According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Blood, Violence
Parents can feel safe letting children play this one for the most part. Although there are a few vaguely questionable elements like the spurts of blood in Strider or the S&M ladies in Captain Commando and Final Fight, most of the content here is completely safe, low-impact arcade-style action. There's lots of shooting robots and bugs and so forth since many of the titles of yesteryear were based on that simple gameplay mechanic, but these titles are clearly from another era of gaming and never approach the kinds of content that may be included in some modern titles.
Arcade lovers or old-school gamers should snap this one up for sure. The variety of games on this collection is much better than the first one Capcom released on the PSP, and most of them are legitimately good titles. The ability to have infinite continues and to adjust settings for each game are also big pluses, taking the edge off games that were designed to extract as many quarters as possible from unwitting players. By far, this is one of my favorite compilation releases overall.
Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers will have no problems. Almost none of the games require reading to actually play, the little dialogue or information that's present is in the form of text...after all, many of these games were created before it was possible to include full voice samples. None of the games rely on auditory cues and hearing is not necessary to enjoy them; it's all about fast reflexes and a strong button-thumb.
