A very welcome double pack featuring two of the series' most notable entries, but which inexplicably ruins the meme-inspiring intro of Symphony Of The Night.

Castlevania: Requiem is a good reminder of the best parts of the series but the collection also makes it more evident that Konami is maybe currently not adept enough to create thrilling new experiences and is only capable of haphazardly bundling together old ones in hopes that we won't notice the difference.

Castlevania Requiem is a lost opportunity. The comeback of a couple of masterpieces that are lacking in improvements from a technical point of view and are difficult to recommend to everyone nowadays.

Castlevania Requiem is just a port of the unlockable Symphony of the Night and Rondo of Blood from The Dracula X Chronicles. That said, this are two of the best Castlevania titles, which also means two of the best games ever made.

Overall, Castlevania Requiem is an excellent collection of two very important as well as very different Castlevania games. If you have enjoyed the recent Netflix series and don't know much about the games it is based off, then this is probably the perfect collection to get to grips with the saga.

Two great games in one shallow package. Both Rondo of Blood and Symphony of the Night are still enjoyable, but Konami could and should have done something more.

Castlevania Requiem: Symphony of the Night & Rondo of Blood does the bare minimum, but it's still well worth playing. While there are no extras included in this anthology, the two games it contains are some of the best ever made, and one of them has been pretty difficult to come by until now. Aside from the replacement of Symphony of the Night's wonderfully campy voice acting, both games are delivered in perfect shape and are still as worth playing today as they've ever been.

Castlevania Requiem brings to modern consoles what made the franchise successful in the first place. Requiem is not perfect and offers little extra in terms of modernization, but it stays true to the original vision.
