  • Excerpt: The Mega Man series is among the most storied in video games. He may not be as recognizable to non-gamers as Mario, Sonic or even a more recent hero in Master Chief, but for the past twenty years, he has developed a large hardcore following. That following has remained loyal through over ten years of abysmal attempts at bringing Mega Man into the 3D era. That's why Capcom finally threw in the towel.

Mega Man 9

Nintendo World Report

  • Summary: You are not prepared.
  • Pros: Achievements extend the life of the game, Awesome graphics, sound, and atmosphere, DLC is always welcome, Incredible level design and novel ideas
  • Cons: Achievements don't mean as much on the Wii, Brutal difficulty potentially eclipses that of the original game, Oddly enough, the storyline detracts from the experience

Mega Man 9

Digital Chumps

  • 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. This is a game supported exclusively by its mechanics, challenge, and creative level design, and by that measure it is a great success.

  • Excerpt: Every month, we get countless letters from readers and see many of our website's forum members making the same argument: Wii games are far too easy now and there aren't enough games to satisfy 'hardcore' gamers. Well, here's an opportunity for those people to put their Wii Points where their mouth is, because Mega Man 9 is as hardcore as it gets.

  • Conclusion: Capcom hatte mit der Ankündigung von Mega Man 9 sehr, sehr hohe Erwartungen geschürt und versprochen, dass Old-School-Fans hier die Vollbedienung bekämen. Und DAS war etwas, was Videospiel-Fans, die, wie ich, mit diesem Zeug aufgewachsen sind, sich schon lange wünschten. Und es ist einfach nicht zu leugnen: Capcom hat zu 100% sein Versprechen gehalten! Und sogar noch mehr! Capcom hat sich nicht auf Kompromisse eingelassen.

  • Conclusion: Capcom rockt! Ich sollte am besten höchst persönlich zu den Herren der Schöpfung gehen und ihnen die Füße dafür küssen, dass sie so ein kleines, aber feines Meisterwerk gezaubert haben. Dabei war ich einer derjenigen, der sich noch darüber moniert hatte damals, dass ein neues Mega Man nicht mit einer frischen Sprite-Grafik erscheint. Aber all meine Zweifel sind weggeblasen seitdem ich in den Genuss gekommen bin, Mega Man 9 zu zocken.
