  • Summary: Capcom Classics Collection Remixed provides quality entertainment that delves deep into Capcom’s history, offering players more depth and gameplay challenges. Play this latest cache of classics in several aspect ratios including normal, stretch or, depending on the title, its original vertical orientation. Fully customizable controls enhance the gaming experience by allowing the reassignment of the analog stick to accommodate vertical games. Enjoy the timeless hits of yesteryear with the wireless capabilities the portable system has to offer such as joining no-fuss multiplayer games and downloading music. Players will need to be pried away from this game as the multitude of bonus materials will have them glued to the system wanting more. The 20 games in this collection include the following: 1941, Avengers, Block Block, Captain Commando, Magic Sword, Quiz and Dragons, Street Fighter, Strider, Three Wonders and Varth. [Capcom] Expand

    In an age where Nintendo feel it is fair to repackage individual SNES games and sell them as full price releases on the GBA, this anthology is undoubtedly fantastic value for money and is one of the most convincing arguments for owning a PSP yet seen. Utterly essential.
  2. Featuring a different assortment of classics than the consoles' Capcom Collection, Remixed even features the first "Street Fighter", which isn't always easy to come by. [May 2006, p.111]
  3. One of the best examples of how to build a compelling collection of arcade games for a handheld, one that works for both the gamer and the publisher.

    With excellent high-level production values, superb emulation, and an easy to use multiplayer interface, Capcom Classics Collection Remixed should definitely please most retro company fans.
  5. Compilations generally don't do well, but Capcom gives PSP owners quite a treat with the decent emulation of truly great classics.
  6. The PSP's unwieldly d-pad and screen blur hurt, too. Even with these flaws, Remixed remains a mostly nifty blast from the past. [Jun 2006, p.87]
  7. Don't be fooled by the nostalgia factor - these games are tired and outdated. That you can put them in your pocket and play them anywhere doesn't actually make them any more fun. [June 2006, p.80]

    Wow... really, wow. I bought two copies for the family and we've been playing all weekend. Game share would have been nice.

    Sweeeet!!! (^-^) All the games were kewl, except Avengers and Street Fighter. I especially liked 1941 (I think its better than 1942 series, but shorter) and Final Fight (seems more true to the arcade and much better and complete than the Gameboy Advance version). It also included one of my favorite games, Sidearms (well time to pack up the ol' Turbo grafx). =P (Capcom Collection Remix 2??? Please , Please, Please!!!) Expand

    Bug kudos to Capcom for making this a very different collection than the original, console Capcom Classics. Of course, that does mean quite a bit of compromise. For one thing, this doesn't include the three excellent ports of Street Fighter 2 from the console version. Instead, Collections Remixed has the original Street Fighter which, while a great novelty for people like me who love the SF fanchise but have never been able to play the first game, is a very clunky game that I can't see playing too much of. Other than that, though, this collection is probably the best classics collection on PSP so far. Sure, some of the games may be a little underwhelming, but then you boot up Captain Commando (still the best beat em up after all these year, IMO), Strider, Street Rumbler, 1941, or Final Fight and play first hand the very definitions of Classic. And unlike the rather shoddy Midway Arcade Extended Play, every single game here allows you the option of three different screen sizes, so you aren't stuck if you feel the graphics are too stretched out or too small. Crazy good PSP action! Expand

    Great compilation for nostalgic gamers. My favourite games are: 1941, Vart, Three Wonders and Mega Twins, Magic Sword. With other interesting games: Black Tiger, Captain Commando, Bionic Comando, Last Duel, Strider, Forgotten Worlds, Legendary Wings, SideBd Arms. Last Duel. And some more modern: Other good games are Blck Tigerm Strider, Block Block is a disappointing Arkanoid clone, because of VERY difficult control. Street Fighter can't compete with old nor actual fightes , so it is a filler. Avengers, Quiz and Dragons The Speed Rumbler, Section Z didn't caugh me. More varied than CCC Reloaded, Remixed have some games more modern, some worse. Expand
