Mega Man Xtreme 2 gives you a little more bang for your buck with Zero mixed into the formula. Still, although it's a superior title to Mega Man Xtreme, it's not quite the golden saviour of gaming either. The game itself is rather fair, though it won't give you the level of challenge experienced X-ers may be seeking. With the ability to purchase upgrades in ADDITION to Dr. Light's improvements, the game becomes basically a cakewalk. That's not what X games are about. But I didn't throw anything across the room this time around, and that has to count for something.
In the end, you really can't blame Mega Man Xtreme 2 for being derivative or too similar to other entries in the series. There's no real reason to tinker with a successful recipe. It may be a simplistic assessment, but if you liked previous Mega Man games, you'll like Mega Man Xtreme 2. If you didn't, you won't.
If you played through the first entry in the Xtreme series, you probably walked away from the game with a bad taste in your mouth. The levels were too short, the boss battles lacked strategy, and the overall difficulty didn’t embody the nail-biting essence we’ve become accustomed to. With the sequel, Capcom implemented two different quests, allowing players to play as Mega Man and the mysterious sidekick, Zero. In addition to this, a number of hidden modes have been inserted to raise the replay value, the bosses are actually somewhat intelligent, and the overall difficulty curve has been raised to cater to an older audience.
Though it still follows the basic formula as the first Mega Man Xtreme, Mega Man Xtreme 2 makes a suitable number of improvements and additions to make it worthwhile for Mega Man fans and those just looking for a good overall game.
Mega Man sticks to its roots in Xtreme 2. His latest adventure is enhanced with tons of weapon customizations and fast gameplay. Check it out if you want to get old school play on the road.
