Mega Man 10

It was the ninth title in the Mega Man series that saw it return to its original low bit stylisation that it originated with and helped push a new genre of games, so to see it keep this pixelated graphic is a solid start.

With a strange Roboenza illness infecting all robots over the globe, Mega Man must battle through the infected robots and defeat the eight robot masters formed from the Roboenza to find a cure. An unlikely ally has also emerged in the conniving Dr.Willy who can’t seem to find a cure for the Roboenza, Mega Man now has to also decide is the evil doctor can be trusted or not.

The Mega Man franchise has always been a strong one, and the tenth is no different. Having the choice of playing as either Mega Man or Proto Man (Mega Mans Brother) you will battle your way through eight main stages of various powered robots, and environmental changes such as mazes and pitfalls, but the heart of the game is at the end of level boss. Each one again has their own power, most obvious from their names with ‘Chill Man’ & ‘Blade Man’, which creates the real traditional Mega Man experience, though MM’s sliding and Mega Buster shots are still missing in this one, the available weapons achieved throughout the course of the game provide more than enough variety.

The welcomed addition of ‘Easy Mode’ will take that controller slamming frustration out for a few players as a lot of the harder environmental challenges get manipulated with access points such as beams over pits of death and a less degree of AI killing power. The dearest to heart addition though is the bleeps and blops of the classic low bit soundtrack and graphics. Mega Man isn’t a visual or audible masterpiece, and it doesn’t need to be.

The simplistic nature of the game is also its cause of addictiveness, its fresh levels, characters and storylines, placed on a well trusted base. Mega Man fans will eat up this game, and for anyone who has been previously defeated by a MM title in the past, this is your redemption point as the Easy mode will finally give you the satisfaction of completing a title on your own.
