A.V. Club: Mega Man 9 Review

Experimenting with Black Hole Bombs and other special weapons is great fun in Mega Man 9, a welcome departure from recent entries in the series, where an enhanced Mega Buster made other weaponry less relevant.

Fifty unlockable trophies extend the game's lifespan, but some of the goals-e.g., "Clear the game without getting damaged"-are downright sadistic. Two decades after peaking with Mega Man 2, the franchise hits another high.

The story is too old to be commented.
