Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles PSP Review

 

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...

Because of the difficulty in obtaining the games and the fact that Rondo of blood is not quite great, Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles loses a point or two. A lot of people will not see, perhaps the best that the UMD has to offer, and that's sad.

Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles

 

Hmmm. I really don't know about this. I mean on the one hand Castlevania's whole side-scrolling, whip-cracking, action-platformer thing is so out dated you have to wonder why they keep bothering. But, on the other hand, you have the fact that over the...

The Castlevania games deserve respect for being one of the only series to continue the tradition of side scrolling action games after the rest of the world went full-3D crazy. The problem is that while to the existing fan base the retro design and...

Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles

 

Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles will be too difficult for the average gamer to get into - this one's for the fans.

Tonnes of gameplay - two classic Castlevania games included ; Remixed graphics are top

Gameplay can be infuriatingly frustrating ; Too hard for most gamers

For non-hardcore Castlevania fans though, The Dracula X Chronicles will be too difficult to get into. Would it have been too much to ask for an easy difficulty setting? It's a shame - the game is certainly rewarding and fun if you can get into it....

Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles (PSP) review

 

A return... to the town, and to form

As a snapshot of the halcyon days of Castlevania, The Dracula X Chronicles is well worth playing – and as an argument for 2.5D there is no stronger case. But the fact it is no more than an aesthetic update hurts.

Prince of hardness

Of course, widening the pool of people who play video games can only be a good thing: it will result in more games being made in a wider range of shapes and sizes

Hands on with Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles

 

Someone seriously needs to find a way to kill Dracula. Garlic, holy water, wooden stakes – the dude takes it all and manages to resurrect year after year in new

In working our way through the first stage, entitled 'Dinner of Flames', we guided Belmont through a burning village and entered Dracula's castle. Although the game bears a slick new three-dimensional presentation, you still play from a side-scrolling...

Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles (Konami)

 

Outstanding remake of a classic title, tons of extras and loads of replayablity

High difficulty may turn off some gamers, voice acting is soap opera fare

Chronicles is a game that all Castlevania freaks must play and the inclusion of the amazing Symphony of the Night is just the cherry on top. If you own a PSP, there is no excuse for you to not own this title.

Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles

 

There are a plethora of video games that have never seen American, European, or Japanese soil. While many may believe this an atrocity there are certain factors that keep these games at bay. Whether its cultural differences or money issues, publishers...

Dracula X Chronicles is an excellent addition to anyones PSP library with its challenging, albeit, limited gameplay and the addition of the masterpiece Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles

 

Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles for the PSP is a port of the until now Japan-only Castlevania: Rondo of Blood. Rondo of Blood is more like Super Castlevania IV (SNES) than Symphony of the Night (PSX, 360) so those whose who enjoy Castlevania...

Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles Review

 

TVG heads to Transylvania and tracks down the Prince of Darkness' resurrection from the PC Engine days...

Whole new Castlevania for the West ; Re-vamped 2.5D visuals ; The sheer challenge

Irritating soundtrack ; Symphony of the Night is locked at the start ; PSP runs the risk of getting smashed to pieces

Demonically difficult, heart-shatteringly hard, Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles is a gamer's game. Solid in both respects of the word, Konami's elderly iconic franchise fits perfectly on PSP for some vampire killing on the move...even if you do...
