2-D Castlevania is the best kind, as proven by this late, RPG-inspired entry into the franchise. The first level, where you tore shit up as a fully powered Alucard, was a great jolt of adrenaline. The Castlevania games, dating all the way back to the 8-Bit days, had epic soundtracks, and this one was no different. This particular piece of ominous music came from the final level, when you stormed Dracula's Castle.
