    Almost as good as the last entry into the series. Ability to slide & intro of the robot dog Rush make for nice addit

    Mega Man 3 makes a good attempt to surpass the efforts of Mega Man 2 and almost does it, but doesn't quite make it. This game introduces a new cast of 8 robot masters and introduces a new sliding abil...

    Little blue robot that never gives up! Instand classic and loads of fun that will keep you humming to the theme song.

    I love this series. Simply because the game is just so fun! The music in all the Mega Man games is upbeat and get's you going. In this game (just like the others) you have to go through a series of ro...

    My 1st impressions after beating Mega Man 3. This one is a little different from other Mega Mans, but just as good.

    After hearing so many good things about Mega Man 3, I have to say I'm a bit underwhelmed. It's not like its bad, it isn't. But I don't see the argument for "best Mega Man game" here. Sure you get to r...

    Very good!

    Rated on January 28, 2006 by packymaster

    This is an excellent game. This is most likely my second or third favorite Megaman game. The second Megaman game is my favorite one in the series, but this one is also very high on my favorites chart....

    After Wily sides with Light to create a law-enforcing robot, things only roll downhill.

    Upon being taken down twice by none other than Mega Man himself, the once-devious Dr. Wily finally decides to surrender his evil ways and form with Dr. Light in order to create a peace keeper named Ga...

    My favorite Mega Man game!

    Rated on January 26, 2010 by Don_Fireagle

    This was my first try at Mega Man games when I was young. It was hard as hell, but I persevered. I still remember the feeling when I finally finished this game. It felt like I had done the impossible....

    I don't know what is so special about this game

    Rated on February 15, 2010 by bomberfan14

    Many people consider this to be the best of the classic Mega Man game, but i honestly know why. For me it seems that it is "Mega Man 2 the outakes". GRAPHICS: The graphics are the same from the ot...

    This one is another definite play. It was the last NES Mega Man game to retain that good, solid feel.

    Rated on October 14, 2006 by Gamespotedpuppy

    Play Control: You can’t get much better than this. Well, you can (the slide is annoying to execute, sometimes) but close enough. Graphics: Like Mega Man 2, this game adds more detail to the backgroun...
