"The next installment with more to offer than ever before"
This is the fourth installment of the Zero series. It is alot like its prequel but different in its own ways.
You have to love the Zero series's storyline. It is excellent. It has been two months since Megaman Zero 3. Ciel and Zero are on the travel now. They one day see a few trucks getting attacked by Neo Arcadian soldiers. Zero goes to help. After the battle, Zero finds out who the people are. They call themselves the Caravan and they escaped Neo Arcadia. Weil has gotten power hungry and treated all of the humans in Neo Arcadia cruelly. This is the reason the Caravan left. After everything, things lead to the final battle. Along with it comes an ending, a sad, sad ending...
Capcom has dropped the Shield Boomerang and the rods and created the "Z-Knuckle." You can steal weapons from enemies with it. You can also catch onto wires with it. Capcom also created the "Chip Creation System," which you must combine parts collected to form an enchantment chip that will enchance Zero's abilities. The cyber-elf system has also changed. There is now only one cyber-elf which can level up and copy other elves' abilities. Besides those, Capcom hasn't really changed anything since Zero 3. The controls are excellent and once you get used to them, you can easily beat the bosses
The graphics are pretty much like Zero 3's. They are excellent and with few flaws. The backgrounds look excellent. Like on the previous games, you wouldn't expect graphics like these on a Gameboy Advance.
The tunes aren't overall excellent, but they aren't horrible. The natural sounds are excellent yet dull after you hear them for the trillionth time. No music sticks to my head, but they are okay.
Replay Ability 8/10
This game has less replay ability than the previous games. The parts aren't too hard to collect and the mini-games are easy to obtain. Though it won't take forever to complete the game, it will take some time.
The difficulty is very similar to that of Zero 3's. It's not as hard as the first two installments. This is a game for experienced players.
This is another installment for the Zero series. Capcom never stops amazing me. This is a great game for any who feel like getting it.
