Okay, so Megaman X is probably one of the most classic and iconic videogames on the super Nintendo.on this blog I will be talking about the pros and cons of Megaman. So, without further ado, let’s go!
One of the best things about the game is the graphics. For it’s time, 16-bit graphics were far superior. Nowadays, you get these fancy 3-D graphics and camera views. I have absolutely nothing against the 3 dimensions, but side scrollers are better in my opinion. Another good thing about the game is the gameplay. It’s easily addictive (in the GOOD way) and you can get used to the controls easily. In the game, you can jump up the walls, which is a vast improvement from the last games. One of my favourite in-game improvements is the armour upgrades in the levels. During one of the stages, you come across a capsule where dr. light speaks with you. He explains that there are other capsules hidden across the levels and then gives you the dash boots. Some armour pieces help you find other upgrades, such as heart tanks, sub tanks and armour. Since this is a Capcom game, of course they had to have a street fighter secret. In one of the levels, if you have all the armour you c n reach a certain point on the map where you find a final capsule. In the capsule, you see Dr.Light with a bandanna on his head (naturally) and he says he has a present for you. When you go inside, you get the hadoken, the one-shot wonder.
The final thing is the catchy music. In each stage, you get the cool techy music of the 20th century. Unlike many other games, the music actually changes between the stages. Now let’s move on to the cons.
One of my biggest issues with this game is the difficulty. Holy mother of god is the difficulty a problem. First off, I understand that the final boss was supposed to be hard, but defeating his dog (yes, that’s actually a boss.) defeating a lightsabre Sigma (star wars for the win!) and beating a flying, electrifying, fire breathing Sigma is just a little (a lot) farfetched for me as well as being almost impossible! One other giant problem is the minibosses. During some stages, there are some minibosses. My issues with them is that they are a waste of time, effort, energy (in both the game and in real life) and your sanity.
Well, there you have it. All the ups and downs of megaman x. I guess i should end it here. bye………
