  1. It's like a Greatest Hits collection of the finest, early Mega Man games, and both newbies and old players really need to check it out.
  2. For fans of the Mega Man legacy, this is an absolute must-buy.
  3. The changes implemented are purely optional, leaving the ultimate decision of use to the gamer. And that's exactly how it should be.

    Regardless of whether I was playing the first or eighth game of the series, I found myself so engrossed by the gameplay that it didn't matter if the graphics were eight or a million bits.

    What Mega Man Anniversary lacks in technology and convolution, it more than makes up for in mechanical brilliance, loveable characters, a compelling art direction, and an abundance of robotic charm.

    This is a perfect example of how a compilation should be done. [June 2005, p.88]

    The display method the game uses looks bad and the extras are a bit underwhelming. It's a good collection, but those shortcomings bring it down a bit.
