  1. For the determined vampire hunter, Castlevania: Curse of Darkness can be engaging, but only in the manner of any item-heavy level grind.

    I find it a great game,especially considered its 3D(and its obvious that Castlevania always had a problem going on with the 3D).Sometimes theI find it a great game,especially considered its 3D(and its obvious that Castlevania always had a problem going on with the 3D).Sometimes the camera might be a bit laggy,and the controls a bit awkward,but in general I find this game a great experience.First of all,the music is top-notch.And what else to expect for a CV game.The story is pretty good as well.But the gameplay is what matters,and I find it damn addictive.Devil forging,item forging,lots of exploration,fluid combat,memorable bosses and environments and some plot twists to keep you thrilled.I dont know why some people bash this game,but I find it great and a must play for any Castlevania fan.
