PlayTM: Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles Review

The Castlevania games deserve respect for being one of the only series to continue the tradition of side scrolling action games after the rest of the world went full-3D crazy. The problem is that while to the existing fan base the retro design and gameplay are all part of the experience newer gamers will probably view those same qualities in a far more negative light.

Personally PlayTM remembers loving this kind of thing back in the day but to be honest my gaming senses have moved on a fair bit since then and while it's interesting to have a glimpse back to how things used to be they didn't find anything in The Dracula X Chronicles to make them miss those times one little bit. For fans of the series or those with an urge for a highly polished slab of retro style gaming then this is undoubtedly a fantastic example of the genre, however, anyone else will find it hard to see what all the fuss is about.

The story is too old to be commented.
