The Verdict

It is a general consensus that this game is the best in the original series. It has greatly improved upon the original in terms of graphics, music and play-ability. Though it may not be as difficult as Mega Man 1, Mega Man 2 is a worthy successor to the original.

The game is very engaging and fun to play. Adding a password feature is important to be able to save your progress and avoid the frustration of repeating things over and over once Mega Man runs out of lives. The difficulty options also eases you through the game if you are a newbie.
