  1. It looks incredible, sounds great, and plays beautifully...what's not to love? If you haven't yet tried out this excellent series, this is the best game to start on.
  2. This is a polished, dead-on addition to a franchise in which a sore thumb stands out.
  3. The controls are smooth and consistent, the graphics are sharp and the fighting is satisfying once you put in the practice.
  4. Rockman Zero 4 isn't going to score huge on the originality scale or alter anyone's mind about the state of Mega Man games. Yet, it's probably the best portable action oriented Mega Man title to date. [JPN Import]
  5. The Mega Man franchise strives ahead with the same solid and addictive gameplay, plus some added RPG elements and tweaks to please the fans.
  6. Longtime fans will appreciate that it's easier to both outfit Zero with different weapons and manage his various special abilities in this game than it was in the previous one, but aside from some primarily cosmetic changes, this game plays just like every other Mega Man game does.
  7. I don't care how good the gameplay is - it's been done to death. It's like releasing the game of checkers over and over with different colored game pieces.

What bugs me is the easiness. What used to be the hardest game I own (Before I got into gaming.), is now possibly the easiest game ever, besides ZX. Expand

    For the first time I feel as though a Megaman Zero game has balanced it's difficulty. Slowly as the series has progressed, things have For the first time I feel as though a Megaman Zero game has balanced it's difficulty. Slowly as the series has progressed, things have gotten easier, and this game is the most accessible yet. The plot is bitter-sweet, but it seems to bring closure to the Zero series - something Capcom is not known to do with a popular franchise. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This game was unnecesary and bad.
    First of all, this is the easiest Mega Man Zero (which shouldn't be considering that the previous games were insanely difficult).
    The story is boring and doesn't make any sense, why is Dr. Weil alive? Where are the 3 Guardians?
    WHY DOES THIS GAME EVEN EXIST?!
    The weapons are lame... where is the Shield Boomerang? COME ON! WHAT IS THIS? A HAND?
    Its level design is... lazy, compared to the previous games, and the bosses have the most predicable patterns ever!
    The weather system sucks, all it does is go either to your favour or the boss' favour.
    The music is awesome and I honestly think is the only good thing about this game (besides Zero's new voice).
    And now... let's talk about the ending.
    ZERO DYING. AGAIN. Only that this time is for real... why Capcom? This is a joke!
    And no kidding, that f*****g ending makes me cry...
    Overall, this is one of the worst Mega Man games ever.
    And by the way, this game originally was going to be a prequel to the first game... Capcom f****d up everything and now, it's a bad game.
