MegaMan: The Wily Wars Review

I’ve heard of the game for many years. A “secret” remake of the NES MegaMan games? Sounds too good to be true, and for Americans it certainly was too good to be true. Most of us never got to play it, but our good friends in both Japan and Europe had easy access to it.

This was no original MegaMan for the Sega Genesis in any way, shape, or form. This was merely a collection of MegaMan 1, 2, and 3 remade with 16-bit graphics and sound. Granted that’s exactly what they set out to do, and they’ve mastered it beautifully.

Each level is remade just how you remembered it. The only faults I can really give the game, is the fact that I’ve already played them plenty of times before. This was much higher quality stuff than a mere release on the Wii’s Virtual Console or in MegaMan Anniversary Collection for PS2.

I still have trouble wrapping my head around the fact that both Sega and Capcom flopped hard by not giving this game a proper American release. The game features 3 of some of the finest games on the NES, and if you haven’t played any of them, I recommend finding a copy of this no matter where you live. It’s just that good.

Score: 9 out of 10
