I bought Darkstalkers off of Playstation Network one night because I wanted a fighting game. I don't think I understood what I was in for. I didn't realized what this game was going to be and I had some fun with it but it suffers from one thing that in fighting games gets old.
When I play fighting games, I don't really practice with any character. I usually just hop on and play as the randomly selected character. If a game lets me, I just use that every match. This includes online as well. I just like the thrill of not knowing who I am going to play as.
This game has a curse and I swear other fighting games do this as well, where the random select will constantly get the same character over and over again. This happened to me in Blazblue and Persona 4 Arena. But this game is the biggest offender. Whenever I do random select, I always get BB Hood. Now don't get me wrong, she is a good fighter but I like to play as other characters. I always get her, I have even attempted to stop the random select not on her and it still goes to her.
Still, the game is solid and there is a lot to do. I have had some fun with it and I do like the fact that all the old monster movie favorites are there too. Nothing better than watching them go at each other. Yes, I know diehard fans will tear apart this review but nobody reads these. So I'm not worried.
