    Young gamers will probably be alienated by the extreme retro look and the high difficulty of these games, but they are precious pieces of gaming history that should be added in every retro-loving gamers collection.

    Despite a few bugs and sound glitches, Mega Man Legacy Collection is an outstanding compilation of some of the best platform games in history.

    A great starter kit history lesson for a beloved platforming franchise. Be warned that it is a very tough and often frustrating lesson, but that it does have its rewards.

    All in all, the Mega Man Legacy Collection has just enough toss-ins and challenges to make it worthwhile, while not messing with the highly-successful formula that formed the foundation of this long-standing franchise.

    If you want to relive your memories as a kid or just want to see how Mega Man got his start, then Mega Man Legacy Collection is an easy recommendation.

    Mega Man Legacy Collection feels incomplete. It doesn’t feature any of the games that launched after the heyday of the NES era and even then brings them to modern systems with performance warts and all. Yet somehow with the six games it does bring to the table, it provides enough for fans to indulge in with challenges and archive artwork, while also bringing in new players with conveniences such as the save system.

    Mega Man Legacy Collection is not the best compilation of classics released, but it’s definitely not the worst. Worth a download if you are a fan.

It is the original games from the original code, with the original bugs. Which means it also has the original exploits and codes. If your a true Megaman fan and want the game from back in the day on your new console, this is perfect for you.

    Don't be fooled by the negative ratings. 5 of the 6 negative reviews come from the same 2 people. Apparently they bought it for the PS4, then went and bought it on the PS4. Then one of them bought it for the PC and surprisingly hated it there also. That's assuming they bought it at all.

    Also the negative reviews fall into 3 areas, based on unrealistic expectations. Some wanted the 10 bit games. Which they knew weren't coming in this collection. But might come as a DLC if this does well. The other admitted there were small timing issues only a hardcore Megaman Savant would notice. And then there is the Mixed reviews that wanted the game to be updated for today's gamers. Which would be a waste of Capcom's time and resources. Since the original maker of Megaman made "Mighty #9" which is launching next month and is basically a modernized Megaman.

    Another positive review stating to ignore the negative reviews. I own these games on NES and have played 3 of the 6 as recently as last week.Another positive review stating to ignore the negative reviews. I own these games on NES and have played 3 of the 6 as recently as last week. This collection is as faithful of a recreation as I have come across for any game. Yes, you MAY POSSIBLY MIGHT notice some visual glitches and timing issues but 99.99% of you won't (I didn't and I am an AVID fan). One person stated that it doesn't come with a sound track or art work...which it 100% does...even old mockups and **** I've never seen before.

    Further, it is $15 for 6 games. You can't buy them on NES for that. You can't buy MegaMan 2 on NES for double that in good condition.

    10/10 would buy again and would have paid more for it.

    It is great because it is freaking MEGA MAN! If you like Mega Man and want to have the 6 original games from the NES on your PS4 then thisIt is great because it is freaking MEGA MAN! If you like Mega Man and want to have the 6 original games from the NES on your PS4 then this game is fro you! That is why I purchased it. The Challenges add hours of gameplay and challenge as you try to race to the finish under a certain time limit. The challenges also present playing mega man in a completely new way by throwing you into multiple Mega Man games one after the other. I personally enjoy every Mega Man game, only problem is why not include more MEGA MAN GAMES! 9 and 10 would have been great. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Great Game, with smart uses of the music and nice extras. But why couldn't we unlock everything once we beat the game? it would take much less time. Expand

    The new challenge mode is really fun to waste a couple of hours on.
    You have several option on how you want it displayed. Old stlye TV or monitor. 4.3 or widescreen.
    You are also able to save you game at any point so if you have a difficlut time in a particular part of the map you can kinda abuse it.

    People complaining about it beeing played just like a 8bit game or a ROM but that because that what the creators of the Collection wanted. All glitches and lags are still in the game and its awesome, its just like you are back in the late 80 or early 90 again =).

    If you like retro gaming this is for you, if you are a whiny resolution FPS biatch dont bother buying the game.

    Solid 8/10

    Mega Man is an incredibly annoying franchise because they make it intentionally difficult and that just makes people want it even more. It'sMega Man is an incredibly annoying franchise because they make it intentionally difficult and that just makes people want it even more. It's sadistic. They could very easily add a mode for newcomers, with less damage and more lives, but they keep up with this insane and punishing formula. Expand
