Xbox Live Arcade: Mega Man 9 review
The same person who recommended Braid to me, also recommended Mega Man 9. I must say upfront, Mega Man 9 was not as exciting. It's a 2D sidescroller (this is arcade, people). That's about all I can say at this point. I didn't have the dedication to complete the 1st demo level. I guess it could just be me... From what I attempted, the controls were very simple. There is quite a bit to think about when playing this game. You have to pace yourself. If I wanted to try to run through the game there would be something popping up to kill me. When I died, the level started over completely. That's something I really don't like in games. Other than all of that the game was good for thinking on demand about what to do in a situation. If you don't think of how to get through the situation quick enough you'll be dead. My score for this game will be:
For a game that I wouldn't even finish that's more than enough. Don't trust me on this issue though. Check it out for yourself and let me know what you have to say about it.
