  1. If you can stomach or even master the unforgiving battle conditions, it's a good game with an okay story and good combat.
  2. Like most Mega Man games, just don't look for much originality or innovation.
  3. Pretty much the same game as it's predecessors, MegaMan Battle Network 5 - Team Protoman offers little innovation, but exceptional gameplay for those whose interest it sparks.
  4. 70
    The biggest problem with Battle Network 5 is the same thing that has plagued all the other sequels in the series: it's just too darn much like its predecessors.
  5. I hate to penalize an overall score just because the game feels re-hashed, but some of the gameplay is feeling old. Still, MMBN 5 is above average.
  6. 65
    It's all just an incremental advancement, more focusing on a new story than a new experience. And the story doesn't really go that far away from what's already been done in the past four games.
  7. There's no reason to knock a formula that works, but keeping too close to the formula through five editions is only going to satisfy those who have a truly insatiable thirst for more of the same.

    It's a good game with combat music and hightech graphics. Its a pretty hard game and thats wat makes it challenging and more exiting!

    This game is the best out of the two version. But this game isn't the best out of the series.

    This isn't the horrible atrocity that is battle Network 4, but the same crisis scenarios are matched with the different navis depending on the version you buy. Musicwise aside from the internet theme, the soundtrack is laughable at best. Capcom could've truly done better if they went back to the formula and graphics used in Battle Networks 1-3, hell if they did the series would probably still be around and selling! Expand
