Even after all these years, Super Castlevania IV is still a fantastic game and the best entry in its old-school iteration.
Absolutely. The same applies for Contra 1-3.
Absolutely it does!
I still play it once in a while, timeless classic
Still get hyped in the very first level when that music slowly intros and kicks off.
Damn right it does!!!
Its a great game but for the era it came from, I have always thought Bloodlines on Genesis was the better 16bit Castlevania
Definitely a really good game. I think the difference maker is the graphics and the music. Richter was a hell of a lot more agile in his game. Simons game was slower, but damn was that music dramatic and the graphics were next level.
I was disappointed in Super Castlevania when it came out . I was hoping it would be more like 2 with rpg elements and such . It was still a good game
They really pushed the system to its limits right out of the gate, with all the mode 7 effects and background layers, as well as the amazing music. I never really saw any later games use those graphics techniques like the rotating cylinder style background.
The answer is YES. What was the question. Oh. Definite YES. There are 2D games today that still don't match the gameplay or music to this game. That should tell you right there.
It's Castlevania yes it still holds up so does Bloodlines on Genesis and Castlevania on NES. Contra also still holds up SOTN also still holds up. Ninja Gaiden even though not Konami also still holds up to this date in my eyes older games do still hold up. A person whether a gaming noob who has never played something like a NES, SMS, Genesis, SNES if they are having fun playing an older game then the game is holding up also goes with the person who cracks out the SNES and plays Castlevania 4. If they are having fun reliving their childhood with the older game then yes the game is still holding up.
