MegaMan X: Maverick Hunter
The first Megaman title
to hit the PSP, this is a remake of Mega Man X, dubbed Maverick Hunter.
One of the things that I was really happy about with these games is that
the approach of Capcom in not just dishing out a port of the game.
No way, what we are faced with is some really nice
updated gameplay, graphics and anything that makes for a really good
gameplay experience. There has been a lot of effort put into this title
and that shows immediately upon starting up your PSP.
The idea behind the game is simple: have Megaman or
X as he is known in this game apprehend as many bad robots as he can in
a side scrolling adventure. The look of the game on your PSP is glorious
and the entire title shines the whole way through. I think that itís
funny that even with all the advances we make with games and graphics,
that a good game is still a good game even after a long period of time.
We may find it easier to play than we did, but for the most part, it is
still an enjoyable experience.
Thatís what I found with Megaman X and I know that
gamers are going to have a ball with this title. But wait, like that
man says on the late night ads, there is more!
If you finish the game you are going to unlock some
tasty treats that fans of the series are going to love. After fighting
your way through all the Reploids (the bad robots), you actually get to
play through the game as one! A fiendish robot called Vile that will
test your skills on a harder difficulty level as he is not just a skin
for the Megaman model but plays entirely differently and will certainly
take some getting used to.
Part of the thing about this game is getting used to
the retro feel of a side scrolling game. Itís old school but I admit
that I really got into it and think that all you guys will as well. The
other extra that you are gonna go crazy about is the addition of an
anime that goes for about 30 whole minutes! Now that is massive and it
tells about all the stuff that happened up to the start of the game. The
quality is fantastic and I found myself totally engrossed by it all.
There are times that you can rightly be annoyed when
a remake of a title comes out as cannon fodder for a console. This is
not one of those times and you are gonna be loving it all the way
through, and then again when you just know you will play through as
