    Mega Man Legacy Collection is a seriously comprehensive celebration of the classic NES series, with a total of six games and a healthy sprinkling of brand new challenges. The dip in quality in the latter titles hold it back from a perfect score, but this is otherwise an essential purchase!

    The Mega Man Legacy Collection on the Switch is the best I’ve played yet. With extra challenges, a rewind feature and some of the best emulation of the Nintendo Entertainment System I’ve seen. This is a must-have collection for sure.

    Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 is a good compilation and have a nice number of content. I recommend to any fan of platform games. It is a game with enough content to guarantee fun for a very long time.

If you’ve played those games as a child and liked them, this will be exactly what you expect. There’s even a TV mode that makes it look like on an old CRT TV, and a setting that emulates the slowdown that would occur in the original games when there were too many sprites on the screen. The collection is also packed with bonus content, so all in all, for this price, this is a steal. Expand

    Top TOP game. For Mega Man experts, it's a very easy stroll down memory lane.

    For newbies, this is a BRUTAL collection of games that spits on Dark Souls (seriously). The first Mega Man title will make you lose your damn mind. But I've played it roughly 500 times so it's a breeze for the experts as I say.

    There is also a 'turbo' mode that negates slowdown (mainly from Mega Man 1 + 3) and it really adds a lot to the gameplay. No longer can you 'cheat' through hard sections as the game slows down to a crawl.

    Regardless, it's great value for money. Six brilliant games, wonderful concept art/promotional stuff and challenges. There is a lot of value here. Get it.

    A truly amazing and fun collection, however the time reverse option makes the games much easier than originally intended.

    One of the first games I ever bought was Rockman 3 for my Nintendo Famicom, back when I was a kid (and living in Japan)... I love the originalOne of the first games I ever bought was Rockman 3 for my Nintendo Famicom, back when I was a kid (and living in Japan)... I love the original games but I haven't played through most of the series. So, I was super excited to try this out.

    The games I owned when I was a kid stand the test of time. I only had Rockman 2 and Rockman 3 on Famicom. They're still great games. But, the other entries in the series aren't so much fun (for me). At first I thought this was just nostalgia, but it appears that 2 and 3 are the best Rockman / Mega Man games according to pretty much everyone.

    The yellow devil in the first game is too hard. I had the Gameboy version back in the 90s and I managed to beat it somehow, but - these days with so many other games to chose from - I couldn't be bothered slogging through it... Even with the rewind function.

    I never played any of the games in the core series after number 3.

    Unfortunately, this is a series (like the Bomberman and Worms franchises) that doesn't improve upon itself. There are always eight stages, each with their own boss, followed by a long Dr. Wily stage where you (typically) have to take on all 8 bosses again without dying...

    The level design and boss design don't motivate me to keep playing. They cut and paste stuff from game to game. The weapons you inherit from each boss also are cut and pasted. The latter games, particularly, really lack originality.

    This is a great compilation of a mediocre series... Playing through 10 Mega Man games gets pretty boring, because they're basically all the same.

    The Mario series re-invented itself constantly. There is a big leap from Super Mario Bros to Super Mario Bros 3 and a big leap from 3 to Super Mario World. Followed by an huge leap from World to Yoshi's Island and an enormous jump from Yoshi's Island to Mario 64... etc... etc...

    Mega Man is like the Call of Duty series. They just kept churning out clones of the original game, until people didn't want to play them anymore... They weren't trying to improve the formula. They didn't bother to come up with new ideas, because they didn't care about anything but money.

    I'm just going to sell this and move on.

    I can't give it a bad score, because (like I said) it's a great compilation. The music is great. The bonus challenges are well designed... And, it's good value at about AUD$5 per game.
