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. This product was submitted by the publisher for review.
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.
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: 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.
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.
Review: Darkstalkers Resurrection packs a punch with two classic titles

Excerpt: The Darkstalkers franchise has never really escalated in popularity as, say, the Marvel vs. Capcom games did. However, the series does have a following. And without Darkstalkers , we wouldn't have the lovely Morrigan! After the fans screamed and blogged about it, Capcom listened -- and we finally have Darkstalkers Resurrection , the downloadable title developed by Iron Galaxy Studios (who has previously re-released the arcade titles Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Online...
