    While the graphics tend to be blocky, with lots of texture-warping, the angular shading the artists used is damn cool.
  2. Da Gameboyz
    84
    Although the graphics may not be spectacular, and the sound is less than should be expected, the game more than makes up for it's shortcomings by being undeniably addictive and fun to play.
  3. Like the original Legends, the sequel features an entertaining and overall lighthearted feel, but this time with slightly more serious overtones.
  4. The only major gripe I have is the targeting system. You often have an enemy two feet behind you, but the game refuses to target it since it tends to only target things in front of you.
  5. Daily Radar
    75
    Awful camera control and a dated engine ensure that, as thoroughly enjoyable as Legends 2 is, the series still has a ways to go before equaling the brilliance of its two-dimensional brethren.
  6. This game ultimately rises above average with equal parts charm and challenge, qualities that have been missing from the 2D side-scrolling titles of late.
  7. CNET Gamecenter

    There are about 15 hours of actual gameplay, and about 5 more hours if you want to pick up all the extra goodies along the way. Still, before you know it, you've finished the game.

    This is easily one of my favorites games I've ever played. The Mega Man Legends series on the playstation was easily one of the best theThis is easily one of my favorites games I've ever played. The Mega Man Legends series on the playstation was easily one of the best the system ever saw. However, both games were released toward the end of the Playstations life cycle and that both helped the game be what it was and hindered it from moving forward.
    Mega Man Legends was a 3rd person RPG designed in a brand new Mega Man world that introduced lovable characters like Tron Bonne and her Servbots. It was also one of the first RPG games on the system to include fully voiced characters and cutscenes, doing it a few years before Final Fantasy made it a big deal with FF X. All the voice overs are done exceptionally well. It's a nice touch for an older game like this.
    The gameplay involves alot of platforming and shooting, with some puzzles mixed in. The typcial RPG elements are here too as most of the items you get increase or decrease a stat. There's alot to like here and it's very easy to like this game.
    The main problem is the fact that this game came out after the PS2 was released to little fanfare. Fans of the original game loved it and the game was certainly helped out by being the most polished game on the system. However, the game did not do well with consumers because of the PS2 release the same month. A 3rd entry into the series was quietly cancelled by Capcom a few years later and we haven't heard a word about the series since then, other than a few words by the original series creator, now no longer with Capcom, who expressed interest in reviving the series but knows it will never happen.
    It's a shame that Capcom got rid of the next entry into the series as this game does end on a cliffhanger. It's just a shame, in general, that the series will longer be made. It was easily one of my favorite games on the system and my favorite Mega Man game period. However, with it being released after the PS2 launch, the sales numbers were down and that sealed its fate. But I will take what I can get here and spread the word that this is one of the best games for the PS1 ever and, if you can find them now, buy both of them and play them. You will not regret it.

The best thing about the game at the moment is that it provides a good break from all of the stale current generation of video games. Expand

    It may have it's camera problems, but it's surprisingly good voice acting, interesting characters, and story more than make up for it.
