This edition of Nostalgia Game Review takes us on a journey through the world of Mega Man 5. The game lets you play as Mega Man, of course. He tries to take down Proto Man, but the reality is that Dr. Wily is behind all the nefarious deeds (of course). It was released in December 1992 for the NES.
Beat is introduced in this game and is actually a vital part in beating Dr. Wily. Beat will hover around the enemy, pestering it until the enemy dies. You have to collect all eight letters to get Beat, though. Aside from that, the game plays the same as its predecessors.
This is actually a major downside of this game. Introducing Beat as the main change of the game doesn't lend much meat to the game. It just feels like another Mega Man game and an extension of the previous games. It feels like it's a mod, to say the least. Don't get me wrong. I like the game. I'm just disappointed that the game just offers the same stuff as its predecessors.
Still, if you like Mega Man and you love the NES series, this game will be to your liking. However, if you're Mega Man 5 to be more than just another Mega Man game, you will be disappointed.
My life! Food, sports, school. It's what it is!
