    Unless you have no interest in these arcade titles at all, CAPCOM ARCADE is worth picking up for its nostalgic value alone and the ability to buy the games you do like is a nice extra.

    But on the whole, this is a good download I recommend to any retro gamer. No risk up-front – and if you like, no risk ever.

    Ultimately, whether you enjoy this App will depend on how thick your rose tinted glasses are and whether you can put up with some changes in control system to take the touch screen into account or stomach the price point for some of the less technical games.

    The emulation of each game isn't completely spot-on, but they're all really playable and the assortment of control options is a nice touch.

    A good idea executed poorly, Capcom Arcade offers little worthwhile gameplay.
