    There is nothing new in this game that wasn't in its PlayStation predecessor. But it does feature all of the same flaws, right down to a disjointed camera system, insulting control scheme, naked graphics and poorly mixed elements from the action and RPG genres.
  2. Those who missed out on the PlayStation version could still find a good bit of entertainment value here, but this dated title simply can't compete on the same level as current software.
  3. Nothing was done to improve upon the game, and those that want 3D adventure will find much better courts in "Banjo-Tooie" and other games.
  4. With a lot of exploring and mostly the same old shooting technique as before, Mega Man qualifies as a run-of-the-mill action RPG. Fans of the man will enjoy it.
  5. Make weapons out of trash! (Disclaimer: probably not advisable as a real-life hobby.)
  6. A decent game that could have been great if it had been released three years ago.

    I couldn't play more than a few minutes of this awful port. Seriously, play this on any other platform, even PC. You'll have a betterI couldn't play more than a few minutes of this awful port. Seriously, play this on any other platform, even PC. You'll have a better experience. While the setting and music are okay, the controls are diabolical and the voice acting is only impressive if you've just been playing Sonic Adventure. Full Review »
