The Megadrive had certain limitations in color rendering, which could make games look sluggish and repetitive. But X smashed through those barriers, rendering sprites perfectly and making the quasi-futuristic world seem fluid and real. The game should be ranked higher, but loses points because it was crazy difficult thanks to bosses who were like an army of mini-Galactuses—Galacti?—out to rip you limb from limb. Still, when you combine the cutting edge graphics with the variety of vehicles and weapons at your disposal, you got one fantastic game.
