    Best Feature: Fantastic music. pretty good graphics for the most part. A pretty good game by itself. The final Dracula fight is actually really difficult! Worst Feature: It's good, but not as goo...

    This game was under appreciated because of Rondo of Blood but this game has its appeal : + the music is better than rondo of blood because of the chip sound in the SNES + more challenging, rondo...

    Castlevania is one of those phenomena that I'll probably never get. It's not that the series is bad or even average, it's fairly good in its own right but the dedication of gamers to this phenomenon i...

    A great game for back in the day!

    Rated on November 01, 2005 by Taranova

    It seems as though the castlevania games no matter what have all been good. I liked this on for some reason surprisingly more than the other ones. The music in this game (as in all others) was simply ...

    An overall great and underrated game. Combines great effects, fun bosses, and an ending boss that will keep you playing.

    An OK adventure game, but a fairly by-the-numbers Castlevania experience.

    Rated on February 07, 2007 by MagusMaleficus

    "Castlevania: Dracula X" is considered a sequel of sorts to the holy grail of Castlevania games, "Dracula X: Rondo of Blood," though it looks and plays more like a so-so remake. I...
