    If you have any love for the classic side scrolling Beat-em-Up's of Capcom's glorious back catalog then this is for you. Boasting a perfect version of the arcade game you find yourself picking a classic D & D archetype and battling wave after wave of classic enemies before a boss. Wash, rinse, repeat. Throw in some light RPG mechanics and loot and you have a game that is a little bit more then Final Fight with Magic.

    Speaking of Magic, it is marginally annoying as a melee player to constantly have the action frozen by the spell-casters, but it's little more than a mild inconvenience.

    The online features bring 4 player drop and drop out action, much like playing in an arcade back in the day. Achievements and challenge goals add to the feature set. For your £12 you get a lot of old school fun in a nice package.

    Your mileage with this game will probably vary wildly with your age. If you have never set foot in an arcade then skip it, but if you spent your formative years feeding Final Fight, Double Dragon and others with coins then this is money well spent.

    Remember to turn off the filters though, they make the core game look hideous. Stick with the classic sprites.

    I had never played these games before, and it's possible that those darn kids we all hear about these days might not enjoy the decidedly retro gameplay and so-bad-it's-good translation. On the other hand, if you've got an eye for classics that have aged better than fine wine and been given the premium porting treatment, I see no way you could go wrong picking this one up.

    Chronicles of Mystara is a must-have for any fan of the original arcade releases, or D&D fans in general. However, the charm of this package is going to be lost on anyone who wasn’t already sold on these games in the past.
