The Nerd makes his first ever game review, and tries to tackle Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest for the NES, revealing the many flaws and issues that came with it. This is Angry Video Game Nerd Episode 1.
In this debut from the character we now all know as The Angry Video Game Nerd, Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest is The Nerd’s first video game victim. Released on the Nintendo Entertainment System just a year after the first in the series, it should have been equally as acclaimed. Though as it’s the focus of an AVGN video, there are of course numerous shortcomings which prevent Simon’s Quest from hitting the same highs as the original Castlevania.
With horrendous day to night transitions, having to throw holy water everywhere you go, and possibly the easiest boss in video game history; Simon’s Quest was the perfect place for The Nerd to start dissecting the crappiest games known to man.
Although The Nerd may have a lot to rant about when it comes to Simon’s Quest, the Castlevania series as a whole (Particularly Castlevania IV on the Super Nintendo) do hold a special place in his heart. And as a four part Halloween special in 2010, The Nerd revisits Simon’s Quest, along with numerous other titles in the series.
