Capcom once again delivers on its classic formula, tuning the difficulty down from their last attempt allowing for greater accessibility. With a new robot virus on the loose, Capcom’s blue bomber sets off on another 8-bit whirlwind adventure. This time around the good people at Capcom decided to include additional play modes right out of the download. These additional options only add to the replay value, not to mention the achievements that are up for grabs.
The game play is rock solid classic Mega Man just as you would remember from the NES days. If you played the previous installment you know what to expect. I enjoyed the multiple path level designs. The collection of bosses feel familiar but are distinct from their predecessors. As always defeating the first line of opposition is the hardest and the rest of the initial stages are easily completed with some trial and error. Although the hardcore players out there will just use the standard blaster to complete the task.
