In an era of classics, minis, and collections where rewind buttons, remixed roms, and refined emulation have become common perks for people revisiting classics, old games are getting the royal treatment these days. Unfortunately, the Castlevania Anniversary Collection has none of those. But it does boast the best games, emulation warts and all, of any recent collection (the Mega Man Legacy Collection is its closest rival). Most of the eight Castlevania games compiled here feel great, look great, and sound great, and though the only real emulation feature is a single save state per game, that’s enough. The Castlevania games are that good.
