    Well, if you can't find this game anywhere, get an emulator!!!!!!!!! It's a very easy game, I got to the second to last boss in about two days off and on, the bosses are pretty easy, but once you g...

    It's fairly epic and fun but does not quite live up to the first.

    Megaman X was a ground-breaking achievement that delivered innovative and fun game play to the series and also evolved it. Megaman X2 doesn't exactly evolve the series but rather pushes it further by...

    Run-n-gun action on a dead platform.

    Rated on January 05, 2006 by Vul52988

    Every once and a while, I like to pop open the treasure chest of older games, and play one of them that hooked me in so long ago. Mega Man was perhaps the most influental game/anime in my life, so I ...

    One of the best.

    Megeman, any of them, are just great. But this one to me just stands out, I know, I know, its old, but that doesn't mean its not fun to play. This is probably one of the most fun games I have ever pla...

    Rated on January 26, 2006 by irsteve

    Im not puting X1 down or anything but I like this one over the other. The other was really good but this one goes just a little bit deeper with the story and gamestyle. I like the fact that there are ...

    My 1st impressions after beating MMX2. Tries to hard to make lighting strike twice, but it just can't be like MMX.

    Like its predecessor before it, X2 does a good job of imitating Mega Man X, but I don't find it as a good thing. The game is still harder starting out then it is finishing, and it still has all the co...

    While Mega Man X2 is still an attractive package, there are a few problems that drag the game down.

    Mega Man X, in all of it's awesomeness, made Mega Man... just better. The gameplay was faster, the graphics were prettier, and the gameplay was just a bit more solid. So of course, hopes for a sequel ...

    This game feels very simalar to X1. Not that it's a bad thing. X5 also felt very simalar to X4 and that was also good.

    Rated on January 29, 2006 by TAMKFan

    This is probably my second least favorite X game next to Mega Man X7. But don't get me wrong this ain't a bad game at all. Infact it's good. Remember how X1 had Fireball move that you could get? We...

    Mega Man X2 does exactly what the original does, just a lot better.

    Rated on February 25, 2013 by GSJones1994

    Highs: Great and challenging level design, secrets are very rewarding, controls and plays nicely, more dialogue than the first game, great music, cool wireframe effects given by the Cx4 chip, great st...
