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 day. To complete a game on my own was a nearly unbeatable task, and soon I felt that I had found my downfall in this evil yet enticing game.
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.

for an update; however, a game of this caliber deserves more than your
standard graphical upgrade.
