As a previous reviewer pointed out, these games are most likely NOT for the teenagers of today. Most of them are too young to remember or weren't even BORN yet when most of these games were gracing the arcades. The kids today would undoubtedly regard these games as "dumb" or something. I just have to shake my head in mild wonder when I see kids look at "Namco Museum 50th Anniversary" and yawn with boredom over "Pac-Man" and "Ms. Pac-Man" presented there. Not having suffered through the days of the Atari 2600 like myself, they just can't appreciate having these classics in original arcade versions at home like I can.Read more ›
The Xbox 360 Capcom Digital Collection does have some of the same games. But only 8 of them compared to the 22 on this one!
1942 1943 and 1943 KAI (KAI is an updated version of 1943 eaxh game puts you in the pilots seat during WWII
FINAL FIGHT before Street Fighter there was Final Fight uncensored I think (well compared to the SNES version) Great beat em up
Ghosts n Goblins the first game in series of 3 where you play as the brave Sir Arthur
Forgotten Worlds A great shooter I had this on the megasrive (Genesis in the US) I have forgotten how hard this one is
Ghouls N Ghosts sequel to Ghosts N Goblins
Super Ghouls N Ghosts an updated version of the original GnG (I tihnk memory is a bit hazy)
SF II World Warrior Champion Editon and Hyper Fighting These games put Capcom on the map in the 90's and is the grand daddy of ALL fighting games.
The Down right Forgettable
Everything else on the disc (maybe thats just me though) I dodn't really care for the rest of the games selection. For 20 bucks you get quite a bit but I wish I had rented this first (I have already beaten Final Fight twice since getting this today) Some of these games are really showing there age though and will unfortunatly look even more rediculous once the next gen of consoles arrive. I can only recommend this as a rental for others I'm pretty sure I'll be trading this one in soon.
This collection has a number of great classics such as street fighter II, 1942, Final Fight, and ghosts and goblins. It also includes variations of those classics which were also released (1943, SFII Hyper edition, and Ghouls and Ghosts). Besides these games - which really can be called classics - the collection includes some other games which were fun, but nothing special - Mercs, Commando, Trojan, and Gunsmoke for example. These were games worth playing, but easily forgetable. This collection also has an option to clean up the graphics and sounds on some of the games, so you can play the original in a slightly tweaked version. Of course, you can play with the original game version if you're a purist. There is also an option to read a brief snippit of history for each game.
For the most part, what you see is what you get. With next gen-counsels coming out soon; these games look more and more obsolete. The only beef I had with the porting was with Street Fighter. The game load times is ridiculously long for a game that's almost 15 years old now. The controls also feel sluggish unresponsive, not at all like the original controls for SFII.
This collection contains "classics" that no one in America remembers. "Son Son", a side-scrolling shooter that came out in the early eighties is just one example. It also contains such throw-aways as Vulgus, Pirate Ship Higaru, and Exed Exes. These games lacked any innovation and were better off forgotten.
For $20 or so, this game is a fun distraction from the otherwise stagnant video game market.Read more ›
