All about Mega Man X

Gameplay: In Mega Man X, the basic goal is to destroy the eight robot bosses and then defeat Sigma. It is the same basic premise as the classic Mega Man series. You can defeat most of the bosses with your X-Buster if you have enough skill. Finding each maverick’s elemental weakness and learning their pattern of movement are keys to defeating them. For example, Armored Armadillo is hard to beat with your standard X-Buster. If you previously beat a boss and received his weapon, you can expose his weakness. Along the way, you can also collect items that improve your status. There are classic E-Tanks to collect, Heart Containers to increase your overall health, and upgrades to your armor such as the Leg Armor that allows you to dash.

Graphics: Mega Man X’s futuristic setting is well portrayed in this game. The architecture is supposed to reflect how the year of 21XX will be like. Mechanical influences are seen everywhere from light posts to floors. I’d say our world is already looking similar to Mega Man’s if you see the architecture in Asian countries. The graphics are amazing for the Super Nintendo. Various environments are featured in the game. All of the characters, enemies, and bosses in the game are animated and colorful. At the same time, they all match the sci-fi and robotic tones of the game.

Music: The music in the game is excellent. Most of the music is up-tempo rock which reflects the action and is very engaging. Storm Eagle and Spark Mandrill are examples of this. There are some slower, more melodic tunes that are featured on Chill Penguin’s stage and Boomer Kuwanger’s stage. The rest of the audio is great as well.

Control: The Super Nintendo Pad works perfectly for this game. Pressing A or tapping twice on the direction you’re facing lets you dash. Y lets you use the X-Buster or selected weapon. The L/R buttons make it easy to cycle through the available weapons you have. All of the inputs work well without any lag.

If you love action games and Mega Man in general, you’ll love this game. With its great graphics, music, and gameplay, it’s a game you shouldn’t miss.

Pros: Graphics, sound, and responsive controls.

Cons: Not much to do after you beat the game. Collecting all the upgrades and items will add some replay value.

Score: 8.0
