most hated N64 Game
Posted 28 November 2012 - 12:15 AM
I also saw Castlevania 64, another terrible game, I hear. IF I GOT IT, IT WOULD BE MY FIRST CASTLEVANIA...!
If it's your first Castlevania, you'll probably be fine with it. Castlevania 64 is not actually a terrible game. It's definitely flawed and not up to par with more noteworthy action/adventure games on the Nintendo 64. The game can be frustrating and very challenging, but I really enjoyed playing it.
It was my first Castlevania, and I still consider it a fine game. However, having played most of the other Castlevania games at this point, I understand completely why it got a bad reputation. In particular, Symphony of the Night was released two years prior to 64 and was the first "Metroidvania" Castlevania game. Symphony of the Night is a vastly superior game. It's easy to see why Castlevania fans were disappointed with 64.
EDIT: I just went looking...critics were actually pretty nice to Castlevania 64. http://www.metacriti.../critic-reviews
