I find it hard to believe that someone who likes Rondo wouldn't like Dracula X, it's like a sequel to it with all new levels and many new bosses.

Sometimes I think Castlevania threads are populated by people who don't really like the series, just want to shitpost console wars, like australia-kun.

>> No.3817451

Ive played both. Can confirm

>> No.3817456

Rondo is better balanced. Dracula X is way too unforgiving. Plus Rondo has this:

- Two playable characters
- Savegames
- Boss demos
- Two paths through the game
- A way better soundtrack in CD quality
- Overall better level design and boss encounters

Rondo and SotN are the two Castlevania games that rule supreme!

Australia-kun is 1 guy (who is very easy to spot, since mods always delete posts with his IP, and he always complains about it). "Australia-kun" is also just a nickname, he's a britbong.

Outside from the fact it doesn't have the OP bible sub-weapon and you can't play as Maria, how does it play different?

>made a fangame

You wish a fangame looked this good, it's a late SNES title by Konami, come on. Also it plays the same, unless you can prove me otherwise, Richter still controls the same.

I don't see it, both look and play the same to me.

Also

>a bit

I thought you said it was "way to floaty" (sic), now it's just slightly and a little?

It's the same dude, you just don't like it because it's on a Nintendo system.

>> No.3817493

>>3817490
No, I though it was floaty but maybe that's because I played the PAL version (no bully)

>> No.3817496

>>3817493
That'd explain it, then.

The only real difference I see is that Richter moves his shoulders faster on DX, and slower on Rondo, but the walking speed looks slower on DX, not sure if it's an illusion because of the sprite animation though.
But the jump height and weight look and feel the same.

Dracula X SNES has inferior and lazier level designs, stupider bosses, and lower quality music. Only a retard would prefer it to Rondo.

Death on a boat is cooler than Death on the clock tower, too. And he's not even a mandatory fight in the SNES version, you have to save all the whyte womyn in order to get him. Lame.

Everywhere is kind of an exaggeration, but what's wrong with them? They made you suffer on the clock tower? Hehe.

>Shaft going from a boss rush + a rematch with him as a ghost paired up with a bone dragon to a guy that throws tombstones at you.
You're confusing Shaft with the Necromancer (a boss exclusive to Dracula X).

That said, I don't think DX is better than Rondo, but the hate DX gets is out of proportions, I don't think both games are that different outside of DX being harder. I agree with >>3817449

Death on the top of the clock tower is amazing, a fight over a boat is cool too, but I don't think it fits Death as well as a big spooky clock.

It's lazy. Ever heard of enemy variety? XX probably has half as many enemies as the Rondo version.

>You're confusing Shaft with the Necromancer (a boss exclusive to Dracula X).
Put two and two together. Shaft is a necromancer...

>>3818402

Not as many, but not as low as half of them.
To be honest, Rondo has more enemies, but less of them around levels, and some of them only appear once or twice in the whole game, which isn't a bad thing, but most of the time you'll be fighting skeletons, axe knights and lance knights... like in DX.
DX has less enemies, but more of them, more often. You might hate that repetition and prefer the more relaxed pace of Rondo (and I do, too), but that doesn't mean the other game is bad because of it, Castlevania 1 has much less enemy variety and yet it manages to feel a full game, like DX is.

>Put two and two together. Shaft is a necromancer...
Yeah it's probably inspired by the ghost shaft boss fight, but it's decidedly a brand-new boss fight that isn't mean to be the same one, not even the boss sprite is the same (DX's necromancer's sprite is much better than Shaft, you gotta admit).
