Summary

Fairly good, but could have been better.

The Good

I liked the storyline of this game, very in depth and to the point. I also liked the whole attention to the storyline, how the attention to the story was added to this game,nice touch by the makers of this game. Also the revival of the original robot selected theme from mega man 2 I always did love that theme.

The Bad

I didn't like the fact that alot of the music tunes in this game, seemed rushed or flat in tone. however some of the tunes were a bit catchy, it just didn't do it for me as mega man 3 and 2's tunes did. also, the colors were much darker in this installment, not as bright and beautiful detailed as they were in part 3's.

The Bottom Line

I would describe this game, as a game that's is fairly decent. But does not live up to the mega man games that came before it. It almost seemed as though the producers of this game just didn't put the kinda thought into the music and gameplay as they did in mega man 2 and 3.
