Conclusion: If you’re a die hard Mega Man fun, you’ll probably enjoy this game despite the kiddy appearance. If you’re a retro-purist that despises remakes of classic games that water down certain aspects of the game, then avoid this.
Excerpt: In 1987, my frustration level was pushed into the red by a game whose hero was a little blue man with a cannon fixed to his arm. The idea of Mega Man was great, the style was very catching, and the enemies were fun to destroy, but the difficulty is something that has always trumped me, even to this...
Excerpt: Mega Man , the robotic blue bomber, is a heroic lil' dude who was created by Dr. Light to be all helpful and friendly. Then the evil Dr. Wily steals a bunch of robots and makes them evil. Jerk. Now it's up to you to save the day by clobbering the bad guy robots in this video game for the Sony PSP !
Summary: is an utterly brilliant game. There are some slight slow down issues, and the game might be a bit too hard for some gamers. If you can look past that though, you've got one of the most brilliant games of 2006. If you own a PSP, do yourself and your system and give this one a play.
Excerpt: Much like Mega Man Maverick Hunter X , Mega Man: Powered Up has received an overhaul in nearly every aspect. The most noticeable is, of course, the graphics – which sport a super deformed, “kiddie” look.
Conclusion: The real mileage for the game begins in the other two modes: Challenge and Construction. Challenge mode consists of one hundred assorted tasks (twenty for Megaman, ten for each of the eight robot masters).
Excerpt: Capcom used the underlying "run, jump, and shoot" design from the NES game as a base to build the PSP game, which features new level layouts, modern high-resolution graphics, and story scenes with spoken dialogue.
