As with Mega Man 2, it would be easy to go on and on singing the praises of Mega Man's third NES adventure. But just as with that game, I'll cut to the point -- Mega Man 3 is an excellent, fully featured and incredibly enjoyable action experience from the NES that is absolutely worth your investment of 500 Wii Points. To this day, fans of the franchise debate whether or not 2 or 3 is the best in the series -- to me, the point is moot. Both are incredible, and both can be owned for a combined total of just ten bucks. You should download both.
"Mega Man 3" stellt für viele Spieler den Höhepunkt der NES-Action-Reihe dar. Zurecht, denn die acht Bossgegner und Stages sowie der finale Showdown gehören zu dem Besten, das die Serie bis heute zu bieten hat. Inhaltlich gibt es soweit, abgesehen vom knackigen Schwierigkeitsgrad, nichts zu kritisieren und der dritte Ableger braucht sich keinesfalls im Schatten des Blockbusters "Mega Man 2" verstecken. Abzug in der Endnote gibt es letztendlich jedoch aufgrund der wirklich nervigen, häufig auftretenden Slowdows während des Spielens. Fans der Serie sollte dies allerdings nicht stören und jeder Interessierte darf beruhigt zugreifen. "Mega Man 3" ist - wie bereits der Vorgänger - ein Stück Videospielgeschichte, das man (auch wenn ich mich an dieser Stelle wiederhole) einfach gespielt haben muss.
Après un Mega Man 2 incroyable, vu par beaucoup comme le meilleur jeu de plates-formes de son temps, on se demandait comment Capcom réussirait à faire mieux. En méditant plus de 2 ans sur Mega Man 3, l'éditeur a réussi à accoucher d'un jeu fantastique. A moins de faire une fixation sur la difficulté un tantinet faible, on voit mal comment vous pourriez y résister. En supprimant les défauts des précédents volets, en y ajoutant une trame scénaristique, de nouveaux personnages, un gameplay affiné, et tout en restant dans l'esprit de la série, Mega Man 3 surpasse son prédécesseur, et c'est à lui que devrait revenir le titre de meilleur épisode NES !

There's no question that this isn't a game for the short-tempered, but beneath the tough exterior there's a logical and well-balanced game, rich with brilliant design decisions and unforgettable moments. Rank it alongside Legend of Zelda and Super Mario Bros. 3 as an NES classic that more than warrants a 500-Point purchase.

Many Mega Man fans still consider this third 8-bit release as the pinnacle of the series and it won't take you long to see why that is. All the amazing Mega Man action is intact and the 8 Robot Masters are among the best the series has ever seen. While the difficulty is still sky high, it certainly shouldn't shock anyone that's had any type of experience with any of the other Mega Man releases. If you're a Mega Man fan, this should be at the top of your wish list and should be added to your Virtual Console collection immediately. And if for some reason you haven't yet given the series a try, there is really no better place to start than with this absolutely incredible action-platformer release.
