    I'm disappointed in this second series of Classic NES games. I'd really hoped that we were going to get Kid Icarus. Dr. Mario, Castlevania and Metroid are pretty weak offerings, especially since Metroid is available when linking Prime + Fusion, and for beating Zero Mission.

    *sigh*

    I'll get Zelda though, even though it too is already available via the GC collection.

    *sigh*

    Better question is why nintendo did not sell them in compilations, like 5 or 6 games, then someone might even bay it. :Puzzled:

    Ohhhh, this way (I'm not sure if) they can make more money?! [​IMG]

    because true gamers know it's NOT all about graphics
    gameplay is more important than loads of pretty graphics and if u think i'm wrong just take a look back in time at the true old school games,they may have what u would class as "bad graphics" but they are the true roots to all video games today and the gameplay is still superior to some of the stuff that gets released today with all the pretty graphics and shit

    Amen brotha! It's all about the gameplay. As long as we can tell what the things on screen are supposed to be, that's all that matters.

    Oh yes, and they sell separately because they actually made a small boatload of money for Ninty. I'm sure they'd have sold better in a compilation, but what can you do?

    I know that we can do much, but just example how nintendo is loosing money with bad decisions and greed.

    Back to this title, is it just me, or this game does not have much gameplay as it's very hard (talking about NES version of castelvania).

    GBA versions of this game are much better, and realy this should be as present with some new Castelvania game or some compilation with old games, but not game for it's self.


    And all what are they doing is just using ppl's nostalgia to play old games.

    This game is a true Classic, a worthy addition to the Classic NES&Famicom Mini Series

    Hell, Castlevania if one deserves to be in the series! I have to admit that I`m a bit C`Vania-fan though, but still this is one of my favorites of the entire series.

    It's not just you, the game really is quite difficult, like many old NES games. Games today are EASY! The GBA games are loosely based on the most successful Castlevania ever, Symphony of the Night for PSX; that's why they're so darn good. [​IMG]

    The GBA Castlevania games RULE!!!

    I am a collector of them so I'll buy it when it comes to Greece.
    It will probably be the last GBA game I'll buy!
