The game builds upon the original, adding newly rendered 3D character models, totally new environments and gameplay features that raise the bar for side-scrolling platformers. Mega Man Maverick Hunter X also includes an animated movie that provides real insight into the Mega Man X universe and even gives gamers a sneak peek at events that took place before the plot line of the first game. Plus to ensure that even the most veteran of gamers is given a real challenge, the level arrangements have been modified; with item locations, map layouts and the strategies needed for completing levels all updated. The year is 21XX. A mysterious robot named X has become the model from which further robots, called Reploids, were created to aid mankind. Unfortunately, some of the Reploids turned against the humans and were given the name Mavericks. In response to this, the Maverick Hunters, an elite squad of Reploids, was formed to combat these renegade Reploids and calm was restored until one of the Maverick Hunters, a powerful Reploid named Sigma, turned against the peacekeepers. Now X and his fellow Maverick Hunter friend, Zero, must prevent Sigma from executing his evil plans to destroy humanity. [Capcom] Expand

  1. Capcom goes above and beyond with the new Vile mode, an additional difficulty level, remixed music, a thirty minute animation, and the Mega Man Powered Up demo. Even better, Mega Man Maverick Hunter X carries an MSRP of $29.99, $10 less than most new PSP games.
  2. With wonderful aesthetics, some cool extra features, a budget price-point ($30 or so), and short loading times, Maverick Hunter X is one of the most pleasant experiences on the PSP.

    Capcom has taken an extra step in ensuring that this is more than a quick remake with flashier graphics.
  4. Veteran players can look forward to the challenges of Vile mode, while newbies will discover a faithful remake of one of the best platformers on the SNES. Yeah, $30 sounds about right.
  5. A reminder of everything that was great about the series, including the superb control and beaming visuals and sound presentation, and it throws in some new goodies to keep fans shooting well into the future.
  6. A pretty picture to look at and a port of an excellent Super Nintendo action title. On the other hand increased slowdown and its short length will restrict Irregular Hunter X strictly to Mega Man maniacs. [JPN Import]

    With a few adjustments this could have been something special. As is, it's a bland, archaic mess.

    suhweet! Here I was reminising about the good old days, and thinking about that Mega Man: Powered Up game that they're doing for the PSP.suhweet! Here I was reminising about the good old days, and thinking about that Mega Man: Powered Up game that they're doing for the PSP. I said, yeah Rockman was good, but Megaman X is better. They ought to make a PSP game from the Mega Man X series. So what did they do? They made a Mega Man X PSP game based on the first one in the series That's What!!! But's it's not just that oh no. They also add in new boss intros and dialouge, a playable Vile campaign, and a 24 minute backstory movie! Fanboys will rejoice, critics will jabber, and wallets will empty. I don't know if it's telepathy or what, but I am a happy happy boy, Heck I was afraid to go to bed, fearing that I would wake up and discover it all to be a dream. But's it's not, and in less that a month, I'll be able to play the game that introduced me gaming on the PSP. A8 year old's dream, 10 years in the making Expand

    Maverick hunter X is a remake of the timeless super nintendo masterpiece mega man X.. Mega maverick hunter X is just like Mega man x except inMaverick hunter X is a remake of the timeless super nintendo masterpiece mega man X.. Mega maverick hunter X is just like Mega man x except in some small changes that i wont spoil ill talk about the obvious ones SPOILER ALERT after u complete the game u can play with Vile which is amazing and makes beating this game with X a manditory goal. it made everything good with mega man x and made it in HD but also made a seperate movie telling a more well developed and thought through story. the only thing that hurt this game is making it portable and hand held. if it sold better and better yet on a home colsole they would have redone x2-x6 which is sad it didn't sell through because i wanted them to fix that mess of a game x6 and see how great they remade the masterpiece mega man x4. bad voice acting and all. WHAT AM I FIGHTING FOOOOOOOOOOOOOR Expand

    A really incredible 2.5D remake of the classic Mega Man X, this reboot not only includes a full transitioned port of the original, but alsoA really incredible 2.5D remake of the classic Mega Man X, this reboot not only includes a full transitioned port of the original, but also includes anime style cutscenes, a full 30 minute movie on the backstory of the marverick war, and how everything started, and the ability to play through the game as vile as well. This is an incredible port, great graphics, beautiful and amazing music, great level design and gameplay, and is one of my favorite psp games of all time. Highly reccomended to action platforming fans, who are looking for a game with great graphics, incredible, mind blowing music, and fun, exciting gameplay. did i say the music kicks ass? and the game for that matter?

    Its about as good as the title makes sense. Its not quite as good as others in the series. It suffers from enemies that take too many hits.Its about as good as the title makes sense. Its not quite as good as others in the series. It suffers from enemies that take too many hits. The stages aren't very long. The bosses are too hard. You can latch onto walls to make the platforming a little easier. This doesn't make the gameplay good. I think its mostly the level design and enemies that need some balance. It just feels empty playing this type of game. Expand
