Excerpt: By Hans Niedermair The 16-bit era is home to an abundance of excellent games that were rarely played on North American shores, either because they were only available on the third-bestselling system, or because they were never published here. Originally released only in Japan in 1993 on the PC Engine CD – known as the TurboGrafx-CD on these shores – Castlevania: Rondo of Blood falls into both of those categories.
Conclusion: Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth is just about everything an old-school fan could hope for, and it's probably the best title in the ReBirth series thus far. The various difficulty settings are balanced really well, and the overall level design is expertly crafted. Tons of options and features make for a great retro package Wii owners really shouldn't miss out on.
