The first Castlevania title for Nintendo Wii is a dramatic step away from the classic platform action fans have come to expect - this is a 3D one-on-one fighting game that brings together the many generations of heroic vampire hunters as well as Dracula's most formidable allies in a battle to the death!

It's no surprise that with such a rich history of characters to choose from thanks to the sheer number of previous Castlevania titles, each of the 14 characters players can choose from have many unique attributes and fighting styles that require mastering. Whether players choose Simon Belmont, the legendary vampire hunter or Dracula himself, moves, techniques and strategies differ greatly depending on their choice of fighter.

The 3D battle arenas will be familiar to fans of the games and also offer the chance to interact with the surroundings. The familiar candelabra-style power ups can be broken to reveal boosts or used as weapons themselves and the cleverly designed arenas offer further challenges as they can be used to differ attacks and battle strategies.

Players can duel against a friend offline or online and there are a variety of single-player modes to work through. Castle Mode gives users the chance to unlock costumes and items as they wander through rooms defeating enemies, Survival Mode will test the stamina of any player as they attempt to stave off as many enemies as they can before dying and as well as the Arcade and Story Modes, there's a full Tutorial Mode to ease players into the game with minimum fuss.

 Worst fighting game ever!

| | See all Megajoa9's reviews (1)

This is one of the worst games I've ever played.
The controls are terrible, the character design is hideous and the overall gameplay is just messed up. The only thing that is okay is the music. Avoid this game at all costs!

 Enjoyable, but needed a bit of work!

The series of Castlevania have come far to give us that 2D quality gaming which is greatly considered it's trademark for the past 30 years..then this game come out and for a while i thought it to be a butchered fighter, i gave it a go. and its not that bad!

the controls are not stupid to play but it does take skill, in this type of genre practice makes perfect but don't expect to learn all of them, it looked like it needed more work, but wasn't the Wii remote all about swinging it like a weapon?.

the characters are all there from the series, the ones we all know and love. Simon, Alucard & Dracula have all returned, the designs they have are perfect for fighting, and the story is like what you would expect from a fighting game all split up for different characters, there storys are from different time lines of the original titles they were represented in. Example Trevor Belmont After Curse Of Darkness, they all share different experiances with the story.

the Music has never failed in the castlevania timeline, the music is what drives you to play the game and this one is no exeption, you have to understand that although the gameplay might not satisfy you, listening to the music is always a moral in the game.

all in all, its not a bad game, sure its flawed in some aspects of gameplay, but it isn't gonna stop you from not enjoying the game, like all castevania games, all you need is patiance and a bit of skill, and you are sure to become a master Vampire Hunter.
