    New players will be thrown back by how simple the controls are. You can't make him whip in any direction, only forward. This Castlevania is laggy and too punishing once you start into it. I wish they had made this more fluid and faster, but they were really strict to make it like an NES game. The music is excellent. There are also some fun animations / dialogue that don't ruin the game.New players will be thrown back by how simple the controls are. You can't make him whip in any direction, only forward.

I'm not going to recommend this one unless you already like Castlevania, and then probably only the NES or Genesis ones. Expand

    1993 yılında oynasam gerçekten kaliteli diyebilirdim ancak bu orjinali için geçerli. Fakat burda Remake'i için konuşuyoruz. Bence bir oyunun Remake'i yapılıyorsa o oyun geliştirilmeli, yeni içerikler eklenmeli ve modern bir hale getirilmeli. Daha iyi grafiklerle ortaya koymak o Remake'i iyi yapmaz. Normal yapar sadece. Bu yüzden 10/6 veriyorum.

    I would've liked to see the games actually optimized for the PSP. SotN IS the PSone version... I was hoping to atleast get the 16:9 resolution, the games themselves are still GREAT, but just not near as good a compilation as it could've been.

  1. As a reinvented version of a 16-bit game, this looks quite nice on the PSP's sharp display, but it plays like nobody's greased the machinery since its original 1993 release. [Oct 2007, p.127]

    Given the obscurity of the original PC engine origins and all the extras that play to true fans, Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles is an esoteric gem. [Oct 2007, p.92]

    Classic "Rondo" alone would be a great budget title for virgin Western audiences; adding a remake and "Symphony" turns this into a no-brainer. [Nov 2007, p.120]
