Two years after the release of Capcom's Mega Man Legacy Collection comes to its sequel which contains the rest of the Mega Man series. The first collection contains 6 games from the main series(Mega Man, Mega Man 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6), while the second collection contains Mega Man 7, 8, 9, and 10. The first collection was positively received by critics and gamers with an average Metascore of 77/100 from 22 critics while the Legacy Collection 2 has an average of 73/100 also from 22 critics as of writing.
"Especially next to the first Mega Man Legacy Collection’s six games and nicer save system, The Mega Man Legacy Collection 2’s package of four included games is ultimately a step backward." - IGN review score 6/10
You might say that the collection is now complete but there is a Mega Man game which was considered to be included in the main series called Mega Man and Bass which was launched for the Super Famicom and GBA. The game's story takes place a year after the events of Mega Man 8. There's also an enhanced version of Mega Man 8 which unfortunately was not the version included in the collection.
"Mega Man & Bass's omission sucks, and I wish the whole thing had more extras, but these are still four great 2D platformers." GamesBeat review score 80/100
Overall, Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 is still a decent collection of one of the most challenging side-scrolling platform game whose influence helped shape the genre that we know today.
There is an added bonus included in the game wherein the player can unlock everything from the very beginning in Mega Man 9 and 10 which comes with a simple cheat code as per Eurogamer. The cheat code is :
Up, down, left, right, left, right, down, up, up, down.
