    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. AceGamez
    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. The multiplayer support is a great example of local wireless multiplayer gaming done well, and if you've got friends with the game you'll have hours of entertainment ahead of you.
  4. There's simply no getting away from the fact that the irritating reshuffle of titles from the console edition has left a sizeable hole in the appeal of this compilation, and the presence of a few too many relics best left buried does little to compensate.
  5. The original PS2 and Xbox versions of Capcom Classics Collection - which had an undeniably better selection of games - debuted at $19.99, yet this portable version is twice as expensive. We're guessing Sony's PSP publishing rules have more to do with this than Capcom's bank account does, but it sucks either way.
  6. A little light on true 'classics' and over-reliant on shooters but excellently converted to PSP, which should at least delight the old-skool crowd.
  7. 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).
  8. 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.
  10. With a sharp game list and fantastic multiplayer support, Capcom Classics Collection Remixed is, all around, a very good compilation.
  11. 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.
  12. 75
    While many of my favorite Capcom games are represented, there were several games amongst the oddball ones that I found to be incredibly entertaining.
  13. It just goes to show that true classic games will always be fun, no matter what the next generation comes up with.
  14. 74
    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.
  15. 65
    Unfortunately, it’s not as portable as it could be with stretched load times and no save stat, and the collection in general is not as robust as the PS2/Xbox version.
  16. 80
    A mix of average to good games, along with some classic stinkers that should have probably faded away in to obscurity.
  17. 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.
  18. A clutch of the titles have stood the test of time surprisingly well, but most — particularly the side- or vertical-scrolling shoot-em- ups — are so far past their prime it’s laughable, and many are very similar.
  19. 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.
  20. There is a lot of retro fun here and if you only carry one UMD with you this is as good as any to keep you entertained.
  21. Compilations generally don't do well, but Capcom gives PSP owners quite a treat with the decent emulation of truly great classics.
  22. Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    Even if you never play half the games on offer (and you won't), the inclusion of genuine classics means this lives up to its billing. [July 2006, p.89]
  23. There's enough quality here to keep retro-heads entertained for some time.
  24. Electronic Gaming Monthly
    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]
  25. Game Informer
    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]
  26. Play Magazine
    Capcom is billing the PSP version of their classics collection a "remix" but really, it's a whole new album. [May 2006, p.58]
  27. 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.
  28. Games Master UK
    We just wish Capcom would release an uber-collection across all formats instead of these half-baked efforts. [July 2006, p.81]
  29. Play UK
    Worth the memories. [Issue 141, p.110]
  30. If you grew up with these games during the 80's then Capcom Classics Collection Remixed is an essential purchase, purely for nostalgic reasons but also to remember just how tough games were back then.
  31. PSM Magazine
    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]
  32. 70
    Realizing just how damn hard Strider gets towards the end and of course just how generic the original Street Fighter game is compared to the sequel are reason enough to purchase this collection.
  33. PSM2 Magazine UK
    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]
  34. Official U.S. Playstation Magazine
    All of the ports are about as perfect as perfect gets. [May 2006, p.92]
  35. Some of the game choices clearly could've been avoided, but, otherwise, you've got coin-op gold in the palm of your hand.
  36. Unfortunately, the line-up is just as likely to annoy retro fans as please them, with many of these 20 games from the late '80s offering little more than curiosity value. Some were poor-quality clones when they were originally released and today are unplayable.
  37. While there are some cool view modes and the front-end is nice, you’d have to be quite a die-hard to shell out forty bucks for Final Fight, Strider, Street Fighter and a bunch of stuff no one even liked in the 80s.

    "Capcom Classics Collection Remixed" was not very good, I did not enjoy any game or caught my attention.

    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 »
