I changed my username recently, so I figure I'd pitch my RPG review wiki again:

The latest review, and my first of the year, is for Parasite Eve II:

I'm a reviewer myself, and mainly play RPGs, so here's my personal review wiki: http://jmgreviews.wikidot.com

Mega Man was one of the very first games I had ever played in my gaming history. I remember borrowing Mega Man 2 from his friend and just watching him play and play. He got me into it and to say the least, I was addicted. Surprisingly, he never beat Mega Man, the first title. I have and it was such a pain to do so.

Fast Forward 19 years later and I come to Mega Man 9, all in its 8-bit glory. Inafune decided to return the series to its roots and I bet that he is swimming in money right about now.

Mega Man 9 takes place in 20XX. Robots are going out of control and their creator, Dr. Light, is being framed. Mega Man must step up to the plate to clear his name.

THE GAME IS DIFFICULT!! THIS IS YOUR ONLY WARNING!!

The game plays like it did in the old days and the control scheme is pretty simple to get used to.

You can get bolts from downed enemies or around each stage and use them to buy items such as 1-ups, No Helmet, 1/2 damage and so forth. However, if you are new to the Mega Man scene, you will be visiting the shop often to get more lives and E-Tanks.

The bosses attacks patterns are the likes which I have never seen. However, it is this kind of charm and challenge that make me beg for more; even when I drop and F-bomb left and right, I always come back to kick some scrap metal.

Try before you buy and see if this is a good title for you.

I expected more from Too Human. I even had it on reserve at one point before I took it off. Story aside, the targeting system sucks. Even when you down an enemy, the reticule is still there. There aren't many skills to the skill tree as well. Plus, I get weapons very often that it kind of kills the value of the game. AI is very repetitious and the same attacks come at you no matter which of the 5 classes you choose from.

In other words, don't waste your money because this game is broken.

Overall: 4/10
