  • Summary: Mega Man Star Force introduces a new lead character, a boy named Subaru Hoshikawa, whose astronaut father has disappeared after a mysterious incident at the satellite station. Fond memories of spending time with his father have inspired Subaru's interests in the stars and what lies beyond. One day, Subaru heads to the observation deck and puts on a pair of "visualizer" glasses that had belonged to his father. These allow the wearer to see all the electric connections that exist between spaces. When he puts on these special goggles, a specific wave is triggered, summoning the presence of a mysterious alien life form named Warlock who had escaped from the planet FM. Dangerous creatures from that planet have come to attack Earth, so they must join together in order to defeat these menacing forces. Combining with Warlock enables Subaru to transform into Mega Man and enter the Wave Road. Features 2wo coexisting worlds – players can navigate the real world as Subaru and transform into Mega Man to travel across Wave Road. Three stellar versions call upon the power of the elements to offer distinct advantages: Pegasus – based on the water element, Ice Pegasus can instantly freeze an opponent with its special Ice Slash; Leo – turning up the heat, Fire Leo uses a special Flame Burner attack that can incinerate enemies in its path; Dragon – the ferocious Green Dragon draws upon the power of wood with a Wood Shot move that fires a cluster of razor sharp leaves to slash enemies to bits.

  1. Mega Man Star Force can be either good or bad, depending on how you approach it. If you want something that's completely different and pushes the envelope, you'll likely be disappointed with the end product. On the other hand, if you've grown accustomed to Capcom reinventing its franchise series by increments, you might just warm up to Star Force.
  2. Still, overall it offers an enjoyable plot combined with a good battle system and interesting characters, making this latest Mega Man game a welcome addition to the saga not just for fans, but also for those wanting their first taste of the Blue Bomber.

    There’s potential here, but Capcom needs to put more varied action in this action-RPG.
  4. Despite various minor improvements, Mega Man Star Force isn't significantly different than the GBA Battle Network games.
  5. 52
    There's not enough of an RPG foundation to keep RPG purists' attention, there's not enough action to appeal to the mainstream gamer, and the linear feel of the game will leave most gamers feeling trapped (though there are sidequests here and there).
  6. I felt like a ten year-old throughout most of the playtime, thanks to how both generic and dumbed down the game felt for the most part.

    Well, there has been many reviews for this game. Some hardcore fans or 3D RPG players might agree with the good ones, while some really hate this game. Actually, in my opinion, the game is quite bad. The storyline is rather repetitive, bosses after bosses, insane stages with mini games, and they are quite time-wasting. Not to continue jeering the plot, but the storyline is extremely nonsensical. Think about it; the adults are so gullible, the EM stuffs have so low security that Megaman could just randomly pulse in and attack whenever he wants, and lastly they are having a 14 years old kid to save the world from some insane alien. However, I would want to commend on the battle system. It is well-organised, and has a well-leveled difficulty that everyone would enjoy challenging. Other than that, the characters are characterised through the words and emotions well, enough for us to understand what they are feeling.
    I feel that the worst part is the encounter rate. The battle is good, yes, but it gradually becomes annoying with that freaking music slamming your ears when you were walking a few steps onwards. The rate is so high that it shamed the RPG realm, seriously.
    Overall, this game is playable, but if you are first time into Megaman series, please avoid this and play the other series first. I recommand Megaman X for beginners.
