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.
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.
Review: Darkstalkers Resurrection packs a punch with two classic titles
5 April 2013
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...
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.
Conclusion: Darkstalkers Resurrection might be just a gauge for future releases of the series, but the effort put into it from Iron Galaxy and Capcom certainly says otherwise. The HD upgrade mixed with the extras and online play make this a solid package that any Darkstalkers' fan will want to snag.
Conclusion: It would be a mistake to deride a game so faithfully restored, but Darkstalkers Resurrection pales a little with time, and also when held up to the superior Marvel vs Capcom 2. While that might seem to be an unfair comparison to make, for a game to return to prominence, it must be able to contend with the best from its era. Released a scant three years after the last Darkstalkers, Marvel vs Capcom 2 has found a way to stay vital in the sphere of modern gaming.
