Conclusion: The Dishwasher: Vampire Style is a rollickingly gory ride, packing with blood, style and content. If only it built on its foundations, rather than pounding us with the same repetitive gameplay throughout, this would be a must-have.
Summary: The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile is a combo-fueled, fast-paced, stylistic 2D action platformer that features the series' staple gritty, graphic novel-inspired art style, built on a brand new engine that allows for an even more visually gruesome experience.
Excerpt: Despite the relative success of the original, The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile is still primarily the work of one man: James Silva, winner of Microsoft's 2007 Dream Build Play contest, but most well-known for creating indie channel darling I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MBIES 1N IT!!!1.
Conclusion: If you're a fan of the first game, or you just like the genre, give it a go. The story isn't TOO hard to follow if you haven't tried the first one, and there are enough levels to keep you occupied for hours and hours.
Summary: At 800MS points " The Dishwasher: Vampire’s Smile " is probably one of the best arcade style games I have played. Blending the old 2D gameplay with modern control elements gives a feel that manages to feel both familiar and unique.
Excerpt: Dead Samurai was a flawed but interesting concept for a violent 2-D beat 'em up. It looked and played great but the game was also on par with Ninja Gaiden in how unforgiving it was, and that ended up turning off some gamers, including myself, that otherwise might've been interested in it.
