Capcom Generation
カプコンジェネレーション
   
The Capcom Generation collection is a set of 5 compilations released in 1998 on Sega Saturn and PlayStation featuring a total of 16 arcade games from Capcom's back catalogue.
The premise is similar to the Namco Museum series: each volume includes a few perfectly replicated arcade classics presented with a host of bonus material (art galleries, gameplay hints, sound tests etc.)
You can't go wrong here: every title included is a bona fide masterpiece, perfectly preserved for posterity. You can't help but feel a little disappointed by the basic in-game menus though, especially when compared to the slick interactive 3D museums of Namco Museum.
Also, due to the Saturn's higher resolution, the SS versions suffer from small black borders on the left and right of the screen. It's a minor gripe though; a complete set makes a classy addition to any self-respecting game library.
Volume 5 is of particular note to Street Fighter aficionados: completing all three games (World Warrior, Dash and Turbo) opens an exclusive 'Super Versus' mode, allowing players to select any version of any character. It's an excellent concept, that serves as an interesting precursor to the all-inclusive Hyper Street Fighter II (2003).
