Yes they are all top quality games with very elaborate big sprites, but a bit bland in the gameplay. I think the beat'em up genre can't be sanitized and politically correct. Ok in Captain Commando you could cut your enemies in half with the ninja IIRC. But to be fun these games need more dirty moves, some humor and more interaction with the background have a look at Vendetta/Crime Fighters 2, Combat Tribes, Night Slashers, Violent Storm, Growl, 64th Street: A Detective Story.

I'm not bashing Capcom, I played their beat'em ups when arcades were around, mostly Final Fight, Cadillacs&dinos, The Punisher and Captain Commando. Unfortunately I rarely saw any of those "b series" beat'em ups I mentioned at the arcades.
