MEGA MAN 10 is the 10th entry in the Mega Man series and for the first time there is an Easy level to accommodate new or younger players. In Easy mode the pit traps are not as plentiful, there may be moving platforms above the spikes and flames that players can hop on, there are fewer enemies in each stage, and the bosses at the end of the level pull a few punches. As players conquer levels, they gain new weapons and unlock "challenges," essentially a practice mode for the end-boss so they can get in a few practice rounds and try out new skills/weapons earned in a previous level before attempting him. This also provides an alternative mode of play as players can go back and take on a boss they have already defeated, which helps players overcome the frustration factor of particularly tough bosses.

Easy, Normal, and Hard game modes, as well as two playable characters with different strengths and weaknesses, ensure good re-playability. What's more, solid game design and precise controls make each play-through fun. Players will discover interesting little quirks, different looking maps, different paths that could be incredibly tough, and bosses that sometimes take a little ingenuity to take down.
