Capcom Classics Collection: Reloaded review (PSP)
2 July 2008
Excerpt: Amazingly, I remember finishing Ghouls ‘N Ghosts, and Super Ghouls ‘N Ghosts in their heydays. I would have two questions for my old self were able to ask him now, a good one, and an even better one:
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.
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 has released quite a few compilations of its old arcade lineup over the years, but it's only recently that it's started to get good. The Capcom Classics Collection series has appeared on consoles, and now it's in its second edition on the PSP with Capcom Classics Collection Reloaded.
Pros: Good display and control options, game sharing support for one-disc multiplayer
Cons: Imperfect emulation, not every game in the package is a winner
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.
