Review by Tom Allen
1½ Stars out of 4

The release of Mega Man Legends 2 comes as a big surprise. The first game was a relatively unaffecting 3-D betrayal of the series' classic 2-D game play. This game improves upon the changes established in the first game, but I'm not yet convinced that Mega Man belongs in the adventure RPG genre.

Having lived through this game's ambitious but poor controls, I have to say that I want the old Mega Man back. Mega Man does not feel right in 3-D. Somehow I always end up walking crooked. The camera is never where I want it. The reason is more a fault of the design of the controls rather than an issue of precision or responsiveness.

I also have issues with the graphics. The PlayStation should not have been the platform of choice for this game. Hopefully Capcom will release a Dreamcast version. Mega Man is a technical character that deserves more technically impressive visuals.

In fairness, the game does get better the more you play. Also, the use of the right analog stick to adjust camera angles is a nice plus. While it's nice to see Mega Man again, he seems much younger than in the 8-bit games. Mega Man Legends 2 is a pretty good game for kids, but let's hope for a hard-core game in the series soon.
