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: 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.
Summary: Exceeds expectations in good and bad ways. Graphics are 8-bit awesomeness with sound to match. Difficulty is much tougher than the tough mode of Mega Man 2 on the NES, some of the obstacles are real head-scratchers.
