"Alles wie gehabt", könnte man im Grunde als Untertitel zu diesem Test hinzufügen, denn "Mega Man 5" bietet wieder klassisches "Jump and Shoot"-Gameplay, welches man bereits in sehr ähnlicher Form aus den anderen 8-Bit-Vorgängern kennt. Die inhaltlichen "Innovationen", sofern man davon sprechen kann, sind lediglich marginal. Der Spielspaß ist und bleibt trotzdem enorm, wenngleich mittlerweile leichte Abnutzungserscheinungen beim Zocken erkennbar sind und der "humanere" Schwierigkeitsgrad sicherlich nicht bei allen Serien-Fans auf Gegenliebe stoßen wird. Dennoch: Ein intensiver Blick auf diesen durch und durch charmanten Retro-Titel lohnt sich allemal!
Nintendo Life
Mega Man 2 is widely regarded as the best Mega Man title to come out of the NES-era, but it's difficult to not appreciate just how amazing this fifth instalment truly is. The level themes are among some of the best the series has to offer and while some of the robot bosses are a bit cheesy, they're also extremely unique as well. It goes without saying that if you're even the slightest bit a Mega Man fan, this is a game you absolutely must not miss.
Defunct Games
Released a year after the Super NES, Mega Man 5 is the perfect example of Capcom phoning it in. The Blue Bomber is back for yet another formulaic platforming adventure. Instead of jumping to the 16-bit SNES, Capcom decided to stick with the woefully outdated Nintendo Entertainment System. The result is a predictable grind of questionable bosses, cheap level designs and a whole lot of annoying technical problems.
