Review - Great collection of mid '80s, early '90s Capcom Coin Op.

This compilation includes:

1943 Kai
Eco Fighters
Exed Exes
Ghosts 'n Goblins
Ghouls 'n Ghosts
Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts
Gun Smoke
The King of Dragons
Knights of the Round
Pirate Ship Higemaru
Street Fighter II
Street Fighter II: Champion Edition
Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting

The ports seem to be emulated, and this is particularly visible in the conversion of Ghouls'n'Ghosts which is plagued by flickering which is normally absent. Shooters such as Eco Fighters finally get a home release, while other classic favorites such as Mercs, The King of Dragons, Knights of the Round and Street Fighter II play very well on the PSP screen.

There are several video modes to choose from, which mainly scale the graphics in or out. The effect is pixellated though. The tate option is also included and is probably the reason why some of these games are best played on the PSP screen. Tilting it to play vertically scrolling games is much easier than actually doing this on a real TV or monitor set up!

Bottom line: a decent compilation, and a great way to learn about the history of one of the most prolific and influential arcades software houses. 7/10
