Seems cool, and this time Capcom isn't *totally* ignoring Nintendo. 3DS version confirmed! (but coming after the PC/XB1/PS4 release)

@Stephen I suppose, but 2 is averaging like almost a full 12 points higher here (9.3 to 8.1ish.)

Some people like 1 (apparently I like it the most) but a lot are sort of eh or meh on it too. 2 gets nearly universal praise.

While I'm a sucker for crisp HD pixels like in Mario Maker, that is a really interesting approach.

I really like Mega Man 1 too. Mainly for the innovation factor, although I'd still rate 2 and 3 (and 9) higher.


Pretty cool.

No one should play the original Mega Man nowadays. If you MUST play the first game, at least play the Powered Up! version and save yourself the frustration.

Of course, that's a PSP exclusive. That's only on UMD - you can't download it off the PS Store. Hmmm.

I think the original Mega Man is still the most challenging of the bunch, so it can be worthwhile for that reason if that's what someone's looking for. It's party because there are no energy tanks or passwords, though I also feel like the weapons aren't as ridiculously powerful as they are in subsequent games (here's looking at you, Metal Blade). Plus, no slide and no charge buster. I also like how it has a scoring system, for some reason.

I think Mega Man 1 is similar enough to its sequels that if someone didn't like it at all, it seems unlikely the rest would change that person's mind.

@Zero Looks like Mega Man X4 is indisputably the best Mega Man game.

Thanks for pointing me to a game I have played and haven't rated!

Also it's nowhere near the top now because that game was mediocre.

Hm, if I give it a 10 then it still won't be back on top. Oh well, you win... for now.

@Mop it up
Definitely agree with this post! I think MM1 actually does a good job at making your sub-weapons useful but not overpowered. MM2's Metal Blades were OP, but for most of the other games, I just stick with the Mega Buster except for boss weaknesses.

Except MM9. MM9's weapon set was the best in the series!

Oh also, thanks for reminding me to knock X4 down a few pegs, myself. It's not bad, but it's a step down from the SNES games.

You can fill in the blank with just about anything, and it'd be true. But yes, the weapons in MM9 were easily the best in the series. I played through the game with each of the eight weapons exclusively, and it was not only feasible to do so*, but really fun and different with each.

As for Mega Man 1, it's a solid game, but way tougher than even the very tough 2 and 3, in cheaper ways than usual. It's worth playing, but I wouldn't introduce someone to the NES games with it. Actually, for beginners I'd consider Mega Man 5 first, since it's the easiest.

*Tornado Blow and Black Hole Bomb aside, but even those didn't require as much switching as I thought, considering their energy requirements

Quit trying to dispute the indisputable!

I remember another reason I found MM1 tough, and it's the robots. I feel like their movements are more random than they are in the sequels (except MM2, that has some random ones too), so they are more about quick reflexes than they are learning patterns. Starting with MM3, the robots were more predictable and sometimes more simple. I guess that also means there may be a little luck involved with getting through them unscathed, which some people may not appreciate.

My fave weapon set is probably MM4. Probably because it fixed a lot of 2's weapons and made them usable/good.

Simply awesome game, my personal favorite Mega Man title.

That I no longer have for some reason.... guess I sold it at some point. Stupid stupid stupid!

Some second-hand stores may still have the UMD. I've even seen a "double-pack" version that has both Powered Up! and Maverick Hunter X on the same disc.

But yeah, Powered Up is pretty awesome. I like the fact that Mighty No. 9 looks so similar in comparison.

The double pack was cool but at one time I had both UMDs pristine in their cases, should have never got rid of them!

Basically never sell games, it's not worth it. Unless they suck, like King Kong for DS, sell that one.

I just don't get how the game is going to look if not pixel perfect. Is it going to look fuzzy on purpose or something?

I may get this just for the possibility of getting Mega Man 9 on my 3DS.

Even if it is DLC.

New artwork emerges! Looks cool, IMO! What do you guys think?

Oh hell yeah can I get that artwork as wall scrolls or something. They look kickass.

Unlike probably most of you, I haven't already played these games a million times, so I'll probably pick it up on Steam. That is some awesome artwork.

@GameDadGrant I like it. I tend to prefer the more chubby classic designs, like you'd see on the Japanese boxart, but these are cool action shots. I especially like the attention to detail of the backgrounds.
