  1. You'll wander the world in typical RPG fashion, but the battle system is truly unique and fun.
  2. The formula is still the same old formula, luckily for Capcom it still remains fun. [JPN Import]

    If there's one complaint, it's the visuals. They're not bad, just more or less the same visuals we've seen since part one. [Aug 2004, p.89]
  4. While Mega Man Battle Network 4 shares most, if not all, of its play mechanics with its three predecessors, it still offers some new aspects and, above all else, its still very fun.
  5. The combat is just as good as ever, even if the plot has been mucked up a bit. It’s not like these games ever had the best plots to begin with anyway.
  6. The depth is simply amazing, it seemed like there was something to learn every time I played it.
  7. 75
    Even with the new systems, the core mechanics are losing their edge and the tournament structured story isn't helping things, either.
  8. Fans of the previous games will love it, as it's really a continuation of the same game play, and has all of the same characters. It's got some solid mechanics, it can be quite a bit of fun, but it's very linear, and it can get fairly tedious once you've made a little headway into it.
  9. MMBN4 has slicker interfaces and improved visuals.

    This game gets points just for being a Battle Network game but this is easily the weakest of the series. If you have never played a BattleThis game gets points just for being a Battle Network game but this is easily the weakest of the series. If you have never played a Battle Network game, CHANGE THAT! Personally, I would recommend Battle Network 3 or 6 to change your dilemma. Battle Network 4 was the first attempt at using "souls" and did away with the "styles" of the previous game. The series did turn out to continue using "souls" and eventually found out how to do it correctly. Battle Network 4 was weak in the story department and although having fun gameplay, the game forces you to grind the story 3 or 4 times in order to 100% the game and that gets tedious after the first play-through. I can see how users would rate this game highly if it was their first exposure to the Battle Network games because the Battle Network games are totally unlike other games and they are incredible amounts of fun. Please play Battle Network 3, 6, 5, or 2 before you play this one.
