    An "Improved" Version of "Castlevania 64"

    Unlike most Castlevania fans, I loved the original "Castlevania 64" quite a bit. It stands as my second most-loved of the series. So of course I rushed at the chance of getting a game that acted as both a prequel to that... Read Full Review

    Greatest Castlevania game EVER!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh man I love this game! The only thing that I saw graphic wise was dracula's demon form at the end of the game. His hand is backwards!!! But hey, the sound was great, the gameplay was great and I think I've played each ... Read Full Review

    This game has lived up to the music of the Castlevania Series, and it has many different characters.

    I would have to say this game is full of action. It has many secrets, and its quite challenging. This is the one of the first 3D Castlevania games. The game-play is good, but there are some flaws, but not very many. Some... Read Full Review

    an under rated game that was close to being my favorite game on the n64

    The most underrated Castlevania ever made… Castlevania: legacy of darkness is the 2nd installment in the series to be 3-d. The first 3-d castlevania for the n64 came out about 11 months before lod. Castlevania(64) was... Read Full Review

    A better game than you might think!

    I personally really enjoyed this game. I played this game before the first Castlevania on the Nintendo 64 and really like it. There are lot of stuff to do and the game is actually quite long. I can't really remember what... Read Full Review

    An americain werewolf in Transylvania

    Its good but its like the first one

    If you played the first Castlevania for N64, this game might seem familiar this has most of the same levels but a few more added. You start off seeing a cutscene where this guy goes to his village to see it being attacke... Read Full Review

    Castlevania Legacy Of Darkness. Well Konami has redone Castlevania 64. However the second one isn't without error. Legacy Of Darkness starts out 10 yrs before Castlevania 64, and your character is a werefolf. Not to say... Read Full Review

    I came expecting a horrible Castlevania game as I had never experianced a 3D castlevania. Man was I wrong.

    I've been a fan of castlevania for a couple years now. I've played the side-scrollers and they were all excellent games, however I had not yet played one with 3d graphics I honestly had low expectations for this game, bu... Read Full Review
