MegaMan Powered Up

This cute little title is a great game for the PSP. Debuting many, many years ago, Megaman burst onto the scene with great aplomb. Now, heís back again with a bigger head, freshened graphics, but essentially the same game that was so addictive back then. 

Capcom have treated us to two versions of the game with this release on PSP. One is the straight port of the title that will be somewhat retro for old school NES players who have played through the game. There is a good chance that most players will have a crack at both versions of the game as they both offer different experiences. 

The idea is to get Megaman through the various levels that are in the gameworld, ultimately facing up against a larger boss at the end of the level that once defeated will give our little blue guy a better weapon to blast his way through the next set of challenges that are in his way. 

The updated version of the game is an absolute treat, with real attention being paid to detail in every aspect of the title. The game looks better, sounds better and for the most part it even plays better. The levels are longer and I feel somewhat more complex than the original game, which makes it an even bigger bonus for fans of the series.  

Despite the cute design that would make most newcomers relax at first, there is a real difficulty in the title that proves extremely challenging. The developers have realised this with the new version that was made and have added difficulty levels that are designed to make the game more accessible, so if you get too stuck at any stage just change the settings and have another crack at it. 

The levels are all themed and the bosses have abilities to match.  One of the beauties of the new look game is that there are all sorts of visual effects that make the game such a good experience such as swirling mists and the like. I think that fans of the series are going to be so pleased with the care taken to make this look amazing, and it is a real tribute to the original game, included on this disc that an overhaul of this intensity has been undertaken.

Game time to complete this is massive with many levels and for completionists, there are 100 challenges that you have to get Megaman through and these range from easy early on to completely dastardly by the end of it all.

Do you think you have what it takes to help Megaman take on the evil Dr. Wily before of course, he takes over the world with his army of evil robots. This is such an exceptional game, both versions, old and new, and really you will be doing yourself a favour in picking this game up. Letís face it, you are essentially getting two games for one and both of them great! 

Recommended.
