    If you never tried the original, the prospect of replaying entire levels over and over after dying at the boss is probably more than you'll put up with, but fans will appreciate the elegance of Hunter's simplicity. [Mar 2006, p.114]

    While MHX isn't a definitive reinvention of a classic along the lines of "Metroid: Zero Mission," it's a solid re-creation that's been given an exceptional audiovisual upgrade.

    For those faithfully dedicated to Mega Man, such affronts will be perfectly forgivable, but for anyone else Maverick Hunter X proves to be a pretty, if rather pedestrian first outing on Sony's handheld.
  4. Megaman is straightforward and the exact sort of game that works on PSP. Fast and simple, bright and colourful. [PSW]

    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. Full Review »

    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 Full Review »

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. Full Review »
