Mega Man 11 is an action-platform game developed and published by Capcom. Announced as a celebration for Mega Man's 30th anniversary, it was released on October 2nd, 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Microsoft Windows.

Why It Rocks

  1. Outstanding modern 2.5D graphic style from the previous installments of the classic series instead of the retro, 8-bit style that has been overused in the series.
  2. Excellent soundtrack which really fits the Mega Man setting.
  3. It brought back voice acting, and it's done way better than Mega Man 8.
  4. It is significantly more story-driven than previous Mega Man games, going into the backstory behind why Dr. Light and Dr. Wily became enemies.
  5. The new Double Gear System allows you to either move really fast or greatly increase your attack power; at the same time this mechanic can't be overused due to a very strict timer so the player can't abuse it.
  6. Unlike Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 10, sliding and charging mechanics have returned.
  7. Though not entirely gone, instant-kill death traps and cheap jumps are significantly less common than in previous games so the game relies less on fake difficulty.
  8. Bosses offer a strong challenge but can feasibly be defeated without relying on trial-and-error. These bosses also use the Double Gear to spice up their fights.
  9. For newcomers, lower difficulties place checkpoints more frequently and start the player with more lives which makes the game a lot less punishing for inexperienced players. In regular difficulties for more experienced players however, the game is as challenging as the other Mega Man games.
  10. The ending takes a rather fun jab at the fact that Dr. Wily always begs to be spared every time he is defeated.
  11. The weapons Mega Man uses are great and can be combined with the Double Gear to make them even more powerful.
    • Whenever you defeat a Robot Master and get a new weapon, you're sent to a practice room to try out the new weapon.
  12. Like Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 10, you can choose your difficulty level.
  13. If you're playing in Newcomer or Casual Mode, your weapons get refilled after death, much like Mega Man 8.

Bad Qualities

  1. Both Proto Man and Bass don't appear in this game for some reason, not even as DLC.
  2. There are still some cheap deaths occasionally, i.e. there are some places that trick you into falling to your doom.
  3. Underwhelming Wily Fortress. It only has two proper stages, a boss rush without a Wily boss, and a very short fourth stage that leads to the Wily Machine 11.
  4. The game is exclusively digital in Europe, while other regions get a physical version of the game, despite not being a port of an older gams from a previous generation of consoles.
