Console: Super Nintendo
X2 features a slightly darker storyline than the original game, plus a host of new gadgets, moves, and collectibles. Your character can collect life extensions, reserve energy tanks, and obtain upgrades to armor, plus other new abilities. However, perhaps the main change is in the addition of special hidden bosses that affect your game ending when defeated. The Mega Man X game was a refreshing change to the Mega Man series. Though not a great deal was changed between X and X2, there’s enough new content to keep you busy. However, some review authorities complain of more basic set pieces and a less-catchy soundtrack compared to Mega Man X.
