The third of the SNES triumvirate. Smash-hit or a bust? It is actually both. It is a wonderful game and the best since Mega Man 3, but the flip side to that coin was the sales floundered. But, sales problems aside, this game flies high in gameplay and is filled with originality and complexity, making this a wonderful game to play.

Do you really need me to talk about the play control? It's the same as in MMX2, which is to say, pretty much perfect? Good. On the whole, this is a rather fun game, complete with typical Mega Man fare, and the gameplay that made Mega Man GREAT!!!. Any Mega Man Fan (or any Action Gamer or any gamer at all) GET THIS GAME!!! Well, OK, so I'm exagerrating a bit.....Still, get this one. It's kinda rare though.

Although I still prefer the old NES Mega Man games and the more traditional look of the SNES MM7 as well, but even so, X3 is not a game to take lightly. This game is all about timed jumps, moving platforms, earning power-ups and all the things that made the classic MM's so great. The control couldn't be more perfect, the graphics and music are great, plus all the different powers Mega Man accumulates do spice things up a bit. MM X3 is the game MM X should have been from the start.

32-bits opvolger van een hele reeks beroemde platform shoot 'em ups met de MegaMan robots in de hoofdrol. Graphics en bediening zijn sterk verbeterd, er zijn nieuwe eindbazen maar in grote lijnen is het spel toch hetzelfde gebleven.

Mega Man X3 is a great little game that requires all kind of manual dexterity, thinking and a great deal of patience. On its own, it's a real winner. Unfortunately it's different enough for the first baker's dozen of Mega Man games to set it apart. Still, its a good game and if you've already played the rest, you owe it to yourself to play this one as well.

Doch Capcoms neueste Mega-Man-Episode überzeugt nicht nur aufgrund der gelungenen technischen Präsentation, auch die hohe Spielbareit macht das Game interessant. SNES-User, die Spiele dieser Art nicht verabscheuen und vor einem hohen Schwierigkeitsgrad nicht zurückschrecken, sei das neueste Abenteuer von Capcoms niedlichen Weltenretter wärmstens ans Herz gelegt.

The plot is a bit of a weak point in Mega Man X 3. The introduction is rather weak, just showing two or three planes being blown up. Then, you're just thrown into the action. This is not too big of a deal though, as you can just concentrate on the action within the game, and not worry about the story.

Mega Man X3 covers extremely familiar territory, but the game still manages to provide surprises and some clever elements in the gameplay and graphics. It may be routine for experienced players, but anyone who hasn't played a 16-bit game in this series will discover Mega magic.

Die schruppenden Rock-Gitarren passen zur Roboter-Action, zum Ohrwurm fehlen jedoch eingängige Soli-Melodien. Im Vergleich zu den Vorgängern wirkt das Levelsdesign mit seinen unzähligen Winkeln und Geheimgängen ausgeklügelter, die vielen Energie-Extras machen den Sieg jedoch einfacher.

I've always been a big fan of the Megaman X series, but I'm very indecisive about this third game. Everything that made the first two games great has been kept in 3; however, I would like to see some change. Even though I like the game the way it is, how about trying something new that would separate it from the prequels? I guess, if it's not broken, why fix it? With the exception of a few minor changes, MMX3 is a close duplicate to MMX2.

It's funny how a last-minute and brutal twist to the difficulty can ruin so many things. Play this one for the first 12 levels only. Unless you hate yourself.

Kennt Ihr den? Warum nannten die Designer die neue Mega Man Ballerei X3? - Logo: Weil es sich um die x-te Auflage des Stehaufmännchens handelt, Har Har, har! Im Ernst: Ich empfinde es schon als eine kleine Frechheit, daß Capcom dieses ursprüngliche 16-Bit Produkt grafisch nahezu unverändert rüberzog. Zeichentrickfilme waren zudem schon auf dem Mega CD II ein einfallsloses Mittel, um einen Silberling zu füllen. Es ärgert mich sowieso, daß Capcom sich schlichtweg weigert. der Mega Man-Serie etwas mehr Innovation zukommenzulassen. Ok, Ihr dürft neuerdings in bereits gemeisterten Levels anhand eines Radarschirms nach verbliebenen Items schnüffeln oder durch den anwählbare Zero noch effektiver Mavericks aufmischen. doch Überraschungserlebnisse oder Aha-Erlebnisse bleibt uns Capcom schon seit längerem schuldig. Der Firma dürfte das aber schnuppe sein, so lange die Endverbraucher weiterhin brav kaufen.

Mega Man X3 isn't a terrible game as a standalone title, but by comparison to what came before it, the game seems to fall short. The shortcomings are even more apparent in this supposed "port". Maybe it's the grittier graphical style and the subpar soundtrack, or maybe it's the blisters on my thumbs talking. X3 isn't a step forward in the series, but it's not necessarily a step backward either. It's more like Capcom decided to take a breather on a park bench rather than finish the race. It's one of the least accessible games of the series, both from a skill perspective and from a literal perspective (it had the lowest print run of the original trilogy, and only recently has it become available on the Virtual Console). Mega Man X3 is only for those who have a serious affection for the series, but casual players would be better off with a different entry point.

Zusammenfassend hinterläßt Mega Man einen ziemlich öden Nachgeschmack, Capcom hätte schon beim letzten 16-Bit-Teil etwas innovativer arbeiten können. Mega Mans Einstieg ins Next Generation-Zeitalter derart billig zu inszenieren, während andere Firmen ihren Vorzeige-Charakteren bombastische Auftritte verschaffen, läßt auf zunehmende Lethargie in der Entwicklerabteilung schließen.

Megaman X is a middling game that hit the scene a few years too late. We don't condemn it because it's a platform shooter. No, we condemn it because it's not a very good one.
