Excerpt: The screen's a nonsensical mess of pixels. I rub my stinging eyes with the hope that some coherency will return to my blurred vision. Just how long have I been playing anyway? I squint at the pause menu. One life left. Wiping my sweaty hands on my jeans, I re-adjust my grip on the controller.
Summary: Mega Man has been saving the world from evil robots for more than 20 years. He has snatched weapons from dozens of fallen bosses, leaped theatrically through more locked doors than is worth keeping track of, and used his dog Rush as a stepstool countless times.
Pros: Challenging action without feeling cheap, Bosses are satisfying to conquer, Proto Man is an enjoyable alternative to Mega Man, Challenges provide additional obstacles to overcome, Online leaderboards allow you to watch the best players’ runs
Cons: Some of the boss designs are just dumb, Uninspired soundtrack
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is In 2008 Capcom and Inti-Create surprised the gaming world when they released Mega Man 9 (their first of the series on current-gen consoles). I say “surprised” because the game was made to look and play exactly like the old NES 8-bit Mega Mans and sported the same...
Summary: If nothing else Mega Man 10 is an ode to those lazy evenings spent as a youth, plugging away at the eight villains to try and learn what their patterns of attack were and how to best get through their levels.
Excerpt: Mega Man’s return to 8-bit has been quite the favorable one. Mega Man 9 brought the franchise back to its NES roots, garnering fan praise and critical appreciation; it seemed to be the right move.
Excerpt: When Mega Man 9 was first revealed, the gaming community was left in shock due to the 8-bit design. After the game was released, it was clear that going old-school was more than just a gimmick. For the first time in years, fans were given one of the best entries in the Mega Man series.
Conclusion: Here we go again. A bunch of robots are running wild, which has something to do with the robot virus Roboenza. Dr. Wily is supposed to be innocent this time, Capcom tells us, but wise from experience I know that the last boss will be the good old doctor anyway.
Pros: Awesome boss-fights, sweet graphics, challenging, multiple game modes
Conclusion: Un nouvel épisode 8 bits très convaincant de Mega Man. Le titre est plus profond que son prédécesseur (plus difficile aussi) et promet une aventure de longue haleine. Les fans de la saga seront ravis.
Summary: Toen ik nog een klein jongetje was, was ik de trotse bezitter van een Nintendo Entertainment System. Mijn favoriete games waren natuurlijk de Super Mario Bros games en … Mega Man. Ik was dan ook weer zo blij als een kind, dat ik weer aan de slag kon met 1 van mijn oude game helden in Mega Man 10.
