Worst Mega Man Game

I can remember the days of begging my parents for a game that was released out of the usual gift giving holidays (Christmas and my birthday). Often trading household chores for the chance to jump into another gaming adventure.mega man soccer

But this childhood memory is not quite are happy as many of my others. Growing up one of my favorite series were those that starred the “Blue Bomber” Mega Man. I played them all from Mega Man 1 and then graduating to Mega Man X on the SNES. One game in the series did not quite meet the level of excitement that I got from the other games. This game was Mega Man Soccer. I begged my parents to buy me this game simply because it had Mega Man on the cover. I had no knowledge of the gameplay and this was before the many resources we have today for game reviews.

After several attempts of negotiation I managed to come home with the game. First off let me say that I was neither a sports fan or a sports game fan, so why the giant letters S-O-C-C-E-R did not spell disappointment to me, I’m not sure. The game play makes you think of Super Dodge Ball on the NES but without fun.

Why Are There So Many Mega Mans?

It’s often sad to see developers try something new with a well known franchise and fail so miserably. This was when game stores would still accept open box returns of video games, so I promptly got my money my parent’s money back.  It would be best to forget this game was ever conceived.
