I know, it's not exactly Star Fox, but I've always associated F-Zero as a sister franchise to Star Fox, as they keep giving nods to each other.  (Both series have a Golden Fox :fox:, a Blue Falcon :falco:, James McCloud and Octoman, and F-Zero has an oblique reference to James's friend O'Donnell. :P)  But if you happen not to be interested in the F-Zero series, that's okay too. :cool:

I have F-Zero X for the VC.

I think most of the series is Japan only.

Grand Prix, Grand Prix 2 and Climax are Japan-only.  All the others were released in North America too.  But F-Zero AX was extremely scarce, even then.

I really liked the SNES version quite a bit! :D.  I haven't played any others, except for Fzero GX on the gamecube.

Climax was a followup to GP Legend, but now both games have since been declared noncanon along with the anime.  The chronologically last game in the series is Maximum Velocity, as its drivers are a generation after the original set of drivers in SNES, X and GX (though GX was released after Maximum Velocity).

SNES and Maximum Velocity are my two favorites. :D

More people should play Maximum Velocity.  It was a true sequel to SNES/X/GX (taking place a generation later), and quite faithfully follows the sensations of the SNES version, though all the tracks, cars and drivers are different.  Had some decent music too.

The only F-Zero I played was GX for the Gamecube. It was alright, until I traded it in.

My vote goes to F-Zero X, although ive played most of them, ive spent the majority of my time playing the N64 one, so that kinda sticks in my mind more than the others

GX, hands down. I've played most of the games in the series (save for the Japan only titles), and GX is the definitive F-Zero experience. Great music variety, great visuals, great speed, and DICKTONS of shit to do. Between the 3 or 4 levels of difficulty on story mode, the 4 or 5 difficulties on the 4 or 5 standard race modes, custom model parts, AX characters, and special cutscenes, this game basically keeps you going forever. I've had since 2003 or 2004, and I STILL haven't unlocked everything yet.

GP Legend gets my second vote, because I enjoyed how it brought a pretty decent storyline to the franchise. I really wish it's sequel title got a US release... :

Hey, Dermot, curious question.

Why do you like Maximum Velocity so well? To me it always struck me as the black sheep of the series, because of the throwback to SNES styled playing (I think) and the fact there are NO returning characters.

Honestly, I don't even mind anything BUT the characters, the fact that noone returns from any of the previous games is a real turn off for me.

But is not there the Blue Falcon? O_o

I mean, that blue ship looks so similar...

And the SNES gameplay was C00L. Not

sure about the 3D gameplay, however,

I need to play F-Zero '64' at least.

I've only F-Zero X and GX, but I enjoyed GX more! It just had the greatest sense of speed in any racing game I've played!

Just to mention it, I always though that Wipeout gave a more epic experience.  They captured the sense of speed and weaponry better for me.

There are more than the initial four cars, but you have to unlock them through achievements.  (Check GameFAQs for more on this.)  You can unlock the Blue Falcon Mk II and the Stingray (both are nods to the SNES cars), along with other awesome cars.  And unlockable Fire Field and Silence tracks are in the game.  Anyway, there are no returning characters because it's a generation later.

As for why I like it?  I like its SNES feel, I like its music (it has one of the original SNES composers on board), I like some of its tracks, I like the way some of the cars look, I just like the experience overall.  I've sequenced two Maximum Velocity MIDIs (Empyrean Colony and Crater Land).
