Developed as a title for Mega Man's 20th anniversary, Mega Man ZX Advent is a fast-paced action game that follows two heroes, Grey and Ash, on two separate but intertwining adventures as they search for answers amidst a chaotic war between humans and robots. They discover the power of the mysterious "Biometal model A," which on its own has several attacks, but also has a special Megamerge ability which allows the character to transform into one of eight "Pseudoroid" bosses that each have a unique set of abilities. Once a boss is defeated, players can emulate their powers to find hidden routes, discover rare items and aid their battles against more powerful enemies.

No.6 on my top 15 Ds games of 2006-2010
Location: new york,ny
This game is perfect for: casual gamers
This game is every thing you want from mega man and more. If you are looking for a reboot of what mega man really is you got it. I don't usually play Ds mega man games well really I don't play Ds games. This game is that once in a blue moon games from the Ds that really is a pure master piece like Pokemon, Mario games, and Zelda. This game can take on with the consoles best games and even win.Thats enough about how good the game is now lets talk about it. The game gives you 14 forms to battle with witch is a lot. The levels in this game really go along with the boss and the story. Oh yeah the story to this game is actually really good I would give the game a 9 for story. Its got some twist and every thing connects at the end. The boss fights are fun two and there is usually two battle modes that is that boss's weakness. The last fight has a great level and a boss that will make put your gaming skills to there full test. The ending is probably one of the best parts to this game. It also holds the biggest plot twist of all. This game has good graphics for the Ds and the sound and sound track is pretty sweet. The game play is really amazing and when I had to stop playing I couldn't stop thinking about continuing. I would love to see this game turn into a 3d Ds game or maybe even wii game thats how much I love this game. The storyline is great, game play is amazing, and the battle modes are the best ever. Buy this game its should be number one but my friends who are making the top 15 list think Mario kart is.
This is a satisfying sequel to Mega Man ZX. The BioMetals have been stolen from the Guardians' flying base (the "how" is not addressed), and given to predetermined Chosen Ones, known as Mega Men. There are two protagonists to choose from, Grey, a young reploid boy found in an abandoned labratory, and Ashe, a young human woman whose prowess as a bounty hunter is unrivalled. Either way, a chance encounter joins the main character with the game's BioMetal, Model A, and together they set out to stop the other Mega Men from spreading chaos. During the process, our heroes learn the truth about Model A. Along the way, our heroes will meet Vent or Aile (the previous game's protagonists) depending on which character's story they chose to follow, as well as the dynamic duo, Prometheus and Pandora. They get a little more than they bargained for, however, and wind up fighting a surprising enemy. It is then that they discover that Model A isn't quite what everyone thought it was... Overall, the game is a lot of fun. It makes more sense if you're familiar with the original ZX's story, but you won't miss much if you haven't played it (actually, it may cause less confusion to skip the first one altogether!). Graphics-wise, it doesn't deviate much from its predecessors (Mega Man ZX and the entire Mega Man Zero series), though some of the explosion animations are quite good. A nice touch is that many of the areas you've cleared can be seen in the distance from Hunter Camp (the main base for this game). The entire game includes voice-over in English, which was done very well for the most part (remarkably so in Prometheus' case). Unlike Mega Man ZX, the two characters' sprites differ slightly from one another even while megamerged, and many of the different forms' charge attacks are different, as well. There are some very challenging parts, but nothing a little practice won't solve (except maybe for a certain battle with a certain Shisaroid duo). Model A's unique copy ability takes the place of collecting the various BioMetals, and it allows the character to transform into any Pseudoroid or Mega Man defeated in battle, making battles as intense or easy as the player would like. The characters control very well, and the attacks are easy to master. The touchscreen is implemented a little better this time around. One annoying issue is the placement of Trans-Servers. MegaMan ZX allowed the player to transport to any full Trans-Server from any full Trans-Server. ZX Advent forces the player to activate return Servers in order to transfer back to locations traveled to, and this requires E-Crystals. There is generally one return Server for each area though, provided you have enough E-Crystals. The player can accept as many side quests as they like at the same time, a change that may not sound like much, but saves the player a lot of time and running around. Like any typical Mega Man game, it is relatively short, taking only a scant few hours to complete once. There are, however, three modes of difficulty, and many rewards to be unlocked by performing various feats (they're good enough that they actually make it worthwhile to play a few times), possibly the most amusing of which being Mega Man Model a (alpha), a form with extremely low firepower that resembles Mega Man from the classic NES games.

Megaman...What more could you want?
Familiar gameplay combined with fast paced action. A great number of boss transformations, each with there own special abilities for you to control. It keeps the game fresh and open to a variety of battle tactics! And come on, it's hard not to love classic 2D platforming Megaman action. Buy it. It is well worth your money.

Review 4 for Mega Man ZX Advent
Best Megaman Game in a long time.
Most everyone though X was awesome, albeit having a few flaws. This game has gotten rid of those (mostly, anyways :P) Theres gunna be a new map system, no more searching for hours trying to find an area lol. And, the ability to transform into bosses is gunna be awesome. Definately getting this when it comes out, and if you even SOMEWHAT like Megaman, you should get this too.
Review 5 for Mega Man ZX Advent
this game might be good. i have had megaman zx and its was ok, the only part i didnt like was how you had to find all the areas. i hope they dont have to make you do that in this game, but even if they do, im still getting it

Megaman Rockman whatever it still owns!
Most people think that a game with low grafixs is bad, I think that unless its not fun it should not be played. However the megaman ZX game rocked hard and this on will be rock even harder! Anime in this type of game makes up for its low grafixs and the gameplay even better. I didnt put a lot in this review but trust me this one will be one for the record books!!!!
Review 7 for Mega Man ZX Advent
Minigames!!!!!!! and model a
Unlike the last Zx game this one will allow to play minigames with a friend with a single card download which I believe will be fun, since you can play a classic style of megaman with a Zx Advent twist. In that minigame you play the same megaman game for the NES only you look like Model A and there are different enviorments and Bosses. Everthing is 8-bit. If you get all 24 gold, silver, and bronze medals and start a new game you will get the secret biometal model a not A, but a. It looks the same as the character in the minigame. 0_0

Gonna Rock Hard
Yes. I've been waiting for this. It finally has a cover and it looks awesome. The last one brought the difficulty of the Zero games back, and I hope this one retains it while also improving on the open world aspect by making it more navigable and with a better map system. I love my MegaMan games, and this one will be no exception.

Review 9 for Mega Man ZX Advent
I got the Japanese version of the game and it is a lot better then that of the first ZX. Taking place 4 years after the first one, it has everything the first had, but three times has much stuff. That and, in human form you can attack the mavricks, and for the first time both characters have different stories. (With little in common). And both main heroes from #1 are back...but as bosses. This game is a must buy for those who are fans of Megaman.
Review 10 for Mega Man ZX Advent
Megaman zx advent biometals
Megaman ZX Advent is going to be like megaman zx but instead of model X you get model A or model axl (from megaman x7) and you get every model form megaman zx exept model X and model OX so you get model A, P, L, F, and ZX plus you can use the 8 bosses you beat and now human form has a gun. So you can fight as 9 more characters added on to the characters from Megaman zx. Also now there is a diffrence beetween the girl and boy, the boy has more rapid shots the girl has more power. In my opinion this a going to be a awsome game just like the megaman zx game and also just as challenging and I recomend buying it on the first day for fun play.
Review 11 for Mega Man ZX Advent
After I finished the first megaman zx I still played it alot even today. But when I heard about the 2nd one, I thought that I would die. I have already seen and heard about what this game will be like and heard that it will be pretty good. to me, its just Freakin Awsome!!! This is must buy if you want to see what happens after the first mega man zx. I was curious as well if they were going to make a second one. This game will be sweet.

Review 13 for Mega Man ZX Advent
i dont get it people are saying there is more than one biometal in the new game but i have never seen it. this game is going to be awesome. you can be the bosses with their powers and everything.
Review 14 for Mega Man ZX Advent
i read all about it i even learned japanese so i could understand the japanese sites this game goes 30-40 years into the future from the ending of megaman zx your first boimetal will be A as in axel from megaman x 8 in this game you will get five extra biometals and with the ability of biometal A you can also transform into eight different boses(or atleast you copying them you also get all of there abilities to) basicly zx advent will have the same controls except you have better use of the ds's functions.
Review 15 for Mega Man ZX Advent
This game looks pretty good. The only big difference between this game and its predecessor is that this game has one biometal. The many biometal combinations are going to be a thing of the past in this game. overall this looks like a great game.
Review 16 for Mega Man ZX Advent
Mega Man it must be good
Personally i have always been a mega man fan and if this game is anything like the last Mega Man ZX game that came out it will be good. Personally i havent tried this new version but if its anything like how capcom makes their mega man games it will have the same controll style, graphic style, and sound as the previous mega man zx but the songs and bosses will be new (obviously) a typicial 2d side scrolling platformer action game and maby with a 3d effect on the characters.
