    Installed and loaded fine on my 4.2U.

    And now, allow me to freak out a little bit. HOT DAMN I'm happy to see this. The original Blaster Master is honestly one of my top 10 games ever. I played the hell out of that game, and still do occasionally. And this, oh man, this. The music alone is making me ecstatic. I'll get back to talking about, I have to get back to my Wii for now. Pardon me.

    Guess it must be something just for the lovers of retro.

    Got enough other things to do right now, but I am looking forward to checking this out once I get the time.

    Sure enough, this is good stuff. It retains the feel of the original, while still being a nice upgrade. Funny thing is, this almost has a Metroidvania feel to it, what with the upgrades and such. The Sophia's controls are a little stickier than the original, but it's not too bad. Jason- I mean, Alex, having multiple upgradable weapons is nice, too.

    I can see how someone who hasn't played the original wouldn't get into it much. But for those that have, this is a must play.

    Its pretty good, fans of the original will enjoy this. It could look better though, for me either put effort into how it looks or go oldschool like capcom did with Mega Man 8/9.

    The game looks good, though the controls seem to be hit and miss. Classic Controller support yes? I bet not dual stick contols though, would work rather well, tank and overhead.
    The visual and audio upgrade is nice, though I don't like how they changed the original story.
    The normal story would have worked just fine, even if it wasn't all that serious.
    Cause you know, games are serious business, yup yup.

    Hopefully there's some added levels and what not.

    The most annoying for me is that in the menu the 1 button is confirm and 2 is deny.
    I'm used to the other way around ...

    But the game itself is good [​IMG]

    Could not have said it better... Loved the nes game. Played it again last set of midnight shifts on NES/DS emulator. Love the music... The true spiritual heir to the first game. The Genesis and the PSX games were bad...
