Mega Man II, c'est un peu la crème de la crème de la crème de la plate-forme/action à la sauce Capcom. Si vous ne devez jouer qu'à un seul Mega Man classique, c'est celui-là. Et si vous n'y jouez pas, j'envoie Pipomantis vous casser la gueule. C'est dit.

"Mega Man" war gut - "Mega Man 2" ist besser, und zwar wesentlich besser. Nicht ohne Grund wird es zu den besten Actionspiele aller Zeiten gezählt. Capcom und Keiji Inafune haben sich seinerzeit die Kritikpunkte des Vorgängers wirklich zu Herzen genommen und vieles am Spiel verbessert, ohne dabei das Kerngameplay zu verändern. Und das beste daran: Das Spiel fasziniert heute noch genauso wie vor rund 20 Jahren und bietet ein erstklassiges Spielerlebnis, das insbesondere Freunde von 8-Bit-Actionspielen für das NES keinesfalls verpassen sollten. Wer bis heute noch keinen "Mega Man"-Titel gespielt hat, sollte dies rasch nachholen und am besten zu "Mega Man 2" greifen, das dank unterschiedlicher Schwierigkeitsgrade besonders für Einsteiger geeignet ist. Kurz und knapp: Kaufen! Und zwar schleunigst!

Capcom's intention with the upcoming Mega Man 9 is to mirror what made Mega Man 2 such a success -- and to emphasize the point, they've positioned this Virtual Console release of the game as a lead-in to the new title's WiiWare debut. The company's marketing tactics are sound here, as there's no better way to get yourself ready for Mega Man's next great adventure than by experiencing his greatest past quest. Let's also hope that strong sales of this, the first Mega Man that came to the VC last month and Mega Man 9 all together will encourage Capcom to continue to support Nintendo's retro download service with more of the Blue Bomber's past adventures -- because even though Mega Man 2 is the pinnacle, there are still several other spectacular sequels we'd love to revisit in Virtual Console form.

Mega Man 2's generally noted as the best of the series, and for many good reasons. It's the only Mega Man with a difficulty setting, meaning both new players and veterans alike can enjoy it, and the Robot Master weapons and level designs are also quite good. But the thing most people love the game for is the music: each and every stage has an unforgettable 8-bit tune that sounds really good. If you want a good platformer, look no further than this, this is classic Capcom platforming action at its very best.

Malgré ses aspects de Run & Gun game, Mega Man 2 est un jeu bien plus complet qu’il n’y parait. Il faut être particulièrement habile et malin pour se sortir de la plupart des situations. Chef-d’œuvre de mise en scène, avec une bande-son unique et un chara design parfait, le titre de Capcom est un des tous meilleurs jeux de la Nes. Son portage sur la Console Virtuelle n’est qu’une raison de plus pour en profiter ou pour le faire découvrir à ceux qui n’auraient pas eu la chance d’y jouer à l’époque. Mega Man 2 restera à tout jamais une référence incontournable du jeu d’action.

Mega Man II makes for a great portable game, as players can chip away at especially tough parts little by little. Visually it looks outstanding on the small screen and not enough can be said about the Virtua Console's save functionality. If you're going to pick up any Mega Man game on the Virtual Console, make sure it's this one!
