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 ›
The X series, from its very inception, was meant to advance the Mega Man name into a more hardcore direction, and it most definitely succeeded. Of course, the main gameplay retains the classic Mega Man formula. You go after 8 bosses with their own unique stage, you take on a final fortress series of levels, you gain new abilities and weapons from your vanquished foes, it's all about tight platforming and running and gunning, and so on and so worth. However, it's not just classic Mega Man with an "X" at the end of the title. New moves, health upgrades, and Light capsules that hold armor upgrades for X are attributes first introduced in Mega Man X, and quickly became series' mainstay elements. In later X titles, you could play the game as Zero, who utilized a totally different style of play with his melee-centric Z-saber focus and a "Weapon Get" system that totally differs from X's and is very unique. I love playing as both characters.Read more ›
