Mega Man X Collection review

  • Perfect ports of classic action games
  • Price is right at 30 bucks
  • No more passwords
  • Not all games worth remembering
  • Not-so-bad Mega Man X8 is MIA
  • Zero; robots should not have hair

Capcom's asking 30 bucks for the privilege, which is less than the going price for a bare Mega Man X3 cartridge on eBay. Mega Man X Collection is a true bargain that should please Mega Man fans and anyone else who's into retro-style action and platform games. And if you're not, maybe you will be after playing this.

    What's wrong with X2? I think it's the best SNES game in the series. The buster upgrade is by far the best one, the MIDI instruments are top notch, and it has a little of the added variety of X3 without going overboard. By the way, it should be mentioned that X3 on this collection is the PS1 version, which has live-instrument music that has to stop and start over awkwardly. So as far as I know, the only way to play the original is still to fork over a few hundred for the cartridge (or emulate, I guess).
