  • Summary: Mega Man Maverick Hunter X is a remake of the original Mega Man X title that first appeared on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. 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. 90
    It's one of the best games in the series - and now one of the best games on the PSP - and this remake has been done with so much love and care that you'll be unable to turn it away.
  3. As a $50 PS2 release, this would have been nearly unacceptable. But 30 for a portable version, that plays as well as this one does, is wonderful. Hopefully the rest of the X games follow.
  4. 80
    At $20 less than most PSP games, there isn't a better value on the platform. Mega Man: Maverick Hunter X does the series proud.
  5. A good game but it lacks replay value. Hardcore gamers could blast through this in a day so they should be advised to rent it.
  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]
  7. 30
    With a few adjustments this could have been something special. As is, it's a bland, archaic mess.

    It's very nice to see this updated version of the SNES's Mega Man X. The graphical touches are nice, and everything runs smoothly but the best part is that some of the hidden items have had their locations switched up so veteran players will have some fresh secrets to discover. This is simple, fun, retro goodness and is a must play for any fans of the Mega Man franchise. Expand

    Remaking games is limited this days , and Mega Man X MH is worth checking out. For starters and Mega Man X veterans this needs to be in your list now that the PSP doesn't have to many games. Expand

    Very fun game, challenging and frustrating, but worth it once you collect the parts and whomp on the bad guys. I had fun with this and would certainly recommend it to mega man fans. 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 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?

    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 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
