Summary

Mega Man in his prime! This is one solid platformer!

The Good

Well, if you like good control, level and character design, graphics, replay value, password function, fun factor, and sound FX, then you'll probably dig Mega Man X! This is definately one solid platform game! Mega Man games in general have always been very quality (except for the latest garbage "Mega Man Network Transmission"; I could pull something better out of a McDonalds dumpster with my eyes closed). You can't forget the fact that you have unlimited continues, either! Now add an easily accessable password to the list, and you have remarkably low repeatition and frustration levels (both common problems in the genre).

The Bad

I believe it goes without saying that all Mega Man music is at least a little cheesy. Mega Man X is no exception; leading the pack of 16 bit glam rock super stars. The sound FX are good, but the music is always served up with a side of corn.

The Bottom Line

This is a game of high quality! Even the corny music isn't all THAT bad. This is one of the best 2D platform games ever created and should be looked back upon as a perfect example for what used to make great games great!
