Mega Man 4 (NES)

Game Profile

A year after the destruction of Gamma and Dr. Wily's defeat at the hands of Mega Man, the world is still at peace.

One day a letter arrives for Dr. Light from a mysterious Russian scientist named Dr. Mikhail Cossack. Dr. Cossack plans to eliminate Mega Man to prove that he is the greatest robot designer of all time. It's up to Mega Man to save the day once again.

Mega Man 4 provides action-based game play like the earlier games in the series. Mega Man now has the ability to charge up energy inside his Mega Buster, allowing him to fire larger and more damaging blasts.

A bit weak, but still a good game

With both Mega Man 2 and Mega Man 3 ranking among the best NES games ever made, many people were quite excited when Capcom announced a fourth entry in the series back in 1991. After all, if they managed to make it even better, it would be pretty much near...

The first MM game I ever personally owned, so it has always had a special place in my heart. But even without this personal attachment I'd fail to see how anybody would regard this as the weakest in the classic series.

4 is decent. everyone is wayyy too hard on it. imo, it wasn't as good as 2 or as epic/amazing as 5 (which is by far my fav mega man game of the original series) but it's still fun. if 5 comes out tho, you better get it. best nes mega man and prob my 2nd or 3rd fav mega man game (after MMX and possibly MMX2). i liked MM5 wayyy more than the recent mega man 9 (and MMX is practically perfection as far as mega man gaming is concerned)...

Second best of the original six imo. The gameboy version is awesome. Why aren't there any gameboy games on the VC?

Yeah. A lot of people are too hard on MM4. Personally, it's one of my favorites. (Although to some people, my opinion probably doesn't count because I also like MM7!) But MM2 will always be my favorite.

Most people are critical of 4-6. Everyone loves 3, including me, but it's way too easy because of the excessive amounts of E-Tanks and 1-ups. No matter what people say, 4 is going to be a hot download because fans who were introduced to the series through the VC will be curious and those who have played it in the past will want it.

someone should probably review this before it comes out.
I haven't played MM4, so I'd love to hear what someone has to say about it.

Well...just read the comments here and you should be able to see what "someone" has to say about MM4.

Why don't you just buy the Mega Man Collection? It runs fine!

Yep, 4,5,& 6 actually deviated from the norm, and well.

Sure 1 & 2 had robot screens and the robot weapons, aside from those two things the games were fairly standard run and gunners. 3 added the great slide, but didn't go far beyond it. Then the later NES games were released the level designs become more involved and more enjoyable. Gravity Man's stage is sublime, Blizzard Man's submarine was great, as was traversing the oil and water in Centaur Man's stage.

And hey the lack of dud stages was great no lame Crash Man stage, Wily Stages that didn't suck, twas great :3

I never understood why some people don't like this one. I love MM4! Sure, I get how some of the robot masters are too easy, but I thought the names and designs of them were great. And the music is fantastic. Honestly, I can't understand the hate...
