I remember back when Megaman 9 was anounced that i wonder what the series
had become in general. I havent playied any of the NES megaman games.
And that boils down to that i dont have an NES.Ot atleast i thought i didnt because after
a small raid at my basement i discovered that i ahd my own NES. W00t!!!!.
Now at first i thought it was a toaster but i immidiatly learned that it could play games.
I was so happy that i finnally could taste what you guys called retro gaming.
I havent touched any emulators because i am not interested in those things.
I rather prefer playing those games on the official console.
But that wasnt all.I discovered that i didnt have only one old console,I had Many.
Apparently my father had bought a lot of consoles and games for my 2 brothers which are 28 years old now.
The amount of consoles and games i found was mind blowing for me.
But thats not the reason i am here right now.
I am here to review a game.That game is called Megaman.
I discovered this game at hanging at a box (probaply collecting dust)
and i was interested in that once i saw the artwork.
Not because it was good but because it was...Well see for your self.
That is fucken terrible.I didnt realise that this was megaman because the title was the last thing i saw.
Once i saw that art work i convinced my self that if i playied that game the expiriance would really hard.
But than i saw the title (which reminded me of those prologe texts in Star Wars) and i thought i may play it.
I took my NES and my stuff in my living room and i hooked it with my Old TV from the 1988.
You see the whole Megaman series is not really good in my eyes because there are so
many games,most of em mediocre,for so many consoles.The battle network series was not megaman
megaman X series has gotten out of hand and the whole story line is messed up in my mind.
I putted all those aside because this was the first try of Capcom.
So you start the game with the HUGE megaman Logo as teh title screen.Me ,not impressed, hits start and the game
goes to the enemy boss select screen.Once i saw the names of the bosses i laughed so hard i couldnt
even look at them.I your wondered why HERE IS THE SELECT SCREEN.
*retreats because of laugher*
These names are so bad they are good.CUTMAN? ELECMAN ? GUTSMAN.
You heard correctly GUTSMAN.I could never think of a name like that even if i tried.
Imagene what hes brother's name.I think it would have been MUCHLEMAN.
They dont name bosses like that anymore.
But jokes aside i was really interested in this.Not because of the bosses but because you could choose
what boss you want to battle first,which may have been kinda new back in gaming.
I chose ,based on appearence , to fight Cutman First because he the least threating.
I warped down to the enemy territory (kinda like in star trek) and the game began.
I immidiatly was surrended by a feeling like i was playing something new.
The music was diffferent to what i have been hearing in normal games the graphics
where kinda good and again i had a feeling like i was introduced to something new.
The music,the gameplay everything was addicting andi loved every second of it.
So the gameplay goes like this: you choose a boss and than you go down to that stage to kill him.
But hold on if i can warp down into whatever boss stage i want why cant i go directly in the end.
It seems that the warping machine doesnt have enough juice to do something like that.
At the end you fight a boss but getting there was hard.Its boss had different envioroments and
hazards i needed to go through therefor i died a lot.And when i say lo i mean it.
Anyways i get to the end of the first stage.I was awaited by what looked like a huge phone and
than i entered a huge corridor.There where enemies and stuff so i after i killed those noobs
I got to my first boss CUTMAN.I can tell you already he isnt a gardener...What?That wasnt funny...
Get a sense of humor you twats.
CUTMAN was the easiest boss and the most fun one too kill.I junged the game from the first game and
i wanted to play it more.It was such a satifaction to kill him and end the stage that i continued playing it.
He used a Cutting thing that i had to avoid.
After that small win i realised i had another 5 guys to kill (robots).I chose Elecman for my second boss.
Immidiatly after i warped down the stage the music blew me away.The music gave me the feelign that
i had playied the game again somewhere.Than i remembered.
I HAD PLAYIED THIS GAME BEFORE.
Back in 2000 me and my brothers had been playing this game on our NES.I even remember my brothers
beatting the game ,even through i dotn remember the ending.I remembered when i was playing with them.
all the good times the game gave us.
That wasnt all through.The stage was more detailed in graphics ,the level design was better, but mostly
the music was one of the best i have heard.
After the short yet awesome stage i came to the end of the stage again.There was a corridor like
the on in CUTMAN's stage only ihad to climb this one.It seems that in the end of every stage
you need to go through a corridor full of enemies.
Than i reached elecman.My encounter was short because i didnt realise i had 2 health bars left there for
he killed me.It was than when i realised i had CUTMAN's power.
The main machinism of the game is that everytime to kill a boss you get his power (kinda like it kirby).
Although i must question how does this work.I end the existence of one boss and than i magicly get his power.
No actually you get an orb once you kill a boss which is the power it self.
Its boss is valuebull to the other's boss weapon.For example ICEMAN is weak agaist ELECMAN's lighting
and ELECMAN is weak agaist CUTMAN's weapon.
Interesting but i have seen this before.Still this must have been something new back than.[/size]
Saddly i must end the playthrough here because if i continue like this i will take forever.
But continueing the review you go into other bosses and take their powers.Its boss stage is unique
and a whole new expiriance from the start.
I mostly found my self dying in GUTSMAN stage and ICEMAN STAGE because the platforming there was
made by the devil.You had 30 flying you needed to go through to get to the end.
And at one time i almost gave up on the game.
But one thing that i found out is that every time i came to a difficult part i would still continue playing it.
Everytime i was frustrated i would love to play that part even through it was hard.Than once i beated that part
i would cheer and continue playign it.The bigger the challenge was the bigger satifaction i had beating that part.
After you beat all the bosses its time for WILLY'S Castle and althrough i want to show you footage
of the castle sadly i cant.Not because that it was too ahrd but because i forgot to take screenshots of
the game and i cant tell you i wont be playing that game jsut for the footage ( and i dont use saves).
But i can tell you IT WAS HARD. You had to go throught 4 stages its with a difficult end boss.
You fight a bubblerobot,Willy and even A clone of your self.
AND A CLONE OF YOUR SELF.THATS HARDCORE.
Im not gona spoil you the ending too put i didnt like it.It was just megaman running down a road to doctot Light's
house and finding Doctor Light and some nameless girl.(I dont know her name)
So this was my review of Megaman.A game i absolutly love.
Now i used an emulator to get the screenshots but i can asure you i have the official game alogn with an
I playied that game on my NES from start to end... and i still am.
Thank you guys for reading my review.If i get many views or comments i will make another review.
THE END read
