"You can't beat me with paramecuim alone."

I picked the Capcom Classics Collection up last night and so far I'm impressed. Of the games I've tried so far the ports seem to be spot-on. Not only are the games ported well but there are plenty of extras such as a great deal of art and character bios you can unlock. For example, I played through Capcom's ode to alternative lifestyles, Final Fight. Not only did Roxy and Poison show up in your quest to wrestle strange men in public restrooms but Poison's bio even listed the correct gender. Most of the conditions for unlocking the extras are obvious things such as beating the game but one of the requirements for FF was that you had to eat Eddie E's gum. I was hoping for a bit more information about the programmers for the games -and maybe a listing of the drugs they were on when they created Lost/Forgotten Worlds- but for $19.99 I can't complain.

Oh, and the loading screen when a new game initially boots up features Zangief spinning. I like this compilation.

Some say the version of Bionic Commando is a bit different from the arcade, do you confirm?
I already bought the PS1 compilation, so I won't buy it again even some games were added. It's obvious Capcom is milking these games dry. Why don't they take a handful of them and expand them so they meet today's lifespan requirements, by adding new levels, or new characters? The best thing of course would be to port them to the Revolution and implement a Nunchak control -- what a blast it'd be then.

I just got it also and its awsome. Namco should be seriously embarrassed with their 50th Museum though. Its pathetic.

Yeah, I second that. In fact, I think Capcom should make lots of remakes/conversions/upgradings of those classic games we all know, something similar to what they did in Strider 2 for PSOne.


Edit: Wow, now my name is red and it has a shadow behind...so that's what happens when reaching 500 posts?

I haven't played enough of the arcade version of BC to be able to spot any translation errors. Can anyone else help out? Also, has anyone tried things like Cody's infinite or other little glitches from the original arcade games?

Since this is the first time that several of these games have been released as home ports in the US so I considered this a good buy. Compliations can either be seen as a nostalgic overview of a company or as a cheap money grab using past glories. Since I'm happy with this collection I'm going with the first choice on this one. As an aside the $19.99 I paid for this set is the same as the list price that Nintendo put on the games in the Classic NES Series they put out on the GBA several moons back so there are much lousier deals out there when it comes to retro games.

She's still the best looking man in Capcom's character roster.
