Mega Man X5 Review


What is Mega Man X5?

Mega Man X5 is the fifth installment in the Mega Man X series. It is a 2D action platformer where you battle enemies (Shoot or slash) while navigating through stages to fight a boss at the end of each stage. Like the other Mega Man games, you can select which stage to play in any order you want. As X or Zero, you must battle your way through 8 stages to gather the parts necessary to defend Earth against an impending disaster. The amount of tries you take to complete the 8 stages determines the outcome of the game's story. Mega Man X5 is a PlayStation 1 game. You can also play it on PlayStation 2 as part of the Mega Man X Collection and recently it has additionally been released on PSN for you to play on the PlayStation Portable, PlayStation Vita or PlayStation 3.

Who made it?

Mega Man X5 was made by CAPCOM, a Japanese company. CAPCOM also made Resident Evil, Devil May Cry, Street Fighter, Ghost and Goblins, Okami, Viewtiful Joe, Breath of Fire, Strider, Bionic Commando, etc. CAPCOM is a good company for action games which require quick reflexes and often releases games with iconic characters. CAPCOM has been notorious recently for releasing multiple versions of the same games (Mostly Street Fighter) as well as getting you to buy a lot of DLC that is locked from the game you bought. Be careful about that. CAPCOM has also been recently known for changing a few established franchises in a controversial way and for cancelling all new Mega Man games it had in production.
