To put it simple, Mega Man X takes place in the future, after the original Mega Man series. A group of robots calling themselves the Mavericks are waging war with the humans. They are lead by an evil reploid named Sigma. Meanwhile a rebel group--a group of robots calling themselves the Maverick Hunters--are on a quest to save humanity. And if you couldn't guess, it's Mega Man X leading this group.
You won't find any members of the original Mega Man series here, except well... Mega Man. The Mega Man X series shows a Mega Man that has more edge to him. The series also shows a more mature and grown up storyline.
Each of the Mega Man X games plays virtually the same. You control Mega Man X, created by Dr. Light years ago. Unlike the original, X can climb walls and cling to them. Like the original, however, you select a stage, go to it, and make your way to the boss and defeat it. Upon defeating a boss, you'll gain its special abilities. It's simple gameplay, but it works out just as well as it did in the original series.
Another highlight was how they introduced a key character. Zero. Zero isn't playable throughout the first half of the series, but in the later half he becomes a key player. He plays a very important role in the story.
In this collection, however, the games have been basically emulated. The emulation is perfect. Even the original passwords from the Super Nintendo versions will work.Read more ›
The X series debuted in the early 90's on the SNES with a darker, more mature feel designed to expand on the tried and true formula of the original NES titles. The main difference lies in the progressive, overarching plot dealing with human/reploid (fancy word for robot) conflict and some very grown-up ideas about this self-proclaimed 'race' of androids seeking freedom and realizing their dream of a robotopia. That's pretty intense for a side-scroller.
As far as gameplay evolution, the X games focus on collecting various ability upgrades and health extensions in addition to the old "kill the bosses and get their special powers" mechanic of the classic Mega Man. New actions like charge shots, dashing and hovering add a deeper set of variables to the equation and really flesh out the experience. Gone are Cut-Man and Dust-Man, as the baddies in X get wacky animal-based monikers like Spark Mandrill, Morph Moth and my personal favorite, Duff McWhalen.
Mega Man X through X6 are included in this fairly robust package, covering three SNES and three PSOne titles released over an eight-year period, and each game adds variation and depth to the experience. X3 introduces the mysterious, androgynous, light-sabering Zero as a partially playable character (think Proto-Man with a ponytail), and X4 tops that by giving Zero his own playable storyline.Read more ›
This has every game in the series up to X6, the quality of the games are mostly high though that's mostly up to personal taste. I honestly didn't care for X3 or X6 but the rest of the games are top-notch platforming with some of the best soundtracks in the genre.
There are some forgettable extras, a few bits of concept art, music, nothing you can't find online. Honestly the reason to get this is strictly the games which are 100% worth it.
The one big gripe I have with this collection is if you play it on PS2 through an component, it will NOT work, the games will not display though the menus will. I'm not sure why this is since I've played Sonic Mega Collection on the same set up and I've had no problems.
The collection does work on compatible PS3's via HDMI there's very slight controller delay which can be hard to take in a 2D platformer. However this can vary as I understand between monitors & set ups.
However with that problem it's still a solid collection as a lot of these games are hard to get and they are emulated really really well.

Been playing Megaman since the NES days. Purchased Megaman anniversary collection for PS2 when it came out in 2005, somehow I missed this one. Glad I found it new on Amazon. Read morePublished 12 days ago by A Generally Happy Amazon Customer
I love the Megaman X series. This is a great game. It said it was new, but the plastic wrap around the CD box did not seem to be the original one. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Ilian A. Deering
