Summary

Hey Drac. How's It Goin?

The Good

The Music. The Friggin' Music of game is Mesmerizing. My favorite track is Dracula's Theme. I put it on my myspace. This game surpasses all Castlevanias even the new ones coming out. I don't care about graphical improvements, CV4 is the darkest and most gothic game in the world. Atmospheres flow eerily and gives off that ominous feeling that I've only experienced in a few games. My favorite part or should I say scene of this game is "the Bat Bridge". As Simon walks across, the bridge crumbles and bats are awakened from under the bridge and follow him to the Gear Tower. I love it. The Scariest part of the game is the final stage with the staircase. At this point, you don't know how hard Dracula is gonna be... so u slowly ascend the steps in the moonlight. By the way, don't miss the invisible steps in the bottom left-hand corner. Then, there he is... AHHHH!!! Awesome.

The Bad

Well, the difficulty of the game and the Torture Chambers. I HATE THE TORTURE CHAMBERS!!! That level is too hard for my taste.

The Bottom Line

A game good enough to leave in a death will.

By the way if u wanna hear Dracula's Theme. Here Ya go.
