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.
There's no better way to relive the classics by playing this. By getting this you get 6 megaman games and a whole lot of fun. The music is really good and there's a variety of graphics options to choose from. You can also look at the leader boardsand always make a challenge for yourself. You must have this in your life!!!
Mega Man is a very old game franchise made by Capcom. You play as Mega Man (Rock/Rockman in the japanese version), a robot created by Doctor Light in order to stop the evil Doctor Willy and his army of Robot Masters. It's a platform game where the player must traverse difficult levels and dodge deadly traps. The concept of the series is simple : Each game consists in 8 levels. Each levels is the lair of a Robot Master who have a special power (For instance, Fire Man can shoot fireballs). You must defeat the boss to gain his power then you can go to the next location. What's make it special is that you're free to choose the order in which you complete the levels. It's important because gaining some powers first will make the game a lot easier. For example, if you beat Fire Man, you will be able to use his power against Ice Man, or Cut Man's power can be used to find secret path during some levels etc... Megam Man games are also pretty hard and unforgiving so be prepared to suffer a bit to progress. This collection contains all of the six Mega Man games that were released for the original NES. The games still have their 8-bits look but with a HD filter to make the visual a little prettier. Mega Man Legacy Collection gives you plenty of game time and the Challenge Remix Mode is a great addition to the franchise. Same thing for the replay mode! It's just great to be able to play these games again.
