Mega Man II (NES)

We kick off Mega Man Week with a look at one of the Blue Bomber's most beloved entries -- Mega Man 2. Featuring such baddies as Wood Man, Metal Man, Heat Man and Crash Man, this is always the game fans list as their favorite 8-bit Mega Man adventure. Did critics agree when they reviewed it back in 1989? We dig through old issues of Computer + Video Games, Nintendo Magazine System and Electronic Gaming Monthly to find the answers.

Mega Man in Dr. Wily's Revenge (Game Boy)
After seeing what critics thought of the first two Mega Man games, it's time to turn our attention to his first Game Boy title -- Mega Man in Dr. Wily's Revenge. By taking several levels and bosses from previous console releases, this portable action game acts like a Mega Man's Greatest Hits album. Will critics love the Blue Bomber even when he's in black and white, or is this one franchise that should have stayed on the Nintendo Entertainment System? We dig through old issues of Electronic Gaming Monthly, Nintendo Power and GamePro for the answers.

Mega Man X (Super NES)

After annual sequels on the Nintendo Entertainment System and Game Boy, it was only a matter of time before Capcom brought the Blue Bomber to the Super NES. Mega Man X is a futuristic spin-off with a brand new cast of characters and bosses, all based on different types of animals. Were critics on board with all these changes, or had they finally grown sick of the Mega Man formula? We dig through issues of GamePro, Game Players, Electronic Gaming Monthly, Die Hard Game Fan and Super Play to find the answers.
