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.
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.
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.
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.
Review: Darkstalkers Resurrection packs a punch with two classic titles
21 March 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!
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.
Summary: It may not look the best these days, but this revamped Darkstalkers collection plays like a dream and boasts excellent netcode to boot. Throw in a great tutorial system and it's a winner, particularly at arcade title prices.
Pros: Near perfect arcade ports of two classic fighting games. The monstrous Darkstalkers cast is still awesome. Online play is virtually lag-free. Great tutorials assist in getting to grips with the game.
Cons: Graphics from the mid-nineties can’t be improved by filters alone. It’s not Darkstalkers 4.
