Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance Review

Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance Review

Harmony of Dissonance came out for the Gameboy Advance in 2002, hot on the heels of the much better Circle of the Moon, which I hopefully will have time to review before Halloween hits us. The player takes the role of Juste Belmont, who rather than setting out to kill Dracula, has come to investigat... Read On

Castlevania: Bloodlines Review

Castlevania: Bloodlines Review

Castlevania: Bloodlines came out for the Sega Genesis in 1994, and takes place during World War I, which is only really relevant in level 4 where you fight soldier skeletons. Like Castlevania III and Rondo of Blood, you have access to an alternate playable character, which is only really relevant in... Read On

Castlevania: Rondo of Blood Review

Castlevania: Rondo of Blood Review

Rondo of Blood was released for the PC Engine waaaay back in 1993 in Japan only. It wasn’t until 2010 that we finally got it stateside (as well as in Europe,) which is a real shame, because this game is flippin fantastic. You play as Richter Belmont, who not only is making a journey to Castlev... Read On

Super Castlevania IV Review

Super Castlevania IV Review

Simon’s back for yet more of the same in Super Castlevania IV for the Super Nintendo. Of course, this time, instead of being committed to a jump as soon as you press the button, you actually have a bit of say on where you can land. It’s not the same control that Grant had in Castlevania ... Read On

Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse Review

Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse Review

As far as the basic game mechanics go, there isn’t much difference between the three NES Castlevanias. Simon and Trevor have the same jump and the same whip. They can get the same subweapons, which behave in the same way. Of course, Trevor is joined by three companions who play slightly differ... Read On

Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest Review

Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest Review

And we’re back, broadcasting to you live from Dracula’s very own Castlevania. This time, the story is that in a gross turn of events, Simon Belmont, the hero of the first game, has to gather Dracula’s body parts and return them here to summon the dark lord himself. Which is admitte... Read On

Castlevania Review

Castlevania Review

As an avid platformer enthusiast, I’ll be bringing you reviews of the majority of the Castlevania series for Halloween, since nothing is quite as frightening as awkward jump mechanics and enemies that spawn endlessly off the edge of the screen. In case you’re somehow unaware, the series ... Read On

Gungrave: Overdose Review

Gungrave: Overdose Review

Gungrave: Overdose was originally released September 15, 2004 and is now available as a PSN download for just $10. The game takes place two years after the original Gungrave, also for PS2, but before the anime, which was very well made and i highly recommend that as well. Gungrave: Overdose ma... Read On

Friday the 13th(NES) Review

Friday the 13th(NES) Review

When you hear the phrase “Friday the 13th”, what comes to mind? “Ooh, it’s a bad luck day! Better stay inside and soak in mashed potatoes to ward off all the negative luck!”…FUCK NO! You think of Jason Voorhees! The ever-awesome, unstoppable super zombie who const... Read On
