  • Summary: Mega Man is on a quest to restore peace in the world after Dr. Wily takes control of several robots in hopes to rule the planet. Completely re-designed for the PSP with new bosses and puzzles to master, Mega Man Powered Up is the only action platformer that lets gamers create their own levels and share with friends. Totally redesigned level structure - every level features modified map structures as well as varied item locations. Intuitive level editor option allows endless possibilities. Players can design their own stages creating challenges that are only limited by their own imagination. Customize everything from enemy and object placement to music. Mega Man Challenge 100 – take a break from the main story mode by putting skills to the test in 100 different short stages, each with its own objectives and challenges. Play as any of the eight boss robots in the game – utilize their unique abilities and characteristics to zip past obstacles. [Capcom] Expand

    It's a truckload of fun, controls tightly, never lets the player down with framerate issues, offers an obscene amount of things to see and do, all the while oozing charm, personality and unbridled quality from every one of its robotic nooks and crannies (now there's a nice image to take with you).
  2. Nearly every aspect of this game is perfect, and despite its historic roots, becomes a 'must own,' not only for Mega Man fans, but for every PSP owner out there.
  3. 90
    Definitely give Powered Up a chance, even if you have never been a fan of the series I guarantee you will find plenty to love in this game.
  4. Mega Man Powered Up shows its Mega Man heritage by being cheap at times and somewhat short in length, but it delivers in just about every way you could hope for, given that it's basically a remake of a game that's almost 20 years old. [Apr 2006, p.133]
  5. 80
    Capcom have done a sterling job of updating the game for the PSP and this is a very fine example of what can be achieved on the platform.
  6. 80
    While it's still Mega Man at heart, it's managed to grow up while also staying young. It's a gaming anomaly, but one that's worth a serious look.
  7. There's little speed, skill or urgency to any of the platform/shooting action - making this another ignominous entry in Mega Man's CV. [Apr 2006, p.100]

    I've heard of this game. I'd love the facts that you can play as the Robot Masters, but it's worth the challenge when it comes to defeating them in normal mode with the Mega Buster. Not only you can as the bosses, but you can create your own levels and publish them online. I don't know why Capcom wouldn't make us Mega Man Powered Up 2. There's no reason why this game is underrated. I loved everything about this game so much there's nothing negative to say about it. The music should be fixed, but otherwise, please buy this game. I'll give this game an A+ and it's worth buying. Expand

    This game has the essence of the first Mega Man for NES. Capcom has redesigned it with updated graphics and music. Besides, if you liked the game when it was released in the 80s, this is much more challenging. You can even play with all the boss characters as if they were the real Mega. Besides, there are several challenges for each of them which makes this game longer. A special characteristic of this game is the level editor, which is not really difficult to get used to. Apart from this, you can upload your stage to a web server where you can download other levels made from fans.

    Truly recommendable.
