Rockman 2: Basic Master - EXCELLENT

Reviewed By: Dobu_GM on 27 Apr 2019

Rockman 2: Basic Master

Levels: Excellent

Graphics: Excellent

Music: Good

Enemies: Excellent

Bosses: Excellent (One is BAD)

Weapons: Excellent

Castle: Excellent

Difficulty: HARD

Comments: Basic Master is a very extensive and—dare I say—masterful hack. There are a huge amount of amazing changes to the hack, from the nearly new enemy lineup, to the wild weapon changes, to the cool idea to change up boss AI when their health is halfway down. Levels are wonderfully designed and the game is tough as nails, really forcing you to work to earn your victories. Your mileage may vary on the game’s difficulty (a lot of robot masters are brutal or nearly impossible with just the mega buster), but at least the new Item 1 and Item 2 offer the player a bit of help. Be warned—the completely new boss that replaces the Boobeam (Wily 4) is pretty atrocious, being a difficult fight that you have to complete 80% with the mega buster, which takes fooooreeeevvvveeerrrrrrrr. If you can overlook that stupid boss (and the hit-or-miss soundtrack), Basic Master is sure to deliver an absolutely sublime (and vicious) Mega Man 2 experience.
