Taking me back is this...its nice to see it got a release on the networks...if I ever have spare cash I will definetly look into it

I miss thouse old times.
When you have to spend way to many coins on a game and then die to much, and after wurths your broke and not even happy.

Wait i hate those day's.
So why is it worth it to buy this on the network?

Note that you have to be connected on PSN to be able to play this game. My internet went out for a couple of days and I was stuck with a useless program

I had final fight! At the time i didn't realise i was beating up prostitues!

You weren't. You were beating up guys. The only girl in that entire game is Cody's Girlfriend. Not kidding.

Although, I guess they could still be prostitutes...

I guess they just left it out there to be assumed.

I've heard about that for the PS3. No idea why they did that to be honest, but this is not the case for the xbox version.

It would be worth it if there were infinite continues otherwise people, including me, would pay to get two great classic games.

Street of Rage 2 is a much better option on the Xbox 360, and is only 400 points.

Although, the Magic Sword demo part was pretty damn fun.

Yep, I played this! Cool to see it again, but that's about it.

If you still have an original Xbox, you'd be better off looking for Capcom Classics Collection Vol. 2. At least then you can get Magic Sword with about 20 other games.

"Old-school difficulty" is not a bad quality. If you think it is, then you've gotten too soft from all your quick-time events and regenerating health. And if you're really too confused by what goes on in Magic Sword... PLAY IT AND LEARN. It's a fantastic game that holds up well even today. I may be somewhat biased because I hold high praise for it, but I'd like to think that my own excitement for it may help others get into it.

Here's a few freebies for the uninitiated:
- Some stages require you to go left and/or right from the start point. Explore thoroughly for some decent power ups or secrets.
- If you have the Diamond Ring in your item box, the Lizardman Warrior will join you as an ally. If not, he'll attack.
- The Thief NPC allows you to spot hidden treasure chests at the cost of him having poor attack damage.
- The game's ending is a moral choice that is left up to you for two different endings.

As for Final Fight, the original one is hard to play after all these years, especially when there's the vastly superior Final Fight 3 on SNES. That one even has a solo 2-player mode with the computer playing along side you.

I know I've said it before but


Mustache!!!

Streets of Rage 2 doesn't come with a full length episode of the Street Fighter cartoon as an unlockable though.

So, it doesn't come with something horrible?

Wait, it's the arcade Final Fight? As in I don't have to load in a separate cart to play as Guy?

Sold.

Oddly enough, there were two women enemies in the original concept work. They preemptively changed their description to transvestites because they were afraid Western audiences would object to violence against women. Apparently, this was a useless gesture, because they made them change the skins to make them male in appearance during the port to SNES and GBA. They left them as TVs for Sega, Atari, and Playstation versions, though.

OT: I can't wait to play Final Fight again. Don't think I've ever played Magic Sword.

I remember a parody of this on Newgrounds, one of the guys ate a chicken and threw up everywhere. It was funny and I laughed.

I love Magic Sword. The only Capcom fantasy game I like more was the Dungeons and Dragons arcade machine.

If you can't appreciate nostalgic 80's television then you sir can just leave. What next your going to bash the Super Mario cartoon?

I'm loving all of the concept art that you can unlock in both games. So many of them. And the Street Fighter comic is actually pretty cool.

Well if you pay me those coins back then yes ^^

Always on internet connection required DRM http://www.joystiq.com/2010/04/21/ps3-final-fight-double-impact-requires-psn-connection/

Fortunately it is ps3 only but everyone should know. Capcom requires a phone home to play a single or local multiplayer game on a (currently uncrackable) console...

Was it the same company that made Streets of Rage 2 and Final Fight?

Sega made "SoR2" and Capcom made "Final Fight"

Anyway, just bought it. I enjoy the hell out of it.

If it had "Cadillacs and Dinosaurs" too, i would SO buy the hell out of that thing.
Well itīs just 10 bucks if i had an xbox360 i would buy it anyway, i rarely had the luck of ever finishing one of these games in the actual arcades mainly cause i only got like 5 games to play each time i went to the arcades and it would have been a very bad choise to play always at the same game.

I've loved playing this, so many memmories, even don to the cody punch punch turn trick, although I missed out on magic sword the first time around. Damn my shitty local arcades.

Heres hoping its successful so we can get a knights of the round/Dungeons and dragons/Capitain commando triple pack.

I'm still incredibly pissed that you couldn't play co-op in the Super Nintendo version. At least you can now.

I would so buy a double pack that consuisted of Cadillacs & Dinosaurs and Captain Commando, those games were awesome.

I used to see how far I could get on a single credit

Not entirely true. Your comment must be referring to Poison, yes?

Although Poison was a MTF transgender, that doesn't make her "not a girl" as much as more specifically, not a GG or "genetic girl". Roxy, the other female member of the Mad Gear gang, was a GG, having grown up alongside Poison in the orphanage and idolizing her for her fighting and tough-gal ways.
