Mega Man Powered Up
4.5 Star Review  GameZone - Mar 28, 2006

The Mega Man series has been around for nearly 20-years now, and just as many releases later it seems like the Blue Bomber is still going strong. Over this time period the series has definitely gone through its ups and downs; we’ve seen best with the likes Mega Man 2, and we’ve been forced to deal with the worst as well with Mega Man X7. But even through the bad, it’s hard to deny that Mega Man has a subtle charm about him, even when things become frustrating it’s hard to hold a grudge. This might explain why he has managed to invade nearly every console during his lifetime, and even though they might not all have been perfect; they have at least been creative.

Great Game
5 Star Review   By member skasundr - Feb 18, 2007   

Strengths: FUN, Addictive Play, Autosave, Low Price

Weakness: Characters (even bad guys and bosses) look uber-cute

I wanted a simple but highly fun game to play for short periods of time. This game fits the bill - autosave function lets you save and resume at a later time. Since it is the exact megaman game from back in the day, no need to comment on how fun the game itself is. Would definitely recommend, especially with the sub-$20 pricetag!

Awesome remake
5 Star Review   By member swordity - Feb 15, 2007   

Strengths: Classic Mega Man gameplay with a facelift, two new bosses

Weakness: controls are a little weird sometimes.

Mega Man 1 for the NES is one of the best sidescrollers of all time, and this remake only makes it better. There are two new bosses to fight, so it's not all of the same old Mega Man 1. The only thing that annoyed me was the Yellow Devil boss fight changed so as hard as it was to do in the original it's now hard, but different and you have to get used to it all over again.

A great remake of a slightly fun game
5 Star Review   By member slightnighter - Jan 22, 2007   

Strengths: New levels, new enemy and boss attacks, new bosses, and a graphical remake of the first game.

Weakness: New boss levels are easy to run through

In somewhat of a shocker, Capcom has remade the original MegaMan game for the PSP. Unlike some developers who just update a game's graphics and do not remix the games levels or enemies, Capcom has both remade the game and also created the original game's levels and enemies using this enhanced engine while keeping the old NES music intact. The remake "New Style" enhances the enemies by quite a few of them different attack patterns and abilities. Cutman, for instance, can throw a large blade across the floor and walls that also returns to him while Bombman throws a huge bomb at Megaman. The Sniper Joes only take one shot before hiding behind their shields, which make them harder to hit. The game also has selectable difficulty modes, so it appeals to all gamers. Like I said before, the levels have been remixed. They have all the original elements of the original game, but they have been placed in different places. The new levels for Timeman and Oilman also have things like oil slicks that can ignite with fire and things like that, but they are easy to run through. The game also has challenges for all the characters (that includes bosses as well) which range from reaching a goal to defeating a certain enemy to breaking party balls. Also, players can collect construction packs throughout the game to create custom levels, which allow for an infinite amount of play time. Overall, this is one of the best remakes of an older title I've ever seen. If you have a PSP, you should pick this up even if you have played the game before on the NES. 9.0/10

Fun game, great remake!
5 Star Review   By member merlis - Dec 27, 2006   

Strengths: Strengthened the original NES Megaman in graphics and voices. Offers a chance to modify the difficulties. Many play modes and mini games available.

Weakness: The sounds effects are better but the music is not good as the original one.

This is a interesting game. You can play not only Megaman but also all the Bosses and even the girl assistant robot, that is very fun! In addition, it is very user-frendly to let players modify the difficulties. The easy mode is exactly that:very easy, so players can learn how to control Megaman in this mode before trying the harder modes. Moreover, players can create their own stages and download stages that other players made. There are 100 mini games that players can challenge. In summary, I strongly recommend this game to not only Megaman fans but also non-ACT players. You would love it!

One of the best PSP games
4 Star Review   By member sram27 - Dec 23, 2006   

Strengths: Interesting and lot of variety.

Weakness: addictive

There are two versions for this game a) newly designed levels and b) classic version. It suits the old player and also new player It has colourful graphics; and interestingly has an editor that lets one create your own designs; (I have not tried it yet) The challenge mode is highly addictive. and the levels go on with higher level of difficulties. On the whole it would be a good game for the PSP collection

MegaMan Powered Up
4 Star Review   By member trunks982 - Oct 20, 2006   

Strengths: Great graphics, cute characters

Weakness: Pretty hard

If you like Megaman games, you will like this one. This is a remake of the original Megaman for the Nintendo Entertainment System. It contains the new remake version and the classic style stages with better graphics. When you beat some of the stages, you can unlock bosses and use them to play through the stages. You can unlock Gutsman and Cutman. The graphics are good and the character designs are cute. The game isn't as hard as the NES version to me. I recommend you to pick it up. It's $19.99 in stores.

Classic Redefined
5 Star Review   By member n00b_saibot - Sep 25, 2006   

Strengths: Remake of the original Mega Man + A New Version that differs from the original + Loads of extra content!

Weakness: Very HARD! (if you consider that a weakness)

This is a must have for PSP owners. Cheap Price & you get basically 2 different games. Old Style is just like the original Mega Man with updated graphics. New Style is brand new (hence the title) and even allows you to unlock the Bosses! Plus there's 100 challenges to complete. As well as downloadable content. What are you waiting for? GRAB this game NOW!

Mega Man Powered Up
5 Star Review   By member StashEX - Sep 2, 2006   

Strengths: A worthy remake in every way

Weakness: Graphics could have been better

I'm amazed by how great this game turned out. As a Mega Man fan, I only had lukewarm expectations for this title but Capcom far surpassed them. Powered Up is a remake of the original Mega Man and adds to the legendary gameplay of Mega Man. The graphics could have been better, but when the gameplay is refined to the point of near perfection, it really doesn't matter. This is possibly the best game on the psp and worth every penny at retail.

Mega Man Powered Up (PSP)
3 Star Review   By member cotebryan - Aug 23, 2006   

Strengths: Because it is a remake, you get to challenge the original, perhaps most interesting Bosses, plus 2 new ones. Short, but lots of replayability.

Weakness: Overall "kiddie" presentation does not appeal to older gamers. Since it is a remake of the 1st NES MegaMan, you may not appreciate it as much if you played the original.

Mega Man Powered Up (PSP) is a good game, especially considering its relatively low price. At first, I was turned off by the overdone kiddie "saturday-morning-anime" style, voices and dialog. The presentation is clearly aimed at younger gamers. After some playtime, I got past the presentation and appreciated this game for its appealing old-school gameplay. It is also a nice portable game because many of the levels can be played through in about 5-7 minutes once you get familiar with them. However, the more upgrades you earn the more each level is accessible, which encourages repeated plays. There are too many logo sequences and intros that you have to skip each time you boot it up, though. Really, when someone picks up a portable game they probably don't want to have to skip through many intro sequences, let alone wait for them to load before they can be skipped. Overall, a good game.

Blue Bomber is back!!
5 Star Review   By member mirado182 - Jul 31, 2006   

Strengths: Echanced graphics, portable, make your own stages and share them with friends!

Weakness: If you've played this before, you played it before

I was drawn in by the cute cover art and the words, Mega Man. This is basically a remake of old school Mega Man back in the day. Everything is enchanced and you can even make your own levels. You can also get levels from friends and play them. This is a solid buy.
