Mega Man Xtreme feels like a condensed handheld version of Mega Man X and X2. Almost all of the levels, bosses, and weapons are ripped from these two games and squeezed into the Gameboy Color. It is a relatively admirable job, with the faux 16-bit art-style and simplified music being an enjoyable treat. However, the zoomed-in focus and limited buttons make the game awkward. Its biggest weakness is that it is obsolete. When you can play X and X2 on the go through the Mega Man X Legacy Collection, there is no need for an inferior handheld “greatest hits” compilation.
