Megaman Battle Network 6 - Cybeast Falzar & Cybeast Gregar

The incredible end to an incredible series!

If you share the majority opinion about the Megaman Battle Network series, you know that 2 and 3 are the best games, followed by on o.k 4 and 1, and a horrible 5. When I first heard about this game, I was a little hesitant to buy it. The 5th game I thought, was horrible. Just, completely, 100% horrible. So as you can expect, I was a little scared this game would be too. However, when I played it, I was completely wrong about it.

STORY: The story in this one is mind blowing. Lan Hikari, the series's main protagonist, is moving to a new city. You meat a cast of new characters including Mick, Tab, Iris, and Mr. Match. When you log onto the City's net, you learn the legend of the Two cybeasts, Gregar and Falzar, who defeated themselves in an enigmatic pit know only as "The Underground". When mysterious people want to awaken the cybeasts, and destryo the net, it's up to Lan and Megaman to stop them! Through the game, you'll encounter tons of plot twists that will keep you in the dark till the very end.

GAMEPLAY: The gameplay is much the same as it was in the previous games. As Lan, you walk around the real world and interact with people. As Megaman, you walk around the internet, fighting viruses and doing tasks to help people. In battle, Megaman can move up, down, left, and right on a 3x3 grid, while enemies can do the same on their own 3x3 grid which is adjacent to yours. Throughout the game, you get to use new "crosses" which you can execute in battle for bonuses and stuff. Also, once you get the power of the Cybeast Falzar, you can "beast out" to Increas movement and get extra bonuses. Also, you can combine Beast Out and Crosses to Get even more extra goodies.

GRAPHICS: The original graphics style was better than this. In 4, you were introduced to the new "chibbi" looked. It got lots of "thumbs down" at first. They finally perfected it in this one. It actually looks... great!

SOUND: Just like all the other games, this has new musics, and also remixes of classic Megaman songs... not much else to say...

OVERALL: The game doesn't end once you beat it, there are still tons of side quests to do. So, really, it's replayable. This incredible game ends one of the most incredible series ever

SYSTEM: Game Boy Advance
