  • Excerpt: I'm sure Mega Man, the cult NES 2D action platformer, wasn't this hard back in the day. I remember actually enjoying Mega Man 2 and 3 in the early nineties. And actually being able to get past the first few screens. Some things change, and some things stay the same, as they say.

  • Summary: It's been 12 years since the last proper Mega Man game was released and even longer since the classic 8-bit days of the blue bomber, but that hasn't stopped Capcom from bringing its mascot back in this retro revival.
  • Pros: Incredibly challenging but rewarding gameplay, Retro graphics appeal to old-school series fans and 8-bit aficionados, Online leaderboards
  • Cons: Buying extra difficulty settings is ultra lame

  • Conclusion: Shameless and self-sustained, Mega Man 9 forgoes all the glitz and glamour in favor of a barebones nostalgic production indistinguishable from its 1980s brethren. The simplistic gameplay is leveraged to produce wickedly-challenging environments and battles, and it’s delightfully unforgiving.

  • Excerpt: Mega Man is finally back, and it is a legitimate sequel to the series. Mega Man 9 is exactly what fans of the series have been waiting for. Those fans may not have been the most patient, as they waded through Mega Man X games, Mega Man Battle Network and more.
