I do want to replay these sometime soon on the Wii U VC. Does anyone know if the digital versions detect save files from other games?

They are very good games and can be rewarding if you are into testing your skill. I enjoyed S-ranking them.

If you don't care about rank they won't be that hard to finish, and if you care about rank you will probably need to practice, and depending on your skill, maybe re-do each level/boss a few times. Then you get to the last levels and it is boss rush time so you practically need to defeat each boss without getting hit.

To get an S-rank in some of those levels you need to almost do a speed run of the level, while killing a certain number of enemies and not getting hit more than 1 or 2 times. And if you are in MMZ2 and want to unlock certain moves or skills for Zero you will also need to do that while fulfilling certain criteria (like kill enough enemies with a jump-slash).

And then when you finish you can play again on Hard mode which doesn't even let you charge up (meaning also that you can't elemental-charge attacks for boss weaknesses). I didn't try that myself.

I greatly enjoyed playing these games via the Zero Collection for the DS. It took quite some time to even beat one of them though, but once I did, it felt quite rewarding.

I'm at the end of Mega Man Zero and the boss rush is why I took a break. I raged so much A-ranking each stage up to the boss rush point, that I decided to take a break so I didn't destroy my mind.

By the time you get there, having A-ranked each guy, your skills (as a player) have improved. It will still be hard to ranking highly of course, but it is not as "impossible" as it appears to be.

You can also get a lot of practice quick, as opposed to the usual levels where there is a lot of random enemies and platforming in the middle where you can also mess up.

I've beaten the first three and would not recommend it, mainly because of the low resolution/zoomed in view. Wish they had done something about that for the DS collection.
