Behind Elite Beat Agents, Mega Man ZX was tied with Castlevania as my 2nd most wanted DS game for this year. Some reviews are up now, and I'm really looking forward to it.

1UP.com's Jeremy Parish gave it a 7.5 (, which is pretty good especially coming from him. (A 7/10 should be a good score regardless) He's probably the most hardcore retro/importer over there, so he's played all of the Mega Man games and everything. He marks it down because it's still very similar to previous Mega Man games, despite the game being pretty outstanding in itself. He makes a good analogy in this quote: "It's a bit like watching your favorite band rehearse a new song over and over again -- by the time they finally get it right, you've heard it a few too many times to really appreciate the results."

Conversely, Gamespy gives it 4.5/5 stars (http://uk.ds.gamespy.com/nintendo-ds/mega-man-zx/732030p1.html)and IGN gives it 8.2. (http://uk.ds.ign.com/articles/731/731859p1.html) Hopefully I can find this game before next Monday in my little country.

I want to get this game as well. At this point I have to choose between this and StarFox Command, but I think I'm leaning towards this game
