The game was fun, but they turned X into a whiney wimp.

Summary: I know they called the game Mega Man X, but they put too much emphasis on X. Those special weapons that you acquire get wasted quick and are not effective when they are the boss' weakness. I love the armors that X has throughout the series, but I have to say, the armor in this game looks like the one from the first one with minor changes for looks and the abilities suck.
Summary: An onion being a maverick? what happened to the boss selection screens we used to see where there were bosses we were scared to face first because they looked bad? None of these bosses looked threatening and the weakest looking are actually the hardest...(the kangaroo boss.) Capcom should've kept it 2D and axel has no purpose. The ability to switch between characters takes away from the challenge and megaman sounds like doug funnie. Avoid!
Summary: I confess, I love everything Megaman and Megaman X is my favorite game ever but I HATE this game. My first issue with this game is that I hate the new art style. It has taken away all the dark, dismal and cool look that made the originals great and replaced it with a kiddy cartoony look that makes you feel like you're playing a power rangers game. The graphics are awful and the characters have no facial animations.
And a lot of you thought X6 was bad!! it's nothing compared to this catastrophe!

Summary: Where to begin on this review of one of my top 5 worst Mega Man Games of all time. Okay, for those who know nothing about the series, it's a sub series in the Mega Man franchise. The sub-series began on the Super Nintendo (or Super Famicom in Japan) which is considered not only one of the best Mega Man games of all time but also one of the best games on the system.
Summary: Since I was little, Mega Man X has always thrilled me with its constant action and original bosses. I liked being able to find armor upgrades for X and I thought Zero was cool. Capcom improved upon the series bit by bit with X2, X3, and X4. But then, X5 came out. It was fun, but they tried to make the game too complicated with special upgrades and stuff. Also, the names of the bosses stopped being the same. (Duff McWhalen???) But still, it was fun.
Summary: ever since i was about 5 years old, megaman has been my favorite videogame. I started wih megaman 7 and was instantly hooked! As the series went on it was nearing its peek. meg man X was insanely good, great powerups, and o so much mroe to collect, as was X2, and especially the ultra rare, 125 dollar X3. The trnslation to the next gen consoles is usually the ultimate down fall of great side scrolling, old school shooter, and this is no exception.
THIS is mega man x7? CAPCOM what were u thinking???

Summary: what was CAPCOM thinking when they tried to make a mega man x game 3d??? the thing i ALWAYS liked about the mega man x series, was it ALWAYS kept the "traditional" side scrolling theme! i always liked that, they were the only ones who knew it was about game play and not 3d graphics. i put the emphasiz on "were"! this is horrible, i cant believe they made it into 3d graphics. not only is it not as appealing!
Summary: Never in my life have I wanted to beat an MMX game just to take it back. The control is horrendously tedious and other aspects that made the first six great translate poorly to the PS2. Surely on his 15th birthday of all times should MegaMan have to avoid such lackluster treatment. Believe me, it looks great, but once you've played it, the charm wears thin. In short, should've been great. Isn't.
