OK for fans of the series, otherwise mega boring.

There's a lot of logic involved in winning here, and that's enhanced by the ability to play the game with a pal via Nintendo's Wi-Fi connection, a real plus. Beyond the local DS connection, you can play via the Internet, but only to exchange cards and powers. The music seems to be the same as in other Mega Man games, and the graphics make you feel as is you're playing a game from years ago. Often, because of the amount of cards and powers, these kinds of games skimp on artwork and beautiful cut scenes. But the look of the game is so poor and the dialog so often inane, it may even put off the most diehard Mega Man fan, even though there are a mammoth 279 battle cards provided in the deck.While Star Force 2 has potential because of its Wi-Fi abilities and many battle cards, something important is lost through abysmal writing and old school graphics.
