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

    Rated on February 19, 2007 by TheSerafen

    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 look...

    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...

    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 p...

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

    Rated on June 02, 2005 by W8I8Z

    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 st...

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

    Rated on September 09, 2005 by jekyll

    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 ...

    Rated on November 04, 2006 by acevampire
