In addition to hisThis is the third game in the popular Castlevania series and the last of the franchise released on the original NES console. Take on the role of Trevor Belmont, forefather of Simon, and battle Dracula in a time long before the events of the first two Castlevania games. In addition to his trusty whip, Trevor has a power never before seen--the ability to transform into one of three different companion spirits that he meets at various points in his quest: Syfa, a young vampire hunter capable of powerful magic; Grant, a ferocious pirate who can climb on walls; and Alucard, forgotten son of Dracula, able to shoot fireballs and transform into a bat. Use an assortment of weapons (some specific to each character) as you choose which path to follow in your fight against Dracula and his army. Featuring some of the best platform action ever and loaded with replay value, this is a title not to be missed! Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I have to agree with the Angry Video Game Nerd, the game has no mercy, but the challenge is slowly rising the more levels you get through, the problems I have is that the amount of damage you can take is really huge at the end of the game, the Medusa Heads can actually take a 3rd of your health with one hit, ONE HIT! The other is when you die fighting Dracula on the NES, unlike the version on the Famicom Disk System, you don't start at the bottom of the grand stair case on the NES, you are sent all the way back to the beginning of the stage, if you wanna play this game, do anything you can to play the Famicom version, the music is different because of a few extra sound channels that enhanced the music, the amount of damage an enemy takes depends on the enemy itself, not how far you are a long the game, and when you die fighting Dracula, you start at the bottom of the grand stair case, just like the first game. The plot is that the game stars Trevor Belmont, an ancestor to Simon Belmont, which automatically makes the game a prequel. Expand
