After six NES games, one 16-bit near-misstep (two if you count the previously Japan-only Mega Man and Bass when it hit the Game Boy Advance) and a 32-bit total meltdown the return to 8-bit style for number nine proved to be a hit, and number ten is just as good as the reasons herein will attest.
Mega Man 9, released at the end of September, wooed longtime fans with its 8-bit graphics and sound. Like the old games, your job is to destroy a cabal of evil robots, taking their weapons along the way. Great concept, but each game was good for at least one dud weapon. Below, the best of the worst.
