In 2018 after 30 years of unforgettable adventures the fight for everlasting peace continues! The tight action-platformer gameplay that made the series a success is alive and well. To save the day, the Blue Bomber must battle Robot Masters and take their powerful weapons for himself, which now changes the hero's appearance with new levels of detail. A new, vivid visual style refreshes the series' iconic colorfulness, combining hand-drawn environments with detailed, 3D character models. Expand

    Mega Man 11 is truly a memorable experience and is one of Mega’s finest adventures and it is highly recommended. The 8 bosses are all clever in design and their levels are very appropriate as well. Even if one made me almost rage quit. (Yes, you Bounce Man!) In a year with amazing games, I can see Mega Man 11 in my top 5 of 2018.

    If you're a fan of Mega Man but feel uneasy about how Mega Man 11 looks or adds to the formula, don't. This is a fantastic 2D action game worthy of the Blue Bomber's name.

    The Blue Bomber is back, and if you were ever a fan of his adventures, then you should pick Mega Man 11 up. It’s a solid entry in the Mega Man franchise, and it will make you remember why you fell in love with this super fighting robot all over again.

    Even if it could stand to benefit from a little something extra, this is still a triumphant return for the Blue Bomber. Mega Man 11 is another stellar entry in the series, plain and simple. The classic gameplay still works as well as it did years ago, and the newer touches courtesy of the graphical enhancements and the Double Gear system are welcome additions.

    This deftly made return to Mega Man revives the core series beyond being a novel retro throwback, giving it a gorgeous coat of fresh paint at the same time. [Issue#155, p.94]

    No crucial changes, no revolution – that’s new Mega Man’s primary problem. It’s a really good platformer, but it lacks a spark, so I won’t try to make everyone I meet play it, like I did with Mega Man X. If you’re not passionate about the little blue robot, you can sit this one out. [12/2018, p.88]

    But the game’s most egregious wrong is its stiff controls, which are reminiscent of those in Mega Man 7, the worst title in the series.

    From where do I even start? First of all, I never write reviews, but this game just deserves it.

    It's something very emotional for me. Dating back in 2000, the NES was still rocking the day and my brother just got the first PC with some of the first PC games for us, but there was something very intriguing that for me in the game Mega Man 3, that made me play all of the entries in the series. Not only did I pass all of the mainline series, but the entire spin offs and everything Mega Man. It was sad for 8 long years to see capcom let him what seems like - death? No, never. He rose from the ashes with this blast - Mega Man 11! The game sure is the blue-bomber in all it's glory, in fact it goes well beyond that. It's a fantastic package, provides something for absolutely everybody with re-playability value through the roof. One of the most important things is to go blindly your first run at least. The treat you will get from finding the boss weakness chain is unmatched in any other games, but Mega Man. Returning it to the original form made it a true shining in the darkness amidst so called spiritual-successors like Mighty No.9 that flopped. I am not saying there aren't games that are as awesome as 20XX, but those are quite rare to find, if any other. Capcom proved that they can achieve something so good, they put a lot of care for all you blue-bomber fans as well as gathering new audience. Go buy Mega Man 11, you owe it to yourself. The game's near perfection and never ever does it drop frame-rate!

    All of you who grew up with the blue-bomber, you'll surely love it and if you find the voices irritating you can turn them off, but trust me that the voices are quite good and passionate for a Mega Man game(ahem Mega Man 8 I'm looking at you and your Dr. Wah-wee).

    The moment you fire up the game and get to the menu it will feel just like the first time you've booted your NES cartridge! If you're like me and grew up with someone you lost on your side watching you play it, this will surely be a great moment and may even make you cry, so go show your support to this beauty that Capcom made and let's not let Mega Man die again!!

I'm going to cut against the grain and say that the Double Gear system is one of the chief factors in the game being as strong of an update as it is - the gameplay's been tweaked so that using the Gear intelligently is necessary to deal gracefully with a large part of the game while still feeling unmistakably like the same classic jump-and-shoot fans have been enjoying for decades.
    I also find myself enjoying the concessions to modern storytelling sensibilities in this installment, as small as most of them are. The story's still predominantly an excuse for a brace of bosses and platforming challenges -and wouldn't feel out of place in a Saturday morning cartoon show besides- but this one's as close to having any real substance as one has ever gotten and gives us some surprising meat on a few of the characters.
    Some surprising thought has also gone into what the Robot Masters are this time around, and what their places would actually be within the setting. This leads to some really fun and surprisingly inventive stage concepts for the series, including a campground in the middle of a raging wildfire (complete with midboss fight against the camp's mascot) and a Universal Studios-esque theme park laced with pyrotechnic effects. Optional text blurbs about enemies and masters add even more setting details without intruding on the actual gameplay.
    My one complaint about the game would be that it hasn't been quite as successful modernizing its older style of gameplay as recent throwback games like Shovel Knight - It insists on tying itself to an arbitrary lives system, which can sometimes destroy pacing. Being forced to rerun entire levels due to a run of bad luck near the end made sense as a form of enforced pacing when the size of games was relatively limited, but games have long outgrown the mechanic and it's distracting here - an ugly cumbersome appendix on an otherwise perfectly calibrated update to the series. Here's hoping Capcom continues to build on its advantage and we see a Mega Man 12 that puts this to shame.

Hablando en rasgos generales sobre el juego en cuanto a diseño de niveles y enemigos este tiene detalles innovadores y algunos un tanto similares a títulos anteriores pero dando un toque de aire fresco haciéndolo destacar por si solo, los llamados "robots masters" tienen su propio carisma, estética original, movimientos, ataques, y ataques especiales que los hacen ser muy recordados, si bien son algo similares a jefes de títulos anteriores haciéndonos recordar a aventuras de antaño esto no es un problema ni mucho menos, es un total acierto, por el hecho de tomar conceptos y características y convertirlos en algo novedoso y disfrutable. Hablando sobre la apariencia de personajes, al derrotar a cada jefe, este a diferencia de otras entregas permite a megaman lucir un traje con características del jefe que venció, siendo que anteriormente solo se limitaba a un cambio de color, algo que ya se volvió común y de costumbre de ver, sin dudas es un detalle bien implementado para hacer sentir un poco mas novedoso al titulo que se agradece. Hablando de la jugabilidad este implementa un nuevo sistema llamado "doble gear" cambiando la velocidad del entorno y de megaman, o haciendo mas potente nuestro mega buster, siendo esta de uso limitado, siendo de gran apoyo a los jugadores que comienzan a conocer la franquicia y para los fans mas acerrimos a esta, ademas, cabe destacar que es una mecánica nunca antes vista en la saga que encaja a la perfección, no siendo cien por ciento necesaria para la aventura, solo una opcion amigable que nos facilitara el camino y/o nos hará disfrutar mas de el. En cuento sountracks es cierto que este capitulo peca de cierta manera al tener música algo genérica, que realmente no es muy recordable como la de anteriores aventuras,sin embargo, existen excepciones, principalmente el soundtrack de 2 jefes en especial y en el escenario del castillo de willy, lamentablemente los demas no logran igualarse a estos, o a los temas de anteriores entregas, pero, estos elementos siguen siendo de una calidad mas que aceptable y disfrutable en el momento de la acción. En cuanto a narrativa existió mucha expectativa sobre si la obra se atrevería a tomar la desicion de unir la saga clásica con la saga "X" porque bien sabemos que hay una gran incógnita sobre el paradero de nuestros heroes como Megaman, Roll, Auto, Beat, Dr. Light, Rush, protoman, etc puesto que su secuela directa no nos da indicios explícitos de que sucedió con ellos. Este nuevo capitulo, toma una trama un tanto mas simple, enfocándose en una problemática bastante sencilla, incluso mas aun que en cualquier entrega anterior, ni siquiera dejando algo que comentar sobre ella, aunque, si bien es simple, para un juego como megaman este por lejos no es el apartado principal, ya que puede ignorarse y disfrutarse de igual modo, aun que dejando con in sabor agridulce al jugador, hablando de la estética de la pantalla de inicio, opciones, desafíos, etc, esta bastante bien, es simple y de fácil acceso para cualquier jugador, sin lograr mayor confusión a la hora de querer comenzar la aventura. Sobre el modo desafíos extras, este tiene gran variedad de modos que logran ser del agrado del jugador, al poner prueba sus habilidades de presicion, rapidez, destreza, etc. que logran entretener por horas, aunque bien recomiendo probarlo después de completar la aventura principal. En general, este es un juego de Megaman con todas sus letras, tiene novedades atractivas y mas que destacables, una jugabilidad cómoda y fluida, niveles bien estructurados, jefes memorables en cada aspecto, música aceptable y una diversión que solo se puede sentir en las aventuras del "bombardero azul". Solo queda dar las gracias a Capcom por darnos esta gran nueva aventura, y por abrirle camino a mas títulos de otras sagas de este mismo, un titulo que sin duda te hará sentir volver a la época en donde todo parecía perfecto y nuestra única preocupación era una y otra vez salvar al mundo de malvado doctor Wily, sin lugar a dudas es gusto total, un maravilloso juego.

    8/10 because of how Megaman and his foes scream when they die. Also, the controls could be improved.

    Boss characters: excellent design and diversity of weapons/attacks, both playing against them and obtaining their weapons. Quite possibly theBoss characters: excellent design and diversity of weapons/attacks, both playing against them and obtaining their weapons. Quite possibly the most useful array of weapons since Mega Man 2.

    Stages: terribly painful and brutal at times. Expect pixel-perfect alignment for necessary jumps and nigh-perfect timing for jumps, shots, etc. in ALL levels to avoid taking a HUGE amount of damage. Overall level design, in terms of graphics & colors, is quite excellent and creative.

    Difficulty Settings: even veteran players who have finished other Mega Man games will have a brutally difficult time on Normal. Newcomer makes the game playable but cheesily easy to defeat the bosses (but necessary in order to deal with the overwhelming number of times the player would normally die). Casual doesn't seem any less difficult that Normal, unfortunately, and gods help anyone who willingly chooses Hard mode.

    Unless you really enjoy beating your head against a wall when playing through games on Normal mode, take a hard pass on this game. It will induce rage quits due to the shoddy mechanics necessary to pass through any given level on all modes.
