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!

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.

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!

This is were it all begins folks. There is no earlier version of Mega Man than this. But this is probably the 2nd worst Mega Man game on the NES. It still earns a five star rating because I got moneys worth out of it. It took me 3 months to beat this. Let me put that into perspective. It took me a month to beat Battletoads. It took me two months to beat Castlevania 3. It took me 4 months to beat Adventure of Lolo FAMICOM. (Nobody will get this reference. But, for the one guy that does. Good for you) But this isn't a problem for me. No no no. I love brain boiling, sledgehammer slamming, evil, eye popping games. I fun them enjoyable. But there are some very important things you might want to be aware of before dropping a big ol Ulysses on this.

1. NO PASSWORDS. This is why it took me so long. You have to go from start. To finish. In one sitting. You got to go through Cut man, then Guts man, then Elec man, then Bomb man, then Fire man, then Ice man, and then you meat doctor Wily. I'm not going to tell you how to do it from there. By the time you get there you are so GOOD at this game it doesn't really matter. But if you want to call yourself a hardcore gamer. You need to have this in your resume.

2. The Gameplay. Since this is the first Mega Man game maybe I should explain what this whole Mega Man thing is. In this game you control are little blue bomber. MEGA MAN. Who was built by Dr. Light to stop the evil Dr. Wily form taking over the world. Dr. Wily has set up an array robots for you to defeat, and unlike Bowser, Gannon, or Gruntilda. Dr. Wily is throwing everything he has at you. You have a simple attack. Shoot. You can also jump as well. When you kill a boss you absorb there power to use whenever you wish. Also this game moves fast.
