    It is impossible not to recommend Capcom Beat ‘Em Up Bundle. There is so much joy packed in this compilation. The genre has definitely seen a resurgence as of late, but it is impossible to deny how good these classics are. If only Capcom had been able to figure out the licenses behind some of their more popular titles like Alien vs. Predator. Perhaps in the future, but for now this is the best place to perform jump kicks anywhere.

    Capcom Beat'em Up Bundle is definitely a collection to pick up if you're into the niche genre of beat'em up. It's so awesome to finally have the ability to play these games online with other players and relive the arcade days. Now, if only we could find some way for Capcom to pick back up the rights to Alien vs Predator and maybe... Cadillacs and Dinosaurs, hmmm...

    Capcom Beat ‘Em Up Bundle is another successful entry in Capcom’s recent efforts to bring more retro games back into the fold. It’s a solid experience whether you’re looking to relive the glory days of the arcade, or discover the types of games that cost your gaming predecessors all their coveted quarters. With seven different arcade brawlers in the game, there’s plenty to love if you’re just looking for a relaxing night of solo games. But bring a few friends into the fold, and you’ve got the makings of a solid game night.

    Whether you’ve played any of the games it contains before or not, you’re likely to find at least a couple that grab you and make the collection worthwhile.

    If you have fond memories of the arcade originals, you've probably already bought the Capcom Beat 'Em Up Bundle. If you haven't, then you most definitely should. For the money, Capcom Beat 'Em Bundle offers a nice little slice of arcade history in seven games, two of which you can play on console for the first time. What's not to like?

    This collection offers a nice selection of distinctly themed classic beat’em ups, including two console debut titles: Armored Warriors and Battle Circuit. It’s a shame that when playing online with more than two players the game’s framerate dramatically spikes, but with that to the side, there’s little to scoff at. When all is said and done, the Capcom Beat ‘Em Up Bundle is a must have for fans of the genre.

    While I am a fan of retro collections, this one is rather disappointing. The games itself are chosen well, but they also show with little to none mechanical progress over the years, why this genre is more or less extinct. And there is hardly enough bonus material to keep you happy, either.

    While this it isn’t the best collection of game’s ever there’s still some classic titles here that will no doubt satisfy a number of people. IWhile this it isn’t the best collection of game’s ever there’s still some classic titles here that will no doubt satisfy a number of people. I was very surprised to see that you could play the collection of game’s online and thankfully the online holds up really well which means the collection has replayability.
    The presentation side of the game is as retro as it could get and both the visuals and sound design bring back a lot of fond memories. Technically each game holds up really well throughout and the controls remain responsive at all times as well, which is great. Some of the game’s included in the collection aren’t bonified classics and there could’ve been better inclusions. While there is a decent amount of content available it still would’ve been nice to have had more options and classic information available. Once completed you’re highly unlikely to return back to the game’s in the collection because each game basically plays out the same way. The Capcom Beat ‘Em Up Bundle came out of the blue, but even though I had no prior knowledge of this collection I was still excited because Capcom has a lot of classic game’s in this genre. Thankfully there is a decent collection of game’s here for you to get to grips with and whilst it isn’t the best collection of all time with some noticeable absentees I still had a blast playing each game. The collection also threw up a few surprises as well and the best surprise was being able to play each game online. Without a doubt this online component does give the game some replaybility and I’m pleased to say that the online mode holds up well. In fact technically each game holds up really well and I was very impressed with the controls that have been implemented because they remain tight and responsive throughout each game. This then means that the Capcom Beat ‘Em Up Bundle gets a decent recommendation from me because it brings back a lot of fond memories and whilst it would’ve been nice to see a few more options and in some ways more recognised game’s you still end up getting very good value for your money.
