    If there’s one takeaway to be had from the Capcom Beat ‘Em Up Bundle, it’s that genre-themed compilations aren’t the best way to repackage these classic titles.

    Irredeemably shallow but effortlessly entertaining, this unexpected tribute to a lost genre will make a beat ‘em-up fan of anyone.

    The games in the Capcom Beat ‘Em Up Bundle may be short, shallow and repetitive by nature, but these arcade classics are an important slice of gaming history and still make for a perfect high score wager between friends. In any case, for £17.99, it is an affordable catch up for those that are either interested in the history of the beat ’em up genre or fancy an interactive trip down memory lane.

    A good selection of classic beat'em ups that could have been even better with little effort.

    If you want to sit with friends for an evening and waste a few hours while getting wasted, this is a great way to do it.

    Although the seven games on offer are good examples of the fun, but shallow genre, it’s hard to shake the feeling that with a bit more attention – the kind Mega Man and Street Fighter received – this could have been another must have retro collection.

    This came out around the same time Nintendo started charging for online play, and while the blame’s on Capcom, the fact this was promoted in a Nintendo Direct makes the timing absolutely awful. At least on Switch, the Capcom Beat ‘Em Up Bundle is an online disaster.

    This game concept is great for coop gaming nights with friends!
    The intuitive controls with just two or three action buttons are inviting. We work together: two, three or four players cruise the streets, the fantasy realms and the planets to beat all evil guys, minions, bosses!
    There are seven Beat 'em Up games, Arcade versions made by Capcom in the '90s, to choose from (watch the trailer above). Especially The King of Dragons aged very well: the archetype of high fantasy! Five very distinct characters to play, amazing enemy variety, amazing fast changing scenery, spectacular bosses taken from mythology, level up system (!), an epic fantasy soundtrack... this really is all aspects of Beat 'em Up done right and worth 9 points!
    The other games are a joy to play, and offer each their own world / scenario from dangerous streets to planets with vibrant SCI-FI settings. But there is to admit: the age of the games shows here and there. Surprisingly Final Fight, when played in 2018 with today's gaming experience, annoys with throwing constantly the same roster of enemies at you throughout the stages. Even the placement of the enemy formations is sometimes all too randomly done. But of course the iconic character design and the fluid easy-to-get-into controls are still there and make the game enjoyable to this day.
