Official description

Dracula's a tough fellow to pin down, so to speak, so it's no surprise that the popular Castlevania series has resurrected the nefarious guy nearly every year since the game's 1987 debut. Legacy of Darkness is both a prequel and an update to the early 1999 release, Castlevania, for the Nintendo 64. Set eight years prior to its predecessor's narrative, the creepy story introduces a new main character, Cornell, a young gent who moonlights as a werewolf. Dracula's posse has kidnapped Cornell's younger sister, and the man-wolf must conquer a collection of enemies, including Dracula himself, to save her. In addition to Cornell's quest, players can experience entirely unique adventures from the viewpoint of three other characters, adding to the game's replayability.

Comment

You are the werewolf! It's not as cool as it sounds, but you do get possibly the most involved storyline in Castlevania history (spanning over an entire decade). The graphics and targeting are somewhat of a problem, but I still find this to be a fun game--much, MUCH better than the original N64 Castlevania.
