A great option for those unwilling to spend tons of money on an import game. The disc and case are high quality, as is the manual. Having the game and manual in English is excellent. If you had to nitpick, the manual isn't of a glossy finish and pages weren't evenly cut. However, based on the source material as well as translation to English, this is definitely minor. Overall this is a great deal and I'm glad PJ's Games restocked it!
The translation version is good - even the title screen is reworked. The fonts are corrected, and the level intro text renders correctly with no oddities. I've seen several translation patches, and this is the most mature of the versions available.
The physical media is great quality. The printing on the disk is nice, and the CDR works great in my TG-16. My CD unit (original model TG-16 US CD-Rom) is quite picky and won't play most CDR reproduction discs, but played this (and MegaMan on SuperCD also from PJs) without any trouble. The case and manual are well done, even if you're capable of producing the patched disc on your own its worth the price to get the "complete package" - especially the artwork on the disc, very polished final product.
I didn't have a problem on delivery time.
Excellent game, perfect reproduction with beautiful disc art and at a great price! You owe it to yourself to own and play this excellent Castlevainia game so make your move and buy this game & enjoy!
