REVIEW - Darkstalkers Resurrection

If you grew up in the 1980s -90s and you're a fan of this site, you remember two things - the growing amount of zombie films and fighting video games.  There was Street Fighter, Tekken, Street Fighter 2 and so on but where was the horror?  So the video games powers-that-be answered that question with Darkstalkers.  With the coin up fighting game, players could be a werewolf, vampire or, yes, even a zombie and trade punches and kicks. 

Capcom has ported three Darkstalker games for play on the Xbox360 and the Playstation 3.  But is the game worth downloading or is it a memory best left in the past? 

Giving gamers a chance to play Darkstalkers, Darkstalkers 3 and Night Warriors: Darkstalker's Revenge from their console is an enjoyable experience.  The port is authentic and you'll feel like you're back at the arcade.  The zombie rating is moderate as there is only Lord Raptor in the game representing the undead.  However, the horror / gothic vibe is still present.  Spend the points or the minimal cash and rest your thumbs.  You'll need them and the night awaits!

Darkstalkers Resurrection is available now for download from the Xbox Live and PS3 network.
