Capcom Fighting Collection - Review



OUR RATING: 9/10


The Capcom Fighting Collection, as its name clearly indicates, is a collection of fighting games from Capcom, most of them originally released in Japan and later brought to the Western market by public acceptance.



This is a somewhat special collection, since it is aimed at that great public of fighting games, and what better than some classics? I must warn fans of the famously dark Darkstalkers, this is your time.


For those who aren't aware yet, the following titles are included in the Capcom Fighting Collection:

  • Hyper Street Fighter II: The Anniversary Edition

  • Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors

  • Night Warriors: Darkstalkers' Revenge

  • Vampire Savior: The Lord of Vampire

  • Vampire Hunter 2: Darkstalkers' Revenge

  • Vampire Savior 2: The Lord of Vampire

  • Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo

  • Super Gem Fighter Mini Mix [Pocket Fighter]

  • Cyberbots: Full MeRed Earth



For fans of old-school fighting games, this collection is a godsend. These games can be played online or locally, plus they have added an achievement system. Options in combat include a full move list, controller customization, quick save/load and the ability to change wallpapers, and display filters.



You can tell they just how much love Capcom has put into this collection with all the options. It even has an option for new or novice players, it helps them with the difficulty, even some games have options where you can perform special moves just by pressing a button.


Then you have The Museum, which is a space where you find lots of illustrations and development materials from the different video games. It also has unpublished art that has never been shown before. And a lot of recorded music tracks. This will definitely benefit the most veterans and collectors.



Talking about visual fidelity, it's not exactly a modern remake but still, everything looks as crisp as you would want it. And it is completely faithful to the original visuals, while running perfectly on modern-day PCs.


It wouldn't be an overstatement to say that Capcom has done an impressive job with the Capcom Fighting Collection, though it would have been nice to perhaps expand the list a bit. While this is a decidedly 2D collection, bringing back more titles with which Capcom has built a lifelong legacy would always be a welcome move. Still, until then, this collection of beloved old-school titles is bound to keep fans happy!
