  1. Battle Chip Challenge plays a lot like an electronic gambling machine; hardly interactive but fun all the same.
  2. The constant optimism of the characters, the bright and breezy sounds and sights and the constant urge to retry a battle over and over with different chips makes it one to come back to many times.

    With 194 availalable chips to acquire, three modes of play (including a Game Link versus mode), and nine classes of compeittion, Mega Man Battle Chip Challenge is deep in gameplay, and it's a game truly worthy of the Mega Man name. [Feb 2004, p.94]
  4. There's less action but more strategy. It's a nice change of format and one that is entirely addicting.
  5. The rules are dense and battles require very little player participation but the process of accumulating chips and designing decks is tons of fun. [Apr 2004, p.122]
  6. The mild strategy elements and simple gameplay involved could appeal to younger players, but not to anyone who actually enjoys controlling events onscreen. [Mar 2004, p.114]
  7. 60
    As ridiculous as it sounds, with a little more money and thought put into how the player might react to not actually playing the game, this could've been something worthwhile.
  8. Unfortunately, the actual battles aren't that great; they're a tedious exercise in repeatedly pressing the A button to advance dialog boxes. [March 2004, p.130]
  9. It's hard to imagine Battle Chip Challenge appealing to anyone but the tiny, dedicated group of MMBN link battlers to whom it's a love letter. [Summer 2004, p.55]
  10. 55
    It's hard to imagine Battle Chip Challenge appealing to anyone but the tiny, dedicated group of MMBN link battlers to whom it's a love letter.
  11. A dull title with next to no actual gameplay to be found...Most people are going to fall asleep playing this game.
