Mega Man 2 Review

Not only is this the best Mega Man game ever, this quite possibly is one of the best 2-D platformers of all-time.

If you can't get the original NES version, pick it up on one of the Mega Man Anniversary Collections available on PS2, xBox, and GameCube or on Wii Virtual Console. But for the love of god, do NOT get the iPhone version. Seriously. Don't do it.
