While I haven’t played the original Xtreme, I can tell you this: Xtreme 2 is a stunning and well-crafted Mega Man in its own right. It takes full advantage of the Game Boy Color’s capacities to deliver a colorful and entertaining title. Everything you would expect from the series is here: tight gameplay, demanding enemies and some killer tracks to enjoy while dying over and over again. You can even choose between X or Zero and complete the first of three necessary walkthroughs to reach the true ending and secret boss battle. A really enjoyable—and pretty hard at times—portable adventure.
