Many collections of "classic" games seem to include only a couple of genuine classics and a whole load of "filler" (the first Midway Arcade Treasures collection being a notable exception). But this is a genuine classics collection, with many great games, quite a few of which still hold up today, and at a bargain price. As far as i can tell, all are exact recreations of the arcade originals. The early Street Fighter games which touched off the fighting game craze (and one of the ones that still holds up well today) are here, along with the influential Final Fight brawler (which was cloned by Sega as Streets of Rage, albeit without the signature giant character sprites). The arcade Ghosts and Goblins is here, along with its sequel and the excellent SNES blend of the two. I was particularly happy to see Forgotten Worlds. This 2-player shooter was stunning in its time, and the original version featured a joystick to move and a knob to aim, allowing independent control of movement and targeting. While various home versions have appeared over the years, the dual joystick control of this version comes the closest to capturing the feel of the arcade controls.

What I'd forgotten was how insanely difficult some of these games were. I can't believe that I was once good enough that I felt like a quarter a play was a good deal. Modern games are designed to pamper the gamer; these monsters were designed to separate him from his money as rapidly as he would tolerate. If you never could afford to see the last levels of some of your favorite games, this is your chance.

I suspect that the low-resolution graphics and stilted animation will look hopelessly dated to younger gamers. Still, the imagination and creativity of the artists shines through, and many of them remain hard to put down.

A retro-loving gamer's dream come true, Capcom Classic Collection features 22 favorites from the legendary game company, and what a Capcom compilation be without a few Street Fighter games? This collection's biggest flaw is that the SF games here (Street Fighter 2, SF 2: Champion Edition, and SF 2: Hyper Fighting) have suffered the most because of the annoying loading times between fights. Not to mention that the Playstation's controler never really suited the SF control scheme, but when you get past all that, you'll find one of the best classic game compilations on the market today. There's some excellent games here, including 1942, Mercs, Forgotten Worlds, Final Fight, the Ghosts 'N Goblins series, Bionic Commando, and more; and for the most part, they all play as great as you'll remember. There's a ton of unlockable content and extras as well to keep you busy, but while as great as this compilation is, there are a few glaring omissions. First of all, where are the Strider games? The Strider series is one of the most renowned Capcom series alongside Street Fighter and Mega Man, and the fact that there are no Strider games here will leave you scratching your head. Also, how about the very first Street Fighter game? Or how about Puzzle Fighter or Darkstalkers? I would have rather seen any of them than the lackluster Pirate Ship Higemaru. Oh well, it says "Vol. 1" on the side of the case, so hopefully Capcom will roll out future volumes with the aforementioned games (and if you know Capcom, you know they have no quams about sequels). In any case, Capcom Classics Collection is still a must own for retro gaming lovers, and at the bargain price this package is all the sweeter.

First off the main reason I was excited about this release is for $20 you get three of the greatest games from the past ever well ok one game 2 upgrades of course I am talking about Street Fighter 2, Champion and Hyper edditions I spent so many quarters and money on these games growing up at the local 7-11 or party store. I was going to by the Street Fighter Aniversary but kept putting it off because it mixed all three together here you get all three separate from one another in all their glory. Also Ghosts N Goblins, Ghouls N Ghosts great Final Fight and many more well worth the money I must also thank Capcom for this disc I love it.

First a disclaimer - my review is not with the quality of games in this collection, but the quality of the ports. My reason for getting this collection is the fact that it includes the early SF2 versions (and to a lesser extent, Final Fight). The rest of the games (with a handful of exceptions) are probably too old to be included on the same disc (they date from early 1980's), but having them here probably doesn't matter much, one way or another.

First, the good: the graphics for most of the games (read on for the exceptions) are intact, and look as good as they did on the arcade. Unlike their early console predecessors (Genesis, SNES), images have not been scaled, and the games themselves play as they did on the original cabinets. If you have a wide-aspect ratio TV, you'll be playing the exact arcade versions of the games - if not, you can modify the aspect ratio so that it looks correct on a regular TV. The music is also completely intact and sounds great - while the remixed soundtrack is a poor attempt at best, it's off by default, so it's not a big deal.

The bad: the vertically-oriented games, which, on an arcade cabinet would be played on a 90-degree rotated screen, compensate for the lost girth by having some of the vertical space removed. This results in unfortunate placements of some of the HUD elements - for example, when playing 194x games, you'll find that the gauge partially obscures your plane.

The biggest gripe I have with this game, however, is the imbecilic way in which the controls are handled - in SF2 games, specifically. This takes away 35% of the enjoyment of the game, since it makes some characters almost unplayable. Not only are fireballs and dragon punches excruciatingly difficult to pull off, but even diagonal jumps are often impossible.
