Remembering… Castlevania: Curse of Darkness

Curse of Darkness was that game that sat in my collection for years, purchased in 2006. The road traveled was fraught with some frustration and the end result was me stuck in a quicksand where I couldn’t overcome Death and Legion. After figuring out my priorities at the time, I had set the game aside knowing that when it came to games built from the JRPG mold, if you’ve made it far on the neglect of certain secrets or having not dared to obtain the knowledge stowed in the GameFAQs coffers, it’d usually equate to uphill struggles doused only by restarting from scratch.

didnt care for the 3D iterations of castlevania other than LOS.. I absolutely LOVE the series tho & still have this & lament of innocence on PS2.. Matter of fact, i own EVERY Castlevania game ever made except the sega genesis version.. 2D pixeled sprites is how this game needs to be & stay.. Hopefully mirror of fate is worth the $40.. I will no doubt buy that and LOS 2 when they release day 1

I would love for them to make a Metroidvania game with high res sprites such as in Blazblue or in KOF 13 I mean the standard for games is in 16:9 ratio which means double the width and height of ratio of the screen which leads to bigger rooms and areas which leads to a humongous castle with who waiting at the top for us? Dracula sipping on a wine glass full of blood and eating pot roast (Ideally by saying this I would want the game to be about the events prior to Aria of Sorrow where a young Julius Belmont and company destroyed Dracula forever).

Yeah, LoS was awesome. Can't wait for number 2.

this is the best 3d castlevania game

I personally really liked it, it surely felt more like Castlevania along with Lament of Innocence then Lords of Shadows did (not saying LoS is a bad game, what I am saying is that I can look at CofD and LofI and instantly recognize it as Castlevania where if I look at LoS I don't see Castlevania I see something else [coming from a guy who's played every CV game including the gameboy one's Adventure, Belmonts Revenge, and Legends]).

Ok first off I remember this game has some terrible dialouge and enlgish dubs if i remember correctcly. speaking fo 3d castlavania games check out the n64 games legacy of darkness. SOmeone just relieased a hd texture mod awhile back. Does the game wonders and wow does it look so much better =). This is from some girls hd texture pack for castlevania 64 to get an idea how the legacy of darkness one works.

Very underrated game. And the main theme of the game was just plain EPIC.
