The story and battle system were alright. It's everything else that they've done to the game that's made it feel like it was lagging behind all the others. Net Squares disappeared, the town's redone, the music feels out of place compared to the first three, the translation was shotty at points, the game throws in some oddities that feel irrelevant as compared to the series, it feels they've completely downplayed the NaviCustomizer, and then there are those people who dislike the whole random "episodic" feel to the tournaments. There's also the other group of people who are pissed over the Style Change/Double Soul switch. I myself don't mind them, but I do feel like this game was definitely lacking compared to the rest.
"Episodic"? The whole BN SERIES is "Episodic" One navi attacks, Megaman finds way to win, Bad navi goes bye bye. Over and over in what you might call "episodes" Ideally calling BN4 Episodic and complaining about it is Hypocritical.
The navi customizer really wasn't even the biggest thing to begin with to, I personally liked the power up system just fine myself. Because it's stats STAYED AFTER I PUT THEM THERE AND DIDN'T HAVE TO BE REMOVED.
Soul-wise I thought that is was flawed but actually a good concept. Instead of just styles why not build on the design of them and make Souls, it's really actually a decent idea. The cross system is probably what Capcom was really aiming for at the time, but it just was experimental in BN4.
As for the translation issues, there's at least one in just about every import game anyways, and really the worst about it seems to be BN5...
AS for the remodel, it really wasn't a bad idea also, give the characters some fresh looks, re-do the town so it it looks more futuristic, really, I don't see how people can constantly gripe about a make-over that really wasn't a big deal anyways. The whole Net square thing was overrated anyways, it was just the merchants that made it worthwhile and there's still Net merchants even after the disappearance of the Net squares...
