Shifting the spotlight to some more obscure releases was a wise choice, as the set of games included in Capcom Fighting Collection features some of the publisher's weirdest, but enjoyable, fighters.

The Capcom Fighting Collection includes no less than 10 titles from the Osaka-based company's catalog. And among them, 5 are from the Darkstalkers saga. It's a good compilation of retro games.

Capcom Fighting Collection does exactly what it sets out to do, and bar a few very minor presentational oversights, is a product with years of longevity. It's a shame to lose those bonus characters present in previous console releases, and you do need to consider what appeals to you when considering a purchase. If you want the best Darkstalkers collection, look no further. If you want to experience Red Earth and take it online, the time has finally arrived. Or, for Street Fighter II diehards, Anniversary Edition's modernised netcode really lets you be a world warrior.Bar Red Earth, however, this isn't the first time these games have been released, and it surely won't be the last. A purchasing decision comes down to how many times you have bought these titles before, how much time you spend on MAME (which has been a viable, albeit illegal, option for years) or whether or not you just want the most polished, accurate, easy-access fighting game experience to date, either at home on your TV or portably on the go. If you fall into the latter category, it's a no-brainer.

The Capcom Fighting Collection brings some unique titles that most U.S. gamers haven’t laid eyes on before. While not all the games in the collection are worthy to be in it, the Darkstalkers-centric theme makes it worth a look.

Capcom Fighters Collection is yet another example of the utmost respect Capcom has for its back catalogue. Even worse, it'll make you sad that Darkstalkers is dead.

A knockout combo of ten arcade greats – including five sensational Darkstalkers games – Capcom Fighting Collection represents fantastic value, online play with rollback netcode the icing on a delectable ass-kicking cake.

Capcom Fighting Collection brings us a good batch of arcade-perfect ports that are themed into a package that is great if you just want those specific titles to play at all times, but with 6 of them appearing in Capcom Arcade Stadium 2, and one already in Capcom Arcade Stadium, Capcom Fighting Collection comes off as a quick cash grab that really should have been pushed out as another DLC pack for either Capcom Arcade Stadium release. Your mileage is going to vary on how desperately you want 3 games that haven't seen a release since the 1990s… and by the looks of it, will never see a release again.

It may be preaching to the choir, but the Capcom Fighting Collection makes some much loved cult classic games broadly accessible on modern platforms, while being filled with goodies and extras for fans. That's good enough.

An homage to Darkstalkers more than anything, Capcom Fighter Collection is well packaged, presented and executed. There's not a lot of title diversity, but a few make their first overdue appearance outside of Japan and arcades.

Capcom Fighting Collection is essential for fans of '90s tournament fighters, particularly of Darkstalkers. That being said, the curated ten games feels like light packaging.

While Capcom Fighting Collection costs $39.99, this is a great assortment of games that you can play offline or online with friends. Sharing experiences from playing through the RPG-like fighter of Red Earth that was only in Japanese arcades before now is something that will add more to the conversation. Everything is nostalgic but it doesn’t try to believe in something that’s not there, and that’s why we definitely recommend adding Capcom Fighting Collection to your library.

The sprite work and sound design is still as on point as we always remembered. Outside of waxing nostalgic, we also get a previously unreleased in America entry with Red Earth, plus a rarer find in Gem Fighter for those wanting to dig deeper into the Capcom catalog. The sheer amount of Darkstalkers does bloat the collection to a degree and the poor online puts a damper but otherwise it's a good amount of games that show why Capcom were kings in the first place and hope they can return to the throne again one day.

‎Capcom Fighting Collection is one of the best collections in terms of fighting games thanks to the 10 games it includes, its variety of characters, scenarios and combat mechanics as an exceptional multiplayer section. A title not to be missed by lovers of fighting games.‎

Capcom Fighting Collection is a wonderful retro collection full of great arcade fighting games. However, up to half of it is made up of Darkstalkers games, some features are redundant, and the online mode is woefully empty.

A fantastic collection for fans of Capcom's golden period, thanks to the rollback, these fighting games gain a second life on the web. A position worthy of interest for all interesting stories, and how unconventional ideas the Japanese once had. It could have been better, but there is no tragedy. Darkstalkers are not dead?
