    Four words best sum up Mega Man 9 - way to go, Capcom!

    Rated on September 25, 2008 by 80s_Gamer

    Since the late 1980s, the Blue Bomber known as Mega Man has captured the hearts of players (and seemingly captured his arch nemesis Dr. Wily) time and again. The original series has spanned several sy...

    If You're A Long Time Fan Of The Classic Mega Man, This Game Is Necessary.

    Rated on September 25, 2008 by SSJ3X

    It seriously doesn't take a great story with unbelievable graphics and a complex control scheme to make a rare gem of video gaming. All you have to do sometimes, is to go back to the basics, which Cap...

    Nostalgia reigns supreme in a new Mega Man side-scroller that harkens back to the good 'ole days.

    Rated on September 26, 2008 by arkadycole

    Capcom took a bit of a gamble releasing a new Mega Man game in the old 8-bit style, but it has surely paid off in Mega Man 9, a downloadable title for WiiWare. This game is beautifully executed in a...

    A nostalgia filled adventure that shows us all that next gen isn't always best gen!

    I remember when I was a kid, going to the mall on my birthday and asking my mom to buy me Mega Man 2 for the NES. A couple days before, I had gone to my cousin's and we had rented the original Mega Ma...

    The same old Mega Man

    Rated on September 28, 2008 by Toro_Nev

    Well, I just bought Mega Man 9 yesterday, and I only had around 1 hour to play the game, but so far it has been the same old Mega Man game I have known to love and cherish. The stages are as hard as e...

    A "new" Mega Man...which is obviously hard as hell!

    Rated on September 28, 2008 by Engranag

    After many years, the beloved Classic Mega Man and his impossible missions are finally back in a "new-old" adventure where Dr. Light, our hero's creator, is trying to take over the world... Wait a min...

    Difficult, yet rewarding, Mega Man 9 takes the series back to it's roots, and the results are stunning.

    Rated on September 28, 2008 by LegendofNerd

    The Blue Bomber makes a triumphant return to 2D in one of his most challenging, and enjoyable, games yet. Capcom, choosing to forgo shiny next-gen graphics and bloom effects, took a considerable risk ...

    "Simply amazing"

    Rated on September 28, 2008 by savatoex

    Since the the 8o's Capcom has been near mass produce Mega Man brand games, but we can all agree on which one is the most memorable. Mega Man 9 basically has the same game play style as Mega Man 1 and ...

    The Best 8-bit game of this century

    Rated on September 29, 2008 by Pierst179

    On its surface Mega Man 9 looks like a simple game, but it doesn't take long after you turn it on for you to notice that on its core the game is a homage, a celebration, of an era where pixels could b...

    A brand spankin' new old-scool classic.

    Rated on September 29, 2008 by SenorTinman

    Hmmm.... Mega Man 9, such an interesting game. A sequel to the original Mega Man series, which by the way hasn't seen a sequel since 8 in 1998. This is by far one of the best downloadable games in '08...
