In addition to the six Mega Man games, Mega Man Legacy Collection features new ways to experience the classic games with the Museum Mode and new Challenge Mode.

    Mega Man Legacy Collection is an object lesson for how game compilations should be engineered, providing rock-solid adaptation to a new platform, respecting the material’s historic context, and exercising restraint.

    Finding your favorite Mega Man is an invitation to one of gaming's more respectable conversations. Declaring an answer—whether it's fueled by nostalgia, objective truth, or genuine appreciation—is drawing line in a sand, and it's a resolution Mega Man Legacy Collection is designed to facilitate. It's not only how you remember these six games, it's how you want others to see them, too.

    Whether you are a returning fan or looking for an experience similar to Shovel Knight, this collection has a lot to offer. The core gameplay has not lost it’s potency with age. For those looking for old school challenge or experience the definitive version of the early Mega Man classics, look no further than the Mega Man Legacy Collection.

    For both longtime fans of the series and newcomers experiencing the struggle against the nefarious Dr. Wily for the first time, what Capcom have essentially wrought with the Mega Man Legacy Collection is a consummate assembly of the franchise’s 8-bit era outings.

    Mega Man Legacy Collection does not offer anything new, but the old has a new tasty cover. Aside from the disappointment that are the new challenges and achievements, this is an excellent compilation. The old games are presented with care and emulated perfectly. [Oct 2015]

    The new offering from Digital Eclipse is a nice really collection. It will probably be more appreciated by older and nostalgic gamers, but we must recommend it to the younger ones as well, because it represents an important piece of videogame history.

    There's little to tell about this collection, since it is simply that, a collection. It does have some great games, but there aren't any remarkable additions to the original experience.

    A nearly perfect collection. All six games look and sound great, they even nailed the real colours on NES. The game has nice options like a TVA nearly perfect collection. All six games look and sound great, they even nailed the real colours on NES. The game has nice options like a TV filter, borders to fill the screen, the ability to save your game everytime you want and some nice content outside the game, like a bunch of original arts and information about all the characters of every game.

    It doesn´t feel like a money grab at all, is actually a very good collection.

    So, as an avid Mega Fan when I heard about the Mega Man Legacy Collection my reaction was bittersweet to say the least: on one hand mySo, as an avid Mega Fan when I heard about the Mega Man Legacy Collection my reaction was bittersweet to say the least: on one hand my favorite series was getting a new entry, but on the other I thought "Oh yay another bloody re-release of the first couple of games except this has LESS content then the previous collections". But upon playing this collection I must say I'm genuinely impressed the challenges are fun and creative and unique, the art books are a great addition, and the music player does the job well, but none of that matters if the core game has the same problems that the Game Cube collection has. So does it fix those problems?

    Short answer: yes, yes it does. The emulation using the new Eclipse engine is superb, the sound sounds are crisp, the visuals are clean and unlike the collection on Game Cube there is little to no input lag. Also unlike the Game Cube collection this is output into a beautiful 1080p HD signal that looks stellar on modern HD TVs.

    So, is it worth the 14.99 price tag? My answer is a resounding yes it has enough content to keep you playing for months, it looks great, and most of all it PLAYS great. the Mega Man Legacy Collection for PC gets my review of 9.8/10.I might even go so far as to say it's the best way to play the first 6 games in the series. It's a nearly perfect example of why I love this series so much amd is fun for both old fans and new fans alike, my only minor gripe is lack of 4:3 aspect ratio support but this is so minor I feel bad even pointing it out

    Good price and emulation of the first 6 Mega Man classic games, the game still have old bugs (Like Yellow Devil Battle).

    Completely lacks any advanced features included in past collections like Rockman Complete Works for the PS1 and subsequent compilations forCompletely lacks any advanced features included in past collections like Rockman Complete Works for the PS1 and subsequent compilations for PS2 and NGC, a shame, only worth buying with 50% or higher discount, remix mode is not worth much and the museum is the only thing more or less new, the game also lacks a lot of standard options like graphics (the whole legacy flickering option that is now permanent), sound options, no arranged soundtrack, etc.

    Look elsewhere, this is the bare bones experience otherwise.
