Never to be left out when it comes to
beating a dead horse
stealing your money
/delivering the goods on past franchises, Capcom
is getting in on the retro kick by releasing Capcom Classics Collection Reloaded
, which is based on the PS2 version, Oct. 24.
The game stuffs nearly 20 of Capcom's greatest arcade games, like Street Fighter II
and Ghost 'N Goblins
, onto one tiny UMD, and IGN
recently got their grubby little mitts on a copy and thought it was a pretty solid title, giving it an 8.0
While they had generally nothing but good things to say about the collection, they did note that "the game does run into the same noticeable flicker and aliasing issues present in the PS2 disc (in all the shooters), while the transparency effects are hindered by some obvious interlacing troubles."
Aside from the obvious things like how well the games play, a classics collection really benefits from additional and unlockable content, and Capcom didn't skimp out here. "In fact, there are almost 900 different collectibles that can be uncovered over the course of your play-through, and an interesting slot machine mechanic is used to find them (you're awarded tokens for playing through individual games which can then be gambled with to unlock secrets," IGN wrote.
They close by saying, "Reloaded
is a solid PSP anthology that's better than its predecessor and one I'd easily recommend for old-school gaming fans everywhere." Mark me down for being totally excited for this one. Knights of the Round
is one of my all-time favorite beat 'em ups, and to have it available on the go, has me giddy like a school girl.
