\"Join Mega Man X and Zero as they relive all six of their first Mega Man X adventures! Available for the first time in one incredible compilation, this collection also features the Blue Bomber's action-packed racing game: Mega Man Battle & Chase, never-before-released in the US! Now enjoy a total of seven Mega Man games with remixed soundtracks, original and sketch art, and more!\"
The first collection is an absolute monster and Mega Man X is undeniably the biggest draw. This is a compilation of four of the greatest platformers of all time, and in the case of the original that kicked off the entire X universe, possibly the greatest.
Even with that in mind you can see the desperation in moves like bringing back Vile again, a classic X character that had been retired since X3. The Maverick (boss) roster, which had started to decline ever since X5, is still stuck in a murky mire of unmemorable designs. X8 gets unfairly lumped in with X7, but as a result of this collection it can make its mark on history again.
Additionally, the trophy/achievement lists for the collections have come out, hinting at a secret image for players to find. Almost exactly a year ago, Capcom included an image of what turned out to be concept art of Mega Man 11 inside the Mega Man Legacy Collection, so perhaps they are doing something similar again.
Mega Man X Collection contains seven of the Blue Bomber's games on one disc. Contained in this collection are Mega Man X, Mega Man X2, the enhanced version of Mega Man X3 with anime cutscenes and remixed music, Mega Man X4, Mega Man X5, and Mega Man X6. Each game now features customizable controls as well as the option to save, but Mega Man X 1 to 3 retain their password option as well. The games also feature less slowdown as well as shorter loading times for the later games.
In addition to eight iconic Mega Man X titles, both Mega Man X Legacy Collection and Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 come with an armory of new features. Test your Maverick-hunting skills in the new X Challenge mode, which pits players against two deadly bosses in a series of two-on-one battles. Think you can take down the slippery Chill Penguin and hulking Frost Walrus simultaneously Give it your best shot! Additionally, Mega Man X Legacy Collection includes a huge museum filled with rare production art, catalogs of classic merchandise, a playlist of nostalgic commercials, and more. The collection also includes an animated a prequel film starring the origins of Mega Man X villain, Sigma.
If the collection had been a full physical release I would've picked this up in a heartbeat! I'm a huge megaman fan but I will not pay full price and not be able to play right out of the box. I'm holding out for a megaman complete collection with both original and X in one release.
Awesome, I'm picking up my pre-order from the local Gamestop frist thing in the morning. Looking forward to digging into both collections. Been gaming since '87 but have never played the Mega Man X games aside from a little bit of the original on the SNES Classic.
I'm not trying to insult you or anything, but if you're such a big mega man fan, why is a few minutes of downloading the second part enough to keep you from buying this awesome collection I don't understand why people are so afraid to download games on their Switch, especially when 70% of the good games on Switch are Indies/digital.
For those wanting a complete physical copy, you could pick it up for PS4 or Xbox 1. I was disappointed with the Mega Man Legacy Collection so I'll pass for now. I'm tempted to get it for my Xbox instead of Switch. Capcom has been doing this with a lot of their collection games.
Some of my favourite games of the franchise right here. Guess it's about time I upgrade my old Gamecube compilations to this one. Again (e)TANK YOU SO VERY MUCH Capcom for once more deciding to skip the physical retail of this in Europe, forcing me to import the game from America and making it cost me (Mega Man) X3 the regular price of the digital collection.
After more than a decade of neglect, Capcom has finally brought the Mega Man X series out of hibernation in the best way possible, with a collection of all eight games in the mainline series. But while Mega Man fans will no doubt be thrilled to have this collection for modern consoles, there are still a few odd design choices and omissions that hold this compilation back from being definitive.
I will also mention that the Mega Man X Challenge is similar between both Legacy Collections. The third level of each stage is different between the two collections, but the first two stages are the same (same location, same bosses). A bit disappointing but overall acceptable.
But the collection is flawed. The lack of 4k, the broken steam overlay, (Again remove it Capcom, or fix it), the fact that the fullscreen may still break these games (I think I still see a problem though it has been improved, it was broken at launch.) I find it hard to give it top marks.
I also just feel that while Mega Man X Challenge is a nice addition, the fact it uses the same layout for the two collections, and 2/3rds of the same stages are lazy. I would have loved a new and innovated system, and while Mega Man X Challenge is most of that, I just feel they could have gone a bit farther.
Worse, perhaps, is a bug that, as of press time, often tanks the game's frame rate when you tell either volume to run in pure fullscreen mode as opposed to \"borderless fullscreen.\" This issue is hard to reproduce in the superior Volume One collection, at least, but it did crop up in both volumes.
Not included, however, are the thoroughly decent Mega Man Xtreme 1 and 2 Game Boy Color spin-offs, or the inventive RPG Mega Man X Command Mission. Maybe Capcom is saving them for a future collection, but while we were indulging our Mega Man X nostalgia, it would have been nice to have access to the whole series.
Hot off the heels of the re-release of the Mega Man Legacy Collection for Nintendo Switch, Capcom brings every Mega Man X title to consoles in their own collection. And like it's predecessor, Mega Man X Legacy Collection is a Mega Man X fan's dream. It's filled with extras, historical content and bonus modes that give a lot more gameplay than what's found in the original titles.
And, of course, the difficulty level of these games can be challenging if not infuriating at times. Pinpoint jumps and dashes are necessary in many of the stages you'll play through, while many of the boss fights are some of the hardest you'll ever experience. There's a reason why Capcom put an easy mode in this collection. The Rookie Hunter mode scales back difficulty for less experienced players or those having trouble defeating a particular boss or level. Capcom allows for the easy mode to be activated in the middle of a level without having to restart, a nice touch.
A big perk of purchasing Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2 is the historical content. Both collections offer the soundtracks for each game, which are some of the best in video game history, and a detailed look at other products sold at the time of each game's release. From plushies to action figures to shirts and trading cards, the product gallery is a great look at how fans consumed the Mega Man X series. The Gallery offers concept art sketches, official game art and detailed information on the various characters, bosses and the story.
Capcom put out a great title when they released the Mega Man Legacy Collection , but the Mega Man X Legacy Collection is more polished, filled with so much content that everyone should experience it (even though it doesn't have as many titles.) The added X Challenge feature and all the videos and galleries included in the Museum really makes the collection worthwhile.
Mega Man X, the gold standard for rock solid, fast paced dashing and crashing action, is back again in what seems like the property's hundredth re-release. This time, however, it's available across two collections with all eight entries in the mainline Mega Man X series.
If this review hasn't convinced you to dash back in and get reacquainted with Mega Man X, allow us to state it plainly: Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2 are must- plays for fans. With its new features, galleries, and tweaks, even total newcomers who have never experienced this groundbreaking series will feel welcome. A lot of love and care has been poured into this collection, allowing players of all skill levels to jump right in and enjoy. So get out there, dash and blast, and track down those mavericks, hunter. 781b155fdc
