"Mega" is correct!
30 June 2000 | by See all my reviews

There may be hundreds of sequels, but the original is still the best if you ask me. It starts out with Dr. Wily and Dr. Light being buds, and creating 6 robots to help mankind. The robots were Bombman, who could explode unneeded buildings and such; Gutsman, who had enormous strength that could crush boulders; Cutman, who could chop down trees; Fireman, who could burn unnecessary objects and explore volcanic areas; and Iceman, who could explore Arctic area (there's also Elecman, but I forget his benefit.) During their companionship, Dr. Wily betrays Dr. Light and has the robots do his bidding. Dr. Wily, now a madman who hopes to conquer the world, must be stopped. Dr. Light realizes that his former cleaning robot, Mega Man, is everyone's last hope. Mega Man sets off to face the evil robots, and at the end meets Dr. Wily himself. This game is very original, and quite fun to play. As in any Mega Man game, you receive the enemies' power after defeating them, which in turn can help you find out secrets, and help you defeat some of the other robots. Viva Mega Man!
