In addition, Mega Man Star Force 3 will be available in the Black Ace game variety. Mega Man Star Force 3: Black Ace is an entirely separate game, with its own 100 unique Noise Change transformation variants.

The Story
In Mega Man Star Force: Red Joker, players travel between the physical world and the digital world via electromagnetic waves that form wave roads. Geo Stelar, the protagonist of the game, can see these wave roads through usage of his unique visualiser tool. Once in the digital world, Geo can merge with the electronic life-form known as Omega-Xis to become Mega Man. And Mega Man's help is definitely needed. The wave roads are being overrun, systems are going out of control and viruses are increasing in aggressiveness due to the mysterious noise, generated by Meteor G, an approaching gigantic asteroid. Something must be done about this threat to both the physical and digital worlds of Mega Man Star Force 3. Fortunately, Mega Man discovers that as dangerous as the noise is, he can also control it using the new Noise Change system to transform into his Red Joker form.

Gameplay
As in the previous games, Mega Man Star Force 3: Red Joker is a unique blend of action and role-playing game (RPG), combining the high intensity combat that is the hallmark of Mega Man games with Star Force’s strategic battle system. The game's action unfolds in an episodic fashion, with players exploring, collecting items, and defeating enemies to progress the story. When enemies and bosses are defeated players are awarded "battle cards" that enhance and evolve Mega Man’s abilities and attacks.

Black Ace Game Integration
Red Joker is only half of the Mega Man Star Force 3 experience. The story and action are integrated with the game's companion release, also for Nintendo DS, Mega Man Star Force 3: Black Ace. Red Joker players with friends who own Mega Man Star Force 3: Black Ace can share unique items and powers back and forth by utilizing the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection, thereby enhancing their individual characters and digging deeper into each game.

Key Features

  • Game in two coexisting worlds as you explore the real world in human form and transform into Mega Man to maneuver through the virtual "Wave World."
  • The main theme is 'Noise' and during battle the Noise Ratio is indicated on the screen. The Noise Ratio increases in different situations. As the Noise Ratio increases there are different effects.
  • Cyber battles feature an immersive third person view as players engage enemies in a 3x5 battle grid.
  • Cards now stack and are scattered randomly. Only the top card can be used when stacked. Mega-class and Giga-class cards have greater surface areas and are more likely to stack.
  • There are more than 100 Mega Man transformations possible by utilizing "Noise Change."
  • Each character has their own customizable personal page in the game where Battle Cards and information can be viewed and traded with friends to compare progress.
  • Red Joker features the ability to share content wirelessly via a Nintendo Wi-Fi connection with its companion DS game, Mega Man Star Force 3 Black Ace, extending gaming possibilities, as well as adding hours of play time to the title.
  • Online multi-cartridge multiplayer support options.

Anyone who has played the previous SF titles will no doubt enjoy this game. I have tried the Battle Network series before and never quite got hooked. But SF has continued to catch my attention since the beginning. Fans will be glad to see familiar faces return, as well as a stellar conclusion to the main plot of the game. The new enemy threat fits right in, as they feel like lifelong rivals. The difficulty progressively increases, especially near the end. Diehard fans with push through the challenge and find another great Mega Man game to add to their DS collection.

I have been a long time fan of the Mega Man Battle Network series, of which Star Force is a spin-off/sequel to. The games have followed the original format throughout the whole series, but find ways to vary the game play. With 9 games (6 Battle Network, 3 StarForce) out, there are some low points and some highs. StarForce 3 ranks in the top third in the series for me.

One of my main complaints with some of the other games in this series is that the boss areas were less about exploring a location and solving a few puzzles, in favor of mini-games of varying quality. Starforce 3 drops a lot of the mini-games, keeping you more into the storyline. The mini-games that I recall, had direct bearing on the story and felt quite epic in the form of defensive/offensive operations as opposed to say, unearthing generic npcs from an avalanche while skiing (StarForce 2).

The battle system continues on from the previous 2 games, with a form changing system akin to style changes from the early battle network games. The difference being, you have to earn your power ups in each battle. Once you can transform, you can overkill enemies to increase a counter. When the counter is at 50, you get your form's special powers. At 100 or above, you start the next battle at 50. At 200 or more you can become your title's final form and use special skills based on how high your counter is. You can also combine forms, but I have not been able to try that.

This game has a 'brother band' system where linking your game with friends who also play it, allows you to equip more power ups, and combine your forms. Without friends that also have the game, it becomes more difficult to combine forms. You would need to win a battle online vs likely over powered opponents, to get new forms that way.

As a long-time fan of Megaman Battle Network, I recently got majorly into the Starforce series in hopes that it would be at least slightly like its ancestor. Jumping from the Gameboy Advance straight to the Nintendo DS, I discovered that, despite a few things I could nitpick about for a few hours, the Starforce series did a pretty swell job of retaining the crown of Nintendo DS ARPG's. And hey, what better way to cap off your series with a game that completely and utterly blows away the other ones? Brace yourselves for the end of a series that brought me an unbelievable amount of closure as we jump right into the final installment: Megaman Starforce 3, the Black Ace version!

STORY: 9/10
For the most part, the story could be considered generic, but if you've played the other games in the series before this, you know why. It continues from where the second game left off, in an age where technology has practically reached its peak. With the introduction of Wizards and EM Beings now known all throughout the world, people are learning to live more decent and wonderful lives with these digitized beings as both partners and friends in everyday activity. However, an evil organization that simply goes by the name of Dealer intends to bring about the destruction of this mechanical society, utilizing the power of an unknown and mysterious crystallized substance called "Crimson" to bring about the restoration of a mighty red star shining in the deepest parts of space, threatening to consume the entire world whole. Now, Megaman and gang have one last battle to win, and it will determine the very future of every single life on Earth. The story's severity starts off slightly meager, but as you make your way through the game, it becomes more grievous and substantial.

Hands down best game in the Starforce trilogy, It polished the battle system to what it should have always been and gives us countless transformations or at least used to. Now due to lack of Wi-fi integration the Noises are mostly limited to how many friends you can actually get to buy and play with you. Overall it is an amazing game but the price is outrageous for how limited it is now. Hopefully it could get a 3DS remake in a far future.

I have now played all three games and I must say the series starts and ends strongly. The characters are believe able and the story will touch your heart if you let it.
I originally selected the games because I am a fan of mega man in general.
