Leaderboards and video replays – Fans will be able to watch video replays of the top players on the leaderboards, showcasing a whole new generation of Mega Man talent!
I mean, it's good, it's megaman but I would think you'd buy a game you could otherwise emulate or play on inferior hardware so you can play a version of it that it not limited by the technology it's played on. My thought process was obviously incorrect seeing as how it still runs like I'm playing it on my nes with frame drops, flickering textures, and all. I guess it's more nostalgic that way, and keeping those flaws in are integral for the speedrunning community in some cases, but the limitations were not fun then and they're still annoying now. It's a perfect port, for better and worse. Perhaps a like "classic mode" and "modern mode" could have been implemented where classic mode operates as it does now and a modern mode is just, you know, mega man but with the frame drops and other annoyances ironed out that way people that want to play mega man the way they remember can play it that way and the people who think mega man is a great game that is held back a little bit by it's technical issues can play what they concieve to be a superior or definitive version of the game. I'm not a game developer so maybe it's harder to make a game that ran relatively smoothly on 31 year old hardware run completely smoothly on modern systems but if I can fiddle with an emulator for awhile and get my emulated version to run smoothly and not have pop in or frame drops (sometimes at the expense of some cosmetic or non fundamental issues but, it's an emulator and it's hard to make everything perfect) then I'd think it would not be too hard to do the same here at a more polished level. I recommend this not because I recommend this particular product, but because I recommend mega man itself for, despite it's annoyances, being a great game.
Really loyal to the originals, it even has the same "hardware limitations" the original NES version had like framedips, slowdowns and sound channels stopping when you shoot, mimicking the original NES sound hardware with 2A03/2A07. But even though it's cool sometimes, they should add an option to play it just like the Anniversary port, with steady 60FPS and no sound channel pauses - when you're raging (pretty common with this game), it's definetely not cool to be bothered with framedips. I've only played Mega Man 1 until now, but it looks very promising and well ported. It has different screen options like Original 4:3, Full 4:3 and Stretched Wide 16:9 and even some screen filters like TV (which mimicks a very bad TV set IMO) and Monitor (creates scanlines to make it look like 240p). Also, I didn't suffer with the horrible input lag some people are complaining about in the reviews. Actually I haven't noticed any additional input lag at al
this is the only legit chance to play the original megaman games on pc , the price is kinda worth it if you ask me ; includes 6 megaman games , artworks , soundtracks menu and a challenge mode . the games still do have that infamous NES console lag even tho they are being ran on a pc . the legacy collection adds even more features for the games including a save states button and much more . i wish i had more words for this , this takes a 7.5/10 from me.
This is Mega Man. This is Mega Man in his original and unadulterated form. Low pixels, whiny sound effects, beeps and whistles, screen lag and all that. But it is Mega Man. And it is Mega Man in the games that made him the legend he is now. Difficulty and all. This is the best collection of games with Mega Man. I will even go as far as calling it the definitive collection of classic Mega Man. Everything about it is perfect, both for the game collector, or even the casual retro appreciator. If you know Mega Man, then you should not even think twice about getting this. By which I mean you should definitely get this.
Stuttering mess. Really regret purchasing this on GMG now, should have just gotten it on Steam so I could have done a refund. Capcom is covering their butts on the stuttering issues, saying that it's a 'faithful reproduction of the original game'. Well, the originals came out decades ago, the years are long past when stuttering should be acceptable. It's a bit funny how they are so intrested in keeping this flaw in for faithfullness, yet are all the willing to add in HD upscaling which the original games lacked. And timed challenges. And leaderboards. And, well... You get my point, it's a 'faithful reproduction' minus all this stuff that the originals didn't have. Want to make it a faithful reproduction? Go right ahead and remove the stuttering, but add a option to reenable it. I'd bet almost no-one would enable that stuttering. Minus the completely unnecessary stuttering, the collection itself is well done. The addition of timed challenges and a music screen works well to flesh out the game to make is more then just a ported collection of old games. The museum section is a nice touch as well, featuring various artworks and concept arts - And looking closely, you can see how some of the older concepts inspire bosses seen in later games - though the later games have very thin pickings for the concepts section - The early 3 had a lot of boss concepts to look through in the concepts section, though the latter just get 4 stage concepts and nothing for bosses. A bit disappointing really. Overall, I wouldn't really recommend this collection due to the stuttering issues. I've got a copy of the MM artbook, so the museum section is meh for me, and despite the music section being a nice touch there are only a few themes I like to listen to, and I've since downloaded originals and a number of remixes from youtube. Still, for fans of the series or people wanting to play the originals this would be interesting. For others though, I wouldn't recommend it.
