Maken X was the very definition of overrated. I never understood why people hold it in such high regard. Same goes for Cannon Spike to a lesser extent.
It's just because it looks a bit 'manga' and is quite easy, the story is okay too I suppose. I consider it one of the worst games I ever played on the Dreamcast. Not because it was unplayable or anything, just the graphics and gameplay were so terminally dull. One of the most repetitive and shallow games I've ever played. A real chose to play, and no cut scene can get me to play something that crap.
