Official description

Legend has it that on London's blackest night in 1834, the secret Brotherhood of Hecate rediscovered the key to the darkest regions of man's unholiest fears. It is said that through this arcane act, they released into the dark, foggy streets of London the most horrifying creatures the world has ever known. But facing these beasts were two mysterious warriors. And on this fateful night, they engaged in a decisive battle to deliver the fate of millions. This is their story. The top-selling and critically acclaimed hit Nightmare Creatures is a terrifying immersive #-D action-adventure set in the Gothic world of 19th century London. An enhanced fighting engine delivers even more brutality. Smooth graphics and textures offer vividly detailed enemies and environments. Rumble Pak support provides forced feedback on the control pad. Nightmare Creatures fuses the combat elements of top fighting games with the fully explorable environments of adventure games. Unleash unstoppable combos, use incredible weapons and special moves, and find hidden objects. Created using actual maps and blueprints from London, the 3-D textured environments eerily evoke the feel of the city in 1834. Roam and butcher your way through sewers and cemeteries and face ungodly monsters in 16 chilling levels. Slaughter foes as the noble monk Ignatius or as the deadly sword-weilding femme fatale Nadia. Each character has his/her signature fighting styles with weapons that are upgraded with level progression.

A simplified port of Nightmare Creatures that had videos replaced with text, the adrenaline system becoming optional, platforming sequences being easier, and possibly other changes.
