Yay
-Nice selection of games. Captain Commando, Final Fight...even Black Tiger!
-Unlockable extras give it that "Special Edition DVD" feel
-Easy to pick up and play. No real time investment needed.
-Captain Commando's flamethrower trick still works!

Eh
-Selection of games on PS2 is different that PSP. Where's Gunsmoke? Or on PS2, where's Black Tiger?
-After you've beaten the beatable games, then what? Review extras for a few minutes?

Boo
-Controls are a bit loose (especially playing Strider and Bionic Commando).
-Realization that NES versions of Strider and Bionic Commando are (were) better than their coin-op counterparts.
-Realization that only three of the games were really worth playing without thinking "I have GTA: Liberty City, a PS2 (etc.)...why am I playing this?" Whatever Capcom couldn't develop into a full franchise, they swept it here.
-Basically, if a friend asked me "Did you check out the Capcom Classics?" I'd reply, "Yeah, I did". End of story.

Fun in small doses

A lot of these games just don't hold up to the modern era (for instance, Street Fighter 1 is just terrible these days). Lots of the games are really punishing, and would have been fun if they were just a tad easier (Captain Commando comes to mind). As it is, you won't play many of these games more than once.

However, there are some strong games here. Final Fight is great. Strider is good (but hard). 1941 is entertaining.

A few of the games are fun for a half hour or so -- "Quiz and Dragons" is a trivia game that's fun if you play it communally with some friends. A lot of the questions are nearly impossible to answer because they're 80s trivia, but that makes it all the more amusing. In small doses.

In the end, that may be the best description -- fun in small doses. This is worth renting, but not worth buying unless you really find you like a game.
