De l'action à fond les manettes. Si vous aimez la série des Mega Man, celui-ci ne vous décevra pas.
Overall, even though the series' format is clearly seeing far too many repetitions of itself, this game still is a bit of a jump over Mega Man 4 in terms of general quality. Music and graphics have seen somewhat of an upgrade, although that's pretty much where the line can be drawn. If you've been a fan of the first four games, Mega Man 5 will not disappoint you.

Le savoir faire de Capcom montre qu'il est toujours possible de surprendre même au bout du cinquième épisode. Avec des graphismes toujours plus poussés, une maniabilité toujours aussi bien ficelée, une bande-son désormais mythique et une durée de vie mieux dosée, Mega Man 5 est sans aucun doute un très bon jeu. Sans toutefois égaler le cultissime Mega Man 2, il reste un titre à déguster pleinement. Après tout, c'est dans les veilles consoles que l'on fait les meilleurs jeux.

Mega Man 5 features some really cool weapons like one that generates a wave of water and another that reverses gravity so enemies fall off the screen. The game is tricky but the driving 8-bit tunes will keep you forging ahead. A well-rounded platform-shooter, Mega Man 5 is pretty much everything a fan could ask for.

Mega Man está de volta. No futuro o exército dos robôs começa a destruir o mundo. Mega Man e os outros robôs criados pelo Dr. Light tentarão impedir este absurdo.
The game is markedly easier and less frustrating than the first four titles in the series, making it ideal for those new to the technically great franchise.

‘’Never Change a Winningteam’’ heißt die alljährliche Parole von Capcom und der bleiben sie auch im fünften Ableger ihrer Sache treu. Der Schwierigkeitsgrad, der bekannte Dudelsound und der unverkennbare und motivierende Rätsel der Marke ’’Welcher Endgegner ist verwundbar gegen welche Waffe?’’ gehören schon zur Tradition des kleinen blauen Roboter und vermögen immer noch für einige Zeit zu begeistern. Leider sind die Innovationen von Capcoms Jump’n´Run Orgie aber sehr dünn gesät und so lässt sich trotz zweier neuer Gimmicks (Arrow und Beat) nur schwerlich darüber hinwegsehen, dass das Thema so langsam ausgenudelt ist. Unterm Strich bleibt also ein bekanntes und gutes Konzept, was aber sehr laut danach schreit endlich mal umgekrempelt zu werden.
All new bosses with all new weapons await, and I can't wait to stop reviewing it so I can play!
This game isn’t particularly long at sixteen levels, and there are password saves until you get to the point where you’re going after Protoman, but the game is still fun and is well worth replaying. I would, however, caution anybody considering buying this game that it is rare and thus would be slightly expensive. I would recommend buying Mega Man Anniversary Collection for GCN or PS2 and playing the entire series if this game sounds interesting to you.

Mega Man 5 is short on new ideas but doesn’t need them. What it lacks in innovation it more than makes up for with solid execution. It isn’t as polished as 2 or 3 but is only a step below in my opinion.
Måske var det på tide at ændre lidt på udfomingen, så der var et par reele nyskabelser i spillene.

Mega Man V is the first entry in the Original Six that feels completely phoned-in. It’s impossible to think that Capcom forgot how to develop Mega Man games properly, given the series’ unprecedented amount of quickly generated sequels, but how else does one explain this mess of an entry? Mega Man V may look, sound, and play like Mega Man, but it doesn’t feel like Mega Man. The first three entries were created with passion, and without that, the character may as well be in a cryogenic chamber waiting until an adventure worthy of his name comes along to rouse him. Let’s hope his NES swansong will do the trick.

Either I got extremely good at playing Mega Man games after ten hours, or Mega Man 5 is distinctly shorter and easier than Mega Man 4. Um...yeah. Is that a good thing, or a bad thing? I leave the choice up to you, because quite honestly, I forget.
