  • Summary: The 4 Mega Man Zero titles have been brought to and optimized for the DS.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 11 out of 15

  1. If you're still rocking a DS Lite and own all four GBA games already, then you might not need this collection, but if you missed even one of the Zero games in the past, you're sure to get your $30 worth.
  2. If you missed any of these games the first time around, this is the perfect chance to grab the lot of 'em. [July 2010, p.86]
  3. A classic, which includes all 4 Megaman games from between 2002 and 2005. Great port, despite the outdated gameplay.
  4. 80
    But if you're a fan and you missed even one of these games the first time around, invest in Mega Man Zero Collection right away -- Zero needs to finish his fight, and he's waiting for you to wake him up.
  5. Four great games, probably some of the best entries on MegaMan's series. Unfortunately, it lacks some kind of extras and it's just an emulation that doesn't even expand to the whole size of the DS screen. It's a shame, but the games are so good nonetheless, that this Collection is worth it even so.
  6. At the end of the day, the Mega Man Zero Collection is a functional compilation that will please the hardest of hardcore Mega Man fans.
  7. 60
    While it makes the games a cakewalk for Mega Man veterans, it allows you to appreciate Zero 1-4 as pure action games. That the collection allows us to revisit the series free of its excesses makes it well worth your time.

    When I beat Mega Man Zero, I was crazing for more. When I saw this, I NEEDED it. 4 games in one cards? Unbeatable! For $30 you get four meaty games with nonstop action and incredible boss encounters. Expand

    i really like this series, not as much as Mega Man X, but it's way up there. It had a great story and amazing gameplay, and pretty much amazing everything! The only problem i have with this is that Capcom didnt implement this onto the DS very well, they still only use 2 (A and B) buttons instead of allowing you to use all 4 of the buttons that the DS has.

    As a new comer to the Mega Man Zero Subseries (I usually just stick to Classic, X and BN/SF subseries) I decided to pick this game up as it had four games in one and I was a major fan of the brutal difficulty of the Mega Man X subseries and fans where severely hyped for this compilation so I decided to give it a go. The game feels rather similar to the X series due to being a storyline sequel to that subseries but with a larger amount of gimmick weapons and tools, some which mastering is mandatory for being able to progress and the use of certain others are optional. There is a notable lack of english voice acting (japanese with english subtitles in the english version) which can be a plus or minus depending on the type of person you are. Each game has a unique feel and its own unique qualities while still remaining fairly similar in design. The brutal difficulty is back in full force so much so that a "Beginner Mode" was introduced into this compilation just so new comers could even stand a chance completing the games. The music is beautiful and the level design and bosses are rather creative. Story quality varies depending on the game, earlier games being weaker and the later ones begin stronger. The controls feels extremely awkward for me on the DS however and thats a major complaint of mine, especially with difficulty requiring as much precision as possible. Quality of the emulations/ports could be slightly better as well. If you are a major Mega Man/Rockman fan this is the game for you, also try out if you are interested in difficult shooter/platformer hybrids. The difficulty and awkward controls might turn some people off though. Expand
