The Good: Great story, different characters are awesome, nice graphics, fast and fun gameplay
The Bad: Nothing new for Mega Man vets, no multiplayer, some missions can just be out right unfair
I’ve never played a Mega Man game before plain and simple. Why you ask? Because I just couldn’t get into the series. After finally picking up X5 up, mainly because it’s the best out of the X series, I really like MM now. X5 has a great story and great level design along with quick fast gameplay. You have to rebuild an old gun ship and mega weapon to destroy a meteor heading for your planet. To rebuild these things you have to beat different Mavericks who have each part.
Now some levels are just insanely difficult like one level in which you’re on a speedster and it goes so fast the who level is just pure trial and error. Of course, if you’re an MM vet then this game may not be so impressive to you but for me it was. I love this game and it’s one of my favorite platformers of all time.
