    Same old game, different characters

    Castlevania games were always unbalanced when it came down to gameplay. But excelled really well in music, art, and sound. Basically you start the game off with the choice of two characters. Neither one of them is a Belm... Read Full Review

    The game is short, but it offers enough to satisfy your Dracula hunting gaming.

    Nothing new but hey it's Castlevania - these games are just fun to play. But it's not exactly the cream of the crop.

    Castlevania Bloodlines is a classic Castlevania platformer but it wasn't released on the Nintendo consoles, it's the Sega Genesis version. But it's still done by Konami who just knew how to make really awesome games in ... Read Full Review
