Summary: I loved the Battle Network series A LOT so when I found out that they were making a spin-off, I was excited. I got this as soon as I got a DS Lite and played it non-stop. The game has an odd story to it, especially since the main character acts all shy and weak the whole time even though he kicks EM waves (Virus) butt. But regardless, it utilized the BN puzzle like feel pretty well.
Summary: As a longtime fan of the Battle Network series and owner of all six previous games (which I played the heck out of) I feel fairly qualified in commenting on the latest evolution in the series. The name has changed and all the characters have been replaced but it's clearly Battle Network and it would be absurd not to compare it to the previous iterations. Let me start by saying that my initial reaction was concern.
