STORY: This game has no story except endings for each character when playing arcade mode. This is how fighters were back then and it’s not important to have a story, because it’s all about fighting.
Graphics: The graphics in this game are not bad, but there are other rereleased fighters that look better like MVCO. The good thing is there are options to change the graphics through filters which can make the game look crisp, sharp, pixilated, or have scan lines which will give it the arcade cabinet look. The screen can be changed as well to either fill the entire screen or see the arcade cabinet itself. Characters have wacky hit animations similar to Tom and Jerry.
Audio: The voice acting is good. Each character has a theme that really suits them and their stage. The music is like jazz.
Good: Vampire Hunter is a fast-paced fighter that is similar to Street Fighter and the VS Capcom series in game play, but the cast of characters are from monster and fairytale movies. There are normal, special, es(ex), and super moves, but the motions in this game are a mix of Street fighter and Tekken. You have links, chains, cross-ups, and guard reversals at your disposal. Online play is available and how smooth your experience is depends on both player’s pings, and all your online fights and local fights can be saved as replays that can be uploaded to YouTube. And you can unlock endings, art, and the original opening movie by earning vault points which you gain by playing the game.
Bad: Some of the special and super moves have awkward motions that may not work well at times.
Overall: This is a really fun game to play either with friends or by yourself. And has really cool characters that you can play with. The only problem is the awkward motions for some of the special and super moves.
Likes: Graphics, music, game play, online, replays, wackiness, unlocks.
Dislikes: Awkward motions for some of the moves.
Wish list: Make the awkward motions better.
Score: 4.5/5 REALLY GOOD.
