Super Castlevania IV was one of the killer app titles that helped the Super Nintendo propel itself in popularity. Here is the review for this game. Do you agree with it? Let us know below.

One of the first SNES games and still one of the best.  It has some of the best music in the series (and that’s saying something).

 

It’s somewhat frustrating that Konami never made another game in this style.  I wonder if that has to do with so many of their staff leaving to form Treasure.

I really loved Circle Of The Moon and Symphony of the Night the best.. I’m going to have to hunt this down and give it another shot for sure. At least its better than Dracula X!

Circle of the Moon is VERY underrated.  One of the best for sure.  It also has its own unique feel.  It follows the SotN formula, just not TOO closely.

I also thoroughly enjoyed the Nintendo 64 games and thought they were pretty fun to play as well. I never really got a chance to play the new 1 on the Xbox 360, but I heard that it was very fun.

I couldn’t stand Castlevania 64.  Maybe it’s because I played it after the N64 was “dead”, but the game has not aged well.

I like this review, it’s a shame I passed on so many an occasion to buy this great game. It looks quality and if the music is up to score I’ll have to make this a priority purchase.

I do own the other SNES one available – Vampire’s Kiss it’s called in US/EU but I have the SFC version entitled Dracula XX. That goes for a lot of dosh so it was one of my best ever buys. I think I got it about a year or so ago for $30 inc post. Even back then it was going for around $60 so God only knows what it fetches now.

This game has arguably the best soundtrack on the SNES.  You won’t be disappointed.  It’s also one of the best playing games n the series, due to the eight-way whip (something Konami never went back to).

I would like to pick this came up but I’m pretty sure it’s on the more expensive side compared the cheaper Super Nintendo games.. I do like a good action side scroller though

I like the 8-way whip implementation, wonder why they dropped it from every other game. Dracula XX is rock hard so this might make things a little easier with more scope to attack.

I don’t really care for the with being a directions. I never got why people really seem to favor that… I just jump and whip things, maybe I just got really good at it.
