  1. Six quality titles and one bonus game make for a great collection. But make sure you bring your "A" game because you're going to need it.

    If you can put up with a few outdated cliches, and the occasional irritation, though, this collection has a lot of prime gaming packed onto the disc. [Feb 2006, p.103]

    It's a shame that there aren't as many games on this compilation as there were on the Anniversary Collection ("Mega Man Soccer" really should've been included), but you're still getting some fun games (expect, of course, "Mega Man X6").

    An excellent flashback to old-school gaming in its finest hour. [Feb 2006, p.70]

    All 6 games (and one bonus) still stand as some of the best and most challenging of 2D gaming, starring one of the most revered characters in the gaming universe. [Jan 2006, p.49]

    The games in MMXC are the kinds that will make your wrists hurt and your palms sweat, and I mean that as the highest compliment. [Feb 2006, p.97]
  7. Mega Man X Collection features the triumphs and failures of Capcom's most dynamic duo. It faithfully renders all of the aspects of the games, be it the quality platforming, the tough bosses, or the less savory things like bad level design and ridiculously challenging obstacles.
  8. Having a perfect version of MMX3 is reason alone to spring for this package, so if you're a fan of 2D action, you really can't go wrong with it.
  9. Even though the unlockables are unbelievably light, Mega Man X Collection is a great value.
  10. 75
    Mega Man X Collection is money well spent. X1, X2, and X3 are the best games to show up in a retro set in quite some time. Don't miss them.
  11. This is a fine gathering of the better X games, although X5 and X6 do tend to drag a little. Furthermore, the package isn't as loaded as "Mega Man Anniversary Collection" was.
  12. The controls on the system are as tight and responsive as ever and the action...oh, the sweet action...still delivers.
  13. For those with fond memories of battling Sigma long into the night, this is worth checking out.
  14. 80
    Just 6 very similar games and an unlockable racer.
  15. If you've got the patience and the drive, Mega Man X Collection is a fun title that challenges your gaming skills and gives you a good history lesson in the process.

    Nicely done. All the games seem to be identical to their original versions. Some people may say otherwise... however, I've played most Nicely done. All the games seem to be identical to their original versions. Some people may say otherwise... however, I've played most of these games in the past and they are the same. Gameplay is nice... a little frustrating at times. It definitely brings back a challenge for today's gamers - the kind of challenge that many of today's games can't offer. Bonuses aren't massive, but the games shouyld justify buying the collection. Full Review »

    A megaman collection is, for the most part, something you will definitely buy and something you probably never will. X collection is no A megaman collection is, for the most part, something you will definitely buy and something you probably never will. X collection is no different, and will probably fail to bring in any new fans to the iconic character. This game is shallow, meaning there is very miniscul amounts of extra content worth unlocking, and the 7 games included are nothing spectacular, all extremely similar in gameplay and execution. Simply said, it drowns in megaman, and if your a fan, enough said. With a resonable amount of boredom and extra cash, I would only suggest this title to ones who are willing to except the fact that it offers absolutely nothing revolutionary and new. Its an outdated mesh of mediocre to fun sidescrolling mayhem. Full Review »
