Especially next to the first Mega Man Legacy Collection's six games and nicer save system, The Mega Man Legacy Collection 2's package of four included games is ultimately a step backward. While the games are mostly good, none of them top Mega Man 2 or 3 -- and for the record, I think 3 is the best. 8, 9, and 10 are worth revisiting for a dose of retro platforming challenge, but know what you're up against going in.

Capcom collects the Blue Bomber's post-NES career into another handy, albeit somewhat lackluster, Mega Man Legacy Collection.

Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 gathers up four great Mega Man games that are otherwise hard to find and play. However, Capcom's stitched-together presentation for the titles and lack of extra options leaves a lot to be desired in this post-Digital Eclipse world.

Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 is worth it for 9 alone, but you'll also get to experience several legacy games that were passed by. I'm still holding water for 8 all these years later, and due to some amazingly camp artwork and stellar animations, it's one of the most "showable" Mega Man games to date. I think a lot of people are going to be pleasantly surprised by it, as well as the near flawlessness of 9 -- even if 7 and 10 are just as wart-filled as they always were.

I did like going back through the four games on offer with Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 overall. The features included are exactly the same as the first Legacy Collection and the way saving works now makes for a fairer challenge that doesn't make things too easy. It's just a shame the enhanced version of Mega Man 8 wasn't used and Mega Man & Bass was not included, as it gives the impression Capcom's heart wasn't quite in it. It's a decent collection, but plays things far too safe.

The games included in Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 might not be the best in the series, but they're still fun as hell. Little to no extras and the fact that this is not a proper collection will draw back most of the players, but true Mega Man fans cannot refuse the chance of acquiring Mega Man 9 and Megan Man 10 in their first physical release.

All things considered, the inherent value of Mega Man Legacy Collections one and two can only be determined by specific player interest. These collections might be nice and new, but the experiences within are distinctly old-school, providing the sort of gritty, challenging platforming action that feels increasingly rare in the current era of gaming.

I love Mega Man games. They're some of the best platforms ever made. However, as much as I enjoy the four titles bundled within its bits and bytes, Mega Man Collection 2 would be difficult to recommend if it cost a penny more than its $20 asking price. It's hard enough to recommend as it is. How much you get out of it will depend on how much you still enjoy a core gameplay loop that hasn't evolved much since 1988, and how much you want to rescue Mega Man 9 from last-gen purgatory.

Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 lacks on content, with only four games... and not the best ones. But it's still enjoyable and it's still Mega Man.

A good compilation of four great games. It's a shame that the games included are the original ones, and not enhanced versions.
