All told, Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 feels like a letdown compared to the stellar presentation of its predecessor. Missing features and lower quality games easily make this the more skippable of the two, although that doesn’t necessarily mean that this is a bad collection.
Overall, this second Legacy Collection is weaker than the first. The game are not as rock(man)-solid and losing the ability to save anywhere or rewind dampens their appeal. I can certainly recommend Mega Man 8 and 10, but that’s just two games—half the collection. And, again, it’s a shame that there aren’t any bonus games included that could round out the selection.
It may come as no surprise, then, that Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 is a great companion package to complete the original canon saga. It wouldn’t surprise me if the newer generation of gamers would actually favour this over the first, due to the technically more advanced graphics and more ambitious ways that Capcom had stirred up the formula. I still personally favour the original collection if I didn’t have the choice of having both, but I am in my mid-30s and loved them as a kid so that is a given.
