Part 2 of the Mega Man Battle Network RPG franchise has our primary character Lan finishing up the school year eager to get on with summer vacation. No sooner does Lan get going when he finds himself doing battle against the latest of the net terrorists. A group calling themselves the 'net-Mafia Gospel'? is stirring up trouble and the call goes out to anyone who happens to be handy at battling in the digital world. You see Lan's computerized counterpart is none other then the legendary Megaman.

The game is almost a kid friendly version of the movie 'The Matrix'? only the humans know about and control their digital selves. As you zip around the game as Lan, the idea is to talk to everyone you meet as they almost all have something important to say. One of the most mind-numbing parts of the game is the amount of reading you must do in the beginning, as you will need to learn specific skills in order to get the game moving. Once the somewhat slow intro sequences that occur in the classroom come to an end, you will have free rein to run around the 'real'? world looking for net ports to jack into with your 'PET.'? A PET is a highly complex portable computer that everyone seems to posses in order to maintain their daily routine.

Your PET controls Megaman and is used to control your battle against the net-mafia. Now don't get me wrong, Lan is not Megaman in this alternate universe and it is very necessary that Lan speak with Megaman throughout the game as things that occur in the real world affect the computer world and vice-versa. As a matter of fact, many of the game's challenges involve using cross-dimensional investigating in order to complete the quests that arise.The setup of battling in the computer world is pretty user-friendly and many a gamer will feel right at home with the setup. Megaman is a game that will only appeal to those who like a slightly more engaging and dedicated RPG adventure. The game isn't overly complicated after playing for a half an hour but the RPG heavy elements will not appeal to all gamers.
