I believe the price was $25 (still is at EB) originally, but now it reflects the GH price, even though you should have little trouble picking up the non-GH version. At my B&M store it was only $15, so happy hunting to those of you who have been looking to get this game for cheap and are picky about the GH label.

Am I stupid for not getting this for $27 new (non-GH) when I had the chance this weekend?

You fool! Go back and get it. That is, of course, you don't like exceptional games. You do like exceptional games, right? Right?

This is a good game but by no means for everyone. It is a puzzle based dungeon crawl RPG with tons of backtracking and a steep learning curve. Hardly a RPG if you ask me, almost no story elements or anything either.

Its too bad you're still a prick with a stupid gimmick.

Did you even play the game? There are maybe 10 puzzles throughout the whole game. And back-tracking? There's some, but not much. And no story?!?! Did you have your eyes closed and your ears plugged throughout all the cinematics?

Sorry, you're oppinions are much more valid and "correct" than mine. It's official, this is the best game ever and you are obviously an absolute ass if you don't get it regardless of the price.

almost no story elements or anything either.

I'm sorry, but I have to agree with Rusty on this one. Granted, there's gaps during the game with no story, at one point even for a few hours, but when there is story, it's marvelous. I wouldn't call it the best game ever, but it was still very good.

Glad we see eye to eye. :wink:

word.

this game os one of my personal best on the psx.

its map is freakin awesome! Ive never played PS2 Castlevania but this game's labyrinth-like map was hella overlooked by castlevania fans!

but yah, it does have a steep learning curve. first time thru you wont use any weapon but the sword (and Ive only played thru it once...).

still once you learn combat and learn to get around the map (teleporting your ass off everywhere) u can find one of the deepest and most engaging games psx has to offer.

This is another one of the "This game is okay, but gets a little too much credit because it was released by Square" games.

How the game is presented is brilliant, a sorta comic book-ish feel. The score was well done also.

The combat was really a mixed bag. The fighting was well done, but the modification was just really poor. It looked amazing on paper, but yeesh. No person should have to resort to a guide book to actually understand any element of a game properly. If missed one particular stone for the upcoming set of enemies, you were basically screwed.

I guess if you're a collector, its worth picking up as a non-GH. I know my non-GH copy resides next to my other non-GH Square titles. But as a game, its really one of those hard to recommend because one element was done very awkwardly and it could possibly ruin the experience.

wow... so conflicted... i wonder if i should buy it? d'oh, it's up to 17.99 now! :(

Well, to be honest, it's hard for people to be outraged about something once they know the facts. And it takes more effort to dig up facts than be outraged. ;)

I bought this VS about 2 years ago and I definately recommend it. I think it's a great change of pace for any RPG fan. Also, it's one of those PS1 games that takes advantage of the smoothing effect on the PS2. So by turning on the option on the PS2, the game looks a somewhat better. This thread reminds me that I should play through it again to open up the secret dugeons.

I sell the GH version for $16.99 new.

Also be aware that the used version does NOT guarantee a manual or cover.

This is a pre-owned video game. It is guaranteed to work on your Sony Playstation game console, and may not include a box or an instruction manual.


Also you may even recieve the GH version...there is nothing there to indicate otherwise.
