Game Description & Reviews:
Mega Man 3 retains the platforming and action game elements established by the two games that came before it. The player controls the protagonist Mega Man as he traverses eight stages to defeat the bosses: Magnet Man, Hard Man, Top Man, Shadow Man, Spark Man, Snake Man, Gemini Man, and Needle Man. Each Robot Master features a unique weapon and stage related to the weapon's power. After defeating a boss, their signature weapon is added to Mega Man's arsenal. The Robot Masters have weaknesses to the weapons of certain other Robot Masters; therefore, choosing the order in which the levels are played is a vital component of the gameplay. This is the first Mega Man game to feature the ability to slide, an important ability in most later installments. Also, after completing certain stages, Mega Man can access new abilities in his robot dog companion, Rush. These abilities include the "Rush Coil" that allows the player to jump higher, the "Rush Jet" that allows the player to fly across the screen, and the "Rush Marine" that allows the player to travel underwater.
After defeating the eight Robot Masters, the player must revisit four of the Robot Master stages. The stages' layouts are changed, and the player must defeat two Doc Robot bosses, which take on the abilities of the Robot Masters of Mega Man 2. Throughout the various stages, the player encounters Proto Man (as Break Man), a mini-boss who, once defeated, will open up passageways for Mega Man to advance. Mega Man has a final battle with Proto Man immediately after defeating the eight Doc Robot bosses. After this battle, Mega Man proceeds to Dr. Wily's fortress, which consists of several levels that are played linearly. A password system is used to allow the player to return to the game at a later time.
This is more a review than a description. I have loved the Mega Man series all of my life, and this is the first one that I had ever beaten, and is one of the best of all the original Mega Man's. If you haven't played them, or you didn't like the 1st or 2nd, give this one a try.
