    Was it always this hard?

    I grew up with Megaman X as my go to series (having for some reason skipped the megaman series). I still remember a lot of the levels, and tricks needed to get through them in one piece. If you think this will be an easy breeze, think again. This was a time when games made you work for them. Now mind you this is easier then megaman, the X series added some help there, but its still hard. There is a new added mode to make it easier for people just starting out, but I haven't tried it to see HOW much easier it makes it. Runs smooth on switch in dock and handheld with no problems. Only complaint I could have, make sure you have internet and some memory space if you want the full game. The 'second half' of the game is a download code which is annoying.

    I'm 40 years old. If you remember these games when they first came out. You will not be disappointed. The only issue that i have with this release is not of the game itself. It's the way that it was released and executed by splitting up MM 1-6 and MM 7-10. Also, if you don't have at least 5GB on your system. You won't get the second half of the game since it's only available as a digital code. I like buying physical games still and this was a disappointment. Game play itself is good and the transitions plus difficulties are still there with some cool bonus stuff. The time challenges are worth it because it tests the true die hard fans with extra challenges that even the veteran player will find challenging. It's worth double or triple dipping to purchase.

    Worth it simply for Legacy Collection 1!

    The first six Mega Man games included on the first collection are all pretty dang good, and the "rewind" feature included on them (you can simply hit the L button to reverse time and redo a tricky jump or tough boss) as well as the ability to save anywhere lessen the crushing difficulty substantially and make them way more fun! The second collection is missing the rewind and save features and is much more of a mixed bag in terms of game quality. It's also a download code, which is frustrating. Still, the strength of the first collection makes it worth owning! You do also get a Mega Man cleaning cloth for your Switch screen, which is a nice bonus!

    I wish this was two game carts or an all-on-one cart...the mixed "cartridge and code" method just feels clunky to me. Also, there's no getting around the fact that this is two separate games stapled together in one collection; the UIs between the two are distractingly different. Notably absent is the Super Famicom version of Mega Man & Bass That said..this is the best way to play Mega Mans 1-10. If you have nostalgia for these games, or maybe missed them entirely and want to pick them up for the first time, this is a great collection to do so with.

    Classic Mega Man, but there is a catch

    The Mega Man Legacy collection is definitely a fun time if you enjoy the classic Mega Man games or if you wanted to play them for the first time in order to prepare for the release of Mega Man 11. The only problem I have with this product is that I thought both "Mega Man Legacy Collection 1" and "Mega Man Legacy Collection 2" would be on the cartridge, but when I opened the case I discovered a download code for the second collection, so I had to buy a mini SD Card in order to have more space for my Switch.

    I'd give it 4 stars if it didn't need download

    Great classic games and wonderful set, only problem is there is only one cart for the first half and a download code for the rest of the games. I'd be much happier with two carts or one larger cart with both sets of the collection. Really a shame Capcom went so cheap on this, all the games could have easily fit on a single cart and I wouldn't have to waste space on my system, plus I could share it with friends and be able to resell it if I wanted to.

    So, the games are exactly as they were "back in the day".... there's just one small issue I take with them.... the fist volume has a frame rate drop issue, but this was also present in the first volume when it came out forveer ago on PS2/Gamecube. It's an emulation issue, and it looks like for that volume they never updated the emulation, they just ported it to Switch. No big deal, it's easily worked through, just interesting they never updated the emulation on a new release....

    In this collection you get access to the entire original series from Mega Man 1 all the way up to 10 and as you would expect those games all play excellently. The only issue is that you receive a download code for the second Legacy Collection and while I feel like most people know about this by now it really is rather silly and defeats the purpose of buying this physically. If you can look past that though these games are classics for a reason, and well worth the price.

    Great job with the port of the original games. Seems like the framerate is consistent, the gameplay feels how it used to, just a very well-done re-release. My only complaint is it feels like the "Challenge" mode didn't really add anything to it, more just made me feel like I had to go fast through a bunch of mini challenges. The X Collection did a much better job, in my opinion, of really challenging me in a different way. Worth buying, though.

    Great to play the old megaman games again. Unfortunately just like the original ones the passwords dont work on final boss stages; have to start back at the first level and you also lose your extra lives. You also have to refill your energy tanks. do not turn off game but instead just put in sleep mode. Also a little disappointing that half of the games have to be downloaded instead of on disk.

    when mega mans were reprised for the 3ds, there was this one great feature where you can flash save any time and it made the game better because it cuts down on the difficulty (so you can actually pass the game). you don't get it in this switch version, which is sad. at least the insane challenges are still intact and it feels good to take mega man on the road with a nicer screen.

    Hardcore Platforming Nostalgia

    Fans wishing to revisit or expirience for the first time an unforgiving platforming series, are in for a treat (or a challenge?). All the pros and cons of Mega Man games are here; with the added "save state/rewind" handy features. Only downside in my opinion, is how the game is presented in two separated collections that are not on the same cartridge.

    10 great Mega Man platforming goodness, the only reason i don't give it the full 5 star is due to the seperation of the game products. the first six games are on a cartridge while the remaining 4 are downloadable via a slip code. I highly recommend this especially with the upcoming mega man 11 coming out this fall!

    Megaman is a very difficult series, so I appreciate that this collection of Meagan games includes the option to rewind your game, in case you make a mistake. I also appreciate the music player options. I would suggest starting with Megaman 2. Good intro to the series, without being outrageously difficult.

    Really enjoyed the port- this is the 3rd copy of this game I've bought (PS4, 3DS). Felt very crisp, responsive. Problem is obvious that LC2 is a digital download rather than on the physical cart. I get that there's only so much space on the cart, but there has to be a fix coming for it. Overall would buy.

    The cartridge in the box gives access to Mega Man 1 through 6. It also comes with a download code for a game that collects 7 through 10. It would be better if they were all on the cartridge, but since for other platforms these collections released at different times, it makes sense.

    The amount of games you get for the price is of value. Imagine NES carts individually! One complaint is why we couldn’t get both legacy collections on cartridges? Japan had 3 options for this release. One of which had both games on carts. Oh well. It’s still worth owning again.

    I love the Mega Man games and glad I can have them on my switch. My one compliant is that it is the first six games are physical and the last four are digital. I wish that they were all one or the other, not split. Amazing games though and definitely worth picking up

    Incredible collection to have it on the go! There is only a problem with lag input while used in dock mode. If you are used to the "old feeling" way of playing, you will definitely feel the lag input trhoug the joycons
