    Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 isn’t just a collection of faithful ports on new hardware, it’s a mix of some of the best Mega Man games with plenty of love and goodies. The addition of medals is a great way to encourage players to fully explore every title, and X Challenge is fun, if not disorganized at times. For players new to the Mega Man X series, this is where to begin.

    These four games are more than worth $20 alone. [Issue #35 – September/October 2018, p. 64]

    Mega Man X Legacy Collection is a collection of excellent games. Veterans will relive some of the best adventures of Mega Man, while newcomers will come to know why this series became so important in the history of this industry. Those are obligatory games to anyone that likes platforming games.

    At $20, this is honestly a bargain, especially considering the appeal of the first three titles in particular. In terms of quality, I’d rank them (perhaps unsurprisingly) as such: X, X2, X3, and X4. But they’re all worth experiencing if you’ve never done so before, and with the terrific presentation, true-to-form gameplay, and extensive bonus content, Legacy Collection is certainly the best way to go about it.
  6. Packing four incredible action games from the mid-'90s into one nostalgic package, Mega Man X Legacy Collection might not feature the entire X saga but it's certainly the best of it.
  7. 70
    The first four Mega Man X games are fun nostalgia, though it sometimes feels like a case of deja vu.

Greatly drawn stages and enemies, controls of charging / dashing / jumping greatness, a great rock soundtrack, the most epic 2d boss fights. All elements built up to Jump 'n' Shoot perfection!
    But be warned: some bosses have punishingly strong attacks, you need immense focus to take them down. Luckily a rookie mode (easy mode) is added, which you can turn on and off anytime.
    A lot of galleries with art pieces of the blue bomber's universe complete this explosive package.

On the release of the SNES, Capcom went in a different route: creating a brand new 'Mega Man', with its own modern mechanics. When I pop in that cartridge back in those days, I was mesmerized by its pounding rock soundtrack and great graphics. To this day, the original Mega Man X is still the best Mega Man since no 2. As per usual, its sequels end up presenting somewhat a diminishing set of returns. Yet the first half of this collection, covering X1-X4, is clearly the strongest. The other half, proves to be interesting attempt to go to the 2.5 D route that never really gels with players. However, this is clearly vintage Capcom: back in their glory days. An essential collection for retro gamers such as myself. Expand
