One of only two games that made up the Japanese launch, F-Zero wowed the gaming press when it first appeared with its stunning graphics and futuristic theme.
The game was one of the first to use the Super Famicom's Mode 7 graphics mode, wher a 2D image is twisted to give a 3D like effect, which can then be scaled and rotated, and allowing other parts of the track to appear, such as the other half of hair pins.
Despite its fast paced action, and stiff challenge, the game was one player only, which did limit its long term playability.
