  1. With the style of game being more action and side scrolling then RPG makes it playable on it's own regardless of having even seen the original, however I was feeling alienated as the story just throws you in; no major introduction or conclusion.

    It's still fun; just not nearly as compelling as its source of inspiration. [Oct 2005, p.101]

    It's not exactly a bad game, but it feels oddly archaic -- the kind of thing that would have been pretty hot 15 years ago on the NES. Now, though, it's mainly interesting as a poor man's "Castlevania."
  4. A confusing storyline, chunky graphics, hit and miss controls, and repetitive gameplay make this a game that will only appeal to fans of the anime series.

    It`s a really good game for the persons that love anime and want to play with the characters that they can see on tv.
