The most common type of game in the Classics Collection
are shooter games. You’re running or flying around shooting everything in sight while avoiding the blanket of enemy figures and bullets that will kill you in one hit if you so much as graze them. These are games like 1942
, Legendary Wings
, and Gunsmoke
Then you have your old school platformer games. They have you running and jumping around trying to avoid the bad guys while also avoiding the all too common pits and holes that will kill you instantly. Some of the ones offered here are Bionic Commando, Ghosts ‘N Goblins, Ghouls ‘N Ghosts, and Super Ghouls ‘N Ghosts.
Capcom really found its arcade niche with its fighting games though, and Collection offers two of the best. You have Final Fight which is one of the most beloved side scrolling beat’em ups (in the vein of Double Dragon) of all time. And, of course, no Capcom collection is without the obligatory Street Fighter inclusion and Classics Collection offers the three true classics, Street Fighter II, Street Fighter II: Championship Edition, and Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting. As an added bonus they even offer what they call “Street Fighter II” deluxe which will have any fans drooling; it offers a multiplayer mode where you can pick from any iteration of all Street Fighter II characters from all three games. Because, as any fan will tell you, Street Fighter II Guile is not the same as Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting Guile.
