i guess i'm just able to adapt on the fly.


That's possible, honestly it did have like one of the worst controls for a Castlevania due to GB limitations.


i'm not new to the game either though... As a kid I even had a Game Player VHS strategy guide on the game, i need to pick that up again. Here is a video of it...

It is a great game but probably only for true castlevania fans.

.


Does it take a true Castlevania fan to enjoy really bad games?


I guess so. I just like it.

Why are you trying to fight?


Not trying to fight. I just wouldn't ever call it a great game, even if I did enjoy it. You basically implied that only a true Castlevania fan would enjoy it....I think even a true fan could recognize a bad game.

It is bad. May I suggest Gargoyle's Quest instead?


You may suggest Gargoyle's Quest any damn time you want. It's a kick ass game

It sucks, but its sequel is pretty good. Wait for that one instead.


what sequel was that?


Castlevania The Adventure II: Belmont's Revenge. It is more in line with the traditonal NES Castlevania's and is longer. It's far superior to the 1st one in every way, and the sooner that hits the eshop the better.

There's also a 3rd Game Boy Castlevania game, Legends. But the creators want us to forget that one because they are sexists.


Agree with this. The first one was OK, but hard as balls. And some of that hardness was artificial as others have said. The second one is more balanced and has better bosses in my opinion. Plus the music in the second one is great.


Lol, so you agree that the guys at Konami want us to forget Legends and are sexists?

If you have a Wii, I'd suggest Castlevania The Adventure: Rebirth

Castlevania is my favorite series, period. Having said that, no, The Adventure sucks. The Wii shop has Castlevania: The Adventure: ReBirth and it's a much better game.

The main problems with this entry are the strange gameplay mechanics (ropes? Those don't really fit the Castlevania vibe) and it moves soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
s... l... o... w... l... y... that it really is painful to play.

Yes, I recommend Rebirth as well. It's classic Castlevania. I never played the original GB version, so now I'm scared to after hearing reviews of it!
