Released less than a year after Mega Man 4, Mega Man 5 continues the series' tradition of solid gameplay, pitting the eponymous character against his brother Proto Man and his band of eight robot masters: Gravity Man, Stone Man, Charge Man, Crystal Man, Napalm Man, Gyro Man and Star Man. Rush and Fliptop are on hand to help the blue bomber in his quest, as is a new bird-like robot called Beat, who can be obtained by collecting the letters to spell "Mega Man V." The graphics and soundtrack live up to what players have come to expect from the series -- they're some of the best the NES has to offer. ~ Skyler Miller, All Game Guide

I have been a Mega Man lover since the early 90's. I have enjoyed sequel after sequel that the Capcom designers kept producing. To some players, though, it might seem that the same tried-and-true formula was starting to wear off. Now don't get me wrong -- it's STILL a spectacular game from start to finish, but there weren't a lot of new innovations to be had, other than the storyline, cosmetically improved level layouts, or 8 new robots that you have to beat.
The premise is this: 8 new robots are destroying the city, and are led by -- PROTOMAN?! Yep, seems Mega Man's own brother turned against him, but wait -- spoiler alert -- once you beat the 8 robots, you will find out that not everything is at it seems once you face "Protoman" -- he's actually a FAKE Protoman, and it was Dr. Wily who was behind the whole plot (what else is new??).
My personal favorite stages in particular are Charge Man, Stone Man and Wave Man (the BEST music in the entire game is that particular level). I don't like the Gyro Man stage -- the level layout is good but the music is sooooo annoying. Later, once you get to the Dr. Wily levels, it might seem tiring to have to keep defeating his robots, but the awesome music more than makes up for it. Keeps getting better and better every time I have to defeat Dr. Wily!
Having just received the latest issue of Nintendo Power, Mega Man 1 through Mega Man 5 should now be downloadable for the Wii/Nintendo 3DS. Also, please don't forget about Mega Man 1 through 5 for the Gameboy.
