Darkstalkers Chronicle: The Chaos Tower

Playstation Illustrated
30 January 2006
  • Excerpt: The term “Arcade Perfect” is losing its effect these days as more and more consoles meet and exceed arcade standards. This situation is creeping over into the handheld world, and Darkstalkers Chronicle: The Chaos Tower is a perfect example of it. The 2D animations are bright and fluid, and there is no slowdown when the screen fills up with colorful effects from super moves. Everything the arcade had in terms of visuals has been done justice on the PSP.

  • Excerpt: Supernatural 2D Beat -‘em-up Darkstalkers, is less well known than a certain other Capcom beat-‘em-up. Known in Japan as Vampire Saviour, we haven’t seen a major console release in the series for some time – its heyday was the mid- to late nineties when it appeared on the Saturn and PlayStation. And what a fabulous, over-the-top, spectacular fighter it was. Morrigan the saucy succubus has since appeared in the Capcom vs.

Darkstalkers Chronicle: The Chaos Tower

Portable Review
22 October 2005
  • Excerpt: It's been a long time since I've played a Darkstalkers game. Actually, I've never played one on a console, so keep that in mind while reading this review. Darkstalkers has always been one of the more fun combo-laiden Capcom fighters. While I found Marvel vs. Capcom 2 a fun game, I felt like I was drowning in combos. Darkstalkers has a more basic combo system than that game. I really like it, but the inability to link combos into special moves is somewhat annoying.

  • Conclusion: Great game, but definitely one of Capcom’s lesser-known works. Where’s Wi-fi Power Stone 2? Now THAT would pimp the PSP.

  • Excerpt: In a nutshell, what Capcom has done here is take all of the characters and most of the backgrounds, music, and so on from three individual games (Darkstalkers, Darkstalkers 2: The Night Warriors, and Darkstalkers 3) and organize them in such a way that you can pick a character from one game and send them against characters from that or any of the other games.

  • Conclusion: The replay value of this game is limited only by the person who is playing. Some players will be playing Darkstalkers Chronicle for months to come. There’s so much to do in this title that it would take that long to unlock everything, then there is the wireless multiplayer mode. Seriously, this title could last a very long time. The only downfall is the awkward controls.

Darkstalker's Chronicle: The Chaos Tower

Empire Online
24 January 2006
  • Summary: If there’s one PSP title sure to get fanboys in a lather, it’s Capcom’s Darkstalkers Chronicle. But while Chaos Tower is an almost-perfect port of the classic arcade brawler, the dumbed-down PSP controls will leave some devotees fuming. A 2D beat ’em up in the Street Fighter mould, Darkstalkers features a dazzling roster of cartoon fighters, each bursting with colour and personality; from a kung fu werewolf to a high kicking vampire, the anime-inspired characters are...
