Nogstalgia is good for some playing once a year, but that's it.

Summary: This is a compilation of Capcom arcade games. I was pretty disappointed when I discovered it's not the home games like I grew up with this. The arcade games just lack real depth that the home versions had. This compilation might contain $5,000 worth of quarter eating fun, but not even the online leader boards will keep you coming back for more than nostalgia. A lot of the games feel very stale and clunky by today's standards.
Summary: To be honest I bought this game mainly for Final Fight. I was unfamiliar with alot of the other games aside from Gun smoke, Final Fight and The Street Fighter games that are included. But there really isn't a bad game in the bunch. I'm becoming a fan of these compellation titles as there is a great more variety (obviously.) then there is on single game disk.
Summary: I like old arcade games, though i'm too young to fully appreciate them, and i feel this puts the best (aside from a few unneeded ones) of the arcade expierence without having to go back to the crowded area and wait hours on end to play one game. That's one thing i'm glad i didn't have go through. Okay, anyway, this game has 22 arcade(and most of you should appreciate them) games, some of which are very similar to one another.
Summary: This compilation from Capcom contains no less than 22 games some great some good and some just forgettable. I like the fact that they include a file for each game that contains artwork tips and music and cast profiles (some of this is only accessable after meeting certain tasks) Ok on to the games THE GREAT 1942 1943 and 1943 KAI (KAI is an updated version of 1943 eaxh game puts you in the pilots seat during WWII FINAL FIGHT before Street Fighter there was Final Fight...
More Old School Classics that We Children of the 80's Just LOVE!

Summary: Here is another great compilation of more old arcade coin-op games playable on the Xbox. For a mere $19.99 you can enjoy these 22 classic games at home, in their original arcade-perfect versions! The games presented here range from 1984 to 1992. For me, "Final Fight" was worth the price of admission all by itself, as I had not played this version since it left the arcades around 1992 or so. Ever since then I was stuck with the heavily censored SNES version, until now.
Summary: I'm old enough to remember when most of these games came out, so I was excited to see how well they ported over to x-box. THE GOOD: This collection has a number of great classics such as street fighter II, 1942, Final Fight, and ghosts and goblins. It also includes variations of those classics which were also released (1943, SFII Hyper edition, and Ghouls and Ghosts).
Summary: Exactly what the title says...a collection of classics. And who doesn't love a good classic every once in a while? This collection of games made for a modern XBOX is a dream come true, allowing you to access all of the games you used to love back in the day but without the difficulty of finding them or trying to get them to play.
Summary: This is an awesome collection of games. All together this 'game' or collection is perhaps the best game for current generation consoles IMO. Go ahead and laugh! This is because most modern games are not fun and lack gameplay. The only awesome game I've played from current generation consoles is Ninja Gaiden. These are REAL games from the GOLDEN ERA of ARCADE. IMO some of these old games should be made modern!
Summary: I bought these titles Capcom and Taito for two games Rastan Saga and Final Fight- both classics - however there are plenty of other diamonds amongst the rough- Bubble Bobble, Rainbow Islands and Volfeld(like Qix) that are worth the price alone- the mad thing about these games is you cant complete them - they are just too hard...A great trip down memory lane. Well worth it-if you used to go into Dayvilles in Birmingham ! Just need Rtype and Vulcan Venture now!
