  1. This is one rare time when a sequel is better than the original.
  2. The sequel improves on its predecessor in many departments, and it’s just plain fun to live in the net world.
  3. It’s addictive and much more varied than the original...The combination of the RPG aspects and the real-time/turn-based battle system is the main draw for this unique game.
  4. This is pure Capcom magic. [Aug 2002, p.76]
  5. The quirky and unique game demands to be played and enjoyed by the masses. [Winter 2002, p.36]
  6. The sequel shines even brighter. [June 2002, p.150]
  7. This remolding of the classic action hero was a big departure from the traditional action the series was built on, and stood as a highly enjoyable, solid, and creative game worth getting into.

    I agree with Gabriel A., if you don't buy it at least rent it.It has great graphics (considering it's GBA) and the gameplay is awesome.

    This game kept me buisy for quite some time and I'm just now figuring out some new stuff. If you haven't played this game yet I highly recommend you buy this game or at least rent it Expand

    I got Battle Network 3 when I was 11, and played the HELL out of it for the next few years. Everything about it just blew me away from the graphics to the vast ammount of secrets to discover...When I got Battle Network 2 I was blown away for a second time because while the menus seemed a bit dated, it had something the other games lacked. While quality dialogue and character development are lacking, this is aimed at a younger audience that doesn't really look for that stuff. I pretty much spent the better part of a year and a half perfecting this game and I completed it 100%. I was 13, and now I'm 19 and still playing it on an emulator, reliving every glorious moment. It shows how good a game is when it's just as fun as you remember it all those years ago! Expand
