I've grown up with the Mega man series. It's very close to my heart. I had no idea Megaman 10 was going to be so great. Megaman 9 was awesome. great themes, awesome weapons, a nice difficulty level, and other stuff. but I think Megaman 10 is even better. Tunes that you'll be humming for a while, better level design than that of megaman 9, and awesome DLC. Megaman 9 had protoman as DLC, but megaman 10 already comes with him. Instead you can download Bass. yes, BASS. his abilities are unique and you'll have fun blasting mets with him for a long time. the special stages are Awesome, and Endless mode rocks. This game is great.
