Mega Man IV feels like an evolution over the previous three games. Though it still leans heavily on previously-available source material, there's enough innovation and remixing here to make it feel like a fresh experience. This will also be the last of the classic Game Boy series to pull from the past, and with all the little touches here and there, it's hard to top this one. Highly recommended for all Mega Man fans to try this one out.

Great graphics and terrific play. If you can find the four letters B-E-A-T, then Mega Man's old friend Beat joins you fro some robot-kickin' action.

Das Erfolgskonzept der populären Mega-Man-Module hat sich mittlerweile über etliche Fortsetzungen hinweg bewährt, so daß man auch diesmal bei Capcom keinerlei Anlaß dafür fand, wesentliche Änderungen im Spieldesign vorzunehmen. Einzig der schon immer recht happige Schwierigkeitsgrad wurde noch weiter auf die Spitze getrieben. Obwohl der Kleine hervorragend zu steuern ist, erscheint es mitunter unmöglich, die ungeheuer schwierigen Spielsituationen glimpflich zu meistern. Bild für Bild müssen Feindkonstellationen und deren Bewegungsabläufe regelrecht auswendig gelernt werden, um überhaupt Land zu sehen. Anfänger sollten am besten zum Modul gleich ein Action-Replay Pro mitkaufen!
Mega Man...again. Oh well, Capcom has a way of creating the Mega Man series over and over again while still being fun to play. New bosses and weapons spice up the game while the levels are still challenging with their confusing twists and turns. The blurring is still a reoccurring problem when Mega Man is on the move, but it doesn't detract from the absolute fun Mega Man always delivers.
Total! (Germany) (Oct, 1995)
Wer schon ein Mega Man sein eigen nennt, wird also nach wirklichen Neuerungen vergeblich suchen. Beinhorte Megamaniacs kommen natürlich auch an diesem Teil nicht vorbei.
Portable Review (Oct 30, 2005)
Replay value, however, is this game's Achilles' Heel. After you beat this game, you definitely won't want to pick it up for awhile. It's a problem with most Megaman games (and essentially all platformers with no unlockable features). But if you're in the middle of the game, it's hard to put down. I'd say that if you can find it for sale, have a GB/GBC/GBA and are looking for some platforming fun, pick it up.
