I've been a fan of Castlevania since the old 8-bit days, and when I heard that a castlevania fighter was on the Wii I thought "Doubly cool!" But alas my anticipation was dashed against the rocks of mediocre reality. I was hoping for a great game full of devistating combos and monster smashing attacks but instead found myself flinging my Wiimote around like a colossal tool! If you like Castlevania don't rent this stinker, it sucks worse than Dracula himself.

I was really disappointed in this game. Mainly because I don't really like fighting games. I mean I have to hand it to them the graphics are insane, but the game play was hard to learn and by the time I did, I was ready to check out my other game. Just didn't hold my interest. So if you like fighting games, you might like this one. I was hoping for more Castlevania, and I was very much let down. Please Konami come out with a cool playable Castlevania game for us die hard fans.
I was interested in this game for a while, but something told me to borrow or rent it before buying it. After it came in the mail I understood why; aside from there not being any real storyline or plot, the contols themselves were veery jerky and hard to register, even with the classic controller. The graphics and stages were good and the dialogue great for a fighting game. All in all one only for long time fans of the franchise.
