Today marks the rerelease of another round of beloved Capcom classics. After two months since its surprise reveal, Mega Man Collection 2 finally hits PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam today for $20 USD, bringing Mega Man 7, 8, 9, and 10 to modern hardware with a number of bonus features and special add-ons.
The collection has so far earned an average 73% aggregated score on Metacritic at the time of writing. Reviewers have overall enjoyed playing the remaining quartet of Mega Man titles on today's systems, although one common criticism was that Capcom's compilation fell short compared to Digital Eclipse's own efforts with the original Mega Man Legacy Collection from 2015 and The Disney Afternoon Collection in April.
Here's a roundup of reviews for Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 from other sites:
- The Mega Man Network: "Put simply, the core contents are just fine, it's the packaging that doesn't live up to the standard set by what's come before it. But even then, it's not bad -- it just feels like the developers did the job they needed to do and left it at that."
