    A great collection of old Capcom classics. For around $40 you get 32 games ranging from the very early days up to early 2000's titles like Progear. What you get are mostly great entries, but there is some unnecessary overlap with 3 versions of Street Fighter 2, and the variety of games basically boils down to platforming, shmups, fighting, and beat em ups with an emphasis on shmups andA great collection of old Capcom classics.

    The game modes available are really fun, and give a score-chasing element like you'd get if you were actually at the arcade. This is aided by the presentation of each game on a cabinet of your choosing, with options to change filters, cabinet type, or regular screen presentation with border images.

    Some of the earlier games have poor scaling, not quite filling up as much screen real estate as they should, and I've heard some games have some moderate emulation issues, but as a relatively casual player I didn't notice any issues with the vast majority of the games.

    Overall, a great collection of games with a few issues, and at a pretty reasonable price even before any sales. Give it a shot.

    Overall, Capcom Arcade Stadium is a very good package filled with brilliant games, each updated with modern functionality. It doesn’t rival the quality of original hardware or the likes of M2’s sublime individual ports of arcade masterworks as seen with the release of Esp.Ra.De Psi, but at £30 for 32 games, it is well worth the price, warts and all.

    Capcom Arcade Stadium is the best way to play a few of Capcom’s arcade classics. It’s clear a lot of love went into making sure these games were emulated perfectly and to recreate the atmosphere of a bustling arcade. Whatever you want to play here, you can’t go wrong.

    While definitely a niche title, Capcom Arcade Stadium is perfect for those looking for a classic arcade experience. It’s a wonderful old-school arcade simulator featuring 32 different titles with a ton of options to adjust everything from visual appearance to in-game settings. Local multiplayer and online tournaments and leaderboards keep you engaged and make this worth every token.
