Mega Man: Battle Network – Consumer Guide

Parents need not worry about this title. There is no blood. There is no bad language. The is a little violence, but nothing dies; things just get 'deleted.'

Fans of the original Mega Man games expecting a 2D action/platform will find something completely different, which they may or may not like. The only things that will be familiar are some of the characters; many, like Roll, Fire Man, Proto Man and Guts Man were brought over from the earlier Mega Man games.

RPG fans may want to check this title out though. Its a Japanese-style RPG with a light-hearted and charming story. The game is geared towards an audience of children though, and as a result, advanced players many find the game a little easy, and maybe a little short as well. The battle system still does offer plenty of depth for those willing to give the game try. There is also a link option, where players can trade battle chips or battle each other.
