Capcom Classics Collection Vol. 2 review

At a dollar per game, it's hard to go wrong with Capcom's latest collection of golden (and a few bronze) oldies

Rounding out the package are novelties like the trivia game Quiz and Dragons (complete with a special new Capcom-themed version) and lame obscurities like Block Block and Last Duel. As with any retropack, they can't all be winners, but the spiffy to iffy ratio is pretty good in this one.

As mentioned, the presentation is solid, but could be better. The progressive scan feature is nice, but it still doesn't recreate the pristine low-res graphics of the original arcade machines. If you don't have an HDTV, then the games'll look even yuckier - they were never meant to be seen this way. Anyway, aside from that, everything looks and sounds pretty accurate, and the unlockable cheats, art galleries, and game histories are nice rewards for your skill.
