A Mega RPG Man?

I am a fan of the Mega Man franchise, as well as RPGs. So, I figured that it’s got to be as good a combination at Mario and RPGs! This game had its ups and downs... Definitely not as good at RPGs as our good friend Mario!



The game's plot line wasn't bad. It had the usual plot twist, which was some what predictable. The game was fun to play around with for the first four to five chapters. Afterwards, it became the same old same old. The only difficult parts of the chapters were the bosses. The rest of the game was easy, with no complicated puzzles at all. Another asinine aspect of the game was the inability to visibly see enemies before the encounter. The majority of RPGs today allow you to see enemies, incase you feel like avoiding a confrontation to complete an objective faster. Also, the enemy encounters seem to happen every five steps!



The best part about the game was the ability for characters to go into Hyper Mode, this changes the look of your character, as well as making the character more powerful. The higher the level, the more powerful the high mode attacks can be for certain characters. Another good aspect of the game was the detail of the main characters and bosses. I will also say that the controls are easy to use, and enemy weaknesses are fairly easy to discover.



The main reason I continued to play it till I beat it was to say I beat yet another Mega Man game. Other then that I wouldn’t suggest renting the game, unless you: like RPGs, enjoy playing Mega Man games, or are running out of games on your “Q”



Graphics: 7 <-- Lots of detail put into the Bosses and Attacks.
Sound: 6 <-- Same sayings after every battle, attack, or damage taken.
Controls: 7 <-- Easy controls just like most Mega Man games.
Fun Factor: 6 <-- The game may have its annoying factors with sound and nonvisible enemy encounters. But the game does have extra quests to complete after the main plot line is finished.

Mega Man X: Command Mission is the first RPG in the Mega Man series and it's likely the best Mega Man game in the last five years (not that it says much). Much of Command Mission is standard RPG fare: random battles, turn-based combat, increasingly deadly weapons, big weird boss battles, plot twists that artificially extend the game... but at least it all works pretty well. The story is, well, there to drive the game. Basically, X and his MAverick Hunters are hunting... well, Mavericks. They're staging a rebellion under Epsilon that's destabilizing just about everything and now they have to be stopped. The other Maverick Hunters, including Axl and Zero (basically other heroes that are not Mega Man) are joined by other replicons along the way and they level up from experience in random battles. The backtracking and random battles can really slow down the action. Turn-based combat also breaks up the game, but it's fast enough that you can blast through most battles. Cutscenes are more like moving character models staring into the distance at each other while the VO is on. Many other conversations are simply text, which I've come to expect from RPGs like this. Command Mission might seem short compared to other RPGs on the Gamecube like Skies of Arcadia and Tales of Symphonia. Of course by that comparison Command Mission falls short in several areas. But what it has going for it is extra content. You'll be trying to collect all the figurines, files and secret weapons in this game well after the main missions are over. More importantly, this game is fun while it lasts, making it a good RPG to play for a week or two. Although, you definitely want to play the two games mentioned above and Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door first as they are superior RPGs for the system.

sorry couldn't finish title, anyway this is a Megaman RPG and i am rather fond of it. your megaman, and you recruit 6 others to fight in turned based combat (yes you can get Zero).
ghraphics are good, voice acting is ok, one character says " you sonfa-" than a boss battle begins. (still chuckling from that one.)
any RPG gamer will find this worth playing as well as Megaman fans.
