Mega Man 9 (XBLA)

Game Boyz
23 June 2011
  • Excerpt: Mega Man 9 is a brand new game in the series. The trick is that unlike Capcom's recent digital downloads; this isn't a modernized sequel or remake. It is absolutely undeniably an 8-bit Mega Man game, right down to the crunchy music, chunky colorful sprites and extremely basic controls. Capcom has made this game for all the consoles and their respective downloadable services including WiiWare (Wii), the PS Network (PS3) and XBLA (Xbox 360).

The 8-Bit Blue Bomber is Back!

GameCritics.com
6 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Finally figuring out how to use the Black Hole Bomb correctly! It took me way too long...
  • Pros: Playing a game that was designed correctly to be a true challenge.
  • Cons: I miss the slide feature of later Mega Man games (and a downloadable character does not count!)

Mega Man 9 Review

VideoGamer.com
11 July 2009
  • 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. Mega Man 9, a brand new Mega Man game developed by Inti Creates and published as a downloadable title by Capcom over Xbox LIVE, PSN and WiiWare, is the hardest game I can ever remember playing.

Mega Man 9

Game Over Online
30 October 2008
  • Excerpt: It's weird how this one turned out. Back in the NES's heyday, there were a lot of series that were notoriously hard: Castlevania III springs to mind, for example, as well as most of the Konami shooters like Life Force or Contra . Mega Man wasn't one of them, though. The original game is difficult, yeah, especially Iceman's stage and a couple of the boss fights in Dr. Wily's level.

Mega Man 2 was laughably easy, though, and the rest of the games in the original series came in somewhere between those two extremes. It's weird how this one turned out.

8 October 2008
  • Excerpt: This is a game where your skills start out rusty, yet your experience as you improve goes from “pretty good but wow is this game hard” to “I can't believe I used to have trouble with that!
