Rock Man 9 Video & Impressions
By Alan Hoskins on July 10th, 2008 (0 comments)
I was so excited about the Rock (Mega) Man 9 announcement. There was even a new trailer posted. After watching the trailer, I can kind of understand a little about what Brad was talking about. The visuals are quite a bit lacking. It's nice to see the classic look but having repeating backgrounds and patterned tiles is a little too 1990's. The music is great to have back in the retro style. And it's fine that it has the 8-bit feel to it, but I'm a little worried that there just aren't enough ideas to go around. The Mega Man games always had a problem with trying to keep things fresh while using the same beat the bosses formula. They added in things like the slide, sidekicks like Rush and Beat, and story characters like Protoman and Dr. Cossack. Seeing Mega Man using bubbles to get to high places is a little worrisome as the same technique was used in Mega Man 5 on Wave Man's stage. Overall though, it's nice to have a simple story where Dr. Wily is the villain, I'm most curious to see what will happen to the slow down that the old Mega Man games used to suffer from. Will it be a thing of the past because of the new technology or will it cause more problems if it is fixed?
