Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles PSP Review

Console Obsession
30 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles is like offering gallons of blood to Lord Dracula then taking it away from him just as he‘s about to have a sip, which is to say it teases you somewhat fiendishly, having you know that there are two unlock able games on the UMD and then making you work hard to obtain them, nasty game. But we’ll get to that a little later on, if that’s ok with you?

Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles

The Gamers Temple

  • Excerpt: By Jason Nimer Castlevania has historically been one of the few gaming franchises that almost never disappoints the fans. While the 3D entries of recent years haven’t been all that great, the 2D “stick to the roots” releases are never short of fantastic. Early 2D Castlevania games were side-scrolling platform games with huge, unforgettable boss fights.

Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles

Game Boyz
25 June 2008
  • Excerpt: Our good friends at Konami sent us a late Christmas present in the form of Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles for the Sony PSP. Being an absolute Castlevania junkie I jumped at the chance to review this title. The game is not new though as it is a re-imagining of an old classic that never made it to our shores unless you imported it. The game ran on what was one of the most revered systems in Japan at the time, the PC Engine Duo (NEC).

A 3-in-1 remake of classic vampire hunting games.

Common Sense Media

  • Summary: Parents need to know that while the ESRB warns about violence and blood, this T-rated side-scroller's images are so small that the acts of killing enemies aren't too graphic. Players will be killing fictitious beasts including vampires, imps, skeletons, dragons, and minotaurs. They can use a whip to defeat monsters, some of which will leave blood before dying.

Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles

Playstation Illustrated
31 May 2008
  • Excerpt: It's possible to poke holes in Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles , but it most definitely is the most compelling example of classic gaming on the PSP. True retro-gaming fans may disagree and point to collections of 8-bit titles such as the Atari, Namco, or Midway releases. Each to his or her own, of course, but in my memory of classic gaming experiences, Castlevania ranks up there with Tomb Raider, Mega Man, Madden, and Final Fantasy .

Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles Review

29 April 2008
  • Excerpt: Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles is hard. Really, really hard. It's a reminder of how things used to be, before everyone got hot and bothered about making games appeal to more casual audiences, about making games easy enough to finish and about making games for the Nintendo Wii. Is this a good thing? For hardcore Castlevania fans it will be, but, in the grand scheme of things, a really hard game, so hard it makes you mad, isn't that good.

Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles (PSP)

The Review Busters
3 April 2008
  • Conclusion: This is a great collection for the PSP. As of late the PSP has really been releasing some great games and on top of that list are all the remakes. Yes I think remakes are stupid, but any more I think I’d rather buy the same game again than buy a few original games that get old after a few days. Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles has a lot to offer for its small price tag though wanting to buy this for a portable version of Symphony of the Night would be a mistake.
