    This game used to piss me off so much, but when I played it again when I was older I realized it was actually a pretty good game with a great atmosphere

    this game is SOOOO underrated. Trust me this game is AMAZING. Do not listen all of these castlevania fanboys who say this game is sucks. First, it's the castlevania with the best atmosphere, the music are greats, two playable characters (Reinhardt and Carrie) with exclusive levels for each, alternative endings depending on your actions and unlockable costumes. But don't be fooled by the first level of the game (forest of silence), the game gets better thereafter. However, the game suffers of problems of camera, the platform sequences are sometimes difficult due to the camera and the lack of checkpoints within levels and levels are often labyrinthine so you will be often lost. But these problems are nothing compared to these great qualities and do not listen to people who tell you that this game is bad, IT IS NOT THE TRUE. Greatly underrated Expand

  1. A refreshing change of pace from most of the cutesy games that come out for the N64. It's a fun ride, and as the first 3d game in the series, it shows the versatility of the series.
  2. The first attempt to bring the Belmonts to 3D was, for its time, an excellent one. [Jan 2004, p.189]
  3. If you're prepared to overlook, or at least work around, the faults, Castlevania is well worth considering. The only thing that old hands at Castlevania will be left wondering is why you can't swing with the whip.
