Excerpt: If you’re like me, then you probably fell off the Mega Man train a long, long time ago. Time and time again we found ourselves setting out as the Blue Bomber, tasked with defeating eight robot masters before taking on the evil Dr. Wily/Doppler/whoever only to have him slip away once more.
Excerpt: The Mega Man series have had its ups and downs through the pass two decades or so since its first appearance on the NES. Capcom has blessed us recently with Mega Man ZX and now they have given the series another game, Mega Man ZX Advent.
Excerpt: In his 20 years of existence, Mega Man has been through multiple incarnations, most of which are interconnected through an elaborate storyline that goes far deeper than one would have expected from the simple "shoot the evil robots" premise of the original game in the series.
Excerpt: A-Trans not only allows you to copy an opponent’s weapon, but actually transforms you into the enemy. Special secondary moves and abilities are available for use immediately, instead of confining you to the use of a single elemental weapon such as in previous games.
Conclusion: If you're a DS owner looking for a solid action release, ZX Advent is definitely one to put on your holiday wish list. The game features a ton of solid gameplay with enough improvements over the original to take note of.
