"Good Mega Man Game on the NES"

Mega Man 5 on the NES is a type of game that is a great game for any Mega Man fan can buy. There are some things that is in this game that will keep you going on throughout the game to find out what's going to happen at the end of the game. In this game it seems like Mega Man's brother Protoman has gone mad and sent a team of eight Robot Masters to deal with Mega Man. There are some things that can make this game quite interesting and challenging for the typical Mega Man fan or fans. Let's see how Capcom done on their 5th installment of the Mega Man series on the Nintendo:

GRAPHICS: 9.5/10
The graphics of this game were done quite well and if you really want a Mega Man game with good graphics this is one of those Mega Man games with good graphics to please some of the Mega Man fans. Some people say that graphics don't make a game but good graphics made part of this game good game for the Nintendo.

The difficulty of this game can range from moderate to hard depending on how you interpret the game's difficulty and how you are able to get through the game, but some might find the difficulty a little more easy.

SOUND: 8.7/10
The sound in this game improved from Mega Man 4 and it seems like Capcom had decided to make the sound quality better to be able to make the Mega Man fans be able to enjoy the games again.

PLOT/STORY: 9.0/10
The plot or story didn't seem to change from Mega Man 4 because you have to fight another character but it seems like Protoman is behind all of this. When you play through the game you'll find out more of who's really behind the entire thing.

MUSIC: 8.9/10
The music is probably all right because it seems to suit the Mega Man series but it could've had some improvements to make it better and there are some who might disagree with this.

The replayabilty of this game is fairly decent if you beat the game once and I think that you would enjoy playing through this game again, depending on if you start from the very beginning or use a password to beat it in less time.

OVERALL: 9.3/10
Overall this game is all right for most Mega Man fans but there will be some who would put this game down or most likely bash this game. I find this game to be quite fun and challenging but it seems like that when you go through nearly all of the last stages, you'll find that there are some difficulties of making it through to the end. This game will not disappoint the average gamer because you'll enjoy this game and you'll have a lot of fun playing this game.
