Though it would work much better with a controller than with the touch controls it offers, this is still a love letter to this iconic sci-fi shooter series. In Mega Man X Dive, you play a fan of the Mega Man X games who's been sucked into the system so you can help fix some glitches and thus save this series from destruction. Which is why you get to play levels from earlier games... though they are sometimes a little different than you remember. You still have to run and jump to get from one gunfight to another, and some of those gunfights get rather complicated, especially when your enemies are some big boss who'd make Godzilla nervous.

What's different is how your weapons work. And not just because you can earn currency you earn by playing and beating missions, which you can then use to upgrade your weapons. No, it's more that you don't have an endless supply of ammo. Instead, you have a limited amount for every weapon, though your supply does recharge, and rather quickly (though more so in the case of your normal weapon; your special ones take longer). But just using those weapons is an even bigger issue. While the touch controls work fine, none of the four options are as intuitive as a good old controller. While this won't work for purists, or for people looking to take Mr. Rockman on the road, players not looking for the same old game will find Mega Man X Dive is a lovely time.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
