Excerpt: This title should have been called, "All The Quarters You Never Had," to signify how hard it was to beat these old games with the pocket change I could plead out of Mom or Dad back in the Eighties.

superb compilation to enjoy with the release of Capcom Classic Collection
Remixed for the PSP. This latest release includes more than 17 classic titles
ranging from the obscure to the sublime with a consistently high level of
quality and few duds.
Excerpt: As most people know, Capcom has a rich and plentiful history of games,
ranging from endless franchises to one-shots. From its start with

Gamers looking for a great collection of arcade classics to enjoy on the go should look no further than Capcom Classics Collection Remixed for the PSP.
Excerpt: Any compilation of old arcade games is depending on one of two things to propel sales: nostalgia or value. Capcom's recent release of Capcom Classics Collection for the Xbox and PS2 combined both of these and made the $19.99 price a ridiculous bargain. It included some heavy hitters from Capcom's venerable arcade lineup including Commando, 1942, Ghosts N Goblins, Mercs, Final Fight , and three different versions of Street Fighter II , just to name a few.
Summary: Capcom Classics Collection Remixed features some of Capcom's greatest games (Strider), some of their worst (Avengers), some that have been completely forgotten (Street Fighter), and one that makes absolutely no sense what so ever (Quiz & Dragons). This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on. However, that does not always apply to classic/retro games.
