Default Megaman X7... It broke me

SOOOOO I got the Megaman X Legacy Collection (1 and 2) for Christmas and I was so happy. Megaman X has always been some of the most enjoyable games for me growing up as a kid, as a teenager, and even now as an adult. I loved Megaman X, X2, X3, X4 X5, X6 and even X8. I had never played X7 until Christmas Day.

Holy fucking shit. This game. It broke me. I was a broken man.

For those of you who don't know Megaman X it was created by big man Keiji Inafune (the man who brought us EVERY Megaman game to ever exist save for X6-X8 iirc) and it has a simple formula in a side-scrolling action packed game

1. Run
2. Shoot
3. Jump

Those are all the "laws" of the game and for OVER 25 YEARS IT HAS WORKED (Megaman X came out in 1993).... Except for ONE game


Megaman X7

Dear God... This is possibly the worst game I have EVER played in my life. X is a pussy, Zero is slow and fucking clunky as shit and Axl is center stage and barely performs as a decent character.

This is going to be a long read and I'll do a TL;DR version HOWEVER stay with me here folks.

The game is called MEGAMAN X7

YES. MEGAMAN X. He should be the main character right? I mean, it's MEGAMAN X

WROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG


YOU CAN'T PLAY AS X UNLESS YOU DO ONE OF TWO THINGS: 1. Rescue 64 reploids or 2. Defeat all 8 mavericks (Da bad guys) and based on math there are 16 reploids to rescue so in order to play as the MAIN FUCKING CHARACTER (X) You have to beat 4 bosses (which are either hilariously easy or controller snapping hard). WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT

To it's credit Megaman X7 introduced the best system ever in the series to its date: The character swap. Low on health? NO PROBLEM! Swap out and the other guy has a nice full bar and is ready to go! This BARELY saves X7 from the cancer that it has. BARELY.

When X7 was announced back in 2002 or 2003 it was said that you could experience Megaman X in 3D. WOOHOO. Except not

The 3D sections are fucking broken as shit, SOMEHOW you move slower than you do in the 2D sections, and fixing the camera? Oh no problem just move the right sti-HAHAHAHA JK THAT'S FOR WEAPON CHANGING USE THE BUMPER BUTTONS.

WHAT?! What fucking sorcery is this? A game with 3D functions and you can't move the camera with the RIGHT STICK!? Bullshit! BULLSHIT!


Let's get back to those "laws" I mentioned earlier: Run, shoot, and jump. MEGAMAN X7 THROWS THAT SHIT OUT THE WINDOW AND GIVES YOU AN AUTOMATIC TARGETING SYSTEM

This would be good...IF IT WORKED Sadly your brand new fucking system has a smaller attention span than a fucking goldfish when multiple enemies are in sight and swaps constantly so it takes twice as long to kill simple enemies.

and the BIGGEST issue: The voice acting. Holy fuck. The game was bad and broke me as a lover of the Megaman X series but HOLY SHIT.

X sounds like a pussy-whipped bitch looking for social justice asking to stop the violence (LET'S NOT FORGET HE HAS KILLED THOUSANDS OF REPLOIDS AT THIS POINT. JUST SEE X TO X6 TO SEE HIS TRACK RECORD). Zero sounds gruff but comes off as stale and boring and Axl sounds like a 9 year old boy who just realized he's a robot

All in all, if you're an achievement whore looking for those PS4 trophies of gamer points for the XBOX. I feel so sorry for you, really I do... Anyone else: This game will literally break you. I recommend a healthy dosage of alcohol before playing this game because you don't want to remember playing this.

TL;DR version: X is a whiny bitch, camera function is fucked, bosses are either way too easy or retardedly hard, and you should be drunk when playing this game

i got megaman 11 recently and was kind of disappointed but then I thought eh what do I really expect from a modern megaman game at this point... so it was actually not that bad.

The name of the game not being playable (if at all) reminds me of another series...

both X6 and X7 would be better served by not existing. both were made just to capitalize on the success of the prior games, basically, and they're just vastly worse than those, and rushed out the door

this game was supposedly made by like a team of 30 people, and it really shows. even the levels where you get to do something moderately interesting sounding, like drive a rocket car, are horrible and hate you for wanting to enjoy them

both X6's nightmare effects and Axl's abilities were done better in zero 4

could be worse though. it could be mn9

what i've seen of mm11 seems nice though. but i can't run it

I enjoyed the throw together of X6. The story is more about Alia than anyone else which I personally thought was needed because we were kinda just... given her.

It makes me feel better that without X6 or X7 I wouldn't have been able to play X8 which EVERYTHING got better. X8 is an example of going with the original formula that has given success for over 20 years

X7 made me feel ill

This. I forgot about this. Probably on purpose.

BURN TO THE BURN TO GROUND BURN TO THE GROUND X CAN YOU HE- BURN BURN TOTHEBURN BURN TO THE GROUND

Described above is basically what the audio is when fighting Flame Hyenard. You will wish you could burn to the ground after dealing with him.

BUT HEY! REMEMBER THAT YOU HAVE TO FIGHT ALL 8 BOSSES A SECOND TIME

It's pretty sad that x8 was overshadowed by how had x7 was. X8 was better than x4-6 in my opinion but no one gave it a chance.

X8 has such an amazing soundtrack, the voice acting is like 500% better and they reverted to the formula of success. Plus the stages are challenging and the boss fights are reasonably difficult if you don't have the weakness.

THAT is how Megaman X was designed. You get an advantage if you have the boss' weakness but it's still not easy to get the win.

Lumine is the exception with her "Paradise Lost" technique. If you panic during that you're fuckin' toast
