A game that attempts to up the ante over the original Mega Man 4. Stages now have unfitting little sections from the Gameboy games, weapons have their own upgrades and the controls & physics are now worse.
Sometimes you fight Ran Cossack. For whatever reason. Weapon upgrades require huge time waste as you’d need to revisit the stages to get them. Sometimes these upgrades mean that you’ll get the weapon equal to the one you already had in the original game. Mega Man 4+ for example starts you out with an non-chargeable Pharaoh Shot. These problems are however only the tip of the iceberg. There is not much new, it’s more like a testing ground for the developer so they can see what they can pull off. More like Mega Man 4-.
