With eight bosses to beat, more than a dozen new missions and an arsenal of weapon upgrades (gotta love the energy tanks), Mega Man must clear the name of Dr. Light, whose robots have begun rioting all over the world. Surely, the evil Dr. Wiley is involved.

Of most interest to fans: Original Mega Man character designer Keiji Inafune has returned to develop the more than 50 new enemies and bosses.

It’s definitely a game for a niche audience. Younger players will find little to appreciate with the graphics, casual gamers will find the title very difficult and only the most reverent old-schoolers will bow to this interactive Mega Man shrine.
