Recommended Posts

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7OXCcoaWEGY Its funny on how when the psp came out alot of classic games got a remake to take advantage of the psp's graphics such as castlevania: dracula X chronicles, Ultimate Ghost and Goblins and now were gonna have a look at the remake of the classic megaman marverick hunter x. as you see hunter x is a remake of the original megaman X game for the snes. most of the gameplay from the classic version has been untouched although some of the locations of the X upgrades have been changed so yeah that kinda ticked some of the fans off Gameplay A classic platformer at is finest just get through the obstacles take care of the enemies in your way, beat the boss and move on it may sound simple but if you are a first time playing a megaman it might take you some time to getting used to the boss fights. also remember that megaman games are not for the kind of players who think of rushing head first will make them succeed well im gonna tell you this now, you do that without thinking whats ahead then prepare to die....and die....and die... Story: takes place in an unspecified time during the 22nd century (21XX) and approximately 100 years after the original Mega Man series. A human archaeologist named Dr. Cain accidentally discovers the ruins of a robotics research facility that had once been operated by the legendary robot designer Dr. Thomas Light. Among the ruins, Dr. Cain finds a large capsule which contains a highly advanced robot with human-level intelligence and emotions, and even free will; the likes of which the world has never seen before. Dr. Cain spends the next several months studying the robot, who is named Mega Man X, or simply "X". Some months later, Dr. Cain and X complete the first "replicate android" or "Reploid", a robot who can think, feel, learn, and grow exactly like a human. Within the year, the design is standardized and Reploids are mass-produced. However, with the free will given to a Reploid comes the possibility of criminal activity previously unknown to robots; such rogue Reploids are said to have "gone maverick" and are later referred to as "Mavericks". As the public outcry against the few Maverick incidents becomes too great to deny, the government steps in, and under the advice of Dr. Cain, forms an elite military police organization called the "Maverick Hunters". The Hunters are to capture or disable any Reploids that posed a danger to humans, provide damage control at Maverick uprisings, help with disaster recovery, and perform other tasks as needed. To lead this group, Dr. Cain designs a very advanced Reploid, thought to be immune to whatever defect causes Mavericks. Named Sigma, this robot heads the Hunters some time before ultimately going Maverick himself, taking the vast majority of the other Hunters with him.[14] Sigma seizes control of a small island, driving out all human occupants. Claiming that the humans are inferior and that they are limiting the growth and potential of Reploids, he calls for his followers to begin a massive extinction effort.X, guilt-ridden at having helped design such a ruthless and warlike race, decides to join forces with the only other remaining Hunter (Zero) and attempt to stop Sigma at any cost. Graphics and sounds being as one of the first games on the psp it took full advantage of the graphics it had to offer. as for the sound the remixes of the orignal soundtrack from megaman x might be a hit or miss for some players itl all come down if they prefer the original sounds or the new remixed ones. Extras: after you finish the game with X you can play the game again as Vile Offering a different storyline and a different end game boss, one thing is that vile cant do a charge shot but his finger buster shot can do more than enough damage to take the enemie out, the boss fights with vile are a bit more strategic, unlike x in which has hits X buster and 8 sub weapons. vile has up to 45 sub weapons but you can only carry 3 at a time one for each of his parts, his shoulder arm cannon and leg/knee it may sound overwhelming at first but you can past the game using viles default weapon as it does moderate damage to enemies and bosses. If you finish the game with X you will unlock this OVA anime movie called day of Sigma in which it tells the events that will lead up to the original megaman X
Overall Old timers and new games will find it fun to pick up and play this game I highly recommend this tittle to all megaman fans and non fans
