Well I've never really played the N64 or gamecube versions so I don't know what to expect; but the SNES and GBA versions are the only 2D racers that I still play; others lot thier appeal almost instantly as soon as the likes of Virtua Racing, Daytona and Ridge Racer came along.
That was, by far, the most incredible fan-made trailer i've ever seen!
I still don't understand why Nintendo didn't make f-zero for DS and Wii
I think the 3D effects will be perfect for this game, and I really hope for a 3DS version.
That's a must buy game!
