  • Summary: Capcom Classics Collection takes players back to the days of break dancing and waiting in endless arcade lines to see how long they can make their coveted quarter last. Spanning over 10 years of Capcom history, this anthology contains hundreds of hours of gameplay with treasured favorites including the WWII-style plane assault of '1942', defeating Metro City street gangs in 'Final Fight', rescuing Princess Guinevere against zombies and demons in 'Ghosts 'n Goblins', the unforgettable title 'Commando', plus 18 other classics that everyone grew up with! All of these titles can be played in either single or two player modes while experiencing a bountiful of bonus features such as remixed soundtracks, original art and playing tips, just to name a few. Experience more than 20 groundbreaking and revolutionary games of their time on one disk. [Capcom] Expand

  1. A sure bet for old school gamers and for the youngsters who never had a chance to experience these game in the arcades - and the price is unbeatable. Highly recommended.
  2. This collection is possibly the most remarkable of its kind to come along. The sheer quality of titles, which range from classic shooters like "Legendary Wings," to notable action titles such as "Ghouls 'n Ghost" and "Commando," raises the benchmark - and consumer expectation - of what a collection such as this can bring to the table.
  3. It should make the developers of these games feel proud to know that nearly two decades later their titles are better than most of the new stuff being released.

    One of the best compilation discs on the store shelves.
  5. There are more good quality games in this compilation than in most others so if you see a handful of games that interest you, by all means get your hands on this as you'll likely be exposed to another handful of great games.
  6. While this might leave Street Fighter fans scratching their heads, any package with Forgotten Worlds, Commando, Gun.Smoke, and Final Fight in it is easily worth the price of admission.

    Sure Street Fighter II is here, but if you’re a hardcore gamer, you probably already own at least one version of that. That means the number of actual, playable classics on this disc is reduced to just Final Fight, Forgotten Worlds, and Mercs. Do you really want to buy this disc just for those three?

    Easily worth the $20 for full arcade versions of Gunsmoke, Final Fight, and 3 Street Fighters. A few clunkers you'll probably abandon, but include 1942 + 1943, Ghosts & Goblins + Ghouls & Ghosts, not to mention Legendary Wings! C'mon! One of the best old school compilations I've ever bought.

    First of all, it's more than a little annoying that some of the best classic games (Like Captain Commando, which I'd vote for for best brawler ever) aren't included here, yet are in the trailer for the PSP version! Sure, I'll get that too, but I want to play it NOW! Otherwise, if you've got a friend who's into shooters (1943) brawlers (Final Fight) or fighting games (Street Fighter Deluxe Vs), your weekend's pretty much all planned out. Expand
