Got an original Punisher running on my old tired Cabaret cab at the mo.

Yeah it's a gorgeous game, the gfx could well be on CPS2 board rather than 1. The animation in particular is superb. I've never seen it looking quite as good as it does on the little PSP screen.

Quick thought that came to my mind:
Is there a difference between a side scrolling beat'em up and a beat'em all?...

It's Vendetta by Konami.. I think it may have been called Crime Fighters 2 over here.. I'm using Mame 96 with the front end to play it.. Wish they would release the four player version on X Box Live

Cadillacs and Dinosaurs is the best beat-em up i've ever played. It's final fight with dinosaurs and guns thrown in! Shame we never got a console version....
