The Good: Fast fun gameplay, nice graphical style, some of the best video game music ever created, long, good story
The Bad: Extreme difficulty can really turn some people away, the age here shows quite a bit
I never played this game before until now. I was too young at the time to really understand the game. Now that I’ve played it I understand why it got its praise and I don’t understand at the same time. What really makes me not like this game as much as other people is the extreme difficulty. Either that or I just suck at the game. I’m not really good at 2D platformers, to begin with, but this game does deliver on all accounts.
It has a great story, great graphics, fast fun gameplay, you can equip stuff on every body part you have (ahem), you can buy things! While I’m not a huge Castlevania fan, to begin with ( the first CV ever was Lament of Innocence (PS2). I’m not saying this game is terrible but for me, the difficulty was way too hard for me. I just couldn’t get past the third stage.
