Mega Man X8

Thunderbolt Games
24 September 2006
  • Excerpt: The Maverick Hunters are back. After dealing with the Red Alert Syndicate and adding another member to the team in Mega Man X7 , this band of heroes can finally get back to policing the future and kicking bad guy ass. They’ve been dispatched to Jakob Tower, a gigantic elevator that connects the city to a newly built space station on the moon. But just as they get around to securing the tower, their old enemy Vile shows up and bombs the hell out of the place.

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: The Mega Man X series has always been very hit and miss with its quality. The last two installments were quite disappointing. Thankfully it seems as if the series is getting back on track in Mega Man X8 . Like its most recent predecessor, Mega Man X8 is rendered in full 3D. The graphics are improved and even more detailed this time around, which results in the prettiest Mega Man X game to date, at least in a technical sense.

  • Excerpt: As the rally genre progresses through generations and generations of sequels, evolutions, revolutions and all the rest, it becomes more and more difficult to be able to see the differences between the different editions. It used to be that you could easily tell the original version of WRC from WRC II Extreme without any difficulty, but now that the genre has been pushed as far as it has, there is less of a jump with each progressive release.

WRC Rally Evolved Review

VideoGamer.com
5 March 2006
  • Excerpt: Rallying is a rather dull sport to watch on the TV. Much like many motorsports, the thrill of driving just doesn't come across to the viewer. Sure, it has its fans, like all sports, but it's not something you'll find pulling in millions of viewers during a peak time slot on the BBC. Rally videogames on the other hand are the complete opposite, containing more thrills than the entire four series of 24 that have aired.

  • Conclusion: Better than most of the series' efforts, this is still a painfully stunted experience. The art team give things a nice visual nudge, but the focus still needs to fall on the core gameplay.

Mega Man X8 Review

GameSpot
9 December 2004
  • Excerpt: Last year's Mega Man X7 marked the premiere of Capcom's loveable, heroic blue robot boy on the PlayStation 2. Unfortunately, the game proved to be a pretty inauspicious debut for the company's vaunted mascot, as it strayed from the series' tried-and-true mechanics and replaced them with frustrating new ones. Mega Man X8, the aptly titled follow-up, returns the series to a more traditional style of gameplay and eliminates some of the annoyances of its predecessor.
  • Pros: A return to the old ways of classic Mega Man gameplay., X7's horrible camera has been replaced by a far more functional one., Legitimate challenge.
  • Cons: The classic Mega Man gameplay, while nice, feels dated., Unimpressive visuals., Mostly bad voice acting., Uninspired, trial-and-error-heavy level designs., Dumb, dumb bosses.

  • Conclusion: Mega Man games have always had a lot of replay value, and this one follows suit in that respect. Because of the non-linear play setup, players are given the choice of what order they want to play the stages in, and so, there is a lot of freedom. Also, there are more customization options and RPG elements thrown into the mix, which makes things even more interesting.
