Excerpt: If you’re dying for a Capcom Classics Collection, you should pick up the one subtitled Remixed , and not the subject of this review, the one subtitled Reloaded. That’s my best advice after having played both. Remixed not only has a more balanced group of quality titles, but Reloaded does itself and fans a grave disservice by bringing substandard emulations of its big names to the table.
Excerpt: It's official, I must have had superpowers in the late '80s and early '90s. How else could I have possibly completed Capcom's vertical shooter 1943 without breaking a sweat - let alone racking up thousands of pounds worth of debt in lost 10ps. Nowadays, when my only special skill is being able to adequately whistle the end of Sitting on the Dock of the Bay , I struggle to get off the second stage, and that's with infinite continues.
Excerpt: Capcom got it all wrong. This isn't an arcade compilation. It's actually a simulation of what it would have been like to have had a rich Daddy back in the 80's. Unlimited quarters... Lordy knows I never had enough of a budget to see the end of these games, so this collection is perfect for me. The last collection of Capcom games from this era was cracka-lackin', so expectations here may run a bit high. Not too high, but medium height.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: This is a great compilation on the whole - there are some oddities and poorer games on offer, but everything at least provides an adequate distraction, if only for ten minutes. But this is on the PSP, so ten minute distractions are ideal. The checkpoint save system is inspired and means the longer games can still be dipped into just like the others and progress won't be lost when you reach your bus stop. Also: handheld Streetfighter 2. Inspired.
Excerpt: Looking fondly back on the last thirty years of gaming, one can only express a profound sense of amazement when they notice the differences between portable consoles of the previous generations, and the current ones existing today. Full length three dimensional video games that you can play on-the-go are more common now than they’ve ever been.
