This week for Retro Game Friday I’m covering the sequel to a favorite game of mine. It’s Mega Man Battle Network 2!

Plot Synopsis: Three months following the events of Mega Man Battle Network the story opens with the world in a time of peace following the defeat of the organization known as the WWW. However, NetCrime, as perpetrated by a NetMafia organization known as Gospel, is on the rise.

Plot: The plot isn’t super amazing, but that was never the draw of the games.

Gameplay: This game took what was great about the first game and improved it with the Style system, a system that allowed Mega Man to take on different forms in combat based on your actions in game. Otherwise this was a lot like the first game, which was excellent.

Art: Thankfully this is a 2D game so the art is pretty awesome, even now.

Music: A lot like the first game’s music.

Overall: If you’ve never played it, you really ought to if you get the chance.

For those who like: Mega Man, Battle Network, Action, Adventure, Strategy, Excellent Gameplay, Fun Cast of Characters, Great Artwork.

Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above.
