Almost as good as Rockman 4 Minus Infinity, but has some difficulty issues

Reviewed By: Supergamerguy on 24 Dec 2021

I’d like to start off by saying that I love this hack. Just like Puresabe’s previous work, Rockman 4: Minus Infinity, it completely redesigns the existing levels to take advantage of entirely new themes and level elements. Most of this feels organic and fitting for Mega Man’s abilities. Water where you can move freely throughout in Burst Man’s stage, getting to ride a Truck Joe’s vehicle in Turbo Man’s stage, Donkey-Kong-Country-styled thorny mazes and Mega-Man-9-styled zero-gravity hot springs in Spring Man’s stage, Gradius-styled fire hazards in Junk Man’s stage, and more! Plus, the new Robot Master fights are a lot of fun, and the new patterns feel right at home in the Mega Man series.

However, this hack isn’t perfect. I personally hate that the Mega Man 8 snowboarding sections were incorporated into this hack, and, while it isn’t *as* punishing as it is in its source material, that section in Freeze Man’s stage is just as *unenjoyable* as the snowboarding in Mega Man 8. But the real issues come from the Wily stages. The difficulty spike here is massive, especially if you don’t have the Ultimate Armor (I’ve forgotten its official name in this hack), which costs 999 bolts to obtain (there’s no other way to get it). And the enemy gauntlet before Bass (the true final boss) is just a slog, there’s no other way to put it. Yes, Rush, Eddie, Beat, and Auto come in to help you, but the gauntlet just seems like another way to sap your health and pad out the game’s runtime.

But no other part of the game is worse than the WILY FIGHT. Puresabe apparently took the complaints about Mega Man 7’s difficult final fight against Wily to heart and made it nigh impossible. The first phase isn’t too bad, but the second phase is extremely hard to hit without the Ultimate Armor. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, compares to what the third phase is like though. It’s quite literally the definition of the words “unfair” and “brutal.” You have to have quick reflexes, a turbo setting for your controller or the power of button spam, and RNG on your side to beat Wily. Just watch a video of the final fight to see what I mean. Bass pales in comparison to this third phase, if you even manage to get there.

Despite all this, I still enjoyed the majority of this game. I would recommend this to any Mega Man fan, given that you have enough experience in the genre to tackle tough challenges.

Version 1.02 Recommended - Yes
