DL'd and tried Plug Man's stage.

Holy shit right off the bat they throw in the same cheap crap I hated from past MM's.

Series of disappearing block jumps followed by a hard hat sitting at the edge for a garenteed hit / possible knock back into the spikes.

Seriously Capcom stop that shit.

It's not, and you should really read the description of the item before you are let down.

Achievements whores should note that the Wii version includes all the challenges of the 360, complete with a menu to see them.

Yay. I got to Splash Woman without taking any damage, died against her twice, and then got the "ECO FIGHTER" challenge completed when I beat her. I guess that's winning with the buster? Either way, awesome so far.

I would love to buy this, but playing Mega Man on Wii reminded me I don't have the patience (and possibly skill) that I used to have. No easy mode, no buy. :(

Man, this is game is no joke. It may have the old, kiddy veneer but this is game is tough. Good luck to those going for the achievement in the 360 version.

Quick Impressions.

-Menu Music is all from MM2, including Boss Selection jingle and continue screen.

-The game feels very polished. This wasn't some 8bit hack job. The levels are challenging and long, and there's a good amount content when you include the 40 or so challenges. This game is beefy.

-The music is awesome so far.

-Minibosses, no not the bad. But this game includes Minibosses as well, similar to the later MM titles.

-Buy this game.

It said costume. I don't expect different abilities, but just a different look, right?

And it doesn't seem like a lot, I already have 50 on just galaxy man's stage.

And this game seems to tell when you are farming for screws on respawning enemies.

Concrete Man is really weak :D, those elephant robots were harder than Concrete Man himself (beat him with the basic Buster, first boss defeated).

Im really tempted to turn on my Wii to play this, but I really want to get it for 360 so I can brag to all my friends when I get the invincible achievement. It's so sad...

Galaxy Man and his stage were incredibly easy, but I am having problems memorizing the block pattern for Plug Man's stage. They don't even seem as hard as block patterns from older games.

Game is harsh but fair. The difficulty can be alleviated quite a bit if you wish by buying cheap shop items.

Oh, and I was nosing in the user manual and found this:

Endless attack is 10/06 for 300 points
Hero mode, 10/20 for 100 points
Superhero mode, 10/20 for 100 points
Proto Man mode 10/06 for 200 points
Special stage 10/20 for 100 points

So, there's your DLC upfront with dates and prices.

Defeated Plug Man and Jewel Man, loving it so far. Only complaint is in the mini boss for Jewel Man's stage, sometimes you get cornered by the falling rocks and have no choice but to take damage.
