Rockman X3's Title Screen
|Console||Sega Mega Drive/Genesis|
|Engine||Remake of Rockman X3's Engine|
OverviewEditThis game is likely a port of either the SNES or Saturn versions, although the borders on the sides of the screen suggest it's ported from the Saturn. Despite being a straight port, this game has many things missing from other versions, including the removal of Tunnel Rhino and Blast Hornet, as well as some stages leading to the wrong place, like Doppel's and X's stage leading to the intro stage instead. As well as this, all of the cutscenes from the original are missing and the rooms they take place in are either empty or replaced with a mini-boss. Some robot masters appear on the wrong stages, such as Blizzard Buffalo appearing at the end of the intro stage. Completing a stage doesn't give X any weaponry, and pausing the game doesn't bring up the weapon select screen. The game still has the possibility for the player to expand X's life meter by picking up hearts scattered across levels, but if the player picks one up with an already full health bar, the game will crash.
The graphics are mostly ported from the original game, although strangely the armor is taken from the first Rockman X. There are also many graphical glitches, including an obvious black space at one point in the background of the intro stage. The music is also taken from the original, although poorly ported to the Mega Drive's weaker hardware. As well as this, some stages use the wrong music. The sound effects are also badly remade from the original game.
