Excerpt: Platform: GameBoy Advance ESRB Rating: Everyone Developer: Capcom Players: 1-2 Mega Man Battle Network isn’t like the typical platform games we’re used to. In fact, it is not a platformer at all; it’s an RPG. In MMBN you play the roles of both Mega Man, and his owner Lan. Lan is just a typical grade school student, but he’s ready to take action when Dr. Wily’s organization, the WWW, starts to terrorize his town.
Excerpt: When I first saw the concept behind this
game, I’ll admit, I was somewhat skeptical. I remembered the last time
I had tried a Megaman game that took the series in a "whole-new
direction" (Megaman Legends for the PS), and how much I had hated it.
In this case, I was wrong to be skeptical. The game is really fun,
combining the engines of a classic Megaman game and a turn-based RPG,
in order to form original gameplay.
Excerpt: Mega Man returns to your GBA in Mega Man Battle Network White. This is one half of a pair of titles that offer more of the Battle Network card collecting and net surfing action you've come to love (or not).
Excerpt: From Mary Shelly's Frankenstein to Spielberg's AI , the notion of an artificial being, created in the likeness of a human, is a subject that continues to captivate fans of science fiction. Ironically, despite the interest, characters like Frankenstein and David are often tragic; their lives made miserable by the fear and suspicion of real people. Such responses aren't always justified, but that's how people would probably react when faced by such beings.
Excerpt: As of 2002, Mega Man has been around for 15 years. Needless to say, the little guy has been quite prolific, hopping deftly from game platform to platform and bravely exploring and acquiring the skills of new genres. Aside from numerous action outings, the Blue Bomber has raced carts, played soccer, and has even entered a few fighting tournaments.
Excerpt: Capcoms Megaman war bislang auf jeder Nintendo-Konsole mit mindestens einem Spiel vertreten. Seit den ersten NES-Tagen kämpfte der Roboterheld, der in Japan übrigens den Namen Rockman trägt, gegen boshafte Blechkollegen. Meistens handelte es sich bei Megaman-Titeln jedoch um actionreiche Side-Scroller, in jüngster Zeit auch Third-Person-Action. Ableger wie das fast in Vergessenheit geratene Megaman Soccer sind hingegen weniger für den Welterfolg der Serie verantwortlich.
