Summary: Insultingly underrated. Capcom made one of the smartest moves I've ever seen with their work on Mega Man 9! Not only does it capture everything that's great about the Classic Series, but they also managed to make it fresh and fun for newcomers. The game is the best nostalgic field trip a guy could ever ask for and it's really sad that some people don't appreciate the greatness that is t his game.
Summary: OMG! I have so much power! Barelyu anyone's reviewd this! Okay MM9.... i've played you so many times. But, you go out of your way to make people hate you. And you deserved to be hated. Thank you for a few hours of kinda-fun. Un thankyou for creating a game, on purpose, that I couldn't progress. You should've been MM10 and give me a mode that at least let's me play the game., That game get's a 9.
Summary: This is a must have for anyone who remembers the good old 8-bit era. The game plays very well without framerate issues or screen writing problems from the old NES days. It feels like what the game creators wanted to make then, but obviously lacked the system resources to do. The difficulty is still there, too - it has not been dumbed down for the current generation of gamers. The game will be very nostalgic because it feels and plays exactly like any 8-bit Mega Man.
Summary: Took the lame route and played MM10 first because of the Easy Mode. Mistake. The real magic of Mega Man 9 is not only in the revival of pitch perfect 8-bit era designs and sounds, but in the revival of perseverance in gaming. Being born in 1988 I never got to experience challenging 80's era games the way they were meant to be played.
Summary: It was great that mega man returned old school but that doesn't give it an excuse that the story had to be so dull and repetitive. The music and the stages were great but there was limited game options. It wasted 4 hours of my life and I haven't even finished it yet. I would've gave it 7 if it came with the warning: THIS GAME CAN BE EXTREMELY BORING! YOU CAN ONLY PLAY THIS GAME IF YOU DO N OT HAVE A LIFE!
Summary: This is has all that is needed to make a great game. Gameplay = 10/10 Story = 9/10 (Classic Megaman story, Love it!) Graphics = 10/10 (They managed to do EXACTLY what they were aiming for) Replayability = 9/10 (10/10 compared to other MM games, 8/10 compared to modern games) The little bonus = Nr. 1. It's a Megaman game! (FINALLY) Nr. 2. Who did NOT take something around your arm and pretend it was a gun when you were a kid? WHO? No one, that's who.
Summary: I'm sorry, but this game is completely sub-par. If this is really what the original Mega Man was so applauded for, the original apparently stunk too. I'll excuse people who liked the original though, they didn't know better at the time. But in this day and age, it is ridiculous for such a poorly designed, tiny game to be so popular. This trades in advanced AI for cannons th at you have to wait, count to 2, jump shoot, wait, count to 2, jump shoot.
