flying through the air at 2500km/h, the engine never drops a frame.   Everything in this game is in character, the environment this game creates is amazing.

Sound - 10/10
The music in this game is phenomenal.  It fits the game perfectly.  Without it, the game would not be the same.  The sound effects are great too, they don't distract you from the actual game.

Gameplay - 9.5/10
This is where it really shows that Sega developed this.  The game has a very arcade feel to it, which is a very good thing.  This game is unbelievably fun.  The feeling of speed is great, and this game really draws you in.  This game literally gives you an adrenaline rush it's so insane.  Blasting through the tracks at 1500km/hr, making sharp turns and avoiding the other 29 racers makes for an amazing experience.  The tracks are very well done, and force you to make strategies for each track in order to win.  There are plenty of option to keep you busy, and you can even build your own ship.  There is even a story mode, which I haven't touched on much, but so far, it looks fine.  The ship selection is good, theres so many that you're bound to find one that fits your style.  The gameplay is perfect.  Then why the 9.5/10?  It's so fucking hard.

Replay - 9.5/10
While Mario Kart single player gets boring after you've unlocked everything, you'll keep coming back to F-Zero to get that adrenaline rush.  There's so many modes, and you can always improve your time trials times, and it's fun to do so.  Even better is it's multiplayer mode.  The games hardness really adds to this too.  You have to work hard to beat this game.  This game pretty much never gets old.

X-Facter - 9.9/10
This game is insane.  There's no other game that can touch it, not Wipeout; nothing.  This is by far the best and most fun racing game I have ever played.  The only con here is sometimes it gets a little frustrating, but that's not all bad, it keeps you playing and coming back.

Final Score (not an average) - 9.7/10
If you have a GameCube, and you don't have this game, get it now.
