The title takes fullMega Man ZX Advent follows two heroes, Grey and Ashe, on two separate but intertwining adventures as they search for answers amidst a chaotic war between humans and robots. They fight against a menacing, evil force in a battle unprecedented in the Mega Man series. The title takes full advantage of the Nintendo DS features to enhance the action-packed gameplay and story line of the popular series. A dynamic "Biometal" system is central to gameplay, allowing players the ability to change into several forms, including eight bosses, each with a variety of unique abilities and powers. With a touch of the Nintendo DS screen, players can easily switch back and forth between the Biometal and Map navigation screens. Bosses can be fought in several different ways, testing players' skills and rewarding them with nearly 24 different items depending on how they take on a boss. Co-op and head-to-head two player wireless play (two cartridges required). Two-player downloadable mini-game (one cartridge required). [Capcom] Expand

  1. Excellent gameplay, challenge and visuals. Voice work and story are the only low marks.
  2. While it’s certainly not for everyone, Mega Man ZX Advent offers some of the best 2D shooter action in years.

    Overall, Mega Man ZX Advent reinvents the wheel in a way, but it still spins just as well as it ever has.

    A fluid run-jump-fire actioner with something new at every turn. [JPN Import; Oct 2007, p.72]
  5. Mega Man and retro aficionados should apply for ZX Advent.
  6. Mega Man ZX Advent walks a thin line between challenging and infuriatingly difficult, while bringing along a number of new tricks and improvements for the journey.
  7. There's no denying, however, that the platforming feels a little tired and the constant blibbering of the characters is rather trite.

    Surely it is better than the first. The fact that voice acting leaves much more immersive game.

    Surely it is better than the first. The fact that voice acting leaves much more immersive game.
    Using the model A and become the stage leaders was a brilliant idea and one of the coolest things already implemented throughout the Megaman franchise.
    Megaman ZX is an epic continuation of Megaman zero, with a very good story.
    Character designer is very well done and the characters are very charismatic.
    One of the best games of the Nintendo DS, no doubt

    But... this game, compared to ZX, is HARD, so if you plan on playing it, I suggest you prepare yourself.
    Overall, a great sequel!
    And I hope one day... ZX3 comes out
