Mega Man 8 is very inexpensive (compared to Mega Man 7) so it won't hurt you wallet - only your pride.

Capcom certainly has an uncanny ability to create wonderfully cutesy characters and Mega Man 8 is no exception. From the moment you lay eyes on the whole world in which the action takes place, you’re hooked. Add to this the Laboratory shop, where the total number of the ‘Bolts’ that you’ve collected en-route can be converted into power-ups, plus a number of convenient save points, and you have all the ingredients for a classic platform game. Well worth a look if this genre is your cup of tea.

Gamers enamored with Mega Man are sure to love MM8. Others should try it for a weekend to bring back the memories of when games were just for kids.

The only real problem with Mega Man 8 is the deja vu that sets in almost immediately. Even the robots seem to be clones of enemies from earlier MM titles. However, if you've skipped most of the series or still long for the ability to attach weird weapons to your arm, Mega Man 8 won't disappoint.

Seuls les fans trouveront leur compte dans ce Megaman 8... et encore Megaman X4 et Megaman Legend sortent en même temps !

So this is what it comes down to: do you really want to play another 2D Mega Man game? If so, then you'll like Mega Man 8. It's got all the elements that make the Mega games so challenging: moving platforms, a moderate level of difficulty, and fast, pattern-based bosses. However, if you've grown up and cast these games aside with your Master System and G.I. Joe collection, you'll probably want to wait for the imminent 3D Mega Man. Mega Man 8 is a good, solid game, it's just been done too many times before.

Unless you’re a diehard fan or a total newcomer who doesn’t know any better, don’t eat Mega Man 8.

Graphismes sommaires, niveaux simplissimes et action répétitive, les habitués retrouveront la recette qui a fait son succès, à savoir les boss à battre pour piquer leurs armes. Ces armes serviront à terrasser plus facilement d'autres boss. Ce numéro a assez mal vieilli face autre autres Megaman actuellement disponibles.

Grand classique des jeux de plates-formes, Megaman est d'un style assez ancien en 2D, aux graphismes peu détaillés. Coloré et fort bien animé, il a cependant un peu mal vieilli. Car cela reste un bête jeu de plates-formes comme il y en avait tant sur les consoles 16 bits, qu'il n'est pas sans rappeler d'ailleurs.
