A very late review!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (PS) (Video Game)
All of you out there who are fans of old school gaming and 2d platformers must have owned or played this game.
I remember when I first played this in 1999 which even then was a bit too late I only managed to ever kill Richter at the end and that was it I assumed that was the game completed so I very foolishly sold it for about £20 afterwards.
I have just paid a very pricy £70 to get it back after five and a half years only to discover that is not the case and that I only completed half of it (What a mug) anyway with its haunting orchestral music and still reasonably nice graphics I played again and this time got to the reverse castle which means this game has made me realise its length complexity and the fact its a jolly fantastic slice of old school pie.
Now I know this game is rare and makes loads of money from auctions but if you like 2d games like sonic, streetfighter, mario anything then please take your time to buy and play this game.
I am never going to sell my copy ever and think this is certainly without doubt the best in the castlevania series.
The gameboy advance incarnations and good though and the Dawn of sorrow looks fantastic as well so alls well for 2d platfomrers yet!!

Oh yes. This is the defenitive version of Castlevania. I did like Super Castlevania IV for the Super Nintendo as well. But this is a solid gem. Nice to hear you enjoyed the game. Will buy the new xbox Castlevania (shadows something) and hope it has just 10% of what this game had. Thank you for a good review.

I have the official PS1 game as well, with an added artwork leaflet included too. I also wouldn't part with this classic game either!! If anyone has saved up enough money to buy this game, I would highly recommend it!!!
I haven't completed the PS1 version, but I have completed it fully as the added Bonus feature game on the PSP game Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles.
I have a number of other classic rare games as well, such as the Legend of Dragoon which has 4 game discs!!
As I am an avid Castlevania fan, I also have Super Castlevania for the SNES console, as well as the two Castlevania games for the N64. I've spent many an hour playing these great games.
Long may the Castlevania series go on.....
