I know my video game blogs are the least read, but I actually do have people asking me to review them from time to time. I just think its good to talk about a variety of topics so that people know I can have a life beyond politics.
The level design is uninspired and literally oversaturated with spikes. It’s as if they got a 14 year old as their chief designer whose core design philosophy was, “and then, for the next big surprise, we’ll put spikes on the wall!”
To make it all worse they couldn’t have even been bothered to at least make this game look as good as Mega Man 8 (if 8 can be called good). To date Mega Man 8 remains the best looking game of the series, and given that this entry to the series came out in the late 90s making a comparable 2D side-scroller comparable to its predecessor could have been done on the cheap as well. It would not have been much more of an investment for Capcom to put some real effort into this game beyond spikes… and more spikes, and still more spikes…. Oh and did I mention spikes? In fact why don’t they just do a Spike Man robot mater at this point and get it over with?
