    Get a friend with a PSP to pick the game up as well and you'll see why "Super Puzzle Fighter II" destroyed lives when it released originally.
  2. If you're new to the land of Puzzle Fighter (or Buster Bros.) it's worth checking out, and if you've played them all before back in the day it's still worth checking out. As long as you enjoy the old-school puzzle games, you'll enjoy this one.
  3. For puzzle game addicts, this is going to be a necessary purchase, but wait for the price to drop significantly.

    This one's for Super Puzzle Fighter freaks only.
  5. For £20 we’d hope for a few more games, with greater variety and a slightly slicker presentation. Definitely one for Capcom nostalgists.
  6. If puzzle games are your thing, this collection is worth it just for Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo. It’s an excellent variation on a proven formula.
  7. Not every game on this disc is a classic. [May 2007, p.85]

    If it's your only option, then Capcom Puzzle World provides one of the most comprehensive Super Puzzle Fighter II experiences for you.
  9. And unless you're a SPF fanatic, we'd advise waiting for the inevitable download to be offered, as Capcom Puzzle World isn't a compelling enough product to trade for thirty hard-won dollars.
  10. Frequent freeze-ups and faulty controls hurt this otherwise decent package, which can only be recommended to the most hardcore "Puzzle Fighter" fanatics.

    The new modes and wireless multiplayer are as sexy as Chun-Li's squatty, super-deformed legs, but deciding whether to drop $30 for an old-ass puzzle game and a few rejects may be a losing fight.
  12. Overall, this is more of a game to snag out of the bargain bin than buy new. [Apr 2007, p.52]
  13. While Capcom Puzzle World doesn't deliver as much gaming goodness as it could, the great implementation of Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo on the PSP is really worth the price of admission.

    While this version of "Super Puzzle Fighter II" is available for the first time on North American shores, it simply isn't enough to make you want to drop the dough to pick it up.
  15. 50
    As a stand-alone release, Puzzle World basically consists of one very good (though very dated) puzzler and a handful of boring filler material.
  16. Sadly the world has moved on, and so have our gaming tastes. [Mar 2007, p.120]

    It's all well and good banging on about games that defined childhood gaming experiences, but essentially what does an 80s kid from North London know when he's horribly sunburnt and tipsy from a few sips of Sangria? That was then, and sadly for Capcom Puzzle World, this is now.
