Video Game Reviews
Today, I’ve gone through another game in preparation for part 2 of my NES Retrospective. Without further adieu, Mega Man 2!
Mega Man 2 is another game that any self-respecting NES enthusiast would call a classic.

“A Warrior among pawns”
Ahh, beat ‘em ups… The simple pleasures of utterly demolishing large numbers of helpless opponents and displaying your superiority. There’s always been a certain satisfaction in defeating tons of enemies in this now mostly dead genre, and the various Warriors games by Koei’s Omega Force team are no different.
