|Title: Mega Man X 3

Reviewer: Shane Skekel
Synopsis: If you thought that this game would be better on the Playstation, THINK AGAIN! This is one of the best games on the Super NES and I will tell you why:
1. The graphics kick ass! Who needs crappy pre-rendered cut-scenes to have spectacular visuals? The wire frames used in the game are very well done, as well as the layering. Did I mention that the animation is better than in those of the 32-bit?
2. The gameplay is more non-linear than in X1 & X2
plus, Vile ('Vava in the Japanese version) is back and has his own stage.
3. The music is good, but could have been better. The sound effects, however, kick ass.
4. Here's the story (don't read unless you have played this game): Dr. Doppler develops a Neuro-computer that pacifies the mavericks, but some became unstable and cause chaos. That's where MMX and the too-popular-for-his-own-good Zero come in.
This game is spectacular title for the Super Nintendo. It is nowhere near Donkey Kong Country 1, DKC 2, DKC 3, Star Ocean (the Sequels sucked) and Sailor Moon R in terms of over all performance,
but it beats the PS version in that category.
Best Cheats: There is a Gold armor upgrade in the first Doppler stage (or third) that gives all the chips(make sure
you didn't get any while killing the mavericks), but I ain't telling you how to get this for you'll
have to find out for yourself.
