    This is an amazing port of an amazing pair of games. Night Warriors and Darkstalkers 3 are as different as night and day. The first is a lot closer to the Street Fighter Alpha games, but with Chain Combos, which are the predecessor to the combo systems of Guilty Gear and games of it's style. Techniques that would also make it's way into other fighting games are the ES moves, whichThis is an amazing port of an amazing pair of games. Night Warriors and Darkstalkers 3 are as different as night and day. The first is a lot closer to the Street Fighter Alpha games, but with Chain Combos, which are the predecessor to the combo systems of Guilty Gear and games of it's style. Techniques that would also make it's way into other fighting games are the ES moves, which became EX moves in Street Fighter III. There's some others bod oh boy there's almost too much to list.

    The other game, Darkstalkers 3, has a non-traditional knockout system... which is to say you have 2+ Life Bars, and the fight resumes immediately after one is deplete without the prior round winner recovering As a result this is one of the fastest fighting games in memory. Your damaged health also regenerates fairly fast... within limits of course, so any issues this system causes are swiftly negated. Both games are considered to be amazing games, but are different enough that they warranted being a double pack. Now, there is an issue where there's slightly less in terms of framerate than the arcade originals, but make no mistake, this is probably one of the best ports Capcom has put out yet. There's also a few imbalances, but these are hard to fault since they were in the original games too, and it's not worth throwing a fit over. Go and buy this game immediately if you are a fighting game, fan, you won't be disappointed, whether you started on Street Fighter or are a fan of later games.

    As a newcomer to the series, I must say this was a perfect introduction to the series. Although it may have a few downsides, that shouldn't distract one from picking this up. It plays well and what's not to like about that?

  1. Darkstalkers Resurrection is a well preserved piece of history of which no fighting game fan should be unaware. Go check it out. [July 2013, p80]

    In fact, this is such a solid package that I don't have any outright criticisms, although it would have been nice if they'd thrown in the original Darkstalkers for completion's sake.
