    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.

    Mega Man 11 is both the most accessible entry in the franchise to date and the most demanding, due to the difficulty options and challenge modes. The Blue Bomber makes good on his return with classic platforming and skirmishes with rogue robots augmented by the addition of the Double Gear System, affecting both how you approach the game and how the boss battles unfold by allowing for different forms throughout.

    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.

    It's not revolutionary, but Mega Man 11 feels almost like a classic Mega Man game, and is a good foundation for the next 10 games.

    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.
    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!!

As a Mega Man fan since the NES days, I felt right at home from the get go despite there being some modern stuff that wasn't there in the 80s. The stages are superlong and difficult (I played on Normal), the feeling of mastering a stage after many game overs is so good!! One thing I didn't felt was tight were the controls. Most of the time they were fluid and responsive but at times they felt inaccurate and sluggish and led to a few unnecessary deaths. Expand

For starters it controls too much like those games, despite the fact that controls have improved greatly since then, yet at the same time it has moments in it's stages that are very much like Mega Man X, which is fine, but a little jarring given the differences between the two series.

    The stages themselves are mostly fantastic, but Bounce Man's is unbearably annoying to get used to and the controls making it even worse. The story is okay, but the voice acting is abysmal, like Mighty No. 9 bad at times, to the point where you wonder why they had it in the first place, and it just doesn't work as well as it should.

    If anything, a Mega Man Classic game in this style is fine, but it's also a reminder that we need to move on from that style a bit, because it's very nature in this day and age means it's going to be lacking in some regards. Releasing a Mega Man Classic style as an occasional side project is fine, but I'd rather have a game in the X, Mega Man Zero, or Legends style nay day of the week.

    Still, for it's shortcomings and frustrations, this game can be a ton of fun, and that's the main point of any game, to be enjoyable. I just, think I would have enjoyed it more if it were called Mega Man X9 or god forbid, Mega Man Legends 3.
