In this era of home consoles, massive multiplayer titles, and epic adventures, it's easy to forget the days of hitting the local arcade, quarters in hand, for good old-fashioned button-mashing fun. Capcom Beat 'Em Up Bundle hearkens back to those days with some reflex-testing classic brawlers. While it's true that all these games are more than two decades old and can't help but show a bit of their age when compared to more modern games, the gameplay holds up surprisingly well even after all these years.

One of the big draws of this kind of gaming was getting together with friends and teaming up to take on the bad guys in co-op play. Capcom recognized this and made sure to bring that to home consoles by giving each game support for drop-in local and online multiplayer play. It's just a lot of fun to relive the excitement of working as a tag team to beat the snot out of those pesky street gangs, cyborg crooks, medieval minions, and other assorted baddies. And being able to tweak things like extra lives and difficulty helps to keep things challenging without ever getting overly frustrating. Each of the seven games has its own little quirks and personality, meaning that despite similar gameplay, they never feel like you're just playing the same thing over and over. And for the price, there's plenty of content to keep players' interest while saving those quarters.
