Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles PSP Review
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...
Excerpt: Date: 11/5/2007 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
PSP Review - 'Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles'
3 April 2008
Summary: Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles exclusively for the PSP delivers the classic PC Engine game Castlevania: Rondo of Blood with updated 3D graphics and new gameplay elements, the game marks the first time this groundbreaking title has been released in North America.
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.
