mariner Welcome to my blog. I'm sort of new to this whole blogging thing, so I haven't figured out how to update my custom greeting. That, or I am just lazy and don't really care. Either way, you're stuck looking at this stupid message and you know what? I don't care! That's right: I don't care! Otherwise, I'd obviously edit this out. But, uh... yeah. I didn't. Or did I?

Mega Man review

After hearing about the utterly ridiculous prices for the Virtual Console games, I realized I was going to have to bite the bullet, unlearn everything I know, and buy Mega Man Anniversary Collection. And so I did. I think I'm used to the weird backwards controls now (for those that don't know, the GC version of this game has you press B to jump and A to shoot. Bleh.), but it was a pain to get used to. I was getting hit by Snake Man. Snake Man! And the worst part about it is that I'll never be able to go play MM3 on the NES again, for fear of messing me up even more. Sigh...

But anywho, in honor of that, here's my review of the first and worst Mega Man. Which is a rather unique review for me for multiple reasons. See, I actually thought up and wrote the review over a span of two days. That's gotta be a record; it usually takes me 2 months. It's also the shortest review I've written in a while, mostly because there wasn't much else to say. That also means it misses GameFAQs word count by a few hundred words, which I honestly thought would never happen to me (seriously, how can there be 50+ MM reviews? And only one of them with a score less than 6?). So this review's exclusive, at least for now. Maybe someday I'll write some crap about the graphics or something and put it up over there, but I don't feel like it at the moment. So exclusive it is.

So there's my review, which is finally up 4 days after I submitted it. I better not see any staff members complaining about GameFAQs management now... =P

Sorry about that. It was locked to another staff member so I couldn't approve it or it would've been up a long time ago. Accidents happen. Forgive us and keep those good reviews coming!

Yeah, I agree with the review. I tried playing through the first Mega Man awhile back and I just got really tired of it. Most people when rating it are mainly going crazy over OMG IT STARTED IT ALL!!

I like the first Mega Man okay, but it hasn't stood up to the heights the others reached. It's the kind of game you should play through once to see how things began, but it's mostly just good for historical purposes (though I really did like Mega Man Powered Up! for the PSP).

Mega Man X-X3 rendered all of the NES ones obsolete, IMO.

I agree a bit with Sportsman. After playing the X games, the old ones feel extremely slow without the ability to dash.
