Mega Man II in Depth Review

[Introduction] [Robot Masters] [Dr. Wiley] [Conclusion]

Mega Man II Title Screen

Mega Man is one of the most successful video game series in the history of video game series. Between the Mega Man, Mega Man X, Mega Man Legends, and Mega Man Soccer series there are approximately 900 games. So to claim one of those games is the best is a tall order. Well boys and girls, after extensive research I have come to the conclusion that Mega Man II is the best Megan Man game ever.

The storyline of Mega Man II is both simple, and beautiful in its own special way, like a flower, or a retarded child. In the previous game Dr. Light and Dr. Wily were building super powerful robots to do dangerous work. They had all their bases covered: they had an Eskimo robot, a Fire robot, a Lumberjack robot, and a bunch of others. However, Dr. Wily being evil, stole the robots, and used them to take over the world. So Mega Man, a butler robot, decided to save the world. He traded in his broom for a gun and was able to defeat the evil robots.

Fast forward to the year 200X-Dr. Wily is back with a bunch of robots he has made for the sole purpose of doing battle, and he wants revenge. It's up to Mega Man to save the world again. The real question is: can he do it?

Mega Man II Robot Masters

Here are the evil Robot Masters, behold their mighty power. There are probably three questions running through your head right now.

1. Why do all of the Robot Masters names end in "-man"?

I don't know why all of their names end in man. It appears that Dr. Wily is not real creative with names, so by adding man it makes the robots sound like some sort of super villain. Somebody named Heat will get laughed at; somebody named Heat Man will strike fear into the masses.

2. Do all robots have "-man" at the end of their names?

Not all the robots have "-man" at the end of their name. Mega Man has a sister named Roll, whose name does not end in "man", rather it ends in "ll". Later in the series Mega Man gets a dog named Rush whose name also does not end in man, so it appears only humanoid male robots have man at the end of their name.

3. That screen looks like that one part of the Brady Bunch.

You're right it does. It kind of makes you think. If Dr. Wily was on the Brady Bunch, he would be Alice because they both occupy the middle square. There's a metaphor in there someplace.
