Mega Man Legends 2 continues the successful 3-D spinoff of the 2-D Mega Man franchise. It features familiar characters from the series, and mixes action-adventure, RPG, and puzzle gameplay. Accompanying Mega Man are Roll, the Bonne family, the Servbots, Data, and Glyde. The story revolves around the recently discovered Sealed Key, which could unlock the Great Legacy--a mystery that could be either a boon or a curse to mankind. There are several towns in which to explore, and a giant airship called the Flutter will transport the party there.

Then, as if to say "oh, you think THAT'S somethin'..." Capcom released megaman legends 2 and minds burned 'round the world. Megaman legends embodies all that is the megaman series, in all it's 3-D glory
MML2 is one of the few games to deliver a good story, good graphics (for it's time, at least) and great control. megaman moves seemlessly, strafes, fires, and jumps. and it all seems natural. you use the control stick/pad to move, and the shoulder buttons to turn. it's a tad tedious at first, but it really works. you'll forget you ever said "that's the craziest control scheme ever!"
now I know you're thinking "but Ginzo, i'm a hardcore megaman fan at heart, and seeing the blue bomber in 3-D makes me wanna puke my guts out." Well, even for you, mister hardcore megaman-er, this is a great game. I reccomend this to anyone who likes non-stop 3-D run-and-gun megaman action.
All my five are belong to this.
First off, the ruin designs are excellent - maybe even better than the 1st game's - but not likely. A couple of the key mazes in this game involve backtracking to the same place well more than once, which can get tedious, especially when the area is filled with water or the gravity is heavy or whatnot, and it slows you down. Other than that, the mazes are flawless!
There is a slight problem with the battles though, and I'm sure those of you that have played the game have seen it - the 'Ultimate Technique' of locking onto the prime target and blasting away while running in a constant circle. It makes many battles way too easy.
The graphics have been improved from the last game. The models have higher polygons counts and much better coloration (something the last gamewas really lacking). The music is much better too, and not quite as downright corny as the 1st game.
The plot goes into more depth, too. It's very slightly on the darker and more serious side, and the characters are cooler too (Sera is the most unusual villain I've ever seen, but she's devoid of any and all emotion, and definitely the perfect villain for this story. What makes it better is that you don't see it in her until it's too late). The plot explains more of Mega Man Trigger's origins and even the reason why he's on the planet - I won't reveal that though). The game definitely has its lighthearted moments. The Bonnes are still there, which is a definite plus! There are some new pirates too.
All things said (and I could ramble on longer about how much I like this game), the game is definitely worth getting if you're either a Mega Man fan, or if you played the first game and then left in the dark on what the hell was going on. It gives plenty of opportunities for free exploration, and you always find something the second time around you missed the first time (whether it's in a town or a ruin, I gurantee there's gonna be something new to see).
Total Game Time normally takes about 16 to 18 hours to complete (that is, if you're doing your best and trying to obtain most items).
Weapon attachments include Homing Missile, Spread Buster, Drill Arm, and many more.
The game now features underwater adventures! Strap on the new Hydro Jets, and make diving fun and easy!
Not just one island! Now you can travel to Calinca (it SHOULD be spelled Kalinka), Nino, and Manda islands, as well as many more!
In all, I found the game a real treat. While maybe not too on the fast-paced action/exciting side, it certainly is a must to those of you who wish to see how the mystery unfolds... I have few complaints, aside wishing the Bonnes played a bigger role, and seeing the original voice actors for MegaMan (as well as some better, more acurate translations, which was my main quelm), but seriously, it is still understandable if you missed out on MegaMan Legends 1, but I would advise trying the first one first. That way, you won't be completely lost, and it will make the sequel so much more enjoyable! Be safe!
