Summary: This game has the same 8 boss challenge as the rest, but this time their are 6 characters in total to play as, the 3 maverick hunters with their counter parts the 3 navigators. I enjoy being able to switch off between 2 characters and the voice acting is much better than the previous X7. I've beaten the game plenty of times but I still continue to play it due to the challenge of completing the collection for armors, weapons, etc.
Summary: Well a good X game is back. After surviving X4-X7, X8 has saved the series... but barely. It offers a true X experience that is fun but somewhat easy. I think that the character switch option (Which allows you basically two characters with two full health bars) makes it this so easy, and without it then it would be a lot better. This game also allows you to use a few different options with X's armor which makes it a more custom experience.
Summary: Whom I -would- recommend this game to: Gamers of any age group looking to burn a couple hours on a weekend before Monday rolls around. Whom I would -not- recommend this game to: Anyone expecting something either 1) different, 2) involved, or even 3) time-consuming--for Mega Man X8 is none of these things.
The revival of the franchise? A step in the right direction, but not quite there.

Summary: Keiji Inafune himself said in a 2005 gamespy interview that he was only involved in the X series until X4, claiming that afterward "Other people took direction of the series." I seem to recall hearing something about some of the team members who worked on X1-X4 coming back for X8, an occasion would not be the least bit surprising.
Summary: In broad strokes, this Mega Man X game is like all the others. You have a first level that indicates a problem, then 8 bosses with accompanying stages, and finally, two or three stages with bosses until a final showdown. As usual there are some good songs/music, background graphics, and boss challenges that make the Mega Man series the success that they are.
Summary: I bought this for my 9-year old son on his birthday. He loves MegaMan and really enjoyed this game. The graphics and gameplay are much improved over the past two MegaMan games. It brings together the spirit of the early games in MegaMan Anniversary Collection with slick 3-D graphics. The only downside is that it is pretty easy in "Easy" mode and my son completed the game relatively fast. Other than that, its a great buy!
Summary: The world of "Mega Man" is becoming more and more convuluted every day, it seems. Five different alternate timelines and sets of characters is enough to make the mind boggle alone, but the fact that most of those timelines feature at least 5 games to their credit is downright daunting.
Summary: this game is better than the last x games, but this isn't the best Megaman game ever. The game has a decent diffulculty, but some people may find that they die all the time which may ruin the fun. The game has somewhat decent replay value, but you may get tired from all repetition. Overall, this is the best x game yet and Capcom should keep making all of their x games this good.
Summary: I will start by saying is not as bad as some say. Most they do have a point the spikes that automatic kill are getting old fast. 2 of my stars came the boss battles. Though they names are silly like Optic Sunflower who can't tell is a boy or a girl. A half a star came the music and graphics. They are good don't get me wrong but they are not that important to me.
