Darkstalkers Resurrection Review - The Digital Fix

The original Darkstalkers had a tough time on the home gaming scene. Capcom’s less popular follow-up to the phenomenally successful Street Fighter II, Darkstalkers’ band of fantastical characters never really captured the gamer’s imagination (or share of the market) in the same way that Ryu, Blanka and their buddies did. It was very much a niche franchise, with a much harder learning curve, crazy moves and a bizarre cast. Given the limited success the game had outside of Japanese arcades it’s surprising then to see Capcom go to town on Darkstalkers Resurrection, a double pack of entries in the franchise. Bundling together Night Warriors: Darkstalkers’ Revenge from 1995, and Darkstalkers 3 from a couple of years later, the package’s success or failure may well influence whether a fourth entry is made. So how does it shape up? (Darkstalkers Resurrection, Xbox 360) 6/10
