Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 (2017) Review

I would recommend reading my review of  the first Mega Man Legacy Collection before reading this review

https://ragglefragglereviews.com/2018/02/24/mega-man-legacy-collection-2015-review/

Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 is a set of Mega Man games that was released in 2017, the set contains Mega Man 7 through 10

I really enjoyed the original Mega Man Legacy Collection so I was eager to dive into this one when I got the chance.

Mega Man 7 (1995)

81o99xyQoGL._AC_SL1500_

Wow Capcom really stepped up their box art game for this one, its really awesome and has loads of detail, the past games had some interesting box art but most of them were quite odd choices for the games they represented.

MM7-Promo-Art

Six months after finally imprisoning Dr Wily, Dr Wily’s Laboratory reactivates releasing four robot masters who have been programmed to find their master, these Robots attack Dr Light and bring chaos to the city, all of this was a ruse to cover his escape from prison leaving Mega Man to once again set out to defeat Wily and save the day.

hqdefaultThe start really puts a lot players off at first is because it begins with an introduction stage that has a lot of unskippable dialogue the second reason is that at first due to the plot of the game you can only choose to fight four robot masters which is a step down compared to the previous games which allowed you to pick from all eight.

largeApart from these two things the rest of the game is really great, it adds so much to franchise that really brought a lot to the table. The game looks fantastic thanks to its 16 bit upgrade, it has a lot of fluent animations and very innovative stage and enemy designs.

The game is packed to the brim with secrets and hidden upgrades to add to your arsenal, stages have multiple paths that can be found in order to obtain these secrets adding a lot of replay value to the game.

MM7_RightotShop2

A shop has finally been introduced to the series making it much easier to obtain Energy Tanks. Lives and Weapon Energy, you can purchase these with currency you can find in the game.

MM7_DWno55_ShadeMan

The robot masters in this game are really cool, they all have very well themed stages and all their attacks patterns match their personalities perfectly my favourite stage and fight in the game is against Shade Man.

I really like this game but many people do not and while I understand why that is, I had a lot of fun with this one, it added a lot to the series and the secrets are really fun to find especially Proto man and if you find him enough times in the game you can fight him to obtain his shield. I will say that this game is really hard and it is not very forgiving the final boss almost made me rage quit which does not often happen for me.

Mega Man 8 (1997)

mega_man_8_gh__51996.1397742076

I think this might be the worst box art we have come across so far, its really boring and has almost no detail to it apart from Mega Man himself who to be fair looks great.

Mm8promo

Two Robots fall from space after fighting each other, at this time Mega Man and Rush are also in an intense battle against rival Bass however the fight is interrupted by Roll who brings a message from Dr Light asking Mega Man to investigate strange energy readings he picked up on an Island that is close by. On the Island Dr Wily is spotted flying away with a purple orb. Mega Man chases down Dr Wily soon to discover new robot masters and the fallen robots.

maxresdefault

There was a lot of changes to this game and for the most part they work well enough, the first is the new graphics, due to the game taking place on a disc based system it was able to push extremely smooth animations and the visuals were the best we had seen in a Mega Man game so far, they even had voices for characters during game-play which helped to add a lot of personality.

Another addition thanks to Disc technology was fully animated cut-scenes and even though the voice acting was abysmal the animations were amazing.

109100-mega-man-8-anniversary-edition-playstation-screenshot-stage

You can still only choose from four robot masters at first but again it makes sense due to the way the plot develops in the game, I do miss being able to choose out of all eight though. The shop also returns here but its for upgrades to Mega Man and his Mega Buster as energy, weapon and super tanks are not in the game.

CXcIDY

The game really mixes up its game play by adding new maze platforming sections and terrible on rails sections that will have you tearing your hair out. These on rails sections are the hardest part of the game and while they are extremely annoying the rest of the game is a breeze, I found no trouble in surviving and beating bosses, even the final boss was really easy. The secret upgrades were handed to you for beating mini bosses in some levels so their wasn’t even difficulty in exploration making this the easiest Mega Man game I have ever played.

Mega Man 8 is a really interesting game in the series, it changed the balance of the game play style that the series was known for which was a nice change of pace although some of the new ideas were really frustrating. I was really disappointed with the robot masters in this game because to me none of them really stood out and they were quite forgetful. The game is really easy for the most part which makes this a nice game to start with if you are new to the series and are not wanting to be too invested with the ongoing plot of the past games.

Mega Man 9 (2008)

Megaman9cover

As Mega Man 9 was never released on physical media, we will instead be looking at its virtual art work.

This is much better looking than the Mega Man 8 box art however Mega Man has got some weird design choices and while the Dr Wily in the background is really cool he is absolutely terrifying and looks nothing like he does in any of the games.

mm9

Once again not long after Wily’s last defeat Robots across the world begin to malfunction and attack the city. These robots actually belong to Dr Light and due to this he is arrested. Dr Wily asks civilians for donations to build new peace keeping robots to fix all of the damages, Mega Man knows that Wily cannot be trusted so he heads out to defeat him once again while finding evidence to help clear Dr Lights good name.

Mega Man Legacy Collection 2_20170810172502

First thing to note is that this game takes a lot of inspiration from the original NES games, and the first addition brought over is that you can choose from all eight robot masters from the get go.

maxresdefault (1)

The game uses a very similar colour palette and design to the NES games and I dont mind this, its very nostalgic and does not take away from the experience.

Gtl2n

The robot masters are really fun, my favourite stage and fight is Galaxy man, this game was also the first Mega Man to have a female robot master (Splash Woman). The game even has a great soundtrack and is in my opinion the best soundtrack in any of the main series Mega Man games up to this point so for the most part this game is practically flawless.

I do have one complaint though, they removed the slide ability and charging up the Mega Buster which does not make a lot of sense as they have been a part of the series since they were first introduced but apart from this Mega Man 9 is a great game and one of my favourites.

Mega Man 10 (2010)

Updcover

Once again this game only ever released digitally so we will have to look at the digital art, and this artwork is absolutely amazing, it is my favourite out of all of the main series Mega Man box art, there so are so many details and fantastic illustrations to admire making this a very solid piece of art.

mm10

An outbreak of a rare robot disease call robenza has spread across the world and has infected thousands of robots leaving them very sick and close to a complete shutdown. A month after the outbreak Dr Wily crashes into Dr Lights lab claiming that he was attacked by Robenza affected robots who were trying to steal a Medicine machine he was building to create a cure, Mega Man agrees to defeat the robots and get the parts needed for Wily to build the machine, he heads off to find the robot masters feeling unsure as to whether he should trust Wily.

MM10 Proto Man

The game allows the player to play as either Mega Man, Proto Man and eventually Bass, I played as Mega Man but all of characters have unique dialogue and some difference in how they attack although apart from this the base game remains the same.

download (1)

Mega Man 10 follows the same inspirations as Mega Man 9 so all of the robot masters are available from the beginning and the game play remains very much the same with some differences if playing as Proto Man or Bass adding some replay value.

Mega Man Legacy Collection 2_20180116184833

The stage designs are much harder and in some way more creative and fun, I really like strike mans stage and nitro mans stage, the robot master fights are also much more tricky in this game so players will have to use patience and clever thinking to avoid damage and win the battles. The levels are really short which I believe is because of the increase of difficulty.

MM10WilyCapsuleScreen

I wouldn’t normally talk about a final boss however I feel I need to at this point, this form of Dr Wily is called Wily Capsule and it has appeared in so many times that I am honestly a little sick of seeing it and wish that they would come up with some new ideas for a final form, it is slightly different in this game as there is a fake Wily as well but I would like to a see a different Wily form when I eventually get around to Mega Man 11

Mega Man 10 is a really fun Mega Man game that I really enjoyed, its not one of my favourites however I do appreciate that it added the ability to play as different characters which is something that was new to the main series.

With the games of the collection finished I want to briefly discuss the bonus features in this collection.

tcfUxY7

Each game has 10 challenges that players can attempt, the requirements for each challenge do vary, it might be a boss rush, beating a stage without taking damage or beating challenges in set time limits and more.

OQTSiF

You can play music from all four games to your hearts content in the music player mode and you can look at game art for all of the games in the museum mode.

This is a really good collection and I really enjoyed it however there are two things from the first legacy collection that never carried over to here and it really sucks, the first is the ability to play the Japanese versions of the games and secondly is you can no longer use save states, the game does add save states as checkpoints but its not the same as saving whenever you want too, this did not really affect me as I have been playing Mega Man games for a long time now but its absence was still noted.

Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 gets a 9.2/10

Its was fun to return to this series and I cannot wait to get around to Mega Man 11 and the other Legacy Collections that have been released

I hope you enjoyed this review of Mega Man Legacy Collection 2

Not so Christmas Review: Chicken Run

Workways-Logo.jpg

Chicken Run is a very unusual movie to say the least, Wallace and Gromit creators Aardman teamed up with Dreamworks animation to make an animated version of the Great Escape starring chickens and its fantastic.

Scène

In a slightly kinder interpretation of a Nazi Concentration Camp Chickens are forced to produce eggs for their farmers and if they dont produce enough eggs for the week then its off to the chopping block, all of the chickens are miserable and want to escape but with the farmers Mr and Mrs Tweedy only living only a few feet away from the pen and their sadistic dogs killing any chickens that get out of the pen escape looks near impossible, that is until one day a rooster lands into the pen and Ginger (One of the chickens) sees this rooster as their saving Grace possibly giving them a chance to escape their captivity.

chicken-run-mel-gibson-894748

The Voice Acting in Chicken Run is really great but to be honest I don’t recognize much of the cast except for two people, the first is Miranda Richardson who plays Mrs Tweedy and of course Mel Gibson who plays Rocky the Rooster.

hqdefault

The Animation is done using stop motion, but like many of the past Aardman productions which have used this method the stop motion in Chicken Runs animation is so smooth that it may fool you into thinking it was made using CGI, due to the nature of the the film most of imagery is dark and depressing most likely to match the atmosphere of the film, I did notice that happier characters were decorated with brighter colours but I’m not sure if these colours were to help empathise their good spirits.

Chicken Run is one of greatest British animated films of all time and it needs to be seen by everyone, I’m not sure if it was released outside of Europe but if you haven’t seen it then you can stream it on Netflix or you can purchase the film if you would like to support Aardman to make more great movies.

I hope you enjoyed my review of Chicken Run

Beauty and the Beast 2017 Review

eu_batb_flex-hero_header_r_430eac8d

Tale as old as time? We’ll see about that

NE33gHKN7fMA68_2_bSo Emma Watson takes the lead in this new adaptation of the much beloved animated classic and while I was afraid that she would do a miserable job playing such an important role, I will say that I was wrong and she was a perfect cast for the character, she gave a good performance which helped to represent Belle’s can do attitude and sense of adventure and for the most part you could tell she enjoyed playing the role, but the one and only issue I had was what everyone else has been saying, Emma Watson’s singing should have been dubbed, the poor girl couldn’t hold a tune to save the queen and this really took a lot of people out of the movies fantastic atmosphere.

tumblr_ocite7sBJy1tp9tvoo1_500.jpg

The rest of the live action cast were also fine, they all gave energetic performances which matched their characters, this was especially good during the musical segments, however I hate the design of the furniture in the castle, in the original film the designs were bright and colourful, even the voice actors in the older animated movie put more effort into their voice acting but here these characters just look so ugly and unerringly creepy, this design works well on the beast because he is supposed to frighten you and he is supposed to be hideous, I don’t know if this was a design choice to help the castle match the beasts disturbing character design but it is honestly just awful.

Beauty and the Beast

Those are my only real complaints with the movie as the rest of it was absolutely fantastic, it has all of the songs you love plus a few new and very well written original songs, the story here is slightly different to the original, this takes more from the book while adding it’s own few additions to the story, the reasoning for the prince being transformed into a beast is explained more clearly in this movie, we get an explanation to what happened to Belle’s mother and to top it all off even the ending isn’t quite as abrupt as the 1991 animated classic, its got all the charm of the original with a couple of mishaps but it makes up for it with the new additions to the story and amazing character performances, I am not even ashamed to say that this may be the better film of the two but only slightly, if you haven’t seen Beauty and the Beast in the cinema yet book your tickets as soon as you can and you wont be disappointed.

What did you think of Beauty and the Beast?

Do you agree with my opinion of the film?

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (PC) (2002) Review

SPONGIFYharry_potter_and_the_chamber_of_secrets_coverart

A year and a half ago I reviewed a mediocre Philosophers Stone game for the PC, it was a fairly bare bones 3D platformer that was way too short and it skipped over many of the best moments from the film and the original novel, today we will be taking look at the PC video game of the second book in the series Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

3d-platformer

You play the game as Harry Potter the boy who lived who is attending his second year at Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry, just like the first game this is a 3D platformer where the objective of the game is too attend classes and beat challenge maps, a huge difference here is how you learn spells, in the first game learning magic was awkward because you needed to trace over shapes with your mouse and with such a limited amount of time performing this task became very difficult, thankfully the game designers have taken a different approach with the sequel as now instead of tracing we instead need to hit corresponding keys on the keyboard in a specified order in the style of a rhythm game.

hqdefault

Quidditch matches have also been heavily modified and I don’t like the changes they have made here, instead of having complete control over your broom so you can fly freely the game controls the broom for the player and all you need to do is bump into the enemy seeker until you are close enough to catch the golden snitch, its boring, it has no challenge at all and the worst part of it is that it feels like the game designers were just being lazy and were trying to rush out the game.

harry-potter-and-the-chamber-of-secrets-pc-game-full-version

The graphics are impressive when compared to the first game, everything is smoother and less pixelated but for a game from 2002 they are still pretty bad, on the bright side the level designs are more detailed and are genuinely more interesting to explore, the best part of the game is finding all of the secrets around Hogwarts castle and the castle grounds, through out the game you will learn an array of spells which can be used to defeat enemies and open up secret passageways where you may find a famous witches and wizards card.

hqdefault-1

The first game had only 25 cards to collect and for doing so all you would receive was a slightly extended ending, this game has a whopping 101 cards which is the staple for the majority of the Harry Potter games, the cards come in three categories, gold, silver and bronze, the bronze cards are common and for every 10 you collect you will gain an additional health bar, the silver cards are uncommon and for every ten of those you find you will come one step closer to accessing a bonus area which can only be accessed once the player finds all 40 of the silver cards, the bonus room is a platforming level, which is full of enemies and puzzles, the player has a set amount of time to try and find the 11 rare gold cards in the game, again I don’t think its worth going out of your way to collect these but honestly it was much more fun to do so here than it was before.

maxresdefault

You can buy cards from other students around Hogwarts by using Bertie Botts every flavoured beans which can be found throughout the game, this isn’t necessary since every card can be found hidden inside and around the school but it is helpful if you don’t want to back track later on, the best way to collect beans is by entering the bonus bean room which you can only access if your house has the most points during the segments of the game where Dumbledore tallies up the house scores.

The music in the game is what can be expected from a cash grab title that was made to help push DVD sales but its fun to listen too and not once is it annoying nor does it take away from the game play experience.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets for the PC is a fun little game that is worth picking up if you manage to find it really cheap but if you cant your really not missing out on much, I can quite happily say that this is a good game but its far from a great Harry Potter gaming experience 6.3/10

I hope you enjoyed my review of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets for the PC

If you respect my opinion, I will respect yours

DLC in Nintendo Games?

zelda_breath_of_the_wild_dlc_01

One of the biggest announcements for the new Zelda game coming out in the next couple of days was that Nintendo is adding Downloadable content which is a first for a main series Zelda title, as you can imagine this announcement has split fans, some people including myself couldn’t care less but others have been cancelling their pre-orders for the game.

download-1

First of all this is not the first time Nintendo has added DLC to their games, they added new tracks and characters to Mario Kart and new stages and fighters to Super Smash Bros Wii U/3DS, I don’t recall so many people complaining when DLC for those games were announced but to be fair Breath of the Wild is a bit of a special case because not only is it a single player experience but Nintendo announced DLC before the game had even been released which lets be honest was a fairly stupid move on Nintendo’s part.

facepalm_id_by_urkel8534

So whats my stance on this whole DLC malarkey? well like I said I don’t care about DLC in general and it isn’t likely that I will buy DLC for any games that are not Mario Kart or Splatoon, I don’t agree with any first party single player games having DLC (Zelda, Mario, Metroid and so on) but I can understand paying to add new content in multiplayer games at a reasonable price of course, I feel that having DLC in single player games takes away a lot of the fun, I remember when I was younger you could unlock additional content in games by performing certain tasks, I will still never forget the first time I unlocked the original Prince of Persia game in the Sands of Time.

On a final note though I will say that we shouldn’t look at Nintendo as if they are different to every other game company in the world, yes they are late to some of these awful video game practices but every other company has been doing it for years and we all seem ok with them so why shouldn’t we give Nintendo the same respect and just accept the changes they are wanting to make, even if we don’t particularly agree with those changes.

Either way in only two days we will all be able to play on the Nintendo Switch and I personally cannot wait to run around Hyrule again without the dumb expansion packs.

I hope you enjoyed this semi rant

That’s it for Nintendo Switch Content now until we eventually get around to Reviewing Breath of the Wild which I’m hoping to have reviewed by the end of April depending on how long the game is.

The top 5 unannounced games I want for Nintendo Switch

nintendo-2

The Nintendo Switch is officially less than 10 days away from release and while there are a lot of games which have been announced I am only genuinely excited for three of them, those being Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2 and of course the long awaited Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but what about the games that haven’t been announced?

These are the 5 games I want to be announced for the Nintendo Switch…..hopefully at E3

HD Remakes

f950cb4be916e5e401868929870ab888

Lets get the boring one out of the way first, Nintendo are great at making new games and expanding the universes of their video game characters but I still want to see more of their old games getting remade with modern graphics and controls, we all want Mario Sunshine and Luigi’s Mansion HD and so do I but I think some of Nintendo’s older titles would benefit from HD remakes, imagine being able to play Mario 64 in 1080p and without the dodgy controls and what about a HD remake of Donkey Kong 64 or Pilot Wings, there are a lot of titles that would be great as HD remakes but for me personally I would like to see a HD Metroid Prime Trilogy or HD Pikmin and Pikmin 2.

Animal Crossing

animal-crossing-640x336

This November will mark the fifth anniversary of Animal Crossing New Leaf for the Nintendo 3DS, I think its time for a brand new Animal Crossing game and what better system to do this on than the Nintendo Switch, honestly I have never enjoyed the handheld Animal Crossing games as much as the ones released on stay at home systems and if released on the switch an Animal Crossing game would suit what I want and it could also be played as a handheld game for those who prefer playing on the go, so everyone wins however there are some major changes I want made to the series, first of all I want more creativity when it comes to building your town and by this I mean that players are able to build the islands themselves from the ground up also I think at this point we should be able to play as an animal if we want too, how about a character building mode where we can create our own characters in very unique and creative ways, I wont go into too many details on this as it may become an article of its own at some point.

Pikmin 4 

wiiu_pikmin3_scrn14_e3resized

Ok so Pikmin 4 has technically been announced for years but it hasn’t been announced for the Nintendo Switch so I still think this counts, I love cute things and the Pikmin games are no exception I like how Nintendo have taken a subject as dark as the extinction of the human race and made an adorable game series where you play as space captains who run around earth and control strange plant creatures to collect fruits and relics that have been left behind by humans, I haven’t gotten around to playing the third game yet but its on my to do list but in the mean time I hope Nintendo hurry’s up with Pikmin 4.

F-Zero 

66582-f-zero_gx-3

I think Mario Kart is a great game series but we get one or two of those every year, but we havent had an F-Zero game  since 2003, for those who don’t know F-Zero is a fast paced racing game that takes place in space, the games went on to spawn an amazing anime series and F-Zero was one of the biggest inspirations for the Hovercraft’s in Mario Kart 8, I don’t know why this series stopped but many would agree that it needs to return in big ways.

Luigi’s mansion 3 plus a Dark Moon Port

236203_scr7_a

I loved both of the Luigi’s Mansion games and I would really like to see a Luigi’s mansion 3, the changes I want to make in these games may surprise you but I think they could work, first of all I want Mario out of the game completely I think Luigi’s brother gets enough of the spotlight already, I want multiple playable characters which all have unique abilities and must be switched constantly to solve puzzles, some ideas of characters could be a toad, Luigi (obviously), Professor E-Gadd and Princess Daisy, also a new and more menacing villain and a scarier premise, that is my dream Luigi’s Mansion game and although I cant imagine this will ever happen I will still want a Luigi’s Mansion 3 and I know a lot of you guys do too.

Those are the top 5 games I want announced for the Nintendo Switch

Which games are on your list

I hope you enjoyed this article

Next week will be an article of my opinions of Nintendo DLC and how it could either succeed or fail

The Pros and Cons of the Nintendo Switch Live Presentation

maxresdefault

We are officially only three weeks away from the release of the Nintendo Switch and in celebration every week up until the release I will be releasing articles expressing my excitement for the system.

On the 12th of January 2017 Nintendo released an hour long presentation discussing important information about their new system, I have watched the presentation multiple times and although I am very excited about the new console I do feel that Nintendo have made some rather critical mistakes.

cry610

Lets start by going over what I consider to be the most disappointing parts of the presentation

Here are the Cons of the Nintendo Switch

nintendo-switch-launch-titles-1024x512

  • Apart from a couple of games the launch line up is not very exciting
  • At the moment games are very expensive, you wont likely be paying less than £50 for a game and some games cost even more
  • Accessories are also ridiculously over priced but to be honest Nintendo have never had great deals on their accessories.
  • There is only 32GB of internal storage but you are able to expand the storage by inserting a micro SD card
  • The battery life while you are out and about is between 2-6 hours which isn’t great but could be much worse
  • Only 1080p resolution on the TV and 720p on the tablet, may not seem like a huge deal but when compared the competition this is fairly low
  • No pack in game comes with the system
  • You need to pay to play online now
    download

    With the worst out of the way, I can finally talk about the Pros of the Nintendo Switch

  • The price of the system is only £279.99
  • The release date (March 3rd 2017) is earlier than we expected
  • Lots of third party developers are creating titles for the system
  • For the first time ever Bethesda Game Studios are developing for the switch,The Elder Scrolls Skyrim is being released on the system

arms-nintendo-switch

  • Two brand new IP’s were announced, out of the two IP’s that were announced the most exciting for me was ARMS, ARMS is a non traditional boxing game that uses extendable arms to fight, it looks really cool and I am really looking forward to playing it
  • A sequel to Splatoon was announced
  • A brand new 3D sandbox Mario game was announced, Super Mario Odyssey has not had too much information released about the new game but we do know that it has a release date of Holiday 2017
  • A direct sequel to the ever so popular Xenoblade Chronicles was announced, Xenoblade 2 will be released sometime this year
  • Hyrule Warriors fans will be pleased to know that a Fire Emblem Warriors game is coming to the Switch
  • A HD port of Mario Kart 8 is coming in April, it includes all previous DLC, A brand new Battle Mode and new characters and tracks
  • Breath of the wild has a brand new trailer complete with voice acting and a release date of March 3rd was announced meaning that Zelda will be there for the launch of the system

So that was a basic breakdown of what I consider to be the best and worst parts of the Nintendo Switch Live Presentation, Next week I will be discussing the top 5 games I want for the switch which have yet to be announced.

I hope you enjoyed my look at the Nintendo Switch Live Presentation
