    Step aside Simon!

    Richter is the new #1 Belmont! This game is the best of the level based Castlevania games by far, and probably my personal 2nd favorite of the series next to SOTN. Dracula and his minions are up to their old tricks and... Read Full Review

    One of the finest Castlevania games out there.

    In 1993, Akumajou Dracula X: Chi no Rondo was released for the PC Engine CD. Most gamers in the western world didn't know much about this game since it was only released in Japan. Years later a remake was released on the... Read Full Review

    In the good old days, people knew only peace and prosperity.

    Rondo of Blood was released only on Japan back in 1993, at the height of 16-bit gaming. A remake was made for the SNES, which was a very challenging game of it's own, but it was lacking a lot of stuff the original had. ... Read Full Review
