Yet another game that Japan decided not to release for reason. This game was perfectly great and is honestly the best racing game on the system.
F-Zero Climax features a bit better graphics than its previous GBA titles. It introduces several new cars. It also has an extensive story line, great music and a lot more.
The main addition to this game that wasn’t present in the earlier games is the map maker. You can create maps and give it to other players via linking. You can also play on those maps.
F-Zero Climax also has a lot of unlockables and secrets. It has overall great characters and is always worth a shot in playing on the system.
This patch translates the story line and control options. However, the story line is incomplete. Only the first 20 chapters have been translated.
2020 UPDATE: Now includes versions encoded as IPS and BPS patch files.

It doesn't crash, what more could you want?Reviewed By: Nintendo Maniac 64 on 09 Feb 2020
The existing translation patch that had been on RHDN for a decade now always crashed right after completing your first race and therefore was always a bit useless in practice.
Needless to say, this version doesn’t seem to crash at all, so that’s good!
The only “downgrade” vs the older existing translation is that the “Story Line” has only about half as many chapters translated, but from what I can tell this “Story Line” is merely just a summary of each episode in the anime “F-Zero - Falcon Densetsu”, so you might as well just watch said anime and not worry about the “Story Line” (especially since it isn’t like F-Zero GX where the story doubles as a mission mode and has actual gameplay - each “Story Line” chapter is literally just a bonus unlockable depicting a scrollable text box and a couple small images and nothing else as shown by in the screenshots)
Version 1.0 Recommended - Yes
