F-Zero: GP Legend is a Game Boy Advance video game. Not only was it a video game, it was also a TV show on Fox, and included the same characters that were in the GBA game, including classics such as Captain Falcon and Jody Summer.


F-Zero video games are known for including some of the most intense races in the video game industry, notably because of the speed that the futuristic vehicles climb up to. While the main objective is to go fast in the game, it's also suggested that you break and make sharp turns by pressing the B button (break) and L & R buttons (sharp turns/lean). While racing, you'll notice plenty of areas where there's a blue lining on the edge of the track, if you're going a nice speed, then drive over this; instead of following down below, you'll be launched into the air, though for the short time you're in the air you'll also have to maneuver your vehicle as well so that you'll be able to land back on the track. You'll also see boost tracks while racing that'll make you go even faster than before. Attacking other vehicles is also another tactic that you're able to perform. To violently ram into your opponent, tap either L or R button twice, and your vehicle will go either left or right respectively. If you manage to hit your opponent, he'll be damaged and you won't.

The game has received generally favorable reviews and has a Metacritic score of 77/100 based on 31 reviews. Doug Buel from The Tampa Tribune stated F-Zero: GP Legend's effort to unite Nintendo's racing franchise with Japanese animation "works pretty well", but highlighted the game's inability to show all of the racers on the screen at once as its worst feature. This reviewer also thought controlling the vehicles had "complete consistency" when attempting to lean, slide and power boost. Jeremy Parish, writing for, found the game to be boring and archaic if well-crafted.
