    Castlevania was the first game I got for the NES in the old times of gamming. I may have forgotten why I decided to get it first among other more popular games, but I will never forget that I made the best decission. ... Read Full Review

    Castlevania in Glorious 3D

    I have played Castlevania games since the original games on the Nintendo Entertainment System, and thus, I consider myself to be a Castlevania aficionado. That's why I was extremely excited after reading the announcement... Read Full Review

    Though it is the first 3D Castlevania, it is the best one.

    I wasn’t too sure how to receive Castlevania 64 initially. I heard unflattering things about it in various game magazines and the screenshots I saw were less than impressive. To me, Castlevania looked like a watered do... Read Full Review

    This game wasn't perfect, but at least got the atmosphere and story right, and was fun to play. Good memories.

    Looking back, i had a lot of fun with this game. Sure, no game has ever managed to get CV in 3D right, but this one was awfully close. I love the atmosphere, the story and characters and the fresh new perspective it ... Read Full Review

    Matt's best

    I personally liked Legacy of Darkness better then this game. With that being said it was pretty much what people thought a 3D Castlevania game should be. I was amazed when I first saw it, but when I played it I was sadly... Read Full Review

    Lots of fun with some chills but more thrills

    Castlevania 64 was a good game in my opinion. Though I wouldn't put it on a pedestal I would say that it deserves at least an 8. Its packed with intense battles with a wide variety of creatures of all shapes and form... Read Full Review

    Castlevania's first 3-D adventure is worth the wait.

    Nintendo decided to try to make the long standing 2-D masterpiece into a 3-D game and they didnt do too bad of a job. Castlevania 64 for the Nintendo 64 was actually a very good game with the usual storyline and enemies.... Read Full Review

    A 3D update on a 2D favorite makes for a fun experience.

    Castlevania makes its jump to 3D. It's a mostly solid title that suffers a tiny bit from some odd quirks that hold it back a bit. Like you would expect, Castlevania revolves around a Belmont's quest to kill a powerful v... Read Full Review

    dont bother. the WORST castlevania game.

    Just dont bother (mabe if u can find it for 5$) else, if u can have a choice to buy any other castlevania game, get that one instead. Controls are way to sluggish, the graphics pretty much suck as well. the only good ... Read Full Review
