Manufacturer's Description

Carry the fight to hell and back with DarkStalkers Chronicle: The Chaos Tower on the PSP, the ultimate monstrous beat-'em-up for the ultimate handheld machine.

Jedah, lord of one of the three hells, has gathered the Darkstalkers. They must fight to save their demonic world...they must fight to save their souls. DarkStalkers Chronicle: The Chaos Tower possesses a compelling cast of monstrous warriors, each possessing their own unique fighting skills and abilities. This fierce brawler not only encompasses all eighteen menacing characters from the previous five critically acclaimed installments of the franchise, but it is also re-mastered to include additional content, game modes and wireless content especially for the PSP.

The game features various modes of play including arcade, training and network, all with their own demonic challenges to face. The real challenge though lies in the new tower mode; select three characters from the extensive roster and ascend to the pinnacle of a mysterious tower where many opponents await players. Each fight is a one-on-one battle and your energy does not replenish after each fight. Pitting the right competitor against an opponent will be the key to success to rise up the Tower as far as possible.

With it's full line-up of monsters, various modes of play and wireless gaming for two-player action, DarkStalkers Chronicle: The Chaos Tower is set to redefine hand held fighting by delivering the quintessential arcade game to the PSP handheld system.

Darkstalkers Chronicle is a 2D fighting game in the familiar mould of the Streetfighter series. There are 18 characters on offer here from the lesser known Darkstalkers series of games which offer somewhat of a refreshing change to the normal SF2 gang and will probably come a breath of fresh air to a lot of people.
The graphics on the PSP are really vibrant and colourful with some great animation and decent backgrounds. Sound is also good; about par for the course for this type of game with plenty of mad grunts and taunts and decent sound effects overall.
The game modes on offer are:
Arcade - the usual stuff here; pick a character and get through the 6 rounds to see the ending movie
Network - a wireless head to head battle mode (unfortunately I've not been able to try this with anyone as yet)
Tower - pick any three fighters and try and ascend the 'tower'(all 200+ rounds of it!) switching characters as you go to allow the injured to recouperate and unlock some really awesome game design stills to view in the galley.
Chronicle - view any stills you've unlocked in tower mode. You can zoom in on them and they are of very high resolution and are of very high quality overall. You can also listen to the in game sound effects and view any ending movies you've unlocked.
Training - hone your moves against a passive opponent.
Moves are pulled off in the familiar SF2 ways, quarter rolls on the D-pad and so forth and there is a simple mode available to simplify the buttons needed to pull super specials.
There are also different moves systems that are available, based on the various incarnations of the Darkstalkers games, and these invariably alter the way special moves are performed and what exactly constitutes a 'round' in a fight.

This is one of two best fighting games I ever played on a game system (not going to say what's the other one, or the review will be banned, but I think I can tell you it has the name of a city from the US of A in the title).
It has the funniest moves I've ever seen, the brightest and colourfull charecters (and many of them), a well balanced difficulty level. The game's also quite long as it has plenty of game modes, and many rewards to be gained for the matches won.
One of the best looking graphics I've seen on the PSP. People complain at the controls design, but worry not, you'll get used to it, they are not that hard (to throw fire-ball, just press =>, <=, then kick or puch).
An outstanding title for the PSP.

Darkstalkers originally came out in 1994, since then its seen a few revisions and its animation has greatly improved. Having graced the arcade, Sega Saturn, Playstation and Dreamcast, its now made its way onto the PSP.
The graphics and sound are near arcade perfect and look beautiful on the PSP (which gives the option of 4:3 or 16:9 screen size), pulling off dark force attacks leave the player with amazing animations that can take up the whole screen.
All the Darkstalkers characters (18 and 2 hidden) are included in the game, and Capcom have included the option of switching character types, so you can play as Original Darkstalkers (with limited moves) or Darkstalkers 3 (with more moves). Also included is the options for Auto and Turbo, which allows you to speed up your character and allow for the PSP to auto guard attacks for you.
Modes of play include Arcade (pick 1 fighter and take on 6 others), Tower (pick 3 fighters and fight round after round, unlocking new gallery pics), Wireless (one on one with a friend) and Chronicle (allowing the player to view pics, movies and listen to sounds from the game).
Being a big fan of Capcom 2D fighters I really looked forward to this title, sadly there is one thing that lets it down.
Controls - 3 buttons for kicks, 3 for punches - works great. D-Pad controls movement, and this is where it falls apart. Moving forward/back is okay but jumping forward/back is nigh impossible to pull off. This really complicates pulling of fireball attacks and combos, which can get frustrating.
Fans of the Darkstalker series (or Capcom fighters in general) should get some fun out of seeing a true portable Capcom fighter, but the controls may put a few people off.

This was the first game I bought for my PSP, and is probably my most frequently played. It has a stylish feel to it and is enjoyable... it is one of those games you can just pick up anytime you want and play. It is easy going, has many different modes that keep you playing a long time. It has a feel of Street Fighter to it.. with a strong storyline and sleek graphics.

Highly recommended!!!

I had previously never played a game in the darkstalkers series, but am a fan of fighting games, so when i saw this cheap i had to pick it up. It features a good (if sometimes a bit cartoony,) and abundant cast of characters and an enjoyable fighting system. The graphics are pleasing to the eye, and the animation is great. The only issue is the controls which, in their original form, are pretty much unusuable. However it includes a dumbed down PSP control set, which remaps the medium attacks to a double tap of the light attack button, changes the input required for special moves to a simpler more PSP friendly form, and adds a blank button, which can be mapped (at any time on the pause menu) to a specific special move for easy use. While it may feel like it's holding your hand a little on this, it makes the game much more playable and enjoyable with the control limitations. Overall a reccommended purchase, unless you are too much of a purist to be put off by the control simplification.
