    Mega Man is back in his best entry in over a decade. The controls are tight, the quality of life changes such as button mapping Rush Coil, Rush Jet, and sliding are more than welcome, and the Double Gear system becomes second nature quickly. While the main game may seem short, and a lack of fan-favorite characters is disappointing, Mega Man 11 shines in everything it does include. This truly is the triumphant return of the Blue Bomber.

    The stages are beautifully designed, the music stands in serious competition with the best of the series, and the gameplay as a whole is an absolute joy to interact with.

    While Mega Man 11 isn't a perfect game, it's certainly a fun one, and it establishes a solid foundation for the Blue Bomber going forward. [Issue #36 – November/December 2018, p. 80]

    While some aspects of the game's presentation are surprisingly lackluster for the lauded series' triumphant return, Mega Man 11 still provides the satisfying and well-designed platforming that put Capcom on the map in the 80s.

    To celebrate its late 30th birthday, the Blue Bomber comes back with a strong 11th episode which finally takes some risks. The brand new Double Gear System breezes a fresh wind on the still satisfying classic mechanics of the series. With twisted boss fights and four very well-though difficulty modes, only the very meh soundtracks might deter you from calling back this old pal.

    Mega Man 11 doesn’t have to change video games, though, and it doesn’t have to inspire a new legion of followers. It just has to be as honest and good as it is.
  7. 70
    A Mega Man sequel that, despite its flash new looks and newb-friendly approach, conservatively touts the same formula Capcom has been using these past 30 years.

Personalmente encuentro que el diseño de niveles es uno de los mejores vistos en la saga y el estilo gráfico es muy acertado. Una compra obligada si te gusta la saga del bombardero azul Expand

I absolutely love Mega Man. I own the legacy collections and I've gotten dozen of hours from the blue bomber, so I had pretty high expectations for this game. Fortunately, this game is awesome and nowhere near a disappointment. The gameplay is some of the best in the series, and the art style is nice and vibrant. I love how Mega Man controls in this game. He stops when you let go of the thumbstick. His jumps have a nice weight, and when you miss that one precise jump, it feels like your fault. One complaint I have with the game are some of the animations. Mega Man is incredibly stiff when he moves. It's sorta akward. One great thing about this game is the music. I don't really understand why so many people dislike it. Sure, not all of them are that great, but just listen to Flash Man's stage. It gets the brain and heart pumping. The robot masters in this game are pretty great to be fair. The stages are really fun. Tundra and Flash Man's stages are very, very fun. To counteract amazing stages, you get Bounce Man. Those bouncy balls are traumatizing. In conclusion, this is a solid Mega Man game and is certainly worth your time if you're a fan of the series or trying to get into it. Expand

The infamously high difficulty is certainly back as well, but this time there are also some more forgiving settings. Newcomers can play through easier settings to work their way up, but the real draw of Mega Man has always been its challenging, yet fair gameplay. If you're not being challenged and don't enjoy at least a bit of a challenge, then this title is likely not for you.

    In terms of visuals, the game is quite stunning. The backgrounds for most stages are quite diverse and everything flows well. The mechanics have changed slightly in how the series is played with the addition of the Double Gear system, but for the most part it isn't something that you need to rely on in order to complete the game—proving that there's even more challenges beyond settings that are out there waiting. Fans that may have feared that Mega Man's movement and jumping may have changed can rest easy; though the titular character's motions are a little different visually, it doesn't impede the feel that players come to expect.

    However, there are some downsides. For one, the game is very short. The main story can be completed by most within 2 hours. The game may run at a lower price of $30, but even at that price I don't think it's worth jumping into. Time trials and other features don't make up for the lack of a solid story. Not that one would expect a Mega Man game to have some elaborate story, but still, this is bare bones.

    I like that since instruction manuals are no longer existent (despite the price of games remaining high), there is a lot of information to access within the extras of Mega Man 11. For example: if you're into reading more about the robot masters and lesser enemies, there is a bio for all of them. That's some solid depth to make up for other missing aspects. Mega Man 11 is an excellent pick up for newcomers and old school fans alike, but I'd shoot for a lower purchase price, especially if you're not a diehard.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Mega Man 11 definitely brings back old-school Mega Man with a good coat of paint. The challenge of the stages remains the same but adds power-ups to help the player in tougher spots. My only issue is that it feels like cheating to use the upgrade that gives you normal speed when using the speed gear, as you can bypass almost any obstacle with ease. Despite this, I still found this game to be an enjoyable and challenging experience and hope for more Mega Man content in the future. Expand

    Two single words. Hateful hard. Easiest level=hard level in final castle. Didn’t buy again if I knew this. Wasted money, time and health.
