Mega Man X6 is about as direct a continuation of Mega Man X5 as you could imagine, which isn’t great news for anyone who might have been expecting a fresh take on a deteriorating series. Level design continues to be frustrating and hunting for collectibles and upgrades more obtuse than ever. X6 does feature a more interesting arsenal than the previous game, but this does little to distract from the fact that some upgrades are locked behind rescuable reploids that can die before you get to them! The entire game is a slog only broken by reasonably tolerable boss fights.
