    Really fun game but very poor presentation quality.

    Megaman X5 introduced a few new ideas for game play, the game is certainly fun and long lasting, and if you are a fan you are going to love the story, however Capcom completely stripped down productio...

    You want alot action. You want fast gameplay. Then this is the perfect game for you it may have 2D graphics but it's fun

    Rated on August 09, 2006 by bigmouthkid

    Mega man X5 is a very fast action game with tons of powers and upgrades for either Megaman or Zero which ever one you choose. The theme music is great and you can choose a difficulty level to play. So...

    The X game that was released many years after X4 and yet it's not as good. But still good.

    Rated on January 31, 2006 by TAMKFan

    This is a pretty decent and underrated game. I wonder why their was a huge release time gap between this and X4? This game has most features X4 had but no cutscenes which a bit of a letdown. Character...

    Mega Man X5 would have been a great ending to the X Series, if this was the final game in the series.

    Once again, Capcom has pumped out a Mega Man X game, and it's one of the best in the series.

    Rated on January 14, 2010 by psychoyoshi2009

    Mega Man X has been a great gaming series since 1993, and while the first game was incredible, a few games didn't live up to standards. Then Capcom threw us X4 a few years later and blew me away. I th...

    While this game does stay more true to megaman x than x4, it still feels loose and pushed.

    Rated on August 11, 2006 by theheavydrinker

    Megaman x4 was a disaster. I'm not saying I didn't appreciate the game, but the move to psx was very bumpy for megaman. Megaman 8 was a complete bomb of a game, and x4, although better, was too far aw...

    Megaman X5 delivers a challenging game to play, with armors to unlock, as you take Zero and Megaman through this game...

    Megaman X5 is similar to the previous Megaman X games, with new features. You can either take Megaman [X] or Zero through the game. Zero uses his saber, while X uses his original blaster thingy O.o Ze...
