Excerpt: 1991 called. He wants his game back. All kidding aside, Mega Man 9 will go down in the video game history books as a tried-and-true Mega Man game. For me and many other gamers that are in their late to mid twenties, this game will bring back a flood of great memories from the hard-as-nails game play to the can’t-get-that-song-out-of-your-head soundtrack.
Pros: pure nostalgia, great music, nice animations, cheap price.
Cons: very difficult, actually short game when you look at it.
Conclusion: Chances are those who already decided to download Mega Man 9 didn't need this review. Longtime fans of the series need no incentive. If, however, you are new to the games or just wanted to hear more about it before committing\, Mega Man 9 is easily worth the $10 investment for anyone who likes a solid, old-school action game. Besides being a great throwback to the original games, 9 really succeeds for being challenging, creative, and engaging.
Excerpt: Mega Man 9 is really hard. It is important to stress this at the outset of this review. Don't labour under any misapprehensions, and make no mistake, Mega Man 9 will punish you in the same way that many 8-bit titles did back in the heyday of the Nintendo Entertainment System, and for many, this will be a great thing.
