F Zero X (N64)
Advantages: Great speeds, well designed tracks and vehicles
Disadvantages: Multiplayer could be better
F Zero X is a futuristic racer for Nintendo's 64 console, bringing with it the blistering speeds and chaotic tracks that the series is known for. You start by picking a car (if they can be called cars) from a massive selection, with more to unlock, then are thrown into a lightning fast race against many other opponents.
It's hard to convey the sense of speed that this game gives you - suffice to say some of the tracks make you feel like your eyes are bleeding, you go that fast! The tracks are a mixture of standard race tracks, to tunnels, tubes, and jumps, each with different feels and tactics to use. There are GP modes, single races and multiplayer modes to get stuck into.
There's an excellent deathmatch mode, where you are pitted against every other vehicle and have to knock each other off or otherwise disable them. Unfortunately, this mode is only single player, but it's brilliant for passing the time.
Whilst not as much of a multiplayer experience as Mario Kart, I'd say this has a greater single player experience. It's more of a serious racer too, which may well appeal to you more.
Summary: A good alternative to Mario Kart if serious, futuristic racers are more your thing.
