There's the IGN preview... here is a summary for those who are too lazy to read it:

- A pretty tough difficulty

- Can play as both X and Zero "forms"

- The game is taking a page from Castlevania / Metroid... this has got me really excited:

Since the world is essentially divided between human and machine, players will not only have to use the Mega Men models, but also navigate neutral towns in human form. There's far more general exploration in the game (almost like Metroid: Fusion for GBA or Castlevania II: Simon's Quest for NES)


- Homages to the old series

The game is going to be awesome. Capcom is on a roll with awesome games lately.

That one review at gamebrink really floored me... for a Mega Man game to get a score that high despite the fact that the formula's been in use for 20 years... wow.

Anyway, it's a day 3 or 4 purchase for me (waiting for that Fry's ad.)

To be fair, this sounds like a retooling of the classic formula, and not exactly the formula copied over again.

I'm excited for this too. Not sure if I'll have the extra cash to spend by the time it comes out though.

Got it off of Amazon where it's slightly cheaper, ships free, and is tax free.

Too bad Amazon wont give you a referral fee... I wasn't aware of the 26.99 price point. Waiting the 5-9 business days is just fine, especially since I just sent my Lite in for repair anyway...

Yep, and price is pretty reasonable, too. $29.99 MSRP = :D

This game does look pretty neat, but with Okami just around the conrer I'll save my money. And as far as DS games go I think I can wait for Castlevania and Yoshi's Island 2. But I may still pick this up if I find a temporary lull between games, or maybe trade Super Princess Peach for it.

I'm really contemplating this one. I'll most likely get it at the end of the week, when I get paid. I splurged this week, and bought a copy of Mario Tennis for the GC. Normally that wouldn't be a big deal, but I have a lot of games reserved XD

For a Mega Man game, that's really damn good. Especially since it's being compared to stuff like Castlevania.

I'm looking forward to it as well. After dropping just under $230 for my DS Lite, Starfox, Lunar, and Mario Kart I'm kind of broke having ot pay tuition, insurance, rent. I'll find a way to get it though even if it means beating up a kid for his lunch money.

I really can't believe how shitty IGN's writing has become. Their writers have the tact and grace of 13-year-old kids, and every article has at least one really shameful typo.


For all you newbies out there, however, the easy mode will be right up your ally, allowing virtually any level of player to get as much as possible out of the game without the need for a bubble-wrapped DS Lite. We've played version after version of Mega Man Zero, and ZX is truly the first game that we feel has a level for everyone, as the hard mode is amazingly difficult, while selecting "easy" is just that.


They misspelled "alley," AND failed to let me know if the game has a "normal" difficulty mode.

Anyway, I'm picking this one up on the day of release.

Now that I actually read it, IGN's review is retarded. They say that the game looks like a GBA 1.5 game.... but then say that it looks beautiful. They also say that the lack of English voice actors is a bad thing... I really wish IGN would shut the hell up. The last thing we need is more bad voice acting.

After the high reviews, I am getting this as a birthday present to myself from money people have given as gifts.

Can't wait.

I'd say Fuck yes, and that's coming from a guy who doesn't have a DS and is still planning to pick it up.

I'm getting it for sure. It'll be a great new addition in the Mega Man series.

Dont forget about bestbuy's buy 2 get 1 free, so you might as well get this and two other games.

That's a good plan, except Best Buy doesn't seem to carry this game. :(

There's a lot of times when BB won't list a game on their site for a while but have it in store. They should have it.
