The games are as good as they were, the additions are cool but not that important, so in this regard, if you already have previous versions of this collection (PS2, Gamecube etc...), there is no urge for you to get this one unless you are a collector or a huge fan in which case you know what you are getting (here, episodes 7 to 10) for an affordable price.
Sadly, these collections were not released in Europe on physical format but thanks to Play-Asia, it is way easier and cheaper to import titles than what it was back in the days.
Pour mes compatriotes Francophones; Cette partie 2 de la compilation est bien, dommage que la totalité des jeux Megaman soit sur 2 blu-rays (contrairement à celle pour Megaman X), mais les jeux restent biens.
Si comme moi, vous rêviez d'avoir tous les épisodes "platformer" de Megaman sur une même console, n'hésitez pas, entre les 2 boites pour Megaman et la compil Megaman X, vous avez de nombreuses heures de plaisir en perspective.
Maintenant, espérons que Capcom continue dans sa lancé et sorte une compil pour les jeux de la série "Legends" et/ou les jeux consoles portables, et là on sera au top.
Dommage que l'Europe (et ailleurs) n'ai pas eu droit aux versions boites des jeux (alors que le Français est sur les boites US) car qui dit import, dit frais de port et de douanes supplémentaires, mais Play-Asia reste une bonne valeur avec des prix très abordables.
Bon jeu à tous.
But where things really kinda screw up is that that's it. Four games. Sure, it completes the main series, but considering Power Fighters and Power Battles are still mostly missing, and Battle & Chase is missing (it was included with the MMX Collection) and Mega Man and Bass doesn't have any version of it on disc, it leaves this collection rather lacklustre.
Then you have the Japanese-only Rockboard, which could could use a quick official translation. The tools are out there, just mod the ROM file, companies use them anyway.
The collection doesn't stand up. The Classic Mega Man series should have been collected unto one disc, with the few untranslated games in there as their first, official English releases in the West. As it stands now, alongside the the first Legacy Collection, we're getting a very limited collection of games.
I'd give this three stars for decently competent ports, except for the fact that the cover has Mega Man killers on the cover, despite them being just DLC for MM10. A clever consumer would would know these characters do not appear in the games proper, but that's giving people too much credit.
Despite that, it's still pretty good!
It's a shame that they didn't included "Rockman & Forte" from Snes...
