Mega Man Battle Network Chrono X – 5.0 stars
General commentary/overview: MegaMan Battle Network Chrono X runs smooth, and is very accurate to the series its based off of. Fast paced gameplay, an enjoyable experience, and an immersive story await you in this game. The battle system offers layers of strategy, and the boss encounters are fun. The playable demo is about 2 and a half hours long (including extras) and doesn’t take up a lot of memory.

Pros: If you’re a fan of the MMBN series, you’ll feel right at home with the attention to detail. Every nuance has been recreated from scratch from the series in GameMaker. The music, the dialogue, the battles, everything will remind of a real-like Battle Network game. I was blown away by everything. The musical score sounds BN-like, sounds were accurate, and it was overall very enjoyable. Fans will once again assume the role of Lan Hikari and his NetNavi, MegaMan.EXE, to protect the cyberworld.

Cons: The only real flaw is that this game is incomplete. But, the whole point of a demo is to garner attention. This, aside from some minor bugs is all the cons I can think of.

Gameplay: As mentioned before, the battle network style gameplay is perfectly recreated in Chrono X. If you’ve played a Battle Network game before, you’ve played them all. Battles consist of an 18 square grid, divided into 2 sections of 9 each. You are based on the red side, while the opponent blue. Your goal is to delete everything on the blue chips via utilizing something called “Battlechips”. Battlechips can be just about anything. You can slice enemies to bits, or blow them up. The system is strategic as certain battlechips can only be used with others, and there are elemental effects.

Sound: There are some new sounds, but most of them are from the old games, which helps with the immersion.

Replay: The replay value is rather small, but it’s a demo, so it’s understandable. There’s some secret content to keep you busy shortly after the story is done.

Final Words: This game does well in what it does. There are some new chips, viruses and a new plot to run through, while keeping the core gameplay the same. If you’re a fan of the series, there’s really no reason not to play this. If, for some reason, you’re a new player, then this game might actually want to make you the play the real series

Score: 5 stars out of 5.
