  • Summary: Join Mega Man X and Zero as they relive all six of their first Mega Man X adventures. Available for the first time in one incredible compilation, this collection also features the first US release of the Blue Bomber’s action-packed racing game: "Mega Man Battle & Chase." Now, enjoy a total of seven Mega Man games with remixed soundtracks, original and sketch art, plus, so many other cool features. [Capcom] Expand

  1. They look, sound and feel just like the originals.
  2. 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]
  3. A rare example of a perfectly done retro collection. [Feb 2006, p.82]
  4. Mega Man X Collection follows the same basic formula as Capcom's excellent first Mega Man compilation, but it just doesn't have quite as much to offer.
  5. Capcom compiled their best X adventures into one disc, and it's a sweet deal for fan wanting to relive those classic Mega Man moments.

    Unless you really, really like the franchise, this collection will do nothing whatsoever for you -- it's six largely identical games of varying quality. For those who can't get enough of that robo-rock/paper/scissors action, the exceptional quality of these ports (and the promise of a "new" spin-off) should be more than enough to offset the repetition.
  7. You have to be a huge Mega Man nut if you want to get these games--especially since many of them are newer than the games released in the original Mega Man collection, meaning that all-important element of nostalgia just isn't quite there.

    The X series is what really made the Megaman Series great, notably X1-X3. X2 and X3 sell for Mega bucks on ebay, too. X4-X6 are almost as good. Great music is another cool thing. Expand

    Mega Man X 1 alone is good enough to sell this- everything about the game was fantastic, both brilliantly innovative and intuitive, while keeping everything that made Mega Man 2 so awesome years earlier. Expand
