Game Review

Mega Man X is a popular platform game developed by Capcom, released for the SNES in 1993 and ported to PC in 1995.

It holds the distinction of being the first Mega Man game for the SNES, as well as the first game in the Mega Man X series. The Mega Man X series is a spin-off of the popular Mega Man series. The game was released in 1993, and has since been ported and remade on other platforms like Playstation 2, Gamecube, MS-DOS, Mobile Phones, Playstation Portable, and PC.

The plot of the game features a futuristic setting. Humans and “Reploids”, sentient robots, live there in harmony and less than harmony. Many Reploids commit nefarious acts. These troublemaking Reploids are refered to as Mavericks. Mega Man X, our protagonist, is a Reploid Hunter. X must hunt down Sigma, a maverick attempting to bring about human extinction.

This game is a gem. Despite its age it still feels brand new. It's a classic platformer that will leave you wanting more. The controls are solid, the music is rockin' and the gameplay is addictive. My only problem with the game is its length. I just wish there was more to it.
