Geo Stelar and crew return to battle a whole host of UMA’s (unidentified animated beings) and a new rival character appears named "Rogue." Amidst this new conflict, a mysterious organization emerges with plans to revive the ancient civilization of "Mu" by utilizing the force of an ancient heritage "OOPArt." It's up to Geo and his virus-busting buddy, Omega-Xis, to thwart this latest threat. Mega Man Star Force 2 blends a unique formula of RPG exploration elements with fast-paced action, as players travel and battle between coexisting worlds, the physical world and the virtual Wave World, to unravel the mystery around this new troublemaker. Players encounter enemies in the virtual Wave World and battle them on three-by-five battle grids with their Battle Card deck. Mega Man Star Force 2 also adds an upgraded Transer system.

  1. Anyone who loves it will continue to love it, and for anyone who's sick of the formula, this isn't the game to change your mind.

    If you've never played a MegaMan Star Force game, or perhaps even if you happened to like the Battle Network games but shied away from it in the middle of its long, successful run, MegaMan Star Force 2 and its prequel are worth a shot. If you played and enjoyed the first MegaMan Star Force, you'll find more of the same fun here.
  3. The gameplay changes hardly justify a sequel so soon after the first Star Force, but series fans should have fun regardless. [July 2008, p.87]
  4. The story is awful, and the gameplay isn't solid enough to carry the weight of an entire RPG.
  5. 50
    There are plenty of other games on Nintendo’s little handheld that warrant your money over yet another Capcom rehash.

    It would be nice to see Capcom do something a little more radical with this series, but we've probably got another three or four indistinguishable sequels to get through before there's even a chance of that happening. It's still a fine enough game, but the played-out presentation and quest full of repetitive backtracking and fetch quests fail to excite.

    If Capcom spices up the battle system a bit and hires some new writers, they may be able to create another Mega Man game worth playing...but until then, I'm keeping Star Force off the air.

If you like Battle Network and are looking for more, you've come to the right place. If not... run for your lives, because it's more of the same. If you like the story, play Leo, Dragon or Pegasus first. (They're all the same game pretty much) Expand
