My review of Mega Man

Updated on March 17, 2015

My 'blind' review of Mega Man.

This character was everywhere when I was a kid. I'd go into a Bargain Harold's or BiWay and see Mega Man shirts, toys, lunch boxes, pajamas, even cards. But just who was he? I was very young and did not have a NES, so I did not know the origins of Mega Man. Fast forward a few years and I know who he is. But, I never played a Mega Man game. Now that all the NES Mega Man games are available for the 3ds Eshop, I decided to delve into these classic games. My first impressions are favourable. You can choose from six levels to play. No wonder this game was big back in the 80/90's. No game I could remember let you choose your own level. So off I go. And die. And retry. And die until I get a game over. Different level! Same thing. This game is old school difficult. Sadly, I bet when I was about 6 years old, this game would have been a breeze for me. But alas, my platforming skills have diminished, and I need to polish my reflexes. So I keep at it, and kinda like it This game is the definition of simple fun. And the sense of accomplishment from getting to, let alone defeating, a boss is high. I knew from friends that you get the boss' weapon, which can be used as a weakness for another boss. But I do not want to use a guide! So I fiddle around. These bosses are tough, and my initial weapon is weak. But once you find what they are weak to, oh the satisfaction. I can see why this game got numerous sequels, Game Boy games, a SNES storyline, and is now being made available on various downloadable sites for the retro style of Mega Man 9 and 10. But, this is the game that started it all, and it is damn fun. If you want to hearken back to the day of controller throwing, game breaking, temper tantrum difficulty games, then give this a try. It's pretty cheap and available for download on the Nintendo Eshop.
