Mega Man 9

Game Over Online
30 October 2015
  • 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.

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.

  • Summary: Shovel Knight is a love letter to classic 2D platformers of the 8-bit era, but then, so are a lot of other indie games these days. What makes Shovel Knight different is that it actually has a high level of polish and highly refined gameplay and doesn't just rely on its "2D retro oldschool indie with...

The 8-Bit Blue Bomber is Back!

8 November 2009
  • Excerpt: Being a medium for over a quarter of a century, and spending almost as much time in the mainstream, it should be no surprise that the video game industry has been influenced by feelings of nostalgia. It helps decent games sell like hotcakes (see Super Smash Bros.
  • 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

  • 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.

Game Over Online
30 October 2008
  • 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.
