  1. This radical departure adds a level of depth to the series as a whole - MM fans should pick it up out of loyalty - anyone who's not a hardcore fan should let this one settle back into the big blue.

    Where Mega Man Battle Network fails is that it can too often venture into the realms of monotony with a relatively unexciting setting that may be a bit too ingrained by Pokemon culture to stand out.

Although it's not as fleshed out as Battle Networks 2 or 3 it is still a very unique stand-alone title that will have you occupied for hours of your time. However I must mark it down afew notches because it seems like it's missing a lot which the sequels addressed; most notably a "run" command. Full Review »
