Summary: I'm old enough to have played Mega Man games since the original, so I thought I'd love this. The magic is gone for me with this game. It's not even that it's too hard, but it's certainly too cruel. I can learn to complete most of the levels without taking much damage, but they overuse spikes. It's just frustrating to play a level perfectly only to have to make an awkward jump and end up dead.
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: 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 that you have to wait, count to 2, jump shoot, wait, count to 2, jump shoot.
Summary: Exceeds expectations in good and bad ways. Graphics are 8-bit awesomeness with sound to match. Difficulty is much tougher than the tough mode of Mega Man 2 on the NES, some of the obstacles are real head-scratchers. It's very much aimed at a specific kind of gamer, and you already know if this is you.
