*** It seems as if there was intended to be another game between 2 and 3, and low sales compelled Capcom to end the series with the heavy-hitting third game that we know today. (3 having content cut seems unlikely, as 3 is so stuffed already.)

*** It seems as if there was intended to be another game between 2 and 3, or at least another game after 3, and low sales compelled Capcom to end the series with the heavy-hitting third game that we know today. (3 having content cut seems unlikely, as 3 is so stuffed already.)

Added DiffLines:

*** Despite having the same overall look, role (heh), and even sharing the same traits of love and music, she is somehow not at all a successor to Roll.EXE? Yeah, she's partially a rival like Protoman as well, but she was clearly set up as something much more interesting. She also does Roll some justice as she gets involved with events (and with Geo) more often, particularly in the anime.

Added DiffLines:

** It's not as simple as "only moving left or right". The shield and the lock-on attacks were created to fill that gap. It was meant to be a change from numerous games of the same thing, and overall it's a worthwhile change.


Added DiffLines:

*** You absolutely need to have a look at the DS's specs and standards again. Star Force utilizes some higher-level spriting without rocking the boat so much. Reminds me of complaining about 2D games in the PlayStation era for "looking like a SNES game" when they almost always looked so much better.
*** Additionally, Star Force strongly distances itself from the Battle Network games in tone and in gameplay, while clearly being made by the same people as a follow-up project. The anime distances itself even further, both in tone and in aesthetic. To suggest that Star Force is merely a rehash is to ignore... basically all of Star Force.

** For one, it discarded the Star themes. The hero and villains being [[OutsideContextVillain outside each other's experience]] could have been interesting, but not much was done with it. The villains of the week lacked the nuance of the original's - The original victims were a lot more sympathetic as a rule than 2's already bad people, and the manipulative FMians were more interesting than the living weapons with one-track minds focused on destruction the UMAs turned out to be. And While Vega and Hollow were well done, Hyde was frustratingly non-threatening and Solo's PlotArmor was frustrating [[HeadsIWinTailsYouLose in a different way]].

* Okay, so in the time skip between Battle Network and Starforce, humanity for some reason decides to get rid of Navis (one of the primary purposes they had was virus busting) but not get rid of what they need to do (bust virus), so as a result there are viruses everywhere but nothing to stop them with. [[Main/WhatWereYouThinking What were they thinking?]]
** Is Star Force actually in Battle Network's future? I thought it was an AU.
*** Officially, Starforce takes place 200 years after Battle Network.

*** Besides, the virus in ''Battle Network'' are computer network viruses. The viruses in StarForce are EM viruses; they are different.
*** Technically, they would be the same -- the chief difference is that the StarForce viruses are wireless. They still deal in computer networks.

* What's wrong with Starforce 2? It had a lot of fun locations and bosses, the villain was interesting, and I enjoyed the story.

* Can somebody explain how Battle Cards actually work? In the anime, All I can see is that Subaru swipes a card, and then boom, weakling gone. Why does nobody else use Battle Cards? Hell, how exactly do people bust viruses in the first place if nobody can see them and viruses usually infect their devices anyway?

** The anime at one point implies that Battle Cards have actually been outmoded. When Cygnus returns and takes a shot and conquering Japan, the Satellite Police stop being unable to use those vacuum-cleaner containment units of theirs since there are too many viruses to store in the tanks, so Goyouda takes out his Battle Cards and discovers they still work.

* After the fight with Hallow in the 2nd game, Solo appears and transforms in front of you (and is knocked out of his wave change after the fight) and Hyde just stands there unchanged, how exactly are they standing on the wave road before he transforms?

* How do the Stellers survive? There is no indication Hope has a job, and [[DisappearedDad Kelvin]] isn't believed to be dead by his family [[spoiler:and he isn't]], so no money comes from his death.

** Battle Cards. According to the anime, any idiot with a Transer can use a card to damage a virus. The only difference between Rockman and everyone else is that Rockman jumps through the additional hoop of performing Predation with the card and then having to actually wield whatever weapon the card manifests rather than just sliding it in to his Transer and watching the virus die. Presumably, Rockman's way is somehow more efficient or effective than what normal use of a Battle Card can do.

* How come there aren't Illegal Data cards in SF3 for Hollow, Kung Foo Kidd, or Harp Note?
** FridgeBrilliance because Hollow was only a matter wave not a EM being, Harp Note and Kung Foo Kidd was never deleted.
* Why is it that [[DudeWheresMyRespect no officials actually respect Geo]] in the third game? That kid is an ''expert'' in Wave battling compared to them (and hell, he did it ''before'' them), and certainly should get more then a "let's test him and see how good he is".
