5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent game., 12 Mar. 2006
This review is from: Castlevania - Dawn of Sorrow (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
Without reffering to previous Castlevanias or comparing it to Symphony of the Night which too many people do, this game is excellence.
Its worth buying a DS for this game, its what I did; but unfortunately had to wait for a few months until it was in stock again (thank god it came back in stock)
Basically its really addictive, killing enemies with different weapons and abilities or just your own fists is extremely satisfying, complimented by the wonderful animations and sounds of the monsters. (I particularly like the boss Paranoia, who sounds like a madman from a death metal band.)The bosses are so fantastic its not annoying to have your arse kicked by them, well not the first time.
If you find bosses too hard you can easily just kill monsters to gain more power then try again, (which is very useful to those who have never played castlevania.)
Ah yes, if you have never played a Castlevania game before this is a great place to start. You don't 'need' to buy the previous game, "Aria of Sorrow", to know whats going on. All the info you need is explained in the game.
While its quite short and can be completed in a couple of days solid play (first time through, guideless, clueless) theres plenty of replayability, and is one of those rare games I actually replay to the end. If you like Metroid, buy this. If you dont play games like this buy it! This game would have made a much bigger impression on me if I was younger and less experienced in games, although thats not to say it didnt stun me. The first time I walked into the castle was when Castlevania grabbed hold of me.
Unfortunately this game left me wondering why all other games aren't this good. I didnt want it to end.
