5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest 2-d platformer ever created!, 2 Jun. 2004
This review is from: Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (PS) (Video Game)
Hark back to the days Castlevania was knocking about on the NES, SNES and Megadrive - they were quality games. Now think what the programmers can create with a CD's capacity and the Playstations power. All I can say is - WOW!
If you remember Richter Belmont the game starts off with him and his whip, he destroys the Count Dracula and then the game starts. Dracula's castle re-appears and this time a vampire named Alucard (what is it about vampires spelling their names backwards?) takes up the challenge to rid the world of the evil Count.
There is the original castle to work through and this is big, bigger than any previous game, and there are plenty of secrets to find.
The graphics are good with some great hidden effects like the waterfall. Good bosses. Huge array of swords, magic & transformations for the main character (Alucard) to choose from. He can transfigure into a bat/wolf/mist/poison gas cloud, all of which have special attacks.
There must be about 40/50 weapons. You can kit out the main character with armour, shields, talismans, gaunlets - you name it.
The music fits very well.
But the main strength of this game is it's playability.
It's very, very hard to stop playing it, I've had this game on & off for about 3 years and I keep coming back to it. I believe it beats all the olds, if you liked games like Super Metroid, Mario - All Stars/ World, or even Sonic in the old classic arcade style of play you will love this.
Just one word sums it up - class.
