Summary

Another Side-scrolling, jumping adventure. It's classic, though! Definitely worth playing!

The Good

Originality. This was the beginning of a series that has went off in all sorts of directions, even to the point of making Megaman Soccer, and a Megaman RPG! Anyway, back to this game. Again, very original in most ways, good music, good graphics (for the NES, anyway) and as always, in every Megaman game, Dr. Wily's eyebrows are just hilarious.

The Bad

Difficulty, and control. This was the only Megaman game on the NES not to feature the password system, which makes each game considerably less difficult. As for control, Megaman slid around too much. The Cover art sucked, too.

The Bottom Line

Classic. A true retrogaming experience.
