Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 + 2 - Announcement Trailer
Jul 30, 2018Mega Man X Legacy Collections 1 and 2 are a great set of games featuring the history of X and Zero. While we don’t have any stage challenges like the original Legacy Collections or the ability to rewind or use save states, the new X Challenge mode is definitely a challenge on normal difficulty and even on easy difficulty I enjoyed just whaling on Mavericks with just the X Buster. Overall, fans of the Mega Man X series should enjoy these collections, even more so on the go with the Nintendo Switch.
CD-ActionDec 4, 2018These are mostly unchanged Mega Man X games, but if you haven’t played them yet, you owe it to yourself to catch up on these gems – and Legacy Collection is the best occasion you can get. [10/2018, p.78]
Jul 24, 2018Like the previous legacy collections, this is a mix of some absolute masterpieces, some okay games, and some severe missteps. It's missing some features like save states or a rewind function, and a few songs from the original releases are gone completely. The new X Challenge mode also doesn't stand up to Mega Man Legacy Collection's Custom Challenge stages. Still, this a damn good collection for a series that hasn't seen a new entry in 14 years.
Jul 24, 2018The Mega Man X series has always held a fond place in my heart. To be able to play all eight anytime, anywhere on Nintendo Switch is a dream come true. They may not all be top-tier classics, but the high majority that are maintain the same addictive grip now as they did back in the day. As for these particular collections? They may certainly play as well as I remember them, but the way the celebration has been stripped back like a budget party package made me pine for something a little more extravagant. The legacy of this 30-year-old Capcom mascot certainly deserves it.
Jul 24, 2018Given the vintage nature of the productions, the only element that can be criticized is the price, but it is true that with just under 40 euros you will take home 6 excellent titles, 2 forgettable experiences, an OAV, hundreds of illustrations and hours of exceptional music. An offer that's really not bad!

Jul 30, 2018It's Megaman X, but on switch. That alone should be reason to be excited, but it takes it a step further by giving you the option to one of 3It's Megaman X, but on switch. That alone should be reason to be excited, but it takes it a step further by giving you the option to one of 3 different graphical styles (Classic, 90's crt style, or new and smoothed graphics.), multiple wallpaper options, display settings, achievements, and more. A must have for any fan of Megaman or classic platformers, and the option of rookie mode makes the game a breeze for the new players or those strapped for time. You can even switch between the american and Japanese versions of each title. Only downsides were the fact that they split it into two overpriced purchases, and that they didn't include the Zero or ZX series, though those may get their own collection down the road. Overall a good purchase, if a little pricey.… Expand

This in itself is aThe Mega Man X Legacy Collection is exactly what you expect it to be, upgraded ports of the classic Mega Man X titles.
This in itself is a mixed bag, because you have some absolutely amazing games mixed with some mediocre titles. Other reviewers may complain about the lack of save states, but to them I'd say, "You realize this is Mega Man, don't you?'
Mega Man, as a whole has always expected more of you (for the most part). You are expected to learn the games mechanics through trial and error and implied guidance. For a more in depth explanation on the latter, check out EgoRaptor's Sequelitis on Mega Man X on YouTube.
The awesome SNES era art style of the early X games really pops when playing on the Switch. It translates very well from a traditional console game to hand held.
TL:DR this game is fantastic, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to scratch the X itch that other Mega Man games can't seem to reach.… Expand

There'sAnother solid Mega Man anthology from Capcom, with lots of extra content to supplement the flawless presentation of the X sub-series. There's plenty of challenge for those who want it, as well as a few options to make things easier for newcomers. The first four games (Collection 1) are far superior to the last four (Collection 2), but it's worth having both volumes so you can judge for yourself.… Expand
Jan 29, 2021This collection SUCKS.
It's probably the worst treatment the X series had.

It's probably the worst treatment the X series had.
This Collection has the 8 Mega Man X games, COLLAPSED INTO 2 DISCS. WHY CAPCOM? WHY AREN'T THEY IN A SINGLE GAME?
And the emulation... is the worst.
Mega Man X, X2 and X3 have probably the WORST input lag I've ever seen in a game, and not to mention, the version of Mega Man X3 they included, is the SNES version and not the PSX... why?
Mega Man X4, X5 and X6 have some sounds slightly changed... some sounds are in bad quality and others are just different. This also happens with the music, in X6 for the intro stage theme, they stick with the beta version of the song (the one that doesn't have guitars)
X7 and X8 are the only titles that run great...
Localization: You can play the japanese versions of these games if you want, but forget about WATCHING THE ORIGINAL JAPANESE OPENINGS/ENDINGS for Mega Man X4 to X8, is this a joke? What's the point on having the option to play the Japanese version when it doesn't have its features?
The X Challenge is lame, repetitive and unfair.
This Collection has "The Day of Sigma" and it doesn't even have Maverick Hunter X on it! What's the point on including content from a game that isn't included?
Overall, these two are the worst Mega Man collections...
