  • Excerpt: By Kevin "Berserker" Hall Player(s): 1 Memory: 89MB (full game), 64KB (save data) Extra Features: Download Content The original premiere of Mega Man on the NES is still one of the most classic and memorable 8-bit games even today. The Blue Bomber went on to spawn six sequels on the NES alone.

  • 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. It's weird how this one turned out.

Game Over Online

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Summary: In terms of gaming generations I (like many others) come from a time of legend in the console industry. A time when the SEGA Master System, NES, SNES and Megadrive reigned supreme and many of us stayed up way past our bed times beating the likes of A Link to the Past or Flashback. In these times of gaming legend, whilst many developers were still looking for inspiration, a genre was forged that would change the landscape of the industry forever.
  • Pros: Great combat system, Amazing gameplay, Well balanced
  • Cons: Difficulty spikes, Some character designs are borderline ridiculous, Very hardcore

  • Conclusion: Idén är lika vansinnig som genial. Att göra ett nytt 8 bitars-spel med Mega Man trots att tekniken pensionerades för närmare 20 år sedan. Men visst, det var då Mega Man var som allra bäst, något som faktiskt lyser igenom även i Mega Man 9 . Allt är som vi minns det. Åtta robotar som kan tacklas i vilken ordning som helst. Gruvligt svåra banor. Bossar som det gäller att välja rätt vapen på. Medryckande musik. Underbart vacker pixelgrafik.
  • Pros: Perfekt spelkontroll, vacker pixelgrafik, grym musik, smarta banor, coola bossfighter
  • Cons: Kompromisslöst supersvårt
