Mega Man: Dr Wily's Revenge Review

The series' handheld debut returns

Since Mega Man was so successful on the NES, it's unsurprising that he made the leap over to the Game Boy, too.

There were five Mega Man games in total, but this first one is probably the weakest of the bunch. It offers a measly four bosses (compared to the eight you usually get in Mega Man games), then when you defeat those you get the final Dr Wily stages, where you meet another four.

These bosses are a selection from the first two Mega Man games, so if you've played those you'll be a tad underwhelmed.

Mega Man's famous difficulty remains, but when the game's this short it's really for completists only. Wait for the other four much better Game Boy entries.

    Trust me folks, its still well worth a pop. Unless you're a megaman Ninja (i sure as hell am not) it'll still last.

    Got this yesterday I like it a lot I think it's worth a play if you like mega man.
    It is a tad difficult but it's still great fun. Maybe the nes versions will be released soon I would be very happy if they are. :D

    This one is actually quite decent and will make do until more Mega Man games come out for the 3DS.

    #2 is actually the worst GB game.
