Självklart ska man inte jämföra ett spel till PlayStation med ett till Game Boy, men efter att ha spelat Castlevania: Symphony of the Night i månader känns det lite konstigt att ge sig in i Castlevania Legends. Det är verkligen som att förflytta sig bakåt i tiden. I dubbel bemärkelse.
Nintendo Power Magazine
Konami knows this series inside and out, and in Castlevania Legends, it pushes all the right buttons. With the new Light Mode, anybody should be able to reach the end. Even so, you'll have many hours of bat-slapping fun. It's like an old friend you haven't seen for ages.

Dennoch zeichnet sich Castlevania Legends nach alter Tradition durch eine präzise Steuerung, eine faire Kollisionsabfrage und durch teilweise riesige Gegner aus. Bei letzteren geht der Game Boy zwar ab und zu in die Knie, doch das wirkt sich nicht wesentlich auf die Spielbarkeit aus. Ein faireres Gameplay und interessantere Level hätten aber nicht geschadet.
Nintendo Life
After the sublime Belmont's Revenge, Castlevania fans deserved something really special to see off the series on the Game Boy. Sadly, they got Castlevania Legends instead. Poorly-designed, atrociously scored and generally lacking any of the polish we've come to expect from Konami's famous vampire-slaying series, its an inauspicious end to a portable trilogy that only has one worthwhile entry: the aforementioned second title. Don't be fooled by the game's steadily-increasing value on sites like eBay - this is collectable solely for its name alone, not for the game itself.
