Summary: It's Mega Man! The Mega Man I remember from my childhood! I find it absolutely extraordinary that Capcom would actually make the sequel to the major disappointment that is Mega Man 8 and totally take us back to the NES days with the retro design.
Summary: I'm old enough to have played Mega Man games since the original, so I thought I'd love this. The magic is gone for me with this game. It's not even that it's too hard, but it's certainly too cruel. I can learn to complete most of the levels without taking much damage, but they overuse spikes.
Summary: This is a must have for anyone who remembers the good old 8-bit era. The game plays very well without framerate issues or screen writing problems from the old NES days. It feels like what the game creators wanted to make then, but obviously lacked the system resources to do.

Summary: Well, it has been over a decade since Mega Man 8 was out, and Capcom has FINALLY decided to release a sequel! Is it well worth the wait, though? Well, I think it's safe to say so. Mega Man 9 is a game that takes us Mega Man fans back to the basics...literally.
Summary: I know my video game blogs are the least read, but I actually do have people asking me to review them from time to time. I just think its good to talk about a variety of topics so that people know I can have a life beyond politics.
Summary: Took the lame route and played MM10 first because of the Easy Mode. Mistake. The real magic of Mega Man 9 is not only in the revival of pitch perfect 8-bit era designs and sounds, but in the revival of perseverance in gaming.
Summary: Mega Man 9 is just as you remember your Mega Man games from the NES. Same graphics, same sounds, same controls. A bit harder though, perhaps to cater to it's now older audience. Just like the other Mega Man games, repetition and memorization is the key to beat it.
