Mega Man has starred in over 20 games since Capcom first introduced him, back in the 8-bit era. A testament to the popularity of the series and Capcom’s ability to refine the series and give gamers what they want. Playability and Mega Man have always gone hand in hand, and Mega Man Legends 2 on the PlayStation is another example of this. To coincide with the release of Mega Man X5, a 2D platformer, Legends 2 is a 3D polygon-based, action platformer.

Legends 2 picks up the story where the first game left off and greatly expands on the game world and story. Mega Man and Roll are Refractor diggers, they are travelling the world searching for the Great Legacy. The Great Legacy is rumoured to be a source of pure energy and infinite power. This power should be used for good and under no circumstances can it fall into the wrong hands. It is imperative that you find the Great Legacy first.

To add to the intriguing storyline, Mega Man Legends features engaging gameplay and a superb control method. Normally, controlling the camera in a 3D platformer can be quite tricky. In Legends 2, the camera is controlled in real time by manipulating the second analogue stick, so you can move and look in separate directions simultaneously. This makes negotiating the levels a pleasure.

Legends 2 is nearly twice the size of the first game and features twice as many enemies. You can also interact with the townspeople, and their help can be invaluable when taking on the massive bosses. For example, if you talk to an inhabitant who is angry with the boss, they might reveal a blind spot that you can exploit in the fight. It’s moments like these that make character interaction so important in Legends 2.

Mega Man Legends 2 is an involving game with many top moments to keep you entertained. Worth buying on the quality of the mini-games alone.
