Mega Man 10 Review

Genre: Platform, Action
Developer(s): Inti Creates, Capcom
Publisher(s): Capcom
Release Date: available now
Rating: E
System: XBOX 360, Playstation 3, WiiWare

Mega Man 10 is the tenth game in the series (That's 3 behind Final Fantasy not counting the Mega Man X series). The plot is there is a Robot Flu called "Robotenza" infecting the robots in the city. A month later it worsens to the point that Dr. Wily ask for help. The only reason Mega Man agrees to help be because Roll (his sister) is sick and the robots stole the cure Dr. Wily made. Then he runs in to Proto Man who agrees to help him.

The Game has 3 Modes Story, Time Attack, and Challenge. In Story Mode you play the main story. When you first start out you can pick either Mega Man or Proto Man. *Note at the time of writing this ONLY Mega Man counts towards the achievements, Time Attack, and Challenge Mode. There are 8 Robot masters, Chill Man, Nitro Man, Commando Man, Blade Man, Strike man, Sheep Man, Pump Man, Solar Man. Once you defeat one of the masters, you copy their power and can use it on the next boss. As you progress through the story you can buy power up with various screws you pick up during the game. You can change weapons and access the shop mid-mission. Mega Man plays as he always does but Proto Man plays a little different. Both can copy master weapons, use Rush (the robot dog) and buy items. Proto can only fire two shots on screen, takes twice as much damage, and is knocked back twice as far. He can charge his shots and slide to dodge some enemy attacks.

Time Attack is were you go through the stages as fast as you can. The top time is ranked. You can even record your time to see what you did and what you can do to make yourself better. There will be more downloadable stages later. In Challenge Mode, there are 88 Challenges. These challenges can range from jumping across pits to running, to beating a stage without getting hit. This is a great way to get the feel of the game and to and replay to this game.

There is an easy mode to help people get into the game and you can play as Proto Man from the start. The game is short, you could beat it in less than an hour (there is an achievement for that) and the fact that only Mega Man counts towards the achievements, time and challenge is what kind of hurts. Hopefully with updates they will fix that.
