Mega Man X2

Get the game at Amazon.com!

Reviewed by Danny Strasen I have always been a big fan of the Mega Man series. I own nearly every Mega Man game and with each new game Capcom keeps on delivering some of the best 2D action games around. Mega Man X2 is one of Capcom's best.

Graphics 9 out of 10

Stangely enough in 1999 with all the great 3D graphics Mega Man X2 still blows me away. The colors are so bright and rich and the enemies are very detailed. One has to wonder when looking at this game whether Mega Man X2 is from a 32 or 64 bit system and not a 16 bit machine. It's that good!

Music and Sound 8 out of 10

The Mega Man series has always had great music and Mega Man X2 is no different. Although there are less great songs in X2 then there were in Mega Man X they are still great.

Game Challenge 8 out of 10

Mega Man X2 has just the right amount of difficulty. This is one of the reasons I like Mega Man X2 so much. A newcomer in the game world can come along and play Mega Man X2, have a few difficulties beating certain areas, but never feel annoyed by the difficulty. While a more a more experienced gamer can play through it no problem and have a blast doing it.

Game Play-Fun 8 out of 10

Mega Man X2 is a fun game to play. The controls rarely ever give you any problems since the controls are placed in the perfect places. Although charging your X-Buster, sliding, and jumping all at the same time can be very hard to accomplish, you eventually get the hang of it. The levels are also fun to play through. They are long and have interesting secrets placed throughout.

Frustration

There is very little frustration in Mega Man X2. Capcom delivers just the right amount of difficulty so it's not too easy or too hard. However collecting some of the items in the game such as the 8 heart tanks to make you stronger are very difficult to find.

Replayability 10 out of 10

The Mega Man series has always had lots of replay value and Mega Man X2 is the best of the bunch. Since the game is very non-linear you can go through the game again trying to kill the bosses in a different order and with different weapons. Better yet Mega Man X2 has 2 different endings depending on what you do in the game. Although the 2 endings aren't very different it is still fun to see them both.

Game Value 9 out of 10

Mega Man X2 was worth every penny I spent on it. The game has so many things that are great about it that I can't think of any really negative aspects. If you are looking for a game that is just plain fun then I suggest you pick up a copy of Mega Man X2.

Overall 9.5 out of 10

Mega Man X2 is my second favorite Mega Man game, falling only to Mega Man 3, which is one of my all time favorite games. I think one of Mega Man X2's best characteristics is it's originality. Mega Man X2 adds new elements to a series which seemed to deliver nothing new. So if you are tired of the same old Mega Man game I think Mega Man X2 will be a great surprise.
