Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection Reviews
Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy collection reminds us that the series did not shine at its brightest trying to move from action to story-based fiction. The six different games are still okay, but their original mecanics could have been tweaked a little to match the new video game standards.

All in all, this collection coming out on the back of the original Mega Man and Mega Man X Series is a must have for fans or those that never actually got around to playing them.
There’s fun to be had here, sure, but it’s found in pockets among huge swathes of frustration.
The heroes in these games are fun to play as because they are powerful, and being powerful is awe-inspiring. It is cathartic to cut robots in half with a laser sword, as chunky pixel art blurts out all over the floor. It is a satisfying challenge that is just not available anywhere else.
With an engaging story, tight controls, and flashy action, the Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection makes you feel like a real hero, despite some stumbles along the way.
Although it doesn't do a good job in localization, it's still a must-buy collection for Mega Man fans.

If you’re a fan of Mega Man, or even action platformers in general, the Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection is worth checking out.
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!
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.
Mega Man Zero/ZX Collection offers a refreshing set of games with an interconnected story and exciting gameplay segments. This collection is best suited for dedicated fans as it is deep-rooted in the Mega Man lore, but the gameplay itself should be enjoyable for anyone who loves platforming and difficult boss fights.
The Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection is a great collection. It contains six solid and enjoyable games with a lot of nice quality of life features that make this the definitive version of the game. The only real flaw is that the games have aged, and no smoothing filter can hide the jagged GBA pixels. If you can look past that, then this is a great addition to any Mega Man fan's collection, and if you missed these gems on the GBA or DS, then you owe it to yourself to give it a chance.
Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection is an excellent little package that is sure to please fans both old and new.
While I can't give Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection a broad recommendation above the Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 and 2, I can still put in a favorable mention. Zero 3, and the two ZX games – Advent especially – are the top picks in this compilation, all with optional adjustments to better reflect modern gaming sensibilities.
This is the third collection (out of three until now) that Capcom did right, with added difficulty options, a new speedrun mode and six great games for less than thirty bucks. Count us in!

All around, Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection is a great package, and a celebration of this franchise's heyday - now to hope for a brand new Mega Man Zero game, hopefully...
The games included in the Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection aren't always perfect, but they're still a ton of fun to take on thanks to some impressive stories, graphics and a nice level of challenge. Like the previous Legacy Collections for the Classic and X series, it's something fans will love to rediscover or even discover for the first time and is worth picking up. It's an odd chapter of Mega Man history, but one worth learning about again.
Overall, in a deal of 6 games in one collection with added features for new and casual players, the Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy collection is certainly an enjoyable and potentially challenging experience
There is only so much you can say about Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection before this becomes an entirely too long article. The core experience is largely the same and what you'd expect. Enemies have tricky arrangements, bosses take some learning, there are easy ways to do things and sword-based combat offers a different take for a number of situations. With so many games included, some modernization and more, it's easy to see the value in picking up this pack, though you want to be aware of the shortcomings. Graphics can be harsh, as can gameplay, but it will reward anyone able to overcome these elements.
Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection offers up six great games and enough challenges and extra content to keep you coming back for me. The inclusion of a casual mode and save assist feature helps new players experience the games that they may not have had a chance to do before.
Compiling six solid titles together, the Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection shines a light on a series that many never got the chance to experience. These games offer a fresh take on a familiar formula and a welcome diversion from the main series.
