    A no-holds-barred shoot-a-thon that'll give its audience exactly what it wants - even more punishing robot chaos. [Dec 2004, p.164]
  2. The short levels, enormously goofy bosses, and the typical scenarios are just what the Mega Man fan ordered. The game is super-sized with new weapons and character actions.

    8 / 7 / 7 / 6 - 28 [Vol 802; 30 Apr 2004]
  4. If you're unfamiliar with the series then the bombardment of characters and names that will greet you could be a little intimidating, but if you just push the veil of the complex storyline aside, it's simply a good, solid platform game like its predecessor and a fine example of the genre. [Nov 2004, p.121]
  5. The problem with the game isn't the level design or the gameplay both are brilliant. It is just that the game is too much of the same. [JPN Import]
  6. I feel that this game is definitely well above average, but it's lack of freshness and high frustration level that keep it from getting a higher score.

    Mega Man Zero 3 is not really a new game, it's the result of a refinement process based on a popular gameplay style. If you can't seem to get enough of Mega Man Zero 3 will satiate your hunger.
  8. Game Informer

    While Zero is still a sweet character, this game is just too much of the same, and virtually inaccessible to anyone who doesn't want to memorize every inch of it. [Oct 2004, p.147]
  9. GMR Magazine
    60
    And again, boss encounters are both overwhelming and plodding. [Nov 2004, p.127]

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. There is so much to do and unlock here. The action is nonstop, and the graphics are incredible for a Game Boy Advance title, and the additions of mod cards that allow the game to be altered (such as the Z-Saber doing more damage and cats appearing at the Resistance Base) is original.
