I'm not familiar with Castlevania 64, but I have a good enough understanding of Dracula and such. This map isn't bad, but it's lacking in a few areas. First of all, for a single room it's quite large and quite empty. I'm sure that was the intention, but somehow it just takes away from the map in my opinion. Also the lighting is quite poor. There are two lamps in the room, and somehow the entire room is uniformly lit. Something not right about that. I also noticed at least one place where the texturing was misaligned, and the curved areas seemed like they might have been z-fighting a bit. I seem to remember reading something about that... Eh, well, I'm not a mapping expert, so I'm not going to try to explain it :p.
The first thing I really noticed was the music. Nintendo 64 music is... well... icky. Just like any music prior to the PS2 generation consoles. Luckily there are several game music remix sites out there, my favorite being OCRemix.org. I looked and it seems they have quite a collection of Castlevania remixes. While the choice included wasn't too bad, I didn't feel that its mood really matched that of the map. We were lucky enough to get bot support, though.
One last note: while I can't prove you "borrowed" textures because you haven't so much as mentioned them in your read-me, please credit people next time. I'm only turning a blind eye to this because it looks like stuff you could easily find on google. But if you didn't make your material you need to properly credit whoever you took it from.
