HIGH A sequel to an all-time great game.

LOW Achieving an A ranking through most of “Tequila” (Super Hard) only to plunge to an E within the last ten notes.

HIGH Playing a game that was designed correctly to be a true challenge.

LOW I miss the slide feature of later Mega Man games (and a downloadable character does not count!)

WTF Finally figuring out how to use the Black Hole Bomb correctly! It took me way too long…
