Description: Mega Man blah blah blah Dr. Wily blah blah blah…..

Positives: The stages are fairer and less full of unfair traps and things that are impossible to see coming. The bosses, with the exception of Burst Man, are actually beatable without resorting to cheating.

Negatives: My gaming skills are average. I’m not a speed runner, I don’t do “no damage” runs, and I can’t blow through games with ease. I took the suggestion to start with Burst Man’s stage. The stage was fine, but the boss battle is the biggest pile of crap I have ever seen in a Mega Man game. It’s complete, utter BS (CUBS). For some reason, Capcom thought a boss like that was a good idea. See, Burst Man has a few attacks. The one with three empty bubbles? Workable. The rising bubbles from the floor? Annoying, but fair for challenge. The bombs inside bubbles? !@#$. He shoots these in sets of three. Mega Man has to jump over them all. It takes ridiculously precise jumps not to make contact with any of them. If MM contacts one, which he will because anything less than a perfect jump will cause that, he somehow ends up inside the bubble. The bubble then quickly rises toward convenient instant death spikes at the top of the room. Mega Man dies if he hits then, which will happen 90% of the time because it’s nearly impossible to shoot out the bubble in time. It’s absolute garbage.

A week later, I finally beat Burst Man, but it involved holding down one button while tapping another multiple times. It’s still ridiculous and unfair, but at least now I can see more of the game. It turns out that the other bosses I’ve come across have been much fairer.


Mega Man gets a Hard Hat!
These guys think they’re hot staff.
Hard Hats are so versatile. They can swim in whatever this liquid is.
There’s a reason the word Burst has a B and an S in it.
The jokes just write themselves.
Nice try, Capcom. These Section Z enemies aren’t going unnoticed.
It started raining here. I better find Cloud Man.
Oh brother….the huevo droppers are back.
I think Junk Man lives in a dumpster.
I need a Christmas tree. Never mind that it’s June.
I’d rather fight that dinosaur skeleton in the background.
Hey wait, what’s Heat Man doing here?

Final Opinion: This game goes up and down. It’ll be next to impossible one moment and a breeze the next. Mega Man 2, 3, and 5 are all better, though.

Completion: Started the second set of robot masters

Grade: C
