Buy it to support Capcom. It's only $20... There are some very nice extras that should interest arcade nuts like scans of marquees, instruction cards, monitor bezels, shots of cabinets, design sketches and all sorts of artwork. Very nice bonuses.
As far as accuracy, I didn't notice any *glaring* errors outside of the SF2 games, but I haven't played most of them in some time and didn't compare them side by side to MAME. They felt like the real arcade experience, for whatever thats worth.
