Trivia

First Castlevania game to separate from the "stage-by-stage" gameplay of earlier games, and create a more Metroid-esque play experience, which also featured RPG elements (leveling up, equipping new stuff, item usage, etc.) See more »

Castlevania-Better Then Ever...

Sure it's sort of an old game But hey its most likely the fan favorite of all CASTLEVANIA games. This game is so much different from all the other CV games such as Game play, Graphics, And Most of all Sound Voice And Score(music). These features make this game so great as it should be. Sure the Voice Acting can get cheesy at some points in the game but the INCREDIBLE game play makes up for all the flaws. The controls are outstanding and you can actually jump across a pit in this one as opposed to all the other NES CV GAMES! (a little inside joke to all CV players) But anyway this is probably the best CV game that KONAMI has released in a long time. So go buy this title or rent it today you wont be displeased. I know I wasn't!
