"The best of the series (for the NES)"
This is truley the best of the series. This game was made back in 1992 and despite having four games made before it, it is still very fresh and original.
Story 10 out of 10
Protoman has captured the prof. and made 8 robots to destroy Megaman. Okay, so it's not the most original plot, but it does get better and includes some twists and turns after you get past his 8 robots. No, I will not tell what happens at that time.
Game Play 9.5 out of 10
The game play is pretty much the same as in any other Megaman game: he can run (sort of), charge up his arm cannon, and blast everything in sight. There is a very good weapon you can earn by collecting the letters of to spell MEGAMANV, there's a letter in each level of the 8 main robots and it's very helpful with the final battle. Play control is very good and responsive like all the other games in the series.
Graphics 7 out of 10
The graphics in this game are very good for the NES, but aren't improved much from the rest of the series.
Overall 9 out of 10
With a good story and game play this is one of the best NES games. If you can find it at a better price than at Funcoland (I think it's around $30) be sure to pick this one up if you're an NES fan or have one lying around and want to get a good game for it.
