Mega Man X DOS front cover

5.0 /5
One of the best features is the inclusion of body enhancements. These add on to Mega Man X's suit, and give him new abilities, such as being able to dash, or taking less damage from enemies.

Mega Man X is an excellent all-around run-and-gun and a capable MS-DOS port of the hit console series. Play Mega Man X online!

Mega Man X game description

Mega Man X is a robot designed by Dr. Light to choose his own path in life. Years after he is created, Dr. Cain finds X and mimics his design to create a race of such robots called reploids. When the sigma virus infects these reploids, causing them to commit acts of evil, it is up to Mega Man X and his partner Zero (who is quite powerful, contrary to what his name implies) to stop it.

The thing that I’ve always liked about Mega Man X is how unique it is however. Before this game came out, most Mega Man games were essentially the same. Fight some bosses, collect their powers, and beat Dr. Wily. But this game took a whole new spin on the series. The fact that it is set in the future is interesting in itself (which is actually further in the future, since the original games were also in the future), but the game adds a lot of unique features.

One of the best features is the inclusion of body enhancements. These add on to Mega Man X’s suit, and give him new abilities, such as being able to dash, or taking less damage from enemies. Also, the fact that there are many secrets to be found in the game add to the replayablity. Many items are hidden and require certain weapons or skills to find. Some even require you to beat a certain stage first, which in turn effects another stage (for example, beating Chill Pengiun’s stage will freeze the lava in Flame Mammoth’s stage, allowing you to collect a heart tank).
