Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection Reviews
There’s fun to be had here, sure, but it’s found in pockets among huge swathes of frustration.
A few extra quality of live improvements would have made this collection even better, but it’s still worth a pickup in its finished state.
The fact that Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection exists is incredible as it's comprised of some of the most enjoyable and underrated 2D action games ever made. If you're a fan of the genre, you need to add this to your gaming library.
Compilations are hard to judge. No matter what the collection, some games will invariably be more enjoyable over others. That said, regardless of individual quality, Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection is a well-made compilation that will definitely appeal to long-time series fans. With its tight gameplay, gorgeous graphics, terrific music, and a number of customization options, there's a lot for players to enjoy. At the end of the day, it's hard to say whether or not the collection will appeal to newcomers. The steep difficulty and overly complicated storylines are definitely a hurdle to overcome. It's hard to recommend this collection over any of the previous Mega Man Legacy Collections, but for players craving more blue bomber, Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection is worth overcoming those hurdles. Now, bring on Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection, Capcom!
The Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection retains its difficulty and classic gameplay elements in what ends up being a great looking package that can still be accessible to newcomers.
Mega Man Zero / ZX Legacy Collection is the best compilation of the franchise that Capcom has ever released. Unlike the previous editions, which were divided in two, here we have a complete package with all games from the Zero and ZX series. Games that until then were only available on two out of line Nintendo portable consoles are now accessible with new ways to play and are sure to appeal to a wide range of players. From the novices, who can play them in a more casual and pleasant way, to the veterans of the series, who now have support for achievements / trophies and the possibility to show worldwide who is the best at Z Chaser.

For those who played these games to death, you’ll still want to get this, provided you have no other means of revisiting them in their original GBA and DS forms. Long story short, I do hope this spells a resurgence for X’s BFF Zero and the future of the Mega Man series because this is one legacy worth preserving.
These are six impressive titles (surely the best of the "Mega Man X" saga) at a very competitive price that, although in itself does not contribute much compared to its originals, more than the beginners mode that will allow us to play or replaying the title without adding much stress to the original experience ensures hours and hours of fun.

The Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection is the best and most complete collection offered by Mega Man; the collection of past golden and unexperienced titles, along with huge improvements, make the collection so valuable that we can't just pass it. Whether you're a fan of the Mega Man series or enjoying platformer titles in general, this is one of the must-have titles.

Mega Man Zero / ZX Legacy Collection includes the 4 parts of Mega Man Zero from Game Boy Advance and the 2 parts of Mega Man ZX from Nintendo DS in a single compilation loaded with extras ranging from the art gallery, music player, or the new ZChaser time trial mode. 6 titles of the talented studio Inti creates for Capcom that will delight fans of the blue bomber, although this time from the hand of the charismatic Zero.

Those games are far from being gorgeous on a big screen and they make the original Mega Man look fair in comparison, but they are a neat take on the franchise’s core gameplay, with an emphasis on storytelling and light RPG mechanics. And let’s be honest, Zero is by far the single coolest son of a gun this franchise has ever created. A collection featuring six games starring him isn’t a bad deal at all.
There is a lot of excellent game design packed into the Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection. With the added Z Chaser, save assist, and casual mode, the series is now more accessible than ever with added modes for returning fans. Any of the shortcomings of one title is made up for in the other, which makes it easy to say that that this collection is 2D action at its finest.
30 bucks, 6 games, 5 heroes, 1 cart or disc. I think Zero/ZX Legacy Collection is the ultimate compilation of Mega Man thus far.
