The C64, GBC, and NES are the best versions here for me.

C64 version, despite some rough looking sprites, is an easy win here.Smooth scrolling, best sound of all the versions shown.

Speccy, well i liked the explosions.

CPC-tiny playing window put me off.

GBC+Nes versions looked fine, but dissapointing audio.

There is an arcade perfect Saturn port too as part of Capcom Generations 1

Looks just like the PS1 Capcom Generations but I've no idea which version plays better - although the PS1 version doesn't have the little piece of artwork bottom right in the status area. I have the PAL version which has vols 1-4 in one pack but of course its the old 50Hz problem and I have no idea if they run full speed (something I am quite paranoid about). I have a Breaker Pro disk that lets me play imports but also lets me force PAL games to run at 60Hz. Not all work with this feature but the Capcom Gens discs seem to work OK - but I can't vouch for speed accuracy without doing a comparison.

The Capcom Classics for PS2 (and others) has 1942 as well - haven't ever compared that for speed (or the Wii's VC version for that matter!) Capcom Gens actually has something over the later collection as it offers TATE mode with the Classics disc don't do though that really only matters if you using an older TV I suppose.
