Top 10 Machines in F-Zero GXI was feeling nostalgic lol. So here's a list of the best machines in F-Zero GX.
This machine is by FAR the most reliable (and if you're used to it, easy on top of that) machine to smoke everyone on any grand prix map, and on most time attacks as well. Its control/stability is probably the best in the game, and can handle anything with its amazing quick turn.
Insane top speed an speed retention, once you get a lead in this beast game over.
One of the best top speeds, very good acceleration for it's weight, best booster in the game, excellent snaking abilities, heaviest machine which brings the best body as well. The handling isn't the best around but if you learn to control it, you will become unstoppable.
One of the few non-custom machines that can consistently beat staff ghosts.
Fast, and has all-around great stats, aside from handling.
Slow top speed, and very light, but HOLY CRAP this machine is like a speeding bullet with its boost.
Also it looks amazing, and the fact that one engine is blue while the other is red (and the fact that they switch their colors when you boost) is a nice aesthetic touch.
The Sonic Phantom is almost the same as Death Anchor but Sonic Phantom is slightly better in my opinion. Both have great top speed and booster. The major difference is the handling. Death Anchor feels unstable at times while Sonic Phantom is easier to control and is more stable for the most part.
I gotta put Black Bull at 5th. I love the machine, and would give it a higher ranking, but I have a really difficult time controlling it. Still, that speed and durability are insane.
I'd say this machine feels the most "natural" out of every machine in the game, where you can turn and slide around with a gentle acceleration without radical changes in speed. From what I can tell, this machine is a better Fire Stingray in every way other than its weight. It's faster, has a better boost, is more stable, and loses less speed on turns.
Terrible body, turning could be better, but... Good top speed. Boost speed is good. Deceleration is fine. Acceleration is good enough.
Great top speed (unboosted), but wow, what an atrocious acceleration curve that is. Stability seems good, but once it does lose stability it seems to lose it completely, hurtling out of control. Boosts seem to be a bit weak. In courses with mostly straightaways, this machine shines.
Also, extra points for its cool design (I don't give a turd if it's pink).
Handles like a charm, decent non-boost speed, average boost, and it's pretty heavy. A good choice in any track and performs better than most machines.
Overall great machine, it has a good grip and is easy to control. Behaves well with the graph console performance setting and is accurate to what you set it to.
Well-balanced (perhaps the most so in the game), but outclassed in most areas by several vehicles. Can't see much of a difference between it and the Blue Falcon. Overall it seems that it trades in some stability in return for slightly more speed. I would probably put it right at 11th, ahead of Mighty Typhoon and Blue Falcon.
The cool thing about this machine is that its wing blades fan out whenever you boost.
One of the best balanced machines. Good stability, decent armour, and a good amount of speed. Helped me win most of the Master cups.
I also like to think of Phoenix as a Captain Falcon of the future.
Good Allrounder, seems to never loose stability, which makes it quite easy to use.
A bit slippery in the turns but great solid body and insanely fast boost
