Push Square: "Regardless of whether you describe it as hack-and-slash, a 2D beat-'em-up, or a side-scrolling brawler, as a two game compilation Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara is the retro crème de la crème of this arcade genre on PlayStation Network. Capcom established themselves as masters at style of game in the mid-1990s and by applying CP-System II technology they ensured that arcades excelled above consoles in the genre. Tower of Doom provides an accomplished template of Capcom's progress in 1993, but it is Shadow over Mystara from 1996 that feels like the pinnacle of their beat-'em-up virtuosity. It has taken until 2013 for these titles to reach a larger audience through online stores like PlayStation Network, so it is modern gamers who reap the benefits of a HD sheen and GGPO four-player online functionality. Iron Galaxy has polished both titles to a contemporary shine. In simple terms, Chronicles of Mystara is the best of the best."
