Always content to capitalize on their successes, Capcom quickly released a follow-up to Mega Man X with a very similar formula. X2 works in much the way its predecessor does but adds some new traversal mechanics to even further distance (heh) itself from the classic series. Air dashing is a lot of fun, although occasionally unwieldy. The arsenal of weaponry at X’s disposal is noticeably less impressive, though, and a series of annoying roaming bosses that pop up in random stages is a sore point. A less than memorable soundtrack also does it no favors. MMX2 is serviceable but nonessential.
