  1. The game shines graphically. Capcom uses a clever mix of 3D textures and cel shading. The backgrounds are full of vivid colors, the explosions are clear and there are even some neat shadowing effects.
  2. The multiple angles, 3D engine, and stellar visuals in Mega Man X7 do move the series forward, even if gameplay remains the same, which is okay in our book. [Nov 2003, p.41]

    We can only recommend the game to those with an undying patience or a passion for the series. Otherwise, there are plenty of other actioners out there that will provide far more fun than this.
  4. The shoddy camera system and somewhat unintuitive controls cause far too many headaches.

    Right away, you'll notice that the camera just doesn't work very well.. Promising but poorly designed 3D levels drag down the fun. [Nov. 2003, p.51]
  6. Mega Man X7 isn't even properly dubbed in English. I just can't handle that. What's up with such poor translations and acting? The story is so swollen in heady detail that it virtually detaches itself from the actual gameplay.
  7. Absolutely unacceptable. MMX7 not only fails to be fun, but barely works right.

    The game is not bad, but the problem is: Is so short, and not have unlocking items like the other megaman X Game's, and capcom can do the controls better than that Expand

    Capcoms fun plat former and classic series do a fine job on giving fans what they wanted, while it isn't as good as some of the previous games it does it well. Updated with Cel shaded graphics, colorful and beautiful is marvelous. The gameplay is the same, simply the old gamma that we have seen in the bomber, in negative views, it's tiresome , i don't know what its the problem in here but it isn't the Mega Man that had the big charm when it came out in 90's . Still, is best setting off with a decent but fun Mega Man. Expand

    While Mega Man X7 is constantly slated for it's blandness, the game itself isn't that bad, if you haven't played any other mega man X game before this one, then your first few hours with it will be incredibly infuriating, however once you get used to it, it's not so bad, saving reploids and powering up abilities is a lot of fun, however the main character Mega Man X isn't playable until half way through the game, which might possibly be because he's rubbish to play as in my opinion, Zero is better but the fact that he's a melee fighter with a short-range weapon makes Axl much safer and more fun to play, the final levels can be incredibly infuriating, especially the infamous boss fight with Red, which I was on for a day and a half, embarrassing I know, but it was difficult, the final boss isn't as difficult as the fight with Red is, but anyway that's Mega Man X7, better than X6 but worse than X5.
