Summary: This is a great handheld port of Megaman X, but it is not better than the original. The music is one of the main factors for me. The original X had this rocking guitar and crazy solos, but this has kind of a techno theme to it. This seems to be harder than X. I have beaten X, but not this one. Most of the heart containers are generally in the same spaces, but the upgrades for X aren't. Also the way you get some of these upgrades are different too.
Summary: this game i have mixed feelings about. its a port of the original mega man x. when i got this game, i expected it to be fun and the controls to be spot on and intuitive. and they are. one thing i didn't expect (and i should have since i saw the words "mega man" on the cover) was the difficulty. this game is relentless w/ the levels and all the enemies and traps along the way. the first boss i beat took me a week to figure out how to get through the level and to beat him.
Summary: I bought this game and others to help kill time at work and so far it is worth the cost. My only trouble is not with the game but acctually another ebay item I purchased which is the memory card. Playing these games and gaining new items or levels is a pain in the a__ without a memory card. So like I said the game was worth the cost.
Summary: If you like the old snes megaman X, then is a very good way to play this old school game, in a new redesigned graphics and sound including the animations it was supposed to have to begin with but could not make it happen back in the days of the snes.
