Summary: Although Darkstalkers may not be the most popular franchise in the world, it holds a deep legacy for many fighting game fans. It contains one of the most unique and interesting stables of fighters in the entire genre, with great gameplay to boot. When it was made known that Darkstalkers would once again return to consoles after a long hiatus, many people were concerned that its relevance would falter alongside all of the other more contemporary fighters on the market.
Summary: DarkStalkers Resurrection is yet another high-quality fighting game collection from Capcom, a company that has gotten real good at this sort of thing. With an online mode and plenty of goodies to unlock, this DarkStalkers compilation is easy to embrace with open arms. Don't be intimidated by the chaotic action, the two games found in DarkStalkers Resurrection are well worth the asking price. Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review.
Summary: While Darkstalkers Resurrection isn’t as good as the Saturn, Dreamcast or PSP versions ports of these arcade classics, the fact you’re getting two solid fighting games for fifteen dollars is more than enough reason to pick this up. While the controls aren’t as tight as in the aforementioned versions (or the original arcade games), Darkstalkers Resurrection is still quite playable, and the series has never looked nor sounded better.
Excerpt: I really hope that the release of Darkstalkers Resurrection is just Capcom's way of seeing if their long-dormant mythological fighter franchise has a future. While Darkstalkers always seemed to live in the shadows of the likes of Street Fighter and Marvel vs. Capcom , it has always been an enjoyable property, thanks to its refusal to stay grounded in anything even remotely resembling the real world.
Conclusion: Darkstalkers Resurrection is a great collection of some classic games. I really liked playing Darkstalkers 3 , and the unusual round system and art style made the game seem like more than just another solid fighting game. Iron Galaxy did a great job updating the game in terms of visuals, tutorials, and online play. Night Warriors is by far the weaker of the two games, but Darkstalkers 3 is worth the price of admission.
Summary: For as much as I love throwing one of Ryu's fireballs and getting dizzy with Chun Li's spinning bird kick, the Street Fighter cast is a fairly pedestrian group. Outside of a Brazilian monster named Blanka and Dhalsim's stretchy arms, the World Warriors aren't all that interesting as video game characters. For anybody who has ever complained that Guile and Ken aren't flashy enough, I give you the DarkStalkers trilogy.
Excerpt: Darkstalkers is a game series that hasn't been given a new entry in some time. There was Darkstalkers: The Chaos Tower for PSP about eight years ago, but the last time a new main entry cropped up in this series with new characters, systems, etc., was Darkstalkers 3 in 1998. That's fifteen years ago.
Excerpt: Darkstalkers has been around for a very long time. In fact, the first instance of the franchise I can find is as far back as 1994. There are games, anime series and comics all dedicated to the franchise and, as such, you can expect that anything new in the series will be very good. Darkstalkers Resurrection is the compilation of two of the previous titles, namely Night Warriors: Darkstalkers’ Revenge and Darkstalkers 3.
Excerpt: Player(s): 1-2 Extra Features: Local multiplayer (1-2), Online multiplayer (1-2), Leaderboards If you're not familiar with Darkstalkers then it is a 2D fighting game similar to Street Fighter that has roster of Capcom's take of old-school creature characters. This series was popular in arcades during the 1990's and it was three games long altogether.
