    This review is from: Mega Man X4 (Video Game)
    Mega Man X was a great series on the Super Nintendo and it continues on the Playstation. In these side scrolling games, you control a humanoid robot known as X. Although based loosely on the original Mega Man series from the days of the NES, the story of X takes place in something of an alternate universe. Both X and his comrade Zero are Maverick Hunters. Their objective is to destroy aberrant robots, known as Mavericks. The Mavericks are led by Sigma, who is the personification of a computer virus. The X series is often considered to be darker and more sophisticated looking than the original series.

    In this particular game, you can choose to be either X or Zero. X controls much like the original Mega Man did. He can walk, jump, and shoot his Buster cannon. He can also cling to walls, something exclusive to the X series. Zero, on the other hand, controls in fundamentally the same way, but his weapons are different. Zero has no long range attacks, only a lightsabre type of sword. It’s arguably harder to go through the game using Zero.

    As per the usual Mega Man routine, you are pitted against eight bosses. They are Web Spider, Split Mushroom, Cyber Peacock, Storm Owl, Magma Dragoon, Frost Walrus, Jet Stingray, and Slash Beast. You get to pick who you want to fight first. After going through their respective levels (typically based around themes like snow, fire, and so forth), you fight the Mavericks themselves. Upon defeating them, you get to take their weapon that you can, in turn, use against a different Maverick. Zero’s system is a bit different, as you get skills, not weapons. Such skills are executed in a manner not unlike most fighting games (like Street Fighter II). After dispatching the eight bosses, you are taken to the final showdown against Sigma himself.

    The new things in X4, besides the ability to play as Zero and the obvious graphic enhancements, also include anime cutscenes, a game saving ability (instead of passwords), and more bizarre animal bosses. Of note, all of the bosses have a sort of “desperation” attack that they use when their energy runs low. A nice touch.

    The graphics in this game are big and detailed. The levels are lavishly designed, but they aren’t as long as their Super Nintendo counterparts. The music is still in the power synth style used in the original games. One thing that got annoying was the sound effects. The robots tend to shout or yelp whenever you have them jump or shoot. This can get on your nerves.

    Play control is top notch, although you might want to reconfigure your controller setup so dash is one of the upper buttons instead of the default Circle button. The game isn’t overly hard as X, but you’ll find quite a challenge in beating the game using Zero.

    Overall, if you enjoyed the first three X games, here’s another one to satisfy you.

    By owning this game, you can trust what i have to say about the game. I enjoy mega man games emminsely and have played almost all of them to date, and i think this one keeps the beet going on. Like X3 you are mega man going aroung fighting a certain number of cybernetic animals in futuristic worlds. Unlike most mega man’s you have seen, in X4 you can choose to be either Mega Man or his friend Zero. Zero is a little difficult to get the hang of because he uses a sword, not the X-buster. What is neat is you still are looking for those capsules that give you enhancment parts to your suit. One little bump in the road for me is the endless amount of “Final” Bosses. It seems to necer end, there are literally over 7 bosses you half to fight after you defeat the normal bosses. But i throughly enjoy this game as i do most mega man’s, and i would reccommend this to any hardcore mega man fan, like myself:)

    MMX4 is a very good game of its type. It’s gameplay is identical to the other MMX games on the SNES, but that’s not a bad thing if you enjoyed the first 3 games. The anime scenes are a nice addition, and the little introductions before boss battles add a bit of atmosphere to the game. Overall, a very well-done game, if side scrolling action’s your thing.
