Nintendo Life writes: "We've already seen Konami resurrect two of their most popular gaming franchises with WiiWare's Gradius and Contra ReBirth, so it comes as no real surprise to see them giving the same treatment to yet another much-loved classic series: Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth. Despite its title, this actually has very little in common with the original Game Boy release. Other than a couple of gameplay touches here and there, such as the flaming whip upgrade, you wouldn't know that this game even had anything to do with it. Instead ReBirth chooses a hodge-podge of classic 8- and 16-bit Castlevania ideas to form an all-new experience. So how exactly does this title stack up against past Castlevania classics?"
