Are you man enough to conquer Dracula's castle?,
This review is from: Castlevania: NES Classics (Video Game)
Playing Castlevania again after all these years was truely a breath of fresh air. In the very first adventure through Dracula's castle this title proves that you must be hardcore to defeat it. With cheap hits at times and timing variouse areas this game is not for the weak.
The plot here is simple. You are Simon Belmont and recently Dracula has returned from the dead and is raising hell litterally. Your goal is to go through six levels of hell and face various monsters in your quest to slay Dracula. With only a mystical whip and big ol' set of grapefruits you embak on yur quest. Now you do get variouse sub weapons along the way, from the weak throwing dagger to the devastating holy water.
Now for the GBA edition they did include a save option for those who do a lot of traveling. This is a nifty feature that for some will make the game more bearable, but trust me it's not much.
Overall this is a game from the old days that will teach these young gamers the new meaning of discipline. If you can conqure Dracula's castle in this entry of the franchise, than maybe there is hope for your skills.
