Expert Review

  • Excerpt: Konami beckons you back to basics. They've taken a break from the Metroid build and revived the retro structure with Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth . It's not only structure that returns. There's something in the quality of the music that stirs memories of pumping quarters into Vs. Castlevania at the arcade and popping Bloodlines into a Genesis. Even the graphics, vibrant and yet dreary, call to mind that lovely old cabinet and console greats.

Castlevania: The Adventure Rebirth

  • Excerpt: Poor Christopher Belmont. Nobody cares about him. Despite being part of a legendary clan of vampire hunters, most gamers have never heard of him. Those few that have, however, try their best to forget he ever existed. With good reason, too; Adventure is arguably the worst Castlevania ever conceived. Considering how awful Simon’s Quest and Judgment are, that’s saying something.

Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth (Wii) - Review

VGChartz
26 February 2010
  • Excerpt: Konami continues to successfully deliver new installments of their Rebirth series with Castlevania the Adventure Rebirth for the WiiWare. Although the new episode still shares the old ‘Castlevania Adventure’ moto from the 1989 Gameboy release, it’s really a new game of the ‘Vampire Hunter’ saga, and it returns to the gameplay roots it enjoyed during the golden age of the NES and SNES where the main focus was on the action while exploration took a back seat.

Storming the castle again.

  • Conclusion: I still don't get the doubly-capitalized monicker "ReBirth" that Konami has been giving its retro-inspired downloadable games ( Gradius ReBirth , Contra ReBirth ), but since I already beat that horse to death, saw it become undead, and then beat it to death again, I'll refrain from that. Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth is the latest in the series, and while it isn't as good as I'd hoped it'd be, it's certainly the best of the three.
  • Pros: Much better than previous games, Brings back the 8-bit glory, Some 'new' additions feel unnecessary, Totally want a , now!
  • Cons: Not much of a personality, None of the additions from, Fairly short with little replay value

Castlevania the Adventure ReBirth Review

GamerNode
18 January 2010
  • Excerpt: The Castlevania series is a franchise that has struggled with an identity crisis. The first Castlevania introduced the world to a gothic side-scrolling adventure. The sequel, Simon’s Quest , introduced RPG elements and tried to vary the formula. Simon’s Quest wasn’t as well received at the time (something about having to crouch in front of a random block to progress might have contributed), and Konami went back to the side-scrolling action with Castlevania 3 .

Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth review (WII)

HonestGamers
14 January 2010
  • Excerpt: Here you'll find Death with his sickles and blades whirling madly around him, possessing a visage rendered more menacing than ever before by redrawn artwork. Here you'll find the Colossus with a hulking frame that fills the entire screen and shakes the whole chamber around him, here the familiar vampire bat that you've been battling since the original

Castlevania: The Adventure Rebirth

Game Over Online
12 January 2010
  • Excerpt: First released on the original Game Boy in 1989, Castlevania: The Adventure has returned two decades later with a re-imagined level layout, some gameplay upgrades, and a far more impressive color palette. Newer ‘Vania fans accustomed to the “Metroidvania” romps of the past decade will be in for a bit of a shock because unlike that incarnation of the series, this entry doesn’t have free-roaming gameplay.
