Capcom Classics Collection: Volume 2
contains a fairly large list of games, all with a wide variety of gameplay types. In the collection, youíll find everything from arcade hits like Street Fighter
and, one of my favorites, 1941
, down to little-known titles like Last Duel and Quiz & Dragons. In fact, the latter is one of the strangest games that Iíve seen in a long time. It combines RPG elements with trivia. Yes. Trivia.
There are 20 games in all, which help bring the old arcade experience home. Iím happy to say that there is something for everyone, including both single- and multi-player games. And while the games stay true to their originals, you can unlock bonus content, and even learn a bit of the history behind the games. One extremely great feature with Volume 2 is that you can save your game at any moment, and when you reload your save, youíll be exactly in the same position as you were when you left. Now donít you wish you could have had that option at the arcade when your mom dragged you away from Street Fighter kicking and screaming?
I have to say that Iíve been around the gaming community for over 20 years now, but there are titles in Volume 2 that I have never even heard of. This comes to be a bit of a disappointment, hoping that some other Capcom titles (like Mega Man) would be included in this multi-pack game. As is, there are only a handful -- maybe 6 or 7 of them -- of widely-known games. While some of the little-known games do have a bit of fun factor in them, most of the titles in the disc will likely only be played a few times because they just lack the draw that most good games contain. Overall, Volume 1 may have had more of a punch when it comes to a larger number of great games being included.
