    It all depends how old you are, and when you got into gaming. If you've been playing Castlevania since the NES days, you have to do yourself the favor and pick up this game. "Super Castlevania," "Dracula X" and "Symphony of the Night" are way better games, (the gameplay and controls are much simpler than the other games) but this one should still be in you collection.

Like all the other reviews said; if you don't understand what the Castlevania phenomenon is all about, definately don't bother. Kudos to Konami for bringing this one to the States, some of us reday love classics remakes/reisuues. Expand

  1. One tough mother through and through. It's a simpler, tighter, better-paced and more addictive old-school side-scroller adventure than 1997's "Symphony of the Night."

    It is a concept and a series so classic, and so almost universally superb in all of its available incarnations, that it holds an almost unique place in the sort of collective gamer consciousness.

    Chronicles has the classic formula I’ve come to know and love. Frustratingly good difficulty, cool extras – an oldie but a goodie. [Nov 2001, p.216]
