    Legacy Collection 2 is a roller coaster of emotions. Only about one and a half of the games in the box are actually good, but it will also complete the X series and fulfill hardcore fans. If you don’t care about any of that, save the $20 and just get the first collection. Or, buy collection 2 and laugh at X7 with your friends.

    Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2 brings the remaining four games of the Mega Man X series under one collection and the new game modes and extras are sure to please the fans of the series. However it's also wroth mentioning that the latter four titles carrying the Mega Man X name also mark the series' quality descent and that this collection only allows one save option per game.

    Only X8 makes Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2 worthy of serious consideration. [Issue #35 – September/October 2018, p. 65]

    Ultimately, Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2 is only worth buying if you really love the X series formula and are willing to experience it in bizarre and inferior forms. Mega Man X8 is the singular high-quality X title to be had here, so you have to ask yourself if X8 plus three not-so-terrific titles is worth your $19.99. I love Mega Man in all his forms, so it’s worth it for me. But for you? Maybe not.

    X Legacy Collection 2 is just okay. X5 and X6 look great and provide fun platforming, though both fall victim to uninspiring stories and a lot of dialogue. X7 should be commended for trying to change things up, but the switch to 3D falls flat. X8 is much more polished and is probably the best title in the collection. The collection overall is probably best for those that are nostalgic for the PlayStation 1 and 2 era Mega Man games; otherwise, there are much better platformers around on the Switch with better variety.

    It's difficult to recommend Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2 since it's so wildly inconsistent in its quality. What is essentially being offered is one game that's decent (albeit unmemorable), one that's sometimes great, and then two that are complete trainwrecks. That said, Mega Man X5 and Mega Man X8 are worth playing through as they're still fairly enjoyable in their own right. Otherwise, though, there's not much reason to check this out.

    Playing Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2 makes us wonder why Capcom split the Mega Man X series in two. With the same bonus as the first compilation, you are left with episodes X5 to X8, which carry the license with them into an abyss of torpor. Why would you get this second part? We do not know either.

    The second installment into the Mega man x series, unfortunately not as good as part 1.
    The game comes with a bunch of additional features
    The second installment into the Mega man x series, unfortunately not as good as part 1.
    The game comes with a bunch of additional features such as the gallery and music (OST) which are really enjoyable for hardcore fans. Also a rookie hunter mode which really helps out people new to the series or assists you when getting through very difficult situations or bosses.
    X5 - a fantastic game which kept in good tradition to X4, fair difficulty, only downside is that there is a lot of back tracking if you want to collect everything. 9.5/10
    X6 - by far the most difficult and broken of the X games. Level design is lazy at times requiring certain items to progress and boss battles that I couldn't beat without using rookie mode. 5/10
    X7 - a very poor attempt to change into 3D, game feels rushed in so many aspects from level design to voice overs. Could be the worst in the series. 4/10
    X8 - a redemption from the previous 2 games, with better platforming and boss battles. Much more playable and the voice acting and story were done quite well 8/10
    Overall you could skip out on X6 and X7 and you wouldn't miss out on much, also avoid the frustration they bring. 7/10

    The first Mega Man X Legacy Collection is amazing, but the second is pretty disappointing. I love experiencing the past but Mega Man X7 is aThe first Mega Man X Legacy Collection is amazing, but the second is pretty disappointing. I love experiencing the past but Mega Man X7 is a terrible, glitchy mess and Mega Man X8 is pretty mediocre in my opinion. Mega Man X5 and X6 are actually pretty great games. They have awesome tracks, level design, and I haven't encountered any bugs while playing them. The hub is great and I love the gallery. It's a great way to learn Mega Man history. The battle mode is really fun and I love fighting 2 bosses at once. Overall, this is an okay legacy collection, but only Mega Man X5 and X6 are truly worth playing. Have a lovely day/night, folks!
