Castlevania Legends was the third original game boy Castlevania and is probably the best one, but that isn't really saying much when you think about how much ass the other two games suck. The game is standard gameboy castlevania stuff with lots of whipping and jumping and all the crap you've come to expect from classic castlevania.
There is a major difference in this game though, there are no sub weapons. Well, there are but you don't find them in candles and stuff like you did in basically every other game, you have to earn them Megaman style from the bosses. This sounds pretty cool but the only spell worth a shit in the whole game is the time stop, and you get that in the first fucking level.
The game also has this "burning mode" feature, where you get a massive movement speed buff and become invincible for a limited amount of time. You can only do it once per life/level but if you know your going to have trouble with a section you can just kill yourself and then burning mode through it since the game is nice enough to give you unlimited continues.
Castlevania Legends is not a bad game by any stretch, it's just a bit boring. It doesn't do anything truly offensive or bullshit in anyway and it doesn't stand out either. Probably the most forgettable game in the series, but worth a try at least once.
