G4 Preview: Mega Man Universe

There’s any number of signature touches that have made Mega Man such an enduring presence in gaming: the variety of enemies, the cool weapons, the iconic bosses—they’re all key to the 23-year-old series’ charm. But the most ingenious aspect of the Mega Man games is their level design. The platforming challenges of Mega Man are difficult enough to make gamers squeeze their controllers in rage, but elegant enough that with persistence, any player can get the little tricks of a given stage into their fingers’ muscle memory. And after that, miraculously, the game just flows. (At least until you get to the next level and start the process all over again.)

The story is too old to be commented.
