Stage 3 has a horrible, horrible section where you're jumping from column to column, and there are skeletons and medusa heads trying their damnedest to knock you into a pit. You get knocked in, you lose the best ending. Period. It's horrible, it's too soon in the game to be pulling that crap.
I agree, it's horrible. I absolutely lohated that part until I used savestates. Also don't get me started on the final boss fight...
You are putting words in peoples' mouths. No one (to my knowledge) thinks Drac X Snes is a "terrible piece of shit."
The person I was responding to, which happens to be SunGodPortal, said it's a "cheap piece of shit". Sure I changed a word, but I don't think it's too much of a pervertion of what he said, or that it makes so much a difference.
It baffles me how you can consider the stripped-down, pastel, MIDI-quality version a superior game to the Turbo CD
You are putting wods in people's mouth. No one (to my knownledge) thinks that MIDI-quality version of Dracula X on the SNES are supperior to the Turbo CD version.
What I said is that the music was the same , not that music quality is the same. And Dractula X has excellent music quality for SNES standards. It's not CD obviously because that wasn't technically possible - but it certainly sounds good and close to the best of what the SNES can technically do. Unfortunately, the other parts of Dracula X are, as we already discussed.... arghh...
You are very much on the wrong side of this argument.
I wasn't arguing anything in the first place. I was just stating my opinion that Rondo of Blood disapointed me, and that I wanted to love this game but, alas, couldn't. That does not mean I consider the game to be bad, just average. When it was supposed to be incredibly amazing masterpiece people told me it was, this is quite
9 out 10 people throughout the game's history have utterly gone against you, that's what I mean. History is formed by opinions, you know. The saying goes "The winners write the history books."
I am not getting what you are trying to tell me nor what this has to do with History, but if what you meant is that 9 out of 10 people think Rondo of Blood is an amazing game, then I agree with you. This used to only add more to my expectations - and to my disapointment, just like I said.
You must rescue her in Stage 2, and complete the level. That's it. You don't have to beat the game.
That's probably the part that made me rage quit the game, since doing that was almost impossible. You had to race against a giant monster (which is also present in Dracula X) and get a key item without loosing it, ever (something which also exist in Dracula X), and which is frustrating as you are obliged to use the horrible CV1 whip.
Castlevania Dracula X has such a short amount of recovery time that you can get hit multiple times by the same enemy and even knocked into a pit.
Is there any difference between the 2 games in this regard ?
