This game is a slight departure from Mega Man games in the past. Rather than
choosing a boss, then going through their level, you pick and choose missions
that Ciel assigns to you. Talk to her in the Data room to choose a mission (or
save your game, etc). Often, you'll revisit past stages, but with different
Underground Lab (1st mission) - Rescue Ciel! A fairly straightforward stage,
where you blast every enemy in sight. At the end, you'll face a Golem. Halfway
through the battle, you'll get your Z-Saber, which will destroy the Golem in
Disposal Center (2nd mission) - Fight your way through crappy weather, and meet
up with Aztec Falcon.
Occupy Factory - If the Resistance can take control of this factory, they'll be
set on resources for a while. The Double Dragon is waiting for you at the end.
Protect Factory - The Resistance captured the factory with your help, but Neo
Arcadia wants it back! As soon as you enter the level, you'll face Phantom.
After defeating him, you'll bolt through the level, defusing 8 timebombs.
Stop Train - A powerful Cyber Elf was kidnapped aboard a military train, and
it's your job to get it back. This mission starts in a warehouse, and ends
aboard the speeding train itself. The Pantheon Core awaits at the end.
Find Shuttle - A team of Reploids crashed into the desert, and it's your job to
find them. This level reminds me of Overdrive Ostrich's level from MMX2.
Anyways, work your way to the left, and eventually you'll face Anubis
Necromanceress the Third.
Recover Data - You'll return to the First Mission area in order to retrieve
data that the Resistance had no time to recover. Maha Ganeshariff is the boss
here, but once he's gone, he'll activate the self-destruct sequence, so RUN!
Rescue Colbor - Some Resistance members are stuck in a level very similar to
Storm Eagle's stage in MMX. Harpuia's hanging out at the end.
Defend Resistance Base - You'll chase a Mechaniloid through the Disposal
Center. Make sure you destroy it before it gets to the base! (This mission
happens immediately after the "Find Shuttle" mission.)
Duel in the Desert - You'll fight your way through a battalion of the Neo
Arcadia military, and meet up with Fefnir at the end.
Find the Hidden Base - Back to the desert again! This time, after you destroy
one of the sand traps, you'll find a hole leading deep underground. You've got
7 Resistance soldiers to rescue, and a showdown with Blizzack Stagroff as well.
Stop the Hacking - Remember that hidden base in the desert? Get back there.
You'll travel underwater, destroy a Neo Arcadia computer system, then duel with
Base Invasion - When you've finished all the regular missions, the Resistance
Base will be overrun with Neo Arcadia Soldiers. Head to the Energy room and
Neo Arcadia Shrine - The first line of defense. Work your way through this
ancient-looking temple, and fight off
Neo Arcadia Tower - This level's a real pain in the ass. There's spikes
EVERYWHERE. Be patient, and stay on the conveyor platforms, and you should be
okay. The Rainbow Devil awaits at the top.
Neo Arcadia Core - Almost there! The level itself is easy, full of X-Drones
that you can waste for powerups. Halfway through, you'll go through 4 doors
that lead to Anubis, Maha, Hanumachine, and Blizzack. Later, you'll go through
4 doors again, facing off against X's four Generals. Finally, you meet up with
