SB Recommends CPS Games

Given the abundance of emulators that specificly serve CPS and Neo Geo games, I figured it was best to separate CPS games from the rest of Arcade games.

The CP System (abbr. CPS) is/was Capcom's arcade board system. There are 3 different models: CP System (abbr. CPS-1), CP System II (abbr. CPS-2), and CP System III (abbr. CPS-3). I'll go over each in turn.

  • Final Fight
  • Street Fighter II:Hyper Fighting
  • Strider
  • Willow
  • Alien Vs. Predator
  • Battle Circuit
    • The Blueberry Hill: Battle Circuit is one of my favourite Belt Scrollers. The graphics are lovely, the characters all odd and charming, and there's a good variety of attacks. Gosh, I even like how the name looks.
  • Dimahoo
    • Sniper Honeyviper: ARE YOU GREAT? Stupidly obtuse and difficult if you want to score well, otherwise a visually and mechanically stunning fantasy-shmup.
  • Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara (also on: Saturn1))
  • Giga Wing (also on: DC)
    • Sniper Honeyviper: The Dynasty Warriors of scrolling shooters. A bit too easy and patronizing (hey, who said you actually had to DODGE those bullets?!), but good stupid fun for a rainy afternoon or two.
  • Mars Matrix: Hyper Solid Shooting (also on: DC)
  • Sniper Honeyviper: What Gigawing should have been.
  • ben: Collectibles are something that I can usually take or leave in shooters, but I think they work incredibly well in Mars Matrix, to the extent that I sometimes find myself trying to extend my combo to the detriment of survival. Repelling bullets also feels hella nice, and there's a really great rhythm to dodging/repelling/collecting.
  • Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters
  • Progear no Arashi
  • Ring of Destruction: Slammasters 2
  • Street Fighter Alpha 2
  • Street Fighter Alpha 3 (also on: Dreamcast, GBA, NAOMI, PS, PS22), PSP, Saturn)
  • Super Puzzle Fighter
  • Super Street Fighter II Turbo
  • X-Men Vs. Street Fighter

All six of them.
