Gamers Temple: "Ever since Castlevania took the leap to a 3-D look back in the days of the Nintendo 64 the series has seen its share of ups and downs. The 3-D games sometimes don't carry the same Castlevania feel that the 2-D Castlevanias showcase but they have brought a nice break from the usual 2-D look of the series. The 3-D games have helped to showcase a more cinematic feel to the Castlevania series even though they haven't quite hit the nail in the coffin like many of the 2-D installments. If you're a fan of the 3-D games like me though, you really look forward to any news of a next-gen Castlevania title, which is why I was so excited to hear about a new 3-D Castlevania on the Wii console, that is, until I learned that the Castlevania game in question was a... fighter? I'm usually open to new ideas so this change in genre didn't strike me that hard but it sure wasn't music to my ears.
Castlevania Judgment pulls a big list of Castlevania characters together for a tournament. Each Castlevania character is going about their normal lives until they meet up with a mysterious individual by the name of Aeon. Aeon creates a dimensional time warp that allows all Castlevania characters to cross over from different time periods to meet and fight all for the goal of having their wish granted by Aeon himself. There are altogether 14 total fighters in Castlevania Judgement: Simon Belmont, Alucard, Trevor Belmont, Sypha Belnades, Grant Danasty, Shanoa, Eric Lecarde, Cornell, Maria Renarde, Carmilla, Dracula, Death, Golem and Aeon."
