  1. Despite there being some room for improvement, I have no problem calling Mega Man Battle Network 6 the series' best entry yet. [Aug 2006, p.86]
  2. The graphics reek of four years ago, and animation is horrible.
  3. For anyone that poured their heart into any of the last two or three games, however, Mega Man Battle Network 6 definitely comes across as been there, done that.

    If you've never seen the allure of the Mega Man Battle Network series, this latest installment isn't going to win you over. Even if you are a fan, the heavy sense of déjà vu might have you feeling a little apathetic by now.
  5. If you've never played the Battle Network games before, the latest version is a fine way to introduce yourself to the series, but you'd do just as well with one of the older titles -- after all, they're cheaper and offer about the same experience.

    When playing through Battle Network 6 we couldn't help but feel like we've already collected this chip, fought that fight and tracked down that meaningless item countless times. We've "been there, done that" five times already and veterans of the series will undoubtedly feel the same way.

    Without the story, all your venturing through the game would be for naught. It's the redeeming quality that makes the back-and-forth, to-and-fro quests, the battles every five feet, and the unaltered appearance worth wading through. It's just something that you'll really have to want to do.

    both versions are good even though i prefer this one, this is the best balance in power i have seen between two versions of battle networkwhile maintaining individual advantages. I like the new characters and navi's,it's a great way to finish this series. I cannot wait for megaman ZX as well! Expand

    If Battle Network 4 set the series astray, BN6 resurected it. This game has a more complicated storyline than any of the other games in the series, and adds much needed improvement to gameplay. The tedious chip sacrificing double soul has been set aside for a much welcomed cross-system that is free. This game tweaks even the folder rules which had been static since BN3, but was it really necessary? Battle Network 6 certainly did what the past two installments could not, but it still has that overall childish feel in the graphics and color schemes that 4 and 5 had. It wraps up the ending in a nice bow, but again I feel they went a bit too far on that end; some things should be left for the player to decipher on their own, such as the outcome of Lan and Mayl. As a standalone title, this game is one of the best on GBA but alongside Battle Networks 1, 2, and 3 this game is seems just a bit too childish and mediocre. I suggest skipping 4 and 5 altogether, but play this if you want to know how the series ends. Expand
