Time for a update
F zero X/64
Atari 2600 what console do you think its on
J.J & Jeff (no I have never herd of it ether)F-Zero X offers the choice of either preserving the vehicles' energy meter, or using it to boost ahead of the competition. After selecting a character, players may choose the color of the vehicle and adjust their machine's performance between maximum acceleration and maximum top speed. Dash plates are located at various points around the track. When any vehicle goes over one of these plates, a speed boost is acquired that doesn't cost any energy. There are also special driving techniques such as the 'Railslide' that can break the game's normal physics.
F-Zero X includes five different modes. In Grand Prix, race against twenty-nine other opponents through the tracks of a Grand Prix tour. The player needs to select a difficulty level: Novice, Standard, Expert or Master. The higher the difficulty level, the tougher the opponents and less spare machines. A "spare machine" is similar to an extra life. In this game's case if the player starts over or changes settings after the game is paused, or if the machine loses all its energy, or falls off the track, that costs one spare machine each. When there are no spare machines left, the selection to start the track over or change settings while the game is paused is disabled. After the final course is completed, the Final Results in Grand Prix screen will appear. If ranked first, an "X" mark is rewarded. If ranked 2nd or 3rd, the player will have to try again. If ranked 4th or lower, there will be a daytime scene with the player's vehicle racing around a track.
VS Battle is a Multiplayer mode where two to four players can play simultaneously. Four machines will race in all the multi-player modes, out of the four, those not used by players will be operated by the computer. If a player ends up retiring before the other players, that person will enter VS Slot. A slot machine will appear. If three pictures are matched, its then possible make another player's machine lose all or half of its energy (depending on which pictures matched). If three "X" marks appear, the leading machine will lose all its energy. If three skulls appear all machines will lose their energy. In VS Handicap its possible to adjust the handicap option to "+1" or "+2", boost power will not consume as much energy or boost power will consume even less energy respectively that will give the slower machine an advantage.
Time Attack lets the player choose a track and complete it in the shortest time possible. Times that are low enough will unlock the hidden recorded races by the Staff Ghosts. The Staff Ghosts, have very fast times set by the game's development team, for the player to an extra challenge. There are no rewards for beating them, but a red 'X' appears next to the track on the course selection screen to show the ghost has been defeated. Practice mode allows the player to practice any track with 29 opponents.
In Death Race the player objective is to annihilate the 29 other racers as speedily as possible, as may be inferred by the name. There is only one course, which is on a perpetual straightaway and has no difficulty level. There is no limit to the number of laps, boost can be used right away, and best times will be saved to memory. A star is earned for each rival machine that's actually destroyed. Stars give you a bit of energy. The player won't get a star if a rival machine crashes into another. When the number of remaining rival machines is zero, the game is over. If the player's Energy Meter reaches 0, or if he or she fall off the track, the player will need to start the whole race all over.
Choose either J.J. or Jeff to play, then run/jump/kick/spray your way through 8 levels. A life bar labeled “Vitality” depletes as you are injured. Eating food hidden in each level will replenish this meter. Money found can be used to play a slot machine game for items. The slot machine is one of several hidden rooms found in each level. Enemies are defeated in two main ways, kicking them, and spraying them with a can of spray paint. (In the Japanese version, the spray can was originally Kato and Ken's own flatulence.) Kicking random things can produce money, food, and other items. Extra lives are obtained at 70,000, 150,000, 300,000 and 500,000 points.Whilst this game might have been forgiven at the time of release for its clunky gameplay and tired level design these days it is really showing its age. It plays much like Sega's Wonderboy (the first one) or the Adventure Island games but without the preciseness and fluency that those games have. It is really annoying how the player skids and keeps moving when you just want to stop! Some of the jumps featured in this game are very difficult to pull off, as a game mechanic this is not much fun.
F-Zero X is worth downloadin if you want a good fourplayer and a good long term game (wont be buyin have the cart someware and dont want to restart)
Death race is most fun if on your own at the start of the race do a 180 and see how long you last
I checked a review of the other and it got 2 out of five so I dont think ill bother with it
