The game was originally released for the PlayStation 2 on December 7, 2004 in North America before it was later released in Europe on February 11, 2005, and in Japan on March 10, 2005. The PC version was also released in Japan the same day the PlayStation 2 version was released, and unlike the PC port of Rockman X7, the PC port of Mega Man X8 was developed in-house, featuring support for higher resolutions, enhanced 3D audio, and some other improvements and bugfixes compared to the North American PlayStation 2 release. It is, however, limited in terms of video settings and only supports 4:3 resolutions. The PC version was also not released physically in North America.
In the playable character model folder of the PC version of Mega Man X8, there is a file called "PL_BOKO" containing an unused version of the Guardroid enemy, which resembles a ninja. It does not seem to have an unique ability aside from the normal dash, and any projectiles it might have been able to shoot are not in the game's files.
Like previous Mega Man titles, X8 features a number of unusual boss characters whose levels can be attempted in any order once you've successfully negotiated the mandatory first mission. The bosses you'll be facing in Mega Man X8 are as follows: Optic Sunflower, Bamboo Pandamonium, Gravity Antonion, Earthrock Trilobite, Avalanche Yeti, Gigavolt Man-O-War, Dark Mantis, and Burn Rooster. The different bosses' appearances and attack patterns are every bit as varied as their names suggest, and we found that some of them were a lot easier to defeat once we'd obtained weapons from other bosses. It's not just the bosses themselves who are incredibly varied, by the way--the levels you'll have to negotiate en route to your confrontations with them are perhaps the most diverse to appear in a Mega Man title to date.
With its mostly classic gameplay and polished visuals, Mega Man X8 promises to be a welcome addition to the long-running series. It's unfortunate that the titular character feels underpowered next to his colleagues, but purists will surely relish the extra challenge that playing with the blue bomber represents. Expect a full review of Mega Man X8 soon.

« View full review »Although Mega Man X8 Download free Full Version uses 3D graphics like Mega Man X7, the development team chose not to opt for 3D gameplay. The game was met with a positive critical reception.
The player starts the game with access to three playable characters: X, a shooter able to wear multiple armors that can be found hidden in the stages; Axl, a shooter able to transform into enemies; and Zero, a sword fighter able to double jump. Two characters can be selected to go to a stage, while a navigator can be assigned to assist the player. Depending on the navigator's qualities, the character will be informed about the stages' hidden paths or bosses. In every stage, the characters can obtain items that can be used in a shop to buy upgrades. The three navigators can also be unlocked as the playable characters by buying chips after completing the game in the Normal or Hard levels or entering the code in the title screen of the PlayStation 2 version.
Mega Man X8 Game free Download for PC Full Version was developed by Capcom Production Studio 1. The game's direct predecessor, Mega Man X7, was the first entry in the Mega Man X series to feature full 3D graphics, as well as 3D gameplay. However, as stated by Capcom producer and original Mega Man illustrator Keiji Inafune, the development team chose not to pursue 3D gameplay for Mega Man X8 simply because of its graphical style. Inafune himself was not involved in the production of Mega Man X8, although the game's art designers did consult with him before changing the overall style of the characters. The game's main illustrator, Tatsuya Yoshikawa, was responsible for designing the protagonists, the Maverick bosses, and the newer ancillary cast. Yoshikawa took into account what the characters may resemble if they were toys, and even imitated the joints of Revoltech figures.
We did it everyone, we made it to the end of the Mega Mega Man X Marathon, making this my 18th Mega Man review! What a ride it has been. I was fully intending on moving onto another series of Mega Man games, but needless to say, I am a little bit burned out. Mega Man will return, but not for a little while. In the meantime, feel free to check out my other marathons (Castlevania springs to mind), and look forward to my next marathon which should be starting soon. Spoiler, it is about a residence that may, or may not, be full of evil.
