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.
Conclusion: However, it is not the reason to play the game. Final verdict If you are looking for a badge of honor for your gamercard, this is it. You will likely gain a lot of respect if you can 100% this game. If you frustrate easy when playing games, I recommend you stay away.
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.

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!)
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.
Conclusion: Despite its $9.99 price tag, (plus $4.99 for all of the downloadable content and add-ons) this game should not be purchased lightly. It truly separates the men from the boys. You've been warned.
Excerpt: " Megaman " is a cult Capcom 2D platform character who first appeared many years ago on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and such was it’s success that numerous sequels and spin offs have appeared across various systems.
Excerpt: 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.
