Could have been the best 2D fighter on a handheld....

Summary: Lets be honest here, I have been playing fighting games since Street Fighter was released in the arcades, and I am talking about the first one in the mid 1980s. Then of course the titanic Street Fighter 2 came out and changed the face of fighting games forever in around 1991. Well anyways it introduced a system of special moves that required fancy joystick movements and a series of button presses to pull off.
Summary: three hours after i bought this game i had beaten every stage. i like to focus on the positive, so i will say the colors and graphics, though cartoonish, are eyecatching. other than that its not much more positive about it. i believe if it cost maybe $15 or less, i would feel better about it. i believe if you spend $40 on this, when you play it you are going to be upset. unless you have 40 bucks to throw away. nice simple fighting game, yes.
Summary: I think I bought this purely out of some nostalgic sense of duty, as the professional review I'd read of it was unflattering. I should have listened to the pros on this one. This game presents nothing new to anyone who's played a Darkstalkers game in the past, the graphics definitely don't come close to other titles available for the PSP (which tells me the developers don't even care about this product), and some of the button combos that you are required to punch...
