Capcom once stated that the development of this game would include "changing difficulty" (or something of the sort). Meaning that if you played like garbage that game adjusted to you playing like garbage and made the enemies easier. On the flip side if you played like a monster then obviously the game became more difficult.
To bad it was good in theory, but failed in execution. Gamers all over were complaining worldwide of it. So that forced Capcom to go back and release a "Special Edition" of it with a fixed difficultly. It was a success. Again!?
Not to say that the game was unbeatable in the first place. Just took a little more patience.
Suit #1:"10 kids around the world have beaten Mega Man 2. Parents and kids are complaining that you guys are making the game to difficult. Please take this into consideration for the next game! Tone down the difficultly level."
Developer:"Well tough luck! Those kids must try harder. I do not want any kids to complete this game! I must be harder!"
One of the many games in Wolverine's long history of video games that actually suck playing as Wolverine. Therefore makes the game even harder to play considering that the game is difficult to begin with.
They give you "rocks" to defend against the immortal Jason Voorhes. Rocks are you serious!? Added bonus is that you play as one of the camp consulars who are just fit the prerequisite for a nice death by being rammed against a tree in a sleeping.(!)
Ultra really had a lot of children with their Ninja Turtle themed rooms asking their Mom for a Game Genie. That kinda of made the game sorta easy. This game single handedly boosted up the sales of the Game Genie by 400%.
This game can and will make you cry.
Possibly even consider suicide as an option.
Then to boot the game isn't all that good! Even for nostalgic reasons.
Mr. Lays's rating:
These games are the reason that bullies come to school and want to beat up on the first person they see. And it makes perfect sense. Old School game designers came up with the concept of making the game so difficult to help out Nintendo's mascot Mario. Really think about it if Mario was so accessible then the "bad guys" had to make their games next to impossible. I know I sound like a conspiracy theorist.
