GameSpot writes: "The first few Battle Network games were great, and there's certainly plenty of potential for an RPG series starring Mega Man. Unfortunately, the series has progressed very little in the last eight years. If you've never played a Star Force game or if it has been a while since you've picked up the Battle Network series, then you might find some fun here. The solid battle mechanics and satisfying boss encounters will probably be enough to pull you through the inane plot and aged visuals. If you've played any recent entries in the series, you'll want to avoid this shameless retread of an already tiresome formula".
