Summary: There's plenty of "fun factor" in this collection of vintage CAPCOM titles. This will definitely send you down memory lane. The graphics look fabulous on my big flat screen using HDMI. While the gameplay hasn't changed from yesteryear, its nice to relive all those hours spent playing these titles. I just wished they had included some other classic titles, as I'm sure they had the room on the disc.
enough old school fun to keep you busy for months!

Summary: I'll be playing these for quite some time I think. I have only tested a few of the games but they look great and all the gameplay is spot on from what I remember in the arcades of my youth. I'm enjoying this collection very much. I bought it used, cheap... so that makes this title all that much sweeter!
Summary: Im a cheap guy at heart, so i look for value wherever i can. This collection has it. 8 games that would run you easily 2 or 3 times what the disc costs if you paid the price on XBox Live Arcade. I grabbed this just so i could have Street Fighter and 1943, getting the other games tossed in there was just icing on the cake. Quick, simple games to get into that dont eat your time. Sometimes that's all you want, to just drop in a game and go.
Summary: I remember playing 1942 in the arcade in a sit down booth with a joystick on the one side and bottons on the other, almost like I was sitting in a cockpit. It was my favorite game and the only reason I bought this game. SF was never really my thing, but my friends have enjoyed playing it. Final Fight is a good addition and puzzle fighter is addicting. I remember playing puzzle fighter for another older system that my brother had.

Summary: I'm happy I was able to pick this up at a discounted price- downloadable games on xbox live don't really go down in price online. You can find five year old games that are still full price, which is what makes this package a pretty good deal. I won't go into the review of the individual games, but I'm pretty satisfied overall with what this package.
Summary: I'm not exactly sure if these games run off the disc or get loaded in the system's HDD temporarily. Some games work flawlessly while others (like Rocketmen) seem off and tend to load too long and abruptly cut off spoken text during cut scenes. Not sure if the actual game is like that.
Pros: 8 xbl games at an amazingly cheap price. I'm pretty sure all games on this disc are listed on XBL for $10 or more still.
Cons: Half of the games are kinda lame half hearted reboots of classic Capcom franchises. Capcom should be ashamed they outsourced them to Backbone. Backbone is a terrible developer. Hope you have a friend to play online multiplayer with, because the lobbies for most of these games are dead as a doornail.
