    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.

    While the two Legacy Collections compliment each other like crackers and cheese, Mega Man Legacy Collection is easily the more streamlined. It feels like the more complete package due to all six games being originally released on the same console. It also contains that hook of nostalgia that’s far more familiar with the mass fanbase of the NES era. What was the biggest deal maker for me was easily the Turbo Mode, a feature heavily missed on other console versions.

    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!

    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.

    It still is a decent collection of one of the most difficult game franchises of the NES era.

    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.

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
