Impressions? Not sure when I'll be able to get the game. Want to wait until my new box so I don't have to worry about the download arcade games on same HDD/console combo crap.

It is pretty good, I had never played a Castlevania game but the demo alone convinced me to get the full version.

It can be annoying when you die and lose a poop load of progress, I didn't know anything about the save points the first time I played through so I had to start again =(

The achievements sound pretty good too, even though I only have two at the moment. Overall, a good game. Very little to complain about so far.

Okay, I've never actually played any Castlevania-games, maybe tried some random Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest shit, but I'm seriously thinking about downloading this game. Everyone is praising it. Is it seriously THAT good? Is it worth of 800 Microsoft Points? How long it takes to complete the game anyway?

Well worth 800 points. It's gona take a while to get all the achievements, mainly the explore 200.6% of the castle one, but they are all doable. Hopefully the're not glitched like the TMNT one last week.

awesome game when u consider its replay value. definitely one of the top 2-3 games on PS1. Probably the best live arcade game to date.
