This pretty much sums up how I feel about the ZX armor

Alright so.. another Megaman game. To be honest I really don't have any big complaints with this one, it was actually a lot of fun. The only thing I didn't really understand is how the character is supposed to be a cross between X and Zero. They're pretty much just Zero. You get to play with the "X armor" for like two seconds and then you never get it again unless you complete some obscure objective that only Japanese kids care to do. The X armor is actually more useful because you can carry two-charge shots instead've just one. In this game charge shots do a ton more damage than trying to hack and slash your opponent up close like a hardcore ninja.

I'm going to say that this is possibly the most fun incarnation of Megaman to control. A big perk is that instead've just getting a shitty little power from defeating a boss you get a whole new form. Different movements, projectiles, and charge-shots. It's awesome.

The music is good. Yeah, it's good. It's also pretty good. There's not much else I can say really. While most of the tunes were kinda forgettable there are some that stick with me pretty well. It wasn't anything super amazing (like say.. Rockman and Forte) but it was above average.

Probably my favorite track

I have to say that the style is a bit of a step backwards for the franchise. It's like they took the Zero series and added in Fox Kids anime elements to it. I'm not a big fan of the art style and the whole concept. The story is that the souls of X and Zero are inside of 'biometal' which can transform a lucky after-school-anime-protagonist into "The One", complete with all the abilities of X and Zero. I've really got to give them props for continuation though, the 'background plot' really meshes itself well into the series.
