    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.

    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.
  3. Capcom Classic Collection Remix features some of Capcom's greatest games (Strider), some of their worst (Avengers), some that have been completely forgotten (Street Fighter), and one that makes absolutely no sense what so ever (Quiz & Dragons).
  4. The variety of games is far better this time around that it was on their first PSP collection, Reloaded, and the overall quality of the selections is quite high.

    Fans of classic games -- or anyone who has ever longed to save the world by answering trivia about the Golden Girls, really -- can't afford to miss it.
  6. With a sharp game list and fantastic multiplayer support, Capcom Classics Collection Remixed is, all around, a very good compilation.
  7. The disc may only have six or seven legitimate classics on it, but those six games truly are milestones that stand the test of time.

    While many of my favorite Capcom games are represented, there were several games amongst the oddball ones that I found to be incredibly entertaining.
  9. It just goes to show that true classic games will always be fun, no matter what the next generation comes up with.
  10. 80
    A mix of average to good games, along with some classic stinkers that should have probably faded away in to obscurity.
  11. 80
    While some may moan about the "twitch," "cheap," or "shockingly similar" gameplay that you just can't get away with these days, arcade purists and those seeking a legal way to play an outstanding array of Capcom's late '80s offerings should revel in this collection.
  12. It also receives high marks for the sheer amount of games made available--20 in all--at a suggested MSRP of $30 makes this game worthy of attention to the casual PSP gamer, and a must-have for any classic/retro gamer looking for a game that will get a lot of playtime on their PSP.

    Factor in a slick presentation, sweet unlockables, and Wi-Fi multiplayer for many games, and it's a must-have PSP release. [May 2006, p.106]
  14. Game Informer
    85
    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]
  15. Play Magazine
    85
    Capcom is billing the PSP version of their classics collection a "remix" but really, it's a whole new album. [May 2006, p.58]
  16. The Classics Collection Remixed might not contain the same blockbuster lineup of its console version but it's still a rock-solid assortment of games.
  17. Official U.S. Playstation Magazine
    90
    All of the ports are about as perfect as perfect gets. [May 2006, p.92]
  18. Some of the game choices clearly could've been avoided, but, otherwise, you've got coin-op gold in the palm of your hand.

    Great compilation for nostalgic gamers. My favourite games are: 1941, Vart, Three Wonders and Mega Twins, Magic Sword. With other interesting 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. Full Review »

    Bug kudos to Capcom for making this a very different collection than the original, console Capcom Classics. Of course, that does mean quite a 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! Full Review »

    Sweeeet!!! (^-^) All the games were kewl, except Avengers and Street Fighter. I especially liked 1941 (I think its better than 1942 series,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!!!) Full Review »
