The third game in the Darkstalkers series, Vampire Savior: The Lord of Vampire is yet another awesome 2D fighting game from Capcom, reminiscent of such fan favorites as Street Fighter Alpha, X-Men vs. Street Fighter and Marvel Super Heroes. Players select from 15 fighters, including four newbies: Baby Bonnie Hood, an Uzi-toting bounty hunter equipped with land mines and a bazooka; Lilith, a Morrigan-like succubus who can make opponents dance, Jedah, a deadly being outfitted with dive bomb attacks, a giant scythe and projectiles, and Q-Bee, a wicked insect queen with a stinger and hives of attacking bees. In addition, some of the veterans have been modified. Also new to the series is a special Dark Power attack, which is similar to the custom combo feature in Street Fighter Alpha 2. Gorgeous backgrounds, picture perfect animation, balanced gameplay, a rocking soundtrack and ultra-smooth controls — this game's got it all — except, of course, originality. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
