Stuck with it to end of stage 3.Yes, very nicely done in audio/Visual terms, but as i feared, feels like a mish mash of standard platform fare.Nothing has really stood out or grabbed me as being special, everything feels like it`s been 'lifted' from somewhere else. Also, the foes you face:Very mixed bag, some superb and seem to have great deal of thought put into, whilst others? Just seem cliched and bloody annoying. Snes/MD/Arcade offer me far better examples of what`s on offer here.

While I love the music (and who doesn't?), I think it's aged really badly, especially in comparison the the newer games in the franchise. It feels so clunky now, and while it provides a modicum of awesomeness (mainly of the rose-tinted variety), I just don't feel it plays that well.

It's a bit too hardcore for me, that's why I can't get along with it.
At best I am an averagely skilled games player, and Super Castlevania needs you to be at least 'good' to get anywhere into it.

only played a few of the castlevania games and basically (excuse this term...) I suck at them. Besides Dracula X:Rondo of blood I've never been anygood at them, there just too damn hard....maybe its my advancing years and the sloth like reflexs but professor laytons more my speed nowadays (and im only 29 sob sob)

Too easy! The whole eight-direction whipping thing makes everything too easy, and those boring mode 7 bits just go on forever and ever and ever. I like the disembodied horse heads though.

I've always found SC IV to be disappointingly slow and boring. It's not that I mind the linear gameplay - I don't demand 'Metroidvania' style exploring and exploration - the game just doesn't get the adrenaline pumping.
My favourite Castlevania is probably New Generation/Bloodlines. A controversial choice and a less polished game but very action packed and fast paced - and two characters to play with.

Never really felt compelled to play it at the time after being brutalised by Castlevania on the NES.
