Capcom muss gewusst haben, dass Mega Man V das letzte Abenteuer auf dem klassischen Gameboy sein würde, weil sonst ist es kaum zu erklären, wieso die Japaner nochmal so Gas gegeben haben. Für mich ist jedenfalls Teil V der stärkste Ableger der Serie, der dank Super Gameboy Unterstützung auf dem Fernseher gleich noch viel geiler aussieht.

If you don't have a Mega Man game for your Game Boy, this one is a good as any. It's entertaining...it's Mega Man. If you're thinking "rehash", you might be right and it's still a pretty fun game, though.

Mega Man has enjoyed success with it tried-and-true gameplay, but MM V is only for the hardcore Mega Man fans. Anyone else looking for some good side-scrolling action may find this title too tame. If this cart's the last Mega Man for the Game Boy, its a sad tribute to the classic series.

Portable Review
If you're a huge Megaman fan, then by all means, go pick Megaman V up. However, if you're new to the series, don't make this your first pick.

Will the Mega Man series ever end? This latest entry into the never-ending saga has the typical huge levels and formidable bosses with unique powers. There are plenty of weapons and other items and one can't help but wonder how they can keep cranking these Mega Man entries out and maintain such a level of creativity. This one adds a few twists to the Mega Man story. And for a real treat, try using the Super Game Boy peripheral (especially with the opening). Fans of the first four portable entries will appreciate this one.

Mega Man 5 bietet zwar nichts grundlegend Neues, Fans von Capcoms kleinem Wiederholungstäter sollten jedoch ruhigen Gewissens einen Blick riskieren.
