"I tried hard not to mention Street Fighter 2 in this article, but the comparison will always be there, particularly when looking back on that gaming era. Capcom made a classic and this feels like a cheap knock-off in comparison. Whilst other beat-'em-ups offered something fresh to the genre, there is nothing here in any of the World Heroes Anthology that you haven't seen before, except that it's been done here worse. So much worse. Only a true fan of the series could consider buying this compilation. If you need the retro action spend the cash on SNK Arcade Classics, which at least gives a more balanced offer of what was available on the Neo Geo console."
