In 2018 after 30 years of unforgettable adventures the fight for everlasting peace continues! The tight action-platformer gameplay that made the series a success is alive and well. To save the day, the Blue Bomber must battle Robot Masters and take their powerful weapons for himself, which now changes the hero's appearance with new levels of detail. A new, vivid visual style refreshes the series' iconic colorfulness, combining hand-drawn environments with detailed, 3D character models. Expand

    Mega Man 11 is exactly what I wanted from a new Mega Man game in 2018. The robot masters are fun and interesting. The stage designs are absolutely stellar, and the accessibility is incredible. Anyone can play this game and have a good time. There are so many ways to enjoy Mega Man in 2018. Capcom is on a roll lately and this gets me even more excited for the return of DMC and Resident Evil. Keep it going Capcom, now get to work on Mega Man 12.

    Whilst not quite the best in the series, Mega Man 11 hits the spot. The game does a good job at modernizing the Blue Bomber’s latest adventure, and although the few subtle changes may not be for everyone, I have to commend the game for being widely accessible at the same time as respecting its hardcore roots. Despite its issues, this is a must have for Mega Man newcomers and returning fans alike.

    Capcom has made a game absolutely devoted to its IP roots, and fresh at the same time.

    As a long-time fan of Mega Man ever since the 8-bit days, I'm happy that Mega Man 11 retains a lot of what makes the series special. On the other hand, most of the classic magic is missing which is something that I hope Capcom brings back in Mega Man 12.

    A good first step for Mega Man's relaunch, but lacking that artistic spark that could have made it a better package overall. Gameplay wise it's a very good game thanks to the new mechanics too, so it's definitely advised for the series fans.

    Mega Man 11 is another fun and explosive experience for Capcom's Blue Bomber, the new Double Gear system doesn't add much to the game yet it's still an enjoyable one.

    Even with these issues, it just feels good to see Mega Man back in action, and Mega Man 11 will hopefully be the start of many new robotic adventures to come.

    I found the level design in the game to be absolutely fantastic because there’s a ton of variety present throughout each level which in turnI found the level design in the game to be absolutely fantastic because there’s a ton of variety present throughout each level which in turn keeps things fun at all times. Technically the game holds up really well throughout your time with the game and I was really impressed with the controls that have been implemented. The presentation side of the game has been done to perfection and Mega Man has never looked and sounded better than it does here. There are lots of different weapons and upgrades for you to get to grips with and the best thing is that each weapon and upgrade plays its part and feels important. Each enemy in the game represents a different challenge and the boss battles feel exhilarating from start to finish. In terms of content there isn’t a huge amount for you to get to grips which means I feel the game is slightly overpriced. You have to stop and have a breather every now and then because the high difficulty can be a little frustrating. Mega Man has a place in a lot of people’s heart’s and I’m one of those people so to say I was eager to get to grips with Mega Man 11 would be a massive understatement. Thankfully it didn’t disappoint either and in a way I think it will garner more fans because whilst it’s still retro to the core it does also have a modern feel to it as well. This modern feeling is felt through both the controls and presentation side of the game and when they combine together you have an incredible amount of fun. In fact you have that much fun that it makes it easier to carry on even if you come across some frustrating moments, which you will no doubt experience along the way. Thankfully these frustrating moments aren’t too profound though because defeating the various enemies never gets boring thanks to the many upgrades and weapons you can use against them. At the end of the day then Mega Man 11 has reached my lofty expectations and then some, and whilst I feel it may be a little overpriced I still recommend that you get the game because it does the Mega Man franchise justice and fans of the franchise will thoroughly enjoy what the game has to offer.
