Mega Man 3 review

Review date unknown

Jason Venter says: "So the whole 'more of a good thing' aspect of Mega Man 3 isn't what disappoints me. Rather, it was a lack of heart. Where Mega Man 2 had absolutely genius level design and totally cool environments, Mega Man 3 takes a more sterile approach. There are lots of wide, open spaces where not much of anything is happening. The polish isn't there in quite the same evidence, and some of the game's size is derived from repetition."

zippdementia says: "In the first few screens you are introduced to the occasional lonely snake head, which shoots at you when approached. Then you meet three of them at once in a tight space and test your dodging skills. Then you fight a huge one. The progression of difficulty, when done in this visual way with the enemies literally getting bigger, is extremely rewarding. Itís a tactic that is still repeated in games, like God of War, today."
