I missed Gradius ReBirth, and Contra ReBirth was underwhelming. Naturally, I didn't have incredibly high expectations of the third ReBirth game.
Imagine my surprise when I played Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth, only to find out that it was pretty good. The Castlevania series has been away from its 'roots' ever since the smash hit, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, reinvented the series from the ground up."
