Well reviewed. When you break it down like that, Castlevania 3 really does have very few weak points. Had I been reviewing it, I would have gone into some of the frustrations (fixed jumping, for instance) but you cover that by saying it's less frustrating than the previous games (I've barely played them so I wouldn't know, but I'll take your word for it). Not the way I'd have done it, but putting Dracula's Curse in the context of its series works.

'There would be tears and there would be strange laughter. Fierce births and deaths beneath umbrageous ceilings. And dreams, and violence, and disenchantment.'

Thank you, Sam. I've come to appreciate this game more over the years. I originally reviewed it at 8/10 at GameFAQs, but having played it recently I found I liked it that much more. It's one of the few games I would say aged better than expected. But yeah, it's definitely not a 10 for everyone.

The only thing my milkshake brings to the yard is a subpoena.
