Mega Man Battle Network 5: Double Team DS incorporates both team protoman and team Colonel into one game. Pick one then transfer save data to the other. Endless battlechips, bosses, Navi's and action packed fun. The bottom screen is highly utilized by making it your PET, and allowing the action to be played out on the top so there is no flip flopping between PEt menu and gameplay. No save limits allow you to save whenever, wherever. More strategical and free than traditional MegaMan games , perfect for someone new to this series or to MegaMan in general. All directions and rules are described in game, as long as you've played DS before the controls will be just fine. Works fine on a regular DS, but for overall, wrist/shoulder saving a DS Lite is highly recommended.

If youve already played/beaten the GBA megaman battle network 5 TP or TC then I wouldnt bother with this one. There arent enough differences to make it worth while. Also, a small mistake I made was that I though it was "both games in one" as in both stories combined into one story. Actually its the 2 different games, each with a seperate file for saving and neither effect the others file unless you count the secret at the end. The new touch screen options arent that cool either. You can use the touch screen to jack in and out and they have an interesting folder edit system (your chips). Also they added voices to some characters. Megaman tends to yell "Lets bust some viruses","Lets do this", and of coarse when you jack in Lan yells "Megaman. Jack in. Execute." And during battle megaman might sigh or grunt when attacked. I am a hard core megaman battle network fan but even this game tested me. Its difficult going through the same story three times. (The first time I beat it, beating the ds version on TP file, beating the DS version on TC file) It is a great game if you havent beaten the GBA one.

i must say I may be a Little harsh by raiting this as weak but not by much theirs just no point the double team thing made no sense whatsoever and its just the exact same thing of course I must say I love battle network so I would reccomend the series but i would not recomend this game
