  1. This collection offers up a wide range of brawlers and shooters from days long gone, but sadly, not many of these are all that memorable.
  2. CCC Vol. 2 is only 20 bucks, which comes to $1 a game. Considering all of the classic arcade gameplay on this disc, it's an excellent value. We're not sure Capcom has enough material for yet another arcade collection, but if this is the last, then they'll have gone out on a high note.

    Sure, not everything here is a winner, but there's enough good stuff that the flops are a sort of bonus rather than a nuisance.

    With excellent high-level production values, superb emulation, and an easy to use interface, Capcom Classics Collection Volume 2 should please most retro Capcom fans.

    A superb package with great games and some truly inspired extras - and a real trip down memory lane for some of us. [Mar 2007, p.94]
  6. Overall, this is a none too shabby collection. The decision to buy will depend on your desire to have a true arcade version of the games and how sentimentally attached you are to each title.
  7. While I can understand the financial reasoning behind milking the Capcom back catalogue for two volumes, as a fan I'd much rather have had one all killer, no filler compilation with Street Fighter II, Ghost 'n Goblins, Commando, 1941 and Strider all in one place.

    Not an A-grade bundle, but fairly sturdy stuff for fans of the period. [Mar 2007, p.82]

    It's a real mixture of a couple of greats, some good, some not too good and a couple that are downright atrocious!

This package is mostly for fans of brawlers and action games. The ones that are in here are old, maybe not well known anymore, but VERY fun. This is a must own game. If you have a friend, clearing this games will be a good time. Full Review »

For one it hasFor anyone feeling a bit nostalgic or trying to track down some of the old classics this is certainly a worthy purchase. For one it has Strider, one of the great 16 bit games of that era. The 3 Wonders game is also quite fun and is actually 3 games in one( the first 2 of which are quite fun). 1941, Varth, and Eco Fighters are all very solid shooters as well. Full Review »

Great fun to play. However, it looks like this compilation was rushed out the door because all of my saves are corrupted. At first I thought it was my memory card, but 5 other randomly chosen games save to and load from the same card just fine, so it must be this game. This means that all my high scores and unlockables reset as soon as I turn off the console! I have returned this game for store credit, but will buy it again, if the corrupted saves problem is fixed in a later release. Full Review »
