FAST rmx is an expanded re-release of anti gravity racing game Fast Racing Neo, which was a Wii U launch title. Normally that sentence would ring alarm bells but this game gets a lot right and very little wrong. Like many games that require intense concentration it can induce a trance like state when you are in the zone, and as the name implies it’s very fast. I have heard people compare this game to F-Zero, and while that is definitely a fair comparison I see it more as the lovechild of Wipeout and Ikaruga. The Wipeout comparison is easily understood but the mechanic that gives this series it’s edge is changing your vehicle ‘phase’on the fly in order to hit colour coded boost zones. It utterly rocks and is an underrated gem.
