  1. This might have seemed enjoyable 14 years ago, but then again so did MC Hammer. [Feb 2008, p.91]

    This game is the biggest pile of crap I have played in my entire life. If only there were an option to go straight to SOTN, but no. They have to make you go through 3 stages of the cheapest gameplay ever seen in game history to finally unlock what everyone came here for: SOTN. Simply thinking about this game makes my brain puke and playing it makes me think "how could Konami let something like this ever be made?", did they even playtest the game? Everyone who took part in making this opposite of a masterpiece should really quit their jobs and never even consider making games ever again. If you want to play this, pirate it at least, since you can't really ask them to pay you to play it. Full Review »

    A nice remake of Rondo of Blood, it looks so much prettier. It kept the same difficult-as-hell gameplay while also sticking to the storyline. The best part? You can unlock the original Rondo of Blood and Symphony of the Night. I was super stoked when I found out this little gem. Now that's what I mostly use this game for anymore, but all-in-all still great. Full Review »
