Mega Man 5 review

Review date unknown

Jason Venter says: "The eight stages may not seem all that original (many of them just seem like variations of some of the less memorable stages from past games), but their actual construction is still proficient. Gamers will guide Mega Man along the top of a train, and inside its engine. They'll ride bubbles toward a spike-lined ceiling, hop aboard a watercraft for some shooting fun on the river."

overdrive says: "After you’ve played a certain number of the classic Mega Man games, they can become very difficult to rate. On a positive note, when you put a Mega Man game into your Nintendo, you know you’re going to be playing an excellent cartoonish platformer with tight play control, the ability to steal weapons from bosses and a fateful encounter with the overlord of all evil senior citizens — Dr. Wily.

Mega Man 5 review

Reviewed August 21, 2012

zippdementia says: "You know what the majority of Mega Man 5 feels like? It feels like a chore to complete before being allowed to play the real game. That game is to be found in the walls of the castle stages, where the challenge finally picks up and presents us with some of the best-designed death traps in Mega Man history. It might fall apart a little bit with the final bosses, but by the time you get there you’ll be ready to see the credit screen anyway, so you might not mind."
