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: 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: 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.
