  1. It's unlike anything I’ve ever played.
  2. It has a very good RPG system for those who like that kind of thing, but it also has that twitch reflex element that I loved so much about the other sidescrolling Megaman games.

    The best Battle Network yet.
  4. If this is your typeof game, be sure to pick it up. It deepens as you progress, always keeping players wanting more. [Fall 2003, p.48]
  5. If you can get past the deja vu, you'll most likely have a great time with BN3. Let's just hope the next one offers something new. [June 2003, p.133]
  6. Complex, but fun. [July 2003, p.147]
  7. If you’ve already played the first two games, there’s not much point in playing this one.

The Mega Man Battle Network games were unbelievable because of this one. Everyone who plays this game will love it. The story is loosely connected to the previous games and you do not need to play them to play this installment. The original Battle Network was unrefined and needed work, but the structure of the game we love is there. Battle Network 2 was arguably one of the best of the Battle Network series because it had refined and fixed what the first installment missed. Battle Network 3 was probably the best in the entire series of Battle Network games because it improved on Battle Network 2 and even had a great multiplayer aspect. The Navi Customizer and different "styles" one could create was amazing and allowed for a lot of experimentation and really made you feel like you were customizing your navi! This game also had challenges that were SUPER difficult and deep like collecting the 7 stars for your title screen. In my opinion, this was the best out of every Battle Network game and you MUST play this. Expand

The story is great, the battle system is spectacularly crafted, and collecting has never been more fun/ challenging!
