Review: Rockman and Forte (aka Mega Man and Bass)

You may think that the last game in the “classic” Mega Man series was the SNES game Mega Man 7, whose sequel (cleverly titled Mega Man 8) was released for the Playstation. But did you know that in 1998, Capcom released another game in the series, for the SNES no less? Rockman and Forte never was released in the US (and if it had, probably would have been renamed Mega Man and Bass), since by that time the SNES platform had long been dead and buried.

You can easily find people on the Internet who will bemoan the Japan-only release of the game, claiming it to be the best game in the series. Are they right, or is this opinion, like most found on the Internet, completely bogus?
