Good review, Jason, of a game that I had requested myself, only to get a figurative hand in the face! Hmm...

Anyway, your review summed up nicely (and rather charitably) what I was afraid the game would be all along: a plain Jane Mega Man clone.

I found a few things that require your attention:

"WhileVintage Hero is disappointing in some respects, however, it does feature a soundtrack offering a selection of tunes..."

A missing space, and the "while"/"however"agreement seems a bit funky here.

"One of the game's more surprising strength is its plot..."

A missing "s."

Anyway, kudos on kicking things off for 2018.

I don't have to prove I'm refined - that's what makes me refined!

Thanks for catching those! I use Dragon NaturallySpeaking to write my reviews now (and have for the last few months, due to RSI issues), and sometimes the software makes errors of that sort that I wouldn't likely make if I were typing by hand. Spacing issues are common, and words that sound the same but are spelled differently (or are singular when they should be plural). I try to catch everything in edits, but sometimes I just don't.

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto on secret doors to another world
