When Dr. Wily escapes from prison, Dr. Light is forced to send Rock, AKA Megaman back out on the warpath.

Did You Know?


Guts Man from the original NES Mega Man reappears in this game in the form of a fortress boss (Stage Three of Wily's Fortress), though he has been rebuilt since the original game and is much larger now and moves on tank treads. See more »


When we first see Dr. Wily's castle, his saucer flies toward the castle, and we hear the appropriate "saucer beep" sound effects. But in the subsequent exterior shots of the castle, we still hear the saucer noise, even though the saucer is nowhere to be seen. See more »

Crazy Credits

SPOILER: The ending features Mega Man defeating the Wily Alien, uncovering that it was just a projection all along. Wily gets on the floor and begs, like always. Mega Man is then shown walking home, with the four seasons passing. He then runs home, leaving his helmet on a hill. The credits roll follows. See more »

This is the one that hooked me
25 January 2000 | by (Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I had never heard of the first but when I saw preview images of Mega Man 2 I just had to check it out. If side-scrolling action and cartoony graphics are your bag, you've got to play it. The villains seem appropriately cheesy yet, I never thought of this game as too childish to enjoy. The play control is slightly better than in the original Mega Man and the landscapes more vivid.

The story goes - in the first Mega Man, Dr. Light and Dr. Wily created 7 robots together to serve humanity. Dr. Wily stole 6 and reprogrammed them to help him take over the world, leaving only Dr. Light and Mega Man to save the day. This time out, Dr. Wily has returned with 8 new robots of his own creation and a gigantic fortress that puts the first game to shame.

After the success of Mega Man 2 the franchise took off spawning Mega Man 3-6 on the NES, Mega Man 7 and the spin-off series Mega Man X 1-3 on the Super NES, Mega Man X4 and Mega Man 8 on the Playstation, and even Mega Man 1-5 on the GameBoy. And fun was had by all.
