 Gamer's Logik 4.0 - F-Zero GX Review
As was mentioned before, Sega developer Amusement Vision worked hand in hand with Nintendo to create this title and they really did an excellent job at keeping the feel of the franchise while bringing new elements to the series, refining others, and, in general, making F-Zero GX the premier futuristic racing game to date.

You see; the level designers at Amusement Vision must have taken a course in masochism, for they lovingly tease you with the stupidly easy beginner mode and pull you in further with the reasonably taxing advanced mode.
Beginner and advanced mode show you a brief example of the obscenely high quality of level design on offer throughout the game, while an almost impossible level of skill and patience is required to reach the very final stages.
Cheekily, Amusement Vision have placed an extra 3 special stages at the end of each difficulty level, if you finish them without losing a SINGLE life.

Thankfully, Amusement Vision headed by Toshihiro Nagoshi, the same man who designed the original arcade game while working for AM2, has redeemed Sega by delivering a conversion that is above and beyond the quality of the arcade game to fans who would have been, dare I say, content with a perfect arcade-to-home port.

Amusement Vision did an excellent job in crafting the Story Mode.
Not only does it keep the gamer immersed in the story itself, but players do not ask themselves, “Why am I racing without a purpose?” AV didn’t stop there, they made sure to add beautiful FMV sequences to the mix in order to link tracks to the challenges themselves.

 F-Zero GX - GameCube Review
Developed by Amusement Vision, the same folks who brought the two Super Monkey Ball games to the GameCube, the game promised to take everything people loved about F-Zero and make it bigger and better: more machines, more characters, crazier tracks, and even more speed.
Granted, this is not entirely surprising given the borderline sadistic levels that Amusement Vision was able to devise for the Super Monkey Ball games.
Another thing that Amusement Vision pulled off brilliantly was the feel of speed in the game.

There are obstacles of all kinds that can stand between the monkey ball and the goal, and it seems obvious that Amusement Vision had fun with some of the stage designs.

Someone at Amusement Vision is badly stunted in the anal phase of Freudian development.
For you see, Super Monkey Ball is a game where you must roll your monkey from the start of each level to the goal by tilting the landscape via the thumbstick of your control pad.
Here's hoping Amusement Vision knows when to move on and begins a new project instead of staying stuck and trying to squeeze out a Monkey Ball 3.

During E3, Sega announced that one of its internal development studios, Amusement Vision, was porting the arcade game Virtua Striker 3 to the GameCube.
Although a very popular game in Japan, Amusement Vision’s attempt to introduce Virtua Striker 2 to the US ended up being a blocked shot.
While your average arcade-based sports game (ala NFL Blitz or NBA Jam) is normally worthy of a few party sessions, Virtua Striker 2 for Dreamcast was a bona fide grass stain.
