    Mega Man X Legacy Collection is a collection with great historical and playful values. It's not an exclusively thoroughbred collection, but the overall quality remains excellent.

    The classic 2D and 3D platforming games are just as addictive as ever, and the new X Challenges bring a new set of trials for seasoned players to tackle. Newcomers are also welcome with the Rookie Hunter mode, making these collections the definitive way to experience the franchise.

    A great collection of some of the hardest and most enjoyable titles in the past twenty years. The Mega Man X Legacy Collection features plenty of great content not just with the titles included but also the extra content that Capcom have lovingly packed into it.

    A very welcome return for Capcom’s beloved mascot and a hope for a Sonic Mania-esque revival.

    If you are a fan of the Mega Man X series, then this new collection is a great way to own all your favorite games on one console. The X Challenge is a neat little extra, but is probably not worth a purchase for anyone who isn’t coming for the main games themselves.
  7. 70
    It’s undeniably entertaining to explore every level, backtrack for new upgrades, and go toe-to-toe with themed bosses. I miss the save functionality and don’t see the point of having two separate games, but the Mega Man X Legacy Collections are fully worth a play.

    More like 8.5/10 than 9/10

    The Mega Man series, known as Rocketman in Japan, is an iconic 1980s brand such as Pac-Man, Frogger, Q*Bert or Arkanoid, and is almost as old as the Street Fighter series, also by Capcom. Following on from what he did in Street Fighter 30th Anniversary, the Japanese publisher decided to give the same treatment to the Mega Man franchise by making two X series collections.

    Each collection has 4 X series games; collection 1 was with Mega Man X, X2, X3 and X4, while collection 2 was with X5, X6, X7 and X8. Although I don't have much experience in the series, I realize why Mega Man is loved by millions of people. It's from those old games that shows why nostalgic games are fun but difficult, which to me is satisfying.

    Visually they are faithful to originals that have passed on SNES, Sega Saturn, PS1, PS2 and PC, and offer the possibility to change the size of the image, either to 4:3 or fill the entire screen. I being a retro gamer 90s, preferably always opto by 4:3 format. Those who want to, also have some different types of filters available that soften the graphics or emulate a CRT monitor.

    Capcom has made the great decision to put a Museum in the collections that will surely delight the fans as they are completely stuffed with information related to the Mega Man X series. Desde informações sobre as personagens de cada jogo, ilustrações, bandas sonoras, figuras de acção e trailers dos jogos (em japonês ou em Inglês), incluindo até cutscenes (anime) originalmente realizados no jogo Maverick Hunter X. I can not help but admit that Capcom was to be congratulated on this.

    In both collections, we have a mode called Mega Man X Challenge in which we have to face two bosses at the same time, regardless of the boss of the X series. An example of this is Chill Penguin (Mega Man X) with Frost Walrus (Mega Man X4). In any game, if the player experiences difficulties in progressing, it can change the difficulty for Rookie Hunter Mode.

    But I can not fail to mention a strange omission. I don't understand why Capcom didn't put the Mega Man X: Command Mission into these collections to make them even more appealing and complete. Despite this, and even though the X6, X7 and X8 do not look like much compared to the other titles, they have turned out to be two fun and enjoyable collections and sure enough fans of the iconic Mega Man series will be thrilled with the final result.

    Veredict: In short, two good collections for fans of the Mega Man series, which ends up serving as an appetizer for Mega Man 11.
