A complete change in direction for the Mega Man series, Mega Man 9 set out to recapture the glory of the 80's in its design and presentation. At face value, many would say it does just that -- some would say for better, others for worse. I am of the former of those two opinions, and while I may be a big fan of Mega Man 2 and Mega Man 3, it is not simply because Mega Man invokes memories of these classics. Mega Man 9 is a very solid game all around."
