Mega Man 9 

 

Mega Man is finally back, and it is a legitimate sequel to the series. Mega Man 9 is exactly what fans of the series have been waiting for. Those fans may not have been the most patient, as they waded through Mega Man X games, Mega Man Battle Network and more. Capcom has brought old school into the current video game generation in an interesting way. Mega Man 9 is downloadable on the Wii, PS3, and Xbox 360 for a mere ten US Dollars.

The visual aspect of Mega Man 9 reminds me of the 8-bit NES (Nintendo Entertainment System). Graphic hounds will be disappointed. This game looks better to me than any NES game though. Mega Man is a robot, and he fights other robots. This is done mainly with his hand that morphs into a gun. Robots explode and vanish in this home console video game. Capcom included a lot of bright colors that look great.

I was digging the old school sounds in Mega Man 9 like I do the latest issue of Family Friendly Gaming. The traditional sounds chirping out of Mega Man 9 reminded me of being a kid, and playing games like this one. It reminded me of wrestling with my big brother, the smell of the kitchen after mom finished cooking, and dad coming home from work. Mega Man 9 brings back a lot of great memories.

I believe that Mega Man 9 is worth the money on one condition. You have to be competitive, and into old school games. Mega Man 9 is not an easy game. You will replay this one a lot to master the levels. Then there is finding the right boss combination (one bosses weapon easily defeats another boss), and finally getting completely through this game. Mega Man 9 is not for the lazy gamer, you have to be dedicated to defeat this game.

Generally I like how Mega Man 9. Capcom brought the series back in an intelligent way. The levels show a lot of intelligent design, and the bosses are really cool. The controls are simple enough in Mega Man 9, yet the different weapons add some strategy. Mega Man 9 is one of the most frustrating video games I have ever played, and yet I would come back for more because I wanted to win.

Mega Man 9 teaches the player to use violence to solve their problems. It also teaches mastery of skills with practice, and to stand up to evil. I am curious if there will be a Mega Man 10 or not. If you are easily angered then steer clear of Mega Man 9. If you like a challenge, and can promise me you will not end up being profane, then you may want to check out Mega Man 9.
