Whoa!? A new Mega Man game!! Well not exactly, alright at least Capcom released it....oh wait that's not true either. WELL, at least we got a new Mega Man game for his 25th Anniversary all right!?

Street Fighter x Mega Man is a simple game paying homage to the 8-bit Mega Man using gameplay mainly consisting of Mega Man 4 (as you can charge and slide), with the occasional slips of other classic Mega Man elements. As in all Mega Man games you fight off on eight bosses, in which after you travel to fight three additional bosses, do a boss rush mode, and of course fight the final boss. Alas, it is different in this Mega Man game as Dr. Wily is no where to be found in this game, for the special is the Street Fighters have come out to play.

Story: As Mega Man is ready to kick back, relax, and enjoy his anniversary; Ryu and his fellow Street Fighters over here this as their anniversary is coming to an end and would like to do one last battle before they officially close the books on theirs. Now, Mega Man must take on the Street Fighters request and enjoy a friendly duel between Capcom icons....or is there more?

Gameplay: Well to compare to old Mega Man's is a bit of stretch, as though it may look and sound like classic 8-bit Mega Man, gameplay wise it falls a bit short. First off, compared to recent Mega Man games (Mega Man 9 and 10) the difficulty is ridiculously easy, it took me an hour to beat the entire game. Secondly, there is hardly any Rush, just the beginning of one level where you use him as the Rush board. Third, the levels feel a lot shorter than classic Mega Man games and in addition there is no save function, so its playthrough or quit.





Other than that the game does adopt to any Gamepad put in the game, as long as you reconfigure it in the start menu, which I had no problems. Jumping and shooting, aka the premise of the game, flows smoothly, although occasionally sometimes when you want to jump with your controller/gamepad it will slide. All the powers added in the game, after you defeat each boss, are wonderful, from your Hadoken, to your...watermelons!? (Mega Man 8 soccer power homage). The visual is clear and crisp, the designs of each level are fantastic, it's just missing the Mega Man "argh" factor.

Music: Fantastic. The music is mainly original but some of the tracks have some of the scores from the original games (like Dhalsim stage has the Snake Man intro).

Replay Value: Depends. Seriously its not very high but its not very low. You can try all the hidden easter eggs in the game or you can do a Mega-Buster challenge only and best of all you can try to get the secret boss!

Overall: 7.5/10- Good

While SF x MM isn't the best Mega Man game I've played (obviously) nor is it the worst, but I respect the game for what it is. A fan-made homage to the Mega Man series with a unique twist. The addition of Street Fighter characters was an awesome element and I really had fun playing this game for about the 3rd time now. The game is free to download as well, so my money was well spent (in this actuality it was time).



Now Capcom we're waiting for a real Mega Man release, because we all know this doesn't cut it!
