  "They did a pretty good job of scaling/redrawing the graphics to fit NTSC resolution."
 
Port of the first game in the Vampire/Darkstalkers series, and not a really great one at that. They took the time to redraw the characters to fit home console resolution, and did a pretty decent job as far as that goes, but cut so much animation that the characters look pretty spasmodic, having lost a great deal of the flowing, organic movement of the original.
 
There's also no Training mode, just two, actually: Arcade and Vs.
 
You're really better off getting the PS2 port (see entry 824) or, if you need a US or PS1 game, the Darkstalkers 3 port.

This version doesn't have a red screen flash on KO (or match end? whichever) like the arcade version, and later console ports (the PS2 collection)--and the later Vampire/Darkstalkers games in general--have. So I can play this version! (Ditto with the PS1 Darkstalkers 3. : ) Go PS1!)
