    Capcom Arcade Cabinet is a fine example of a true classic collection. The DLC packs and a few strange games may scare some away from getting this one.

    The Capcom Arcade Cabinet is a premium way to enjoy Capcom arcade classics. While the price might not be readily accepted with the younger generation of gamers that missed the arcade heyday, the package certainly brings enough new features (like online play and leaderboards) to get any gamer excited.

    Capcom Arcade Cabinet is just a part of a much bigger collection of old school goodness that can be fun for nostalgia's sake.

    Capcom has made a flawless emulator for the 80’s arcade games where you can choose for yourself which games you want to include in the collection. If you have fond memories of any of the games in Capcom Arcade Cabinet I recommend you to buy that title individually though, as some of the games haven’t aged well and are way too hard and monotone to be worth your time. Also the price is a bit steep.

    The HD treatment, online multiplayer, casual mode for newbies, and extra goodies to unlock ensure plenty of playtime for each of the various titles.

    There are several hidden gems in here, so you might find some interesting surprises. As a collection it's as good as we expected it to be, but taking into account the price of the individual games, you should probably go for those you really need to complete your collection.

    Capcom Arcade Cabinet presents a good opportunity to reminisce the works of one of the most prolific developers in the history of videogames. Price will remain decent if we purchase specific packs instead of the whole lot, and this is the best option for those eager to go down the memory lane.

    It's not really possible at this point to be wowed by an arcade collection, but at least Capcom Arcade Cabinet puts a layer of shine on some of these. They've also dug a little deeper in the archives than usual. Still a bit pricey for nostalgia.

    The whole ‘turning your console into an HD arcade’ feature is a hogwash (pixels look like paving slabs and there are black stripes on the sides of the screen), but it’s a nice blast from the past. [CD-Action 06/2013, p.65]
  10. Like a crack dealer in council flats the first hit is free, then the really good stuff is gonna cost you depending on what you want. However, it’s a thrill you’ve had before, and unless you’re really pining for the past (and don’t have all these old titles on your myriad other handheld and home devices) you can leave these alone as they’re presented as arcade perfect with no upgrades. [May 2013, p77]

    Really fantastic interface, beautiful music (lobby), and design brings back all my fond memories of Capcom's glorious arcade days. It includes Black Tiger for free which is nice. I haven't bought any of the other games yet, but they need to bring out all their CPS-1 games to this hope they do soon, really want Forgotten Worlds, Ghouls'nGhosts, Magic Sword, Punisher, Captain Commando. Sharing highscores over the world is pretty sweet. Full Review »
