Never underestimate the power of a looping retro ditty. And those 8-bit and 16-bit sound effects are still superb, while the menu music is suitably exuberant.
This is a tough one to call, since there are 32 games to judge on their own merits. Overall, there's no denying the quality of Capcom's arcade artistry, and there's something to like about almost every game included here. Filters, frames, and cabinets offer some nice customisation options, too.
On the whole, there's a lot to like here, whether it's the Street Fighter Alpha games, Knights of the Round, Eco Fighters, Saturday Night Slam Masters, Mega Man -The Power Battle-, Super Gem Fighter -Mini Mix-, or the three Darkstalkers titles, there's something you'll love.
Had the Capcom Fighting Collection not only just come out, then this would feel like a far more robust library of games. As it is, so many are already included in that bundle that this one feels somewhat lacking. There are plenty of other Capcom games (the Final Fight sequels spring to mind) that could have been included here instead.
The exact same list as before. Earn loads of 'CASPO', play for up to 100 hours(!), reach level 20, clear a game, use all the features like rewind etc. Bit lazy, Capcom.
