  1. You'll wander the world in typical RPG fashion, but the battle system is truly unique and fun.
  2. 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.

    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]

    A space-themed central story gives the game greater scope than its predecessors. [Aug 2004, p.123]

    It's difficult to dismiss the overlying cuteness and simple-but-solid gameplay, which continues to put the series on the top tier of portable RPGs.

    This iteration still hasn't fixed the one problem that's been plaguing the series since its inception: snooze-inducing level design. Another decent entry in the series, but nothing more. [June 2004, p.73]
  7. Red Sun isn't as polished as the rest of the series. The game requires a few too many needless quests to get the meat and potatoes : the Net Battles.

    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. ([Best Battle Network] 3, 6, 2/5, 1, 4 [Worst Battle Network]) My preference of best Battle Network to worst Battle Network games Expand
