Product Details:

Mega Man X8 is a high speed action game which challenges players to jump and shoot their way through a variety of imaginative stages. The game stars Mega Man and his allies, Zero and Axl, in a new adventure packed with more features, depth and variety than the series has ever seen.

The evil Sigma had started a war of fury on Earth in an attempt to annihilate the human race. Mega Man X8 begins after the fall out of this battle, which left the planet in shambles, and forced humans to look for a new home.

In an effort to rebuild, a new generation of robot Reploids was built by the earth's people in order to ready the moon for colonization. This new group possessed advanced capabilities, including the ability to copy other Reploids. Unfortunately, Sigma had corrupted them with his sinister DNA mark in an attempt to make them turn on humans. Now Mega Man X, Zero and Axl must head to the moon for an outer space mission to defeat the enemy and save mankind.

Mega Man X8 provides a greater degree of freedom and variety than ever before. Players are able to complete the stages in any order and as often as they like. Each area is designed to help build and acquire skills that will be used to advance through the game. Players must successfully jump, attack,and utilize new weapons to open up additional areas and conquer each challenge.

Twelve stages provide vast variety in gameplay and settings from 3D depth-scrolling space stations to side-scrolling lunar colonies and even vehicle based missions, each with their own objectives. Replay is encouraged through "intermission" sub quests that provide different objectives for already-cleared stages to provide added depth and help players hone skills.
