    Easily one of the greatest games ever released. One of the cream of the crop releases on the Super Nintendo drops into the Wii Virtual ConsoleEasily one of the greatest games ever released. One of the cream of the crop releases on the Super Nintendo drops into the Wii Virtual Console at long last. Memorable characters, good story, fantastic level design, music, solid graphics for its time and very enjoyable boss fights. The length of available items to upgrade life and armor are great. Defeating a boss (like in classic Mega Man fashion) bestows upon you their special weapon. There is also a hidden Street Fighter Easter Egg that is the most powerful weapon in the game. Truly a must buy from the Virtual Console service on Wii. Collapse

The original Mega Man X revitalized a stagnating franchise and was so well crafted in every way.

    Gameplay
    Mega Man X took the already great formula from the original 8-bit Mega Man games and perfected it by adding new gameplay mechanics and upgrades to find. The upgrades you can find are heart containers to increase your maximum health, sub-tanks to help refill your health in case of an emergency, and armour uprgrades that give you new abilities such as dashing and a super charge to your X buster. The new wall jumping mechanic adds more strategy and versatility to the game. Like the previous games, Mega Man X is challenging but never in an unfair way and the X series as a whole is even more tough to master than the classic series. The level design is also good but with an added twist where some stages are made harder or easier (and in some cases the only way to get an upgrade) depending on which order you defeat the bosses.

    Story
    Mega Man X retains the typical Mega Man story structure; defeat 8 bosses and then move on to the final castle to defeat the big bad. However, Mega Man X has a more interesting backstory involving androids created as sentient beings who are vulnerable to breaking the 3 laws of robotics and go "maverick" while X was the first to possess free will and the choice to live as good or evil. Throughout the X series, the stories never achieve true depth or get much attention but as I said are still more interesting than the classic series while also being darker and more mature.

    Sound
    The soundtrack of the original Mega Man X is probably my favourite video game soundtrack of all time. Everything from the title screen to the end credits, the music is great to listen to. The only gripe I have about the music is the theme that plays during the last phase of the final boss. I understand that they were going for something intense and atmospheric but I feel that it's rather boring for a final boss theme and sounds more like the introduction music to a final boss. The sound effects are also great and you can even listen to every music track and sound effect in the game in the options menu.

    Visuals
    I always loved the look of the 16-bit X games and Mega Man X definitely had some good sprite work. The game runs well aside from a slight stutter every couple of seconds (I'm not sure whether this is only in the Wii version) but most people probably won't notice and it can be ignored.

    Mega Man X is a game that I still love to play even today and I will continue to love it in the future. In my opinion it is the gold standard of platforming games and is one of the finest video games ever made.

This isThis is probably one of the few games that I've played were it's near impossible for me to come up with a flaw without nitpicking. This is definately on the top 3 of my favorite video games of all time.
    The story is dark and epic
    The gameplay is so freaking fast paced
    The Mavericks and Sigma Stage fights are fun as hell
    The music is stellar
    The visuals have aged incredibly well
    It has enough collectables and easter eggs to add replayability
    The art style looks so epic
    Overall an amazing classic.

It is arguably one of my favorite Mega Man games. Game play is superb and damn well near perfect. It carries many of the aspects from the classic Mega Man, but replaces the slide with the dash which far more useful, and also introduces the wall slide, which allows you to climb walls. The visuals, animations and enemy designs are great and top notch. Controls are superbly tight and easy to learn. Unlike the classic games, you feel a sense of progression as you continue throughout the game and collect the heart tanks and armor upgrades. The story is more present, but the concept is much similar to the classic series. All the weapons are useful outside of the boss fights because you will need them to collect certain items or get past certain sections. The music is as good as ever, rivaling that of Mega Man 2. This time around, the enemy is competent. Sigma, the villain, is actually a challenge to face and his fortress is one of the hardest to progress, all the while building up to the final fight. Sigma is the kind of character you love to hate, much like Vergil is in Devil May Cry or Ganon from Legend of Zelda. Sigma is so well made that you want to fight him, you want to bring him down. It's not about beating the game, it's about taking down Sigma. Other great characters include Zero, who is easily one the best characters that Capcom has created because of how cool he is and about how he makes you want to strive to be just like him. The there is Vile. When you encounter him, he beats you easily, which sets up the game to make strive to be as good as Zero because Zero is the only who can beat Vile at the start. The game is incredibly fun to play and it's filled with many amazing boss fights and easily the most over powered special weapon. the overall game is amazing and is must own should you have a Nintendo console of some kind. Easily 9.4 out of 10 Expand

You will surely enjoy the game's amazing gameplay, design, and music despite having a few troubles here and there with the difficulty and some of the gameplay tidbits, regardless of that, this is one enjoyable experience you do not want to miss.
