Mega Man Legends is an action-adventure shooter game released by Capcom. A Nintendo 64 port was released in 2000 with the same title, but it was renamed Mega Man 64 for the English release in 2001.
In Mega Man Legends, you take control of Mega Man Volnutt and navigate him through Kattlelox Island. Along the way, you’ll meet the cast of unique characters that will help define the story as you progress. Keeping you company is Mega Man’s sister Roll, their Grandpa Barrel, and their hyperactive pet monkey (that only Mega Man supposedly understands) named Data. You also meet the Bonne family. A group of pirates also looking for the Mother Load. You’ll have quite a few encounters with them.
The gameplay might also seem awkward at first, but after you spent some time running around, you’ll realize how reasonable the control is when it comes to gameplay, MML rocks! By successfully implementing RPG elements into this action-adventure game, the result is amazingly fun gameplay. When not fighting any enemy in the underground dungeon or sometimes on the open field, you can relax and wonder all around this virtual island where the whole story is carried out. Chat with the people around, perform rewarding little tasks, or even upgrading MegaMan’s combat ability. All of these can be done in a relaxing virtual world when you’re tired of fighting and exploration. In MML, you travel all around in the actual world, not around a little overhead map found in very RPG. And unlike most RPG, you don’t have a random encounter with enemies that suddenly appears out of nowhere. Part of the great charms of MML is the various boss characters that you’ll have to fight. The boss characters come in various designs and are very imaginative! And the situations where you’ll fight them are also varied and very interesting.
The controls can be a bit tricky at first in this game. Although it only takes, on average, about a couple of hours to get them down pretty well. Once you get them down, you’ll either like them a lot or hate them to death. Either way, though, the controls are unique, and we appreciate them a lot.
