Let me know what you think.

I think they tried too hard to graft Castevania/Metroid gameplay onto a Mega Man title. The screen's too dang small!
IE done right this time. Sucks that the Game Boy Advanced still has a more generous selection of Mortal Kombat games than the Nintendo DS :/
Yes, I've collected several versions of Mortal Kombat including the worst of the worst, excluding MK3 Game Gear.
What's good about the ZX series? I feel like ZX fell way far from the tree when it comes to Mega Man games.
[QUOTE=Verm]From your review I can't tell whether Ultimate Mortal Kombat for DS is based off Mortal Kombat 3 or is a port of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3?[/QUOTE]
Ultimate Mortal Kombat is a port of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. The screenshot shows the Desert stage, which was only in UMK3.
As far Mega Man ZX, I didn't dislike it that much, but I can't argue against the F if only for the terrible map design and navigation. Also, the F makes sense given something that wasn't pointed out in the review; the game is pretty buggy, as I ran into missions that I couldn't beat. In particular, the "look for the three kids" mission early on didn't properly load all three kids on the map and required me to turn the game off in order for it to work.
But no one's going to mention his "D" rating of Aliens: Infestation??? That game was fantastic! One of my favorite action games on the DS and a great exploration-based platformer. Man, I'm just wondering if the Critic just isn't into Metroidvania games. Since it's one of my favorite sub-genres, I feel both of these titles are unfairly maligned by the Critic. Love the site, but I have a heartily disagree with your reviews this time. But, hey, disagreement is one of the things that makes this community great.
For other metroidvania nerds, Game Trailers put out a "Top 10 best Metroidvania games" video a few months ago and if memory serves, Mega Man ZX was #8 or #9 and Aliens: Infestation was #4. Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgCqqRcgyaU
