Alucard: Father...
Dracula: Well met, my son! it's been a long time.
Alucard: I was hoping we would not see each other again. I can't allow you to leave here, father.
Dracula: You have ever been the ally of humans. Have you forgotten what they did to your mother?
Alucard: Think you I would forget such a thing? No. Neither do I see revenge against them.

My 3rd favorite video game
2 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This game is simply one of the best video games in existence. It lets you basically do whatever you want, in an exploration style that is reminiscent of the Metroid games. It still has those classic Castlevania elements, such as various sub-weapons including the axe, holy water, and dagger. Not to mention some really awesome music. Years ago I paid 30 dollars for the soundtrack to this game, and it was well worth it. Several endings are unlockable, which is always a plus. The storyline of the entire Castlevania series is very, very deep; and this particular game is no exception. If you enjoy freedom, awesome music, and RPG elements in a sidescroller, then this game is definitely for you.
