Quickies Don't Cut It - Mega Man X3 Review

Quickies Don't Cut It - Mega Man X3 Review

Mega Man X1 is the Super Nintendo classic almost everybody's played, being the most financially successful and well-received, but I personally think Mega Man X2 is the superior game. To me it seemed to be a smoother, better-crafted experience, mainly because it isn't as arbitrarily difficulty as its predecessor, though the music isn't nearly as memorable and the weapons are disappointing.

RZ Review - Mega Man X (SNES & PSP)

The original line of Mega Man titles on the Nintendo Entertainment System are some of the most iconic 8-bit video games; they have tight controls, great level design and tons of cool weapons. A new Mega Man game would be released every single year, but many people grew tired of the Blue Bomber around the 4th and 5th installments, with dropping sales figures as a result. Because of this, series artist Keiji Infaune wanted to re-invent the Mega Man formula through new gameplay features and a more mature storyline.
