Mega Man Network Transmission
Into Liquid Sky
22 April 2005
Excerpt: After years of 3D adventures and some 2D sidescrollers on the GBA, Mega Man makes his return to 2D on a console with this Gamecube title based off of the cartoon series. As an online avatar for Lan, Mega Man runs around the net fighting viruses and other online problems.
Pros: 2D action plus cel-shaded cartoon style, Battle chips system is a nice addition, Fun music
Cons: Insane difficulty, Buster is ridiculously underpowered, Visual package could use a little more style
Conclusion: Put it this way, if you want this kind of game for the Gamecube, you’re going to have a hard time trying to find it. It plugs one of the Gamecube’s many gaps: the side scrolling platformer.
Excerpt: MegaMan and Battle Network pal, Lan, are in trouble again. It?s only been a month since the evilWWW terrorist?s attempts to hijack an important military satellite was shut down. And, yet, Cyberspace is about to be hit by an even more resilient, never-seen-before-now virus, code-named ?Zero?.
Excerpt: Things change over time. And I'm not talking about going from 2D to 3D. Culture changes. And whatever the intents or purposes of the culture makers (or artists, choose your term), they have to change with the times.
Excerpt: Capcom doses us again with the Mega Man goodness, and we wish we loved it more. Mega Man Network Transmission returns to its 2D roots to commemorate the 15th anniversary of our little blue hero, but a variety of things keep this from being our retro hit of the summer.

Conclusion: As for replay value, the game does offer some incentive to replay because of the chip system, as well as the level of customization on Mega Man.EXE. Some levels do sport some secret areas as well, which may warrant someone to play through more than once.
