5.0 out of 5 stars The original Mega Man that started it all... October 31, 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I became a Mega Man "freak" back in 1991. The moment I played this game, I never looked back. Although the Mega Man series would become very successful over 25+ years, this particular installment has one of the best soundtracks EVER. Each level, including the Dr. Wily levels, has too-awesome-for-words music that you will want to hear over and over again. I'm also in awe of the sound effects. It would have been really nice if Capcom had released a CD soundtrack comprised of the Mega Man series.

Although there is no level that I didn't like, my favorites in particular are Bomb Man, Cut Man and Ice Man. And of course, the most satisfying part of ANY Mega Man game is facing Dr. Wily! Unfortunately, Energy Tanks weren't invented yet, so he is extremely difficult to beat! I used Elec Man's weapon to easily do the job.

Each sequel from here on out would become better and better. Mega Man 3 and Mega Man 5 are my actual favorites of the series, for obvious reasons. But for any newcomer/gamer who hasn't tried even ONE Mega Man game yet, what are you waiting for?? Download it for your Wii or Nintendo 3DS -- you won't be sorry!

3.0 out of 5 stars Childhood memories January 2, 2004
By A Customer
I was in the 6th grade when I first played Megaman (in 1988). This one was different from most games of the time for two reasons: A) You could pick which stage to go to! and B)you were able to obtain your opponent's weapons! Those two factors more than any others are what made megaman a winner.
The premise:
Dr. Wright's partner (in the other games he's known as Dr. Light) Dr. Wily goes mad, steals the industrial robots they created together, attempts to reprogram "Rock" who resists programming and left behind to be found by Dr. Wright. "Rock" volunteers to be transformed from (I think he was a butler or something) into a fighting robot: Megaman, thus Megaman begins his very, very, very, very, very loooooooooooooooong journey to bring Dr. Wily to justice.
Game play:
For its time, the original megaman had superb game play. The ability to selct which stage you wanted to tackle, the ability to use the vanquished robot masters weapons and indeed, the ability to go back to the stage you defeated and defeat the robot master again all contributed to the superb game play of megaman. These factors actually make it superior to megaman 2 and 3 where you cannot return to any previosuly beaten stage. Even in subsequen megamans where you can return to beaten stages, you cannot refight the vanquished robot masters.
Also, you can pause this one with the select button, which is something of a trick because you can defeat difficult enemies by pausing and unpausing repeatedly. Unfortunately, when you go to the subscreen, or unpause when you're on a latter, megaman lets go (well, he doesn't just let go, he shoots down a couple of rungs).
Another thing pertaining to gameplay that's different about this one is the scoreboard. You collect points for defeating enemies.

4.0 out of 5 stars The first in an incredible video game series February 8, 2003
The original Mega Man, while rough around the edges, is still a classic in every way. I know many that didn't like it as much as, say, Mega Mans 2 or 4, but you have to realize that this game (with no passwords, energy tanks, rush, etc.) was made back in the day when Nintendo games kicked your [...] and forced you to love them. I still play this every now and then mainly because it's very challenging and still has some replay value to it. Mega Man 2 proved to be easier and was the one that made Mega Man a household name. Rough, hard, but still a great game. Besides, it began the series, so it should be given good credit!

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
When Capcom released MEGA MAN (or ROCKMAN in Japan), they could have had little idea that they just launched their biggest franchise, nor would it be possible for the buying public to realise this character would go on to become the most prolific game character ever.

His first game, an action platformer from 1987, famously introduced the concept of chosing your own order in which to beat the stages. Not only that, when you defeat the boss of that level, you get his/her powers, and can use these powers against other robot masters. While the weaknesses had some logic in them in the first three games, as it is based off the game Paper, Rock, Scissors, the further we got along in the MM series the less that analogy really worked (seriously, why is Tomahawk Man in MM VI weak too ?). While the game itself is pretty linear, MM still gave the players a rather remarkable sense of freedom in the 1980s. While the concept has since been beat to death, if you're from that generation of players you can't help but appreciate MM's rather daring game play. But that doesn't mean it's a perfect game. Not by a long shot.

The game has some of the most notorious cover art in video game history. The cover art has absolutely nothing to do with the game, and Mega Man looks like a forty five year old man holding a gun in some bizarre futuristic place.

Like most franchise that began in the 1980s (Castlevania, Metroid, Kid Icarus, Ninja Gaiden, Mario, The Legend of Zelda, and several others), this first game may seem a little bit rough compared to later installments. While arguably SMB could be released in today's game market with little or no changes, games like Metroid, the first Zelda, and this title would never be released without some significant revisions.
