I don't like this game because I'm not very good at it.

I know they released other F-Zero games for the GBA, but did they play more like the N64 version, because I can actually play that game without constantly slamming against the side of the track.

I look forward to ritually destroying my GBA copy of the game and then... downloading the ambassador version, because it's free!
