  • Summary: Mega Man Star Force 2 continues two months after the previous game left off. 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.

    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.
  2. 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]
  3. An improvement on the same old formula. It plays exactly the same in the overall sense, but it refines things a little, patches in a new story, and generally upgrades things to be better suited to the DS system, avoiding gimmicks in favor of polishing the gameplay and graphics. To casual players, it is mostly the same game.
  4. The story is awful, and the gameplay isn't solid enough to carry the weight of an entire RPG.
  5. Sadly, for returning fans there is very little here that is worth a purchase seeing as the rest feels like a rehash of the first game.
  6. 50
    There are plenty of other games on Nintendo’s little handheld that warrant your money over yet another Capcom rehash.
  7. 33
    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.
