Conclusion: The real question is: is this game so good you can ignore the map system to get to the fun parts? For Mega Man fans, I think it’s a yes. It’s got a lot of the same qualities that have made the series great, and enough new tricks to make the map system worthwhile. But for someone new, or relatively new to the series, it’s a resounding no, because it’s really not worth the frustration.
Pros: Solid Mega Man experience, Looks pretty
Cons: Confusing map makes for frustrating play, Not really a DS game, with barely any touch screen functions, BG music loops incessantly
