Game Description & Reviews:
Our NES Hero is back! Megaman is in a new hack agian to stop evil Dr. Wily.
Very interesting hack indeed. It's Mega Man II not quite like you've ever played before. The text has changed to alter the story line and add humor to the mix i.e. whenever you get a new weapon, you are no longer getting an upgrade, you are getting "Strapped", keeping it gangster as they say. Additional game play perks include new navigational puzzles, blind spots and hidden secret areas to discover. We've got new stage designs, all new music, different strength levels for your weapons and even some nostalgic plays on some of your favorite NES Classics. See if you can find Zelda II, Metroid or Super Mario Brothers pop up both visually and audibly. Even the Mega Man franchise itself gets hijacked (listen for remixed Guts Man/Spark Man music, spot the outline of an exclusive to game boy boss, later in the series sprites and more). If I were to knit pick these cool additions to the Mega Man universe, it would be that maybe the team REALLY likes Metroid and probably could've hooked up some love for other franchises like Castlevania, Contra or Gouls N Ghosts.
The game can be completed in one run through with an emulator that lets you save often. The challenge factor, however, is one of the biggest concerns as it is hit and miss as much as it is uneven. The 8 robot masters are easy as all get out to defeat, but the changes made to the Wily stage levels make some battles nearly impossible to complete without going online to find help or take advantage of certain glitches I'm sure our Hack Designers didn't originally intend for you to manipulate for personal progress. Some weapons drain way too quickly while others such as Quick Man's and Metal Man's continue to be consistent go to's because it feels like their energy levels simply never deplete and they both can kill just about anything swiftly. Meanwhile Crash Man's is wiped out in just a couple of shots and hardly ever necessary to equip.
Over all, I highly recommend this one for fans of the original who want to experience a refreshing take on a favorite with a serious Nintendo Mash Up in the mix, flaws & inconsistencies and all.
