    It just could've gone a little further to include additional games from the era. [Dec 2005, p.132]
  2. It may not always be pretty, and some online play would've been nice, but for older gamers looking to revisit their misspent childhood down the local arcade, and younger gamers searching for a lesson in gaming history, this is worth snapping up.
  3. There’s no one title that makes the package an absolute must, but if you want an arcade-perfect (and multiplayer) Street Fighter II: Champion Edition, you’ve come to the right place.

    It's a solid collection of some of Capcom's best, if you can get over the various emulation issues, however minor they may be.

    Of the 22 titles that this collection boasts, only a handful of them are worth shelling out your hard earned cash for.
  6. If you can get past the dated graphics and sound in many of the games, you may discover that the gameplay is still as dastardly as ever.

    A nice enough - but very brief - trip down memory lane, which would be a better value stripped down and bundled as an extra with a more modern game, or on PSP. [Dec 2005, p.124]

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. Full Review »

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.
