Good old game.

Summary: Very good for old school gamers. But before you buy the game pay attention to the size of your memory, the game needs only 128K to create a save file, but it will display a message to you saying that there is not enough space. This problem exited in street fighter alpha 3 max for psp , because your memory in bigger than 1GByte.
Summary: Darkstalkers Chronicle is a perfect port of this underated fighter from the big boys at Capcom. With 18 characters to choose from you should have no problem finding the fighter thats just right for you. The controls are a bit sluggish making fireballs unusually difficult to perform, but once you get the hang of it you should have no problem fighting your way through this button smashing fighter. The graphics are superb and the animations is flawless.
Summary: I played a very similar game on the Dreamcast and it was virtually unchanged. I thought the worst part is that the game isn't even reformatted for the PSP's widescreen format, it is simply stretched from the original 4/3 format which is UNCCACCEPTABLE for a $40 game. Though a 2d fighter can be fun but alot of the ejoyment comes from playing with friends and since your chances of running into someone with the game are slim its a no go for me and i resold it.
Until Sony release some sort of PSP upgrade with a decent D-pad, there really isn't any point

Excerpt: While it hasn’t ever been one of the company’s more famous or successful franchises, for some reason Capcom opted to open it’s PSP account not with an entry into one of it’s world-famous Resident Evil or Streetfighter franchises, but instead a Darkstalkers game, and one with a real mouthful of a title at that.
Summary: Darkstalkers originally came out in 1994, since then its seen a few revisions and its animation has greatly improved. Having graced the arcade, Sega Saturn, Playstation and Dreamcast, its now made its way onto the PSP. The graphics and sound are near arcade perfect and look beautiful on the PSP (which gives the option of 4:3 or 16:9 screen size), pulling off dark force attacks leave the player with amazing animations that can take up the whole screen.
