It's been out for a few days now. I'm sure a number of you have purchased it and beaten it by now. What'd you think of it so far?

I'd offer my opinion, but I don't have it yet. I live 32 miles from the nearest video game retail store, and with an income as lame as mine, you can't get out much. Stupid store was out by the time I got there. -.-

Beat it? Hardly. I'm taking my sweet time, getting Level 4 victories on all the psuedodroids. I'm still missing Model F though.

It's a cool game, I'm seeing many throwbacks to previous MMZ games, and one of the opening levels is an allusion to the highway stage in X1.

I like the cinematics, however scarce. Although I wish the noise of using Model P's kunai attack wasn't so loud. x.x

This game is perhaps the best Megaman game I have played IN YEARS. The story is deep (ONLY IF YOUR AILE) and the different models are unique and fun to play with. Just wish they would've changed the graphics somewhat...and would it have KILLED them to put in English subs?

9/10 ish.

I got it recently, and I like it. I haven't had too much time to play it though so I'm not very far at all... I love how they have anime cutscenes though. I'd give it 9/10.

Just got it this morning, been playing it in class ever since. XD It's an awesome game. The bee-craft in the highway level were a nice touch. I was half expecting to have Vile jump me. I'd give it a 9 out of 10. You were right, Teej, this is the best Megaman game I've played in years too.

I've also noticed a multitude of little references to the Zero games. For example:

Spoiler (click to toggle)
-A woman in one of the C areas says that her ancestor learned a bread recipie from an old reploid. Certainly a throwback to old Andrew's ramblings at the beginning of MMZ3.
-Prairie? A reploid? And she has a little cat doll? Coincidence? I think not. Certainly she's really the little girl that carried around the cat doll in the Zero games! (What was her name again?)
-Hareng said that "Hareng" was a codename. I smell Zero! He looks like Zero, too. Maybe with amnesia?


If I think of any more, I'll be sure to update. ^_^

Not sure about the other cinematics, but the first one had english subs.

Anyway, got the game two days ago and I've been lovin' every minute of it. Only beef with it, map system. It's incredibly annoying to go through area C 5times in a row...in 6minutes. Other than that, best MM game in years.

8.5/10

Eh. By English Subs I meant subing the Japanese voices for some English ones, since there were scarce, and Aile's voice annoyed me to no end, but had to keep the volume up to listen to the uber music.

Getting Level 4 Victories are a pain. Like Purprill. His weakspot is in his arms.

His FREAKING ARMS.

I had no trouble with Purprill. Just use ZX's charge shot when he's climbing in the direction opposite you.

Just wait until you get to Fistleo...HIS biometal's in his head.

And when you get a game over you have to rescue alllll the people from the building again! And again. And AGAIN.

MegaMan ZX?

Gameplay: 9.5/10: The models rock, the control is good and responsive, and you're given more battle possibilities (especially thanks to the Buster Edit with FX). The only thing I could have wished for was some kind of multiplayer. So many different strategies, so little ways to show them off...

Story: 8.5/10: If only it were the same for both characters...

Bosses: 10/10: Finally you have to do more than just shoot the thing till it dies - you have to NOT shoot it in the biometal space! Plus, they're the good kind - super-hard the first time, then super-easy in the last level. Also, Model W was fun to fight, as in the end it all balanced upon who would pwn the other person first - you kill it quick, you win; he slows you down with that magic-y dust attack, he'll own you.

Music: Pwns/10: It brought me back to the roots of MM - especially the Area A and Area C music. Also, the D4/D5 music is te best last level music in the Zer/ZX zeries since Z1! The boss music was also cool, but the final boss' could have been a tad quicker... ahh, who'm I kidding? It all rocked.

Areas and Maps: 9/10 The last stage could have been a bit more challenging, but other than that it was okay, except that they should have added a Metroid-esque function that puts a pointer on the target area on your map.

Overall: 9/10: It was the best MM game in a long time, and the Zero series is over-pwned by this!

Zero: You know me - never say 'die.'

I've already completed Vent's story, and got all of the Biometals. Even Omega's. (Ick... that wasn't a fun fight.)

I think Flammole was the hardest. I couldn't do the HX way and get a L4 at the same time... I ended up using FX's Buster Edit to direct shots into his rear end. Leganchor was the easiest if you have LX, though.

Flammole isn't that bad - use ZX orsomething and only shoot when his arms are down. FX's shots work, too. And if you zigzag them upward, they'll nail Leganchor easily, for a Lv4.

Leganchor? I used LX, floated up beside him, just under his body, and just kept hitting B. Easy win. If he hit me enough, I'd just use a subtank.

N-1's boss is easily the hardest boss period, along with the final boss.

There were times where I thought it'd be pretty easy, and that's when the place to hit him changed... heh. He kept surprising me, which gave me trouble. So you're not alone, HighMax.

I liked the way they made Omega in that game. They should have a boss like that in every sidescrolling Mega Man game. A sidequest with a really tough boss, who just rips you apart! It's so lovely to find such a challange! I love these games. :D

I personally liked the X model better than the ZX model. I guess simple shooting is just my style. I found the charged Saber Attack to be relatively useless.

I have everything with Vent, now I'm playing as Aile.

Yay! But Omega didn't rip me apart. He just made me head to my sub tanks - I have only two :P - and I still killed him with the charged ZX buster. But that's me.

And why can't Model W itself talk?

If you listened to Pandora and Prometheus during the second to last mission, you'd know that

Spoiler (click to toggle)
They are the voice of Model W.


Also, it could be that it only talks to those that use its power:
Spoiler (click to toggle)
Serpent, Prometheus, and Pandora, as they draw their power from Model W. I distinctly remember Prometheus saying that they, too, are Mega Men.

Good points. Maybe the two died along with Model W.

Or they just lost their voices.

I used my buster alot on him too. I had four sub tanks, but I only used two. That's so sick how he can heal. I think that's what made him a challenge. It's not just about waiting for a good oppurtunity to hit him and stand from afar, it's about beating him as fast as you can.

Getting the Sub Tank from the lava area (L area I think) was definetly not cool. Then, it wasn't until about halfway of the game I found out you can dash upwards with the H Model. Stupid me. -_-

Hope there's some more unlockable stuff after beating hard mode. I wonder...
