Summary: Capcom loves us. They must. What other company would shrug off the shackles of the "bigger, prettier, more complex" next-gen mantra and instead make a 100% old school 8-bit-style game instead? Mega Man 9 is Capcom's love letter to its fans. And that is pretty darn cool.
Pros: Pure old school goodness, Analog stick works just fine, don't worry about the d-pad, Catchy music, Store makes game a bit easier
Cons: Very difficult level design, Silly downloadable content
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.
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: 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.
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.
