Rate the Game: Week 34

Poll is now closed in regards to last week's Half-Life. At the end of the day it earns itself an average score of 3.83, which is criminally lowball if you ask me. Well, it secures a spot in the top 20 at least. Here's the leaderboard as it currently stands...

1. Super Mario Bros. 3 (4.7)
2. Donkey Kong Country (4.44)
3. Super Mario Bros. (4.41)
4. Metal Gear Solid (4.33)
5. Super Street Fighter 2 (4.15)
6. Sonic the Hedgehog (4.14)
7. Super Mario 64 (4.07)
8. (TIE) Grand Theft Auto 3 (4.06), The Legend of Zelda (4.06)
10. (TIE) NBA Jam (4.0), Super Mario Kart (4.0)
12. Final Fantasy 7 (3.94)
13. Mega Man (3.89)
14. Half-Life (3.83)
15. Devil May Cry (3.8)
16. Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver (3.7)
17. Mortal Kombat 2 (3.67)
18. Diablo (3.66)
19. StarFox (3.61)
20. (TIE) Doom (3.6), Mortal Kombat (3.6)
22. Resident Evil (3.58)
23. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater (3.39)
24. Resident Evil: Nemesis (3.38)
25. Killer Instinct (3.5)
26. Quake (3.2)
27. (TIE) Time Crisis (3.0), Tekken (3.0)
29. (TIE) Silent Hill (2.6), The Sims (2.6)
31. (TIE) Tomb Raider (2.5), Halo (2.5)
33. Gran Turismo (2.3)

And with that we move right along into this week. Let's pull another game out of the mix...




...and we got it. The game to rate this week is....Castlevania (NES). We're back to old school with this title. I know there are people with stories about this game but how does it rate with you? Take the poll and discuss below. Until next week!



No matter what may happen to me, just remember Lzzy Hale gave me the bedroom eyes.

4

Absolute classic. Only reason it doesn’t get a 5 is because Castlevania 3 exists, and showed how much better it could be.

I gave it a because it was the first one, but i'm not sure it's even in the top 5 of Castlevania games. ( I'm sure it's not actually )

A classic, but the latter games are much better, specifically Symphony of the Night and the DS/GBA ones.
The 3D castlevanias are ass.

I don't factor in a zero when it comes to the score. It's just a measure as to how popular or common a game is amongst us.

Clearly Simon's Quest is superior.

Castlevania 2 was ahead of its time. It couldve been so much more of a better game if they waited until the SNES to create it.

he does not know "whats up"

-castlevania 2 on a technical level is stunning. its the 1st console open world adventure game ever.

-it has a revolutionary password system to track your inventory and progress in said open world game.

-it has what to this day is one of the best OSTs of all time.

99% of criticisms against Simon's Quest are all related to the fact its a terrible LOCALIZATION.

The game is outstanding. The team tha translated are not. there is a fan translation thats out there now that fixes it and the towns folk now provide usable directions. the moment you dont feel constantly lost this game isnt bad.

worst final boss fight ever tho

Castlevania 2 was the second video game I ever owned as a child. Will always have fond memories of it. Gonna have to abstain from voting on the original though as it is the only one I never played.

Gave it a 4 mostly because the real rating would have been more like a 3.5 if half a points were allowed and 3 being too low for a game of its quality.

The music and overall gameplay were great but never bothered to complete it because of some of the gameplay design choices made. Think the most I ever got was around halfway.

Castlevania 2 might be worse with it but was never that fond of the jumping system and the way hits knocked you back a bit too much in the early Castlevania games. Going from the smooth jumping system in Mario games to the one used in the NES Castlevania series was rough.
