GamePro (US) (Nov 24, 2000)
Fans of the 2D MM entries have nothing to fear: Mega Man Legends carries on the fun, addictive qualities of the series with class. Going from 2D to 3D is a pleasure for a change.
Random Access (Nov 11, 2010)
If there are any other qualms, it's that the difficulty and length of the game may be something to complain about: Mega Man Legends can easily be completed in under 10 hours, but those hours will go by quickly, considering how much fun you'll be having. Heck, it's worth playing just to see Mega Man "accidentally" walk in on Roll in her bedroom... Hilarity ensues. It was later ported to the Nintendo 64 (with few improvements, if any, though I remember preferring the controls of Mega Man 64 more for some reason), the PC, and the PSP (though only in Japan), but it IS technically available elsewhere if you lack a PlayStation on which to try it. So you have no excuse not to find out more about the legend behind Mega Man!

Overall, the game is big and will take a good amount of time beat. The more I played Mega Man Legends, the more I wanted to play.

The third iteration of the Blue Bomber is more playful and adventurous than his 2-D predecessors and is definitely worth giving a chance if you happen to own a console that can play it.

Bref, j'adore les petits jeux comme ça avec le coeur à la bonne place! À la fin, j'étais triste quand l'aventure s'est terminée. J'adore le design artistique, la simplicité, et je suis tombé en amour avec la petite île de Kattelox et ses habitants. Le jeu a aussi créé un personnage intéressant en Miss Tron Bonne. Je comprends très bien pourquoi ce jeu est devenu un classique culte aujourd'hui.
PSM (Jun, 1998)
Overall, Capcom has done a very competent job bringing our blue hero into the third dimension, but this game lacks the polish that earlier Mega Mans had. The game engine itself is not really that impressive and relies on simple, polygonal shapes as well as too many repeated textures. This is why many areas, such as the insides of buildings and dungeons, tend to always look the same. However, this simplistic design does make Mega Man Legends look like an interactive cartoon, which may draw in younger players, or fans who just like anime-style graphics.
Game Revolution (Nov 01, 1998)
There are some rough edges though - the game is too hard and frustrating at points and the gameplay can become repetitive if you can't figure out what you are supposed to do. But for the most part, if you like Megaman or like adventure games - Legends is a solid pick.
Absolute Playstation (Oct, 1998)
I am not a huge fan of Mega Man but I don't want to rip it too much. It is an enjoyable game if you are into the Action/RPG Genre and is a good first effort in bringing Mega Man to the PlayStation in 3D. I will continue to play Mega Man but it is not something that I will rush home for.
GameSpot (Jun 09, 1998)
In the end, what Capcom has managed to do has been this: It's deftly avoided the pitfalls that await most platformers making the jump from 2D to 3D by creating an action/RPG instead. Relying less on twitch reflexes and more on exploration and storytelling, Mega Man Legends makes a graceful entry into the world of 3D, rather than the clumsy splash associated with other less-successful debuts. If Capcom continues to explore the paths that this series could follow, and enhance the graphic presentation and control somewhat, it just might be on to something special. Legends indeed.
Consoles Plus (Nov, 1998)
Toutes les actions habituelles sont présentes, mais le jeu reste très limité au niveau graphique. Les décors sont pauvres, et la maniabilité un peu laborieuse. Enfin, les fans seront comblés.
