I have bought this game around Christmas time of last year. The game is somewhat like Soul Calibur with all of the one-liners and cut scenes as well. But there is more freedom of movement and the moves are also much more easier. The characters are also good, it has a mixture of old and new characters ranging from Simon Belmont (a well known vampire hunter) to Shanoa (from Order of Ecclesia), and you can even play as Count Dracula himself. There is also a lot of features that you can unlock either by playing story mode or castle mode (which is where you have to defeat your opponent under specific conditions or with a specific item or move). Plus, every character has their own moves and even a hyper move in which your character can perform a move that can either score 99 hits or cause major damage and even defeat your opponent.
