Summary

A wonderful remake of Rondo of Blood

The Good

It's a remake of Rondo of Blood! Finally, it became available outside Japan in 2007. The 3D graphics are pretty good. The soundtrack is awesome. The controls are somewhat limited, but very responsive. The sound effect are pretty good too. The story is nothing complicated, but it's fine. The overall gameplay experience is really good! It's fun and challenging. The game can be frustrating, but with practice, it's possible to master it and then it's extremely fun! There are a few unlockables like music tracks that you can assign freely to the stages. Even from the other games! Yes, Symphony of the Night and the original Rondo of Blood are both unlockable. I love that!

The Bad

Sometimes it's frustrating, and the controls are limited, but it gives a fair amount of challenge. The english voice acting is mixed bag (you can choose Japanese if you want). You need to unlock the other games from the remake, they're not available from the start.

The Bottom Line

It's a must for all Castlevania fans! Wonderful game, 3 in 1 package! Quality in all aspects and challenging enough for hardcore fans. For the inpatients and casuals, it's recommended to avoid this game. It's difficult and frustrating sometimes. If you like difficult, quality platformers, get this game! Also, it has two other games.
