The most legendary game from the Playstation console is on XboxLive Arcade. Play as Alucard, son of Dracula, on a huge quest through a maze of castle rooms against hundreds of different monsters and demons. This game packs enough weapons, armors, unique abilities, and secrets to keep you playing for days. This is one adventure you do not want to miss out on!

Pros: Mass quantity of weapons, armor/shields, cloaks, and accessories allows for hundreds of   different combinations and strategies,  shapeshifting and spellcasting fit  into the game nicely, level design and background art  are simply beautiful, free roam  of an enormous castle feels great, truly memorable avatar for Alucard, smooth game  controls, unique boss fights, hundreds of different enemies to fight and conquer…did I  mention you’re the son of Dracula? Sweetness, I know.

Cons: Voice acting could be better, late game can become rather easy for skilled players, to get 100% completion you must cover all squares on the map which is very tedious

*Note: Alucard is Dracula spelled backwards if you didn’t notice.
