If it's broke, don't fix it

Reviewed By: insectduel on 20 May 2021

The original 1.0 version of Rockman 2 Basic Master is okay despite the unfair difficulty in some sections and Rockman 6 Unique Harassment is well balanced except the boss fights. The 1.1 version is extremely broken not only the weapons themselves but there are flaws as well. You can get many extra lives and E-Tanks and then EXIT the level (by holding SELECT then START) BEFORE the boss is beaten which is not normal.

If Kuja Killer’s Mega Man 3 Improvement wasn’t allowed to use the exit feature in normal or doc robot levels before the boss is beaten or even the Wily stages, why not this game? It just defeats the purpose of this version.

Tatsu probably going to make another Rockman 2 hack with the new bosses, but then decided to update and release it 4 years after the 2017 release. Sadly it’s just a disappointment.

I recommend playing the 1.0 version instead unless you rather play this one if you don’t like unfair difficulty games.

Version 1.1 Recommended - No
