    If you want a real taste of what Mega Man X is, pick up a console or top loader and play the original. Having said that, MEGA MAN X is a fun game, especially for those who don't have a SNES emulator or just want a mobile alternative.

    The controls aren't perfect, but some assists are included to make them a bit easier to handle. Obviously, the Mega Man series being what it is - extremely difficult platforming games that demand player perfection - this isn't the ideal Mega Man experience, but it is a fun way to experience these games on an iOS device.

    The formula still works, but this adaptation is strange and a bit confusing. It changes the visuals but the new ones are not breathtaking, the levels have been splitted for some reason, and its in-app purchases are a bit insulting.

    As a stand-alone platforming action game for the iPhone, Mega Man X isn't bad, but it falls well short of the standard set by the original nearly two decades ago.

    The classic original shines through in places, but its greatness is mostly clouded by a poor-quality port.

    For long-time fans, Mega Man X on iOS is at best tolerable and at worst insulting. It's a "remake" rife with unnecessary alterations that only serve to make it feel more dated than the original game.

    Megaman saga is by nature nervous and challenging. The only reward this iOS remake will give you could be the satisfaction of having this great name of platform gaming on your iPhone.
