Product Description

Mega Man V, known as Rockman World 5 in Japan, is a video game developed and published by Capcom for the Game Boy handheld game console. It is the fifth and final game in the Game Boy version of the original Mega Man series. The game follows the adventures of the protagonist Mega Man as he must defend the Earth from a group of powerful robots from outer space called the "Stardroids". Mega Man V was also unique from the previous Game Boy Mega Man games as it features original and unique bosses rather than recycling those from the original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) Mega Man games. Mega Man V is an action platformer in which the player selects stages in a non-linear fashion and acquires the weapon of each boss defeated to use as their own. Although, the game plays nearly identical to any other games in the series, the game substitutes Mega Man's trademark "Mega Buster" weapon with a powerful "Mega Arm" which sends Mega Man's own fist like a rocket and introduces Tango, a new assistant character. Mega Man V received an average to positive critical reception.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game!!!! A must-have for any MegaMan Fan!!! May 10, 2003
By Sol
When I saw MegaMan V in the used section at my local gaming store, I almost wet my pants. You almost NEVER see a game THAT rare in a used section of a game store, so i bought it as fast as I could. Anyway, lemme get to the point. MegaMan V is one of the best MegaMan games ever. The graphics and sound is great, controls are easy to learn, the story is cool, and better yet, the bosses aren't reruns! (MegaMan V features the Stardroids, mysterious robots from space). Now MegaMan's Mega-Buster is replaced by the powerful new Mega-Arm, an arm that fires and punches the enemy. The only drawback to MegaMan V is that it's kinda easy and isn't that long, but an awsome game none the less! Get it today!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best, and Rarest, for the Game Boy September 1, 2001
By A Customer
Megaman V is, at the time of this writing, the last of the original series Megaman games to appear on the Game Boy. It's also one of the best in the whole series.
The plot revolves around the arrival of strange humanoid robots from outer space, called the Stardroids. Megaman attempts to take them down, but finds his weapons to be useless against their armor. Fortunately, Dr. Light creates a Mega Arm adaptor for Megaman that can penetrate the Stardroid armor. Megaman then goes off to defeat the eight Stardroids and their leader, Terra.
Part of what makes this game so fun is how it deviates from the original NES titles. They came up with eight entirely new bosses and levels for this one. Each Stardroid is named after a planet and is equipped with a weapon that Megaman receives after defeating them.
The graphics in this title are amazing for the Game Boy, their sharpness rivaling the best NES games. There is some slowdown when there are a lot of sprites at once, however.
The music is good and all of the tunes are new. The sound effects are the same as in previous Megaman Game Boy titles.
Gameplay is in the same side-scrolling action that's in the majority of Megaman games. You must guide Megaman through eight Stardroid levels that stretch in all directions and are loaded with robotic perils before going after their leader in a series of additional levels. The main difference between Megaman V and previous Game Boy Megaman titles is the fact that Megaman shoots his fist off at enemies (the Mega Arm). This is unlike the Mega Buster in the earlier games, which basically just produced a really large projectile. Although the fist automatically returns back, it makes for a brief delay wherein you cannot fire. You get used to it easily, though.
Overall, this game is worth finding for serious Megaman game collectors. Fans of side-scroller games will love it. And if you're expecting Dr. Wily to be the final boss, you might be surprised...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Finest Portable Mega Man you can Find December 17, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Mega Man V comes a bit out of the blue if you've played the previous Game Boy instalments. Instead of giving us half of the NES version like the previous titles did, Capcom treated us to a brand new and strong game. Mega Man kisses goodbye to his Mega Buster to make room for the "Mega Arm" - a quite useful weapon in the form of Mega Man's fist, which he can use to attack enemies. With upgrades, it can grab items or even enemies. You can only choose from four bosses to begin with - but then, that's standard for the series on this machine. Indeed, Mega Man V carries on some features but changes others.

Released in 1994, one year after Mega Man X for the SNES, Mega Man V carries on the flair for dramatics introduced there. The game starts with a strong cut-scene where Mega Man faces off against an alien robot called Terra. To his dismay, Mega Man's weapons have no effect on his attacker. Shortly afterwards, more alien robots - called Stardroids - attack the Earth. What to do? Dr Light gives Mega Man the aforementioned Mega Arm and our blue protagonist goes off to stop the troublemakers.

Certain features are carried on from the previous Game Boy Mega Man games. The first and most prominent is the P-chip system. You are guaranteed a pick-up when you destroy an enemy in this game, whether in the form of power-ups or P-chips. You can find more of the latter scattered across the levels as well, sometimes in tricky locations. Collect enough P-chips and take them to Dr Light's lab to exchange them for power-ups. I would recommend that you first save them up to buy the two upgrades for your Mega Arm, which allow you to pick up items from a distance and to grab enemies, thereby inflicting more damage.
