Duck Tales! WooOoohoo! A video game by Capcom featuring probably my all time favorite Disney character, gazillionaire Scrooge McDuck. Licensed games tend to be bad but I played Duck Tales a lot as a kid and liked it a lot so I played it again along with the new remastered version on the Wii U. Let’s see if the old one holds up and if the new one does it justice!
So it has come to this… We have gone through the main classic Castlevania games which only means that we have to rank them from best to worst. Check it out and see if you agree! Or flame us if you don’t 🙂
To qualify for this list the game has to be a pre-Symphony of the Night Castlevania game, or in other words not a “metroidvania” game.
Sega finally gets some of that Castlevania action! This time set in the 1st world war. Two vampire hunters face the resurrection of Dracula in the absence of the Belmonts. John Morris who is the successor of the Vampire Killer whip of the Belmont clan and Eric Lecarde who wields the Alucard spear join hands in Castlevania’s first shot at a Sega console. Let’s see how they did!
This rare gem is the Castlevania made for the Turbografx 16 or “PC Engine” in Japan. The reason it is so rare is because it was released only in Japan and only for the PC Engine CD add-on which was expensive and not as popular as the SNES in Japan. A copy in good condition is being sold from around 160$, 110GDP or 150EUR. The PC Engine itself costs about the same. You can buy that,or buy it on the PSP/Wii virtual console 🙂
Let’s see if it is worth the hefty price tag.
The Castlevania series continues and this time on the next generation! The SNES got it’s anticiapted Castlevania release in 1991. Let’s see how the transition to 16-bit was for the Castlevania series!
The first Metroid game is widely known as a great game and a start of a legendary series, i played it a few times as a kid, didn’t get very far and kind of just brushed it off as a difficult, cryptic game. This time i started playing it with the determination of finishing it, and that is what i did. Let’s see how it went and see if you should play it too! We also look at Super Metroid, another legendary game that you should maybe play before the original game.
