    By far my favorite PSP game yet. Not only is it an outstanding remake of an already fantastic game, but there's an entirely new version of the game with tons of replay value thanks to all of the unlockable characters.
  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. Powered Up is definitely the most comprehensive Mega Man game out there.

    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. Radically revamped graphics, a new adventure, an old adventure, unlimited challenge, and the amazing Construction mode add up to one very compelling package.

    A fun action experience with plenty of the old-school Mega Man platforming that everyone has come to love. [May 2006, p.92]

    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'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

    Very good game. If you like Mega Man, this is a MUST BUY. If you like infinite replay value, this is also a MUST BUY due to the level editor. Very good game. If you like Mega Man, this is a MUST BUY. If you like infinite replay value, this is also a MUST BUY due to the level editor. You actually get to build your own Mega Man levels which, I'm sorry, is something that most games SHOULD do, but don't. Solid game, great update on the graphics and just fun to play. Highly reommended. Expand

    Mega Man: Powered Up is, at its heart, a port of an NES game. Worse yet, it is a port of a 2D title to a 3D platform. However, unlike other Mega Man: Powered Up is, at its heart, a port of an NES game. Worse yet, it is a port of a 2D title to a 3D platform. However, unlike other 2D-3D ports (Bubsy 3D, Earthworm Jim 3D, etc), MM:PU maintains its 2D GAMEPLAY while moving to a polygonal world. Unfortunately, this means that there are some jumping bits that are hard (if not impossible) to judge thanks to the new look. Of course, this is a small price to pay for what you get here. Not only does MM:PU contain a direct conversion of the original Mega Man, it also offers a "new" game mode that shifts around levels slightly and offers two new bosses: Time Man and Oil Man. Add in an easy-to-use, lego-style level editor complete with its own download/ranking site and the ability to play through "new" mode with any boss character that you defeat using only Mega Man's default buster, and you have a surprisingly robust game that is well worth the cost of entry.

Besides, if you liked theThis 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.

The music is great. Its probably one of the best PSP games. I'm just not going to sit here and say its tons of fun and give it a high rating. It becomes excruciating / annoying halfway through. The ability to collect different objects in different areas gave it a replay factor. The weapons and transformations of Mega Man are excellent. Its probably one of the best Mega Man games. This series just hasn't changed at all. This is for original Mega Man fans that played it on NES. Expand
