This is the third in the DS Castlevania series and personally I think it's the best offering so far, arguably out-doing the Saturn/PSone classic Symphony of the Night.

Castlevania games often stick to a very similar formula of exploration, combat and levelling up, and this one is no different. There are a few tweaks to the combat formula that provide a satisfying level of variety to the experience. Enemies now have clear strengths and weaknesses to certain weapons meaning that equipment changes are necessary and frequent. However rather than having to wade into the main menu each time you fight a new enemy it is quick and easy to change what weaponry you are using and you can set up three preset configurations to switch between. This requires more dexterity from the player but also keeps the gaming experience fresh and entertaining, without interruption to the flow.

The approach to Ecclesia is quite different from previous instalments from an adventuring perspective. Instead of just having one castle to wander through you're taken through several varied and more compact locations before taking on the lair of Dracula himself. Dracula's castle is smaller in comparison to previous games but it is still sizeable indeed and it will take a significant portion of gaming time to get there in the first place. There is also a village that you can visit to complete various side-quests, buy items etc... It's all very RPG-lite but is a welcome touch all the same, providing a sweet respite from the exploring and combat along with added longevity.

Ecclesia is definitely the most graphically impressive of the DS series and the changes in location give the developer plenty of scope for providing varied artistic styles and settings throughout the adventure.

This game is the 3rd game in the DS trilogy and a case of being best for last (in my case it was).
The story follows Shanoa, a young ward of the order of Ecclesia (a secret-ish society) who gains and loses Dracula's power and then sets out to regain it. I'm not good at summing up plots, the gameplay I can say I can tell you is top-notch. It follows all the other DS Castlevania games in terms of gameplay, the only thing separating this game from the other two is that its much more difficult. Health items are harder to come across, as is gold for buying more items. Boss battles are that lot harder, and are more about learning attack patterns and what best way to deal with them. You'll find yourself going though the same areas just to gain enough exp. points to level up your stats. You could say it was a grinding experience lol. What brought me into this game was that difficulty factor. You just find yourself wanting to come back and complete the hard parts.
As is the case with Castlevania games, if you don't check every nook and cranny for secrets, you'll find yourself missing out on a lot. And a side-quest involving finding villagers once completed after completing the first part of the game will lead the way to Dracula's castle.
Who would I recommend this game to? Castlevania fans who've played the DS series and found them easy but want a challenge with this one. Its not for newbies to a point, anyone wanting to get into the Castlevania series could do no wrong in starting with Dawn of Sorrow (its more accessible) and then taking the plunge from there.

This game is fantastic because it does exactly what you want, and exactly what you expect, really really well. It's obvious to most people looking at this page that the game is a 2D platforming action game, with some level of exploration involved. That's ALL it is, but it's a brilliant example of that kind of game.

One aspect you might expect to be more significant in the game is the exploration. While it seems to present itself as a Metroid-style maze with various directions to explore at any given time, you realise fairly quickly that this really isn't the focus. Most of the time, you know which direction you should be going, and there'll generally be only one direction to choose from anyway - forwards. The challenge is not finding your way, but clearing out the bad guys in your path. A huge number of areas are literally just long, flat corridors, with no platforms or interesting obstacles, just a bunch of enemies. Personally I would have liked to see a bit more in the way of map design, maybe like the original Castlevania, which forced you to be strategic about how you approached the enemies and the area around you.

That's probably the only negative point for me. And this one negative aspect is diluted by this major plus point; the combat feels incredibly satisfying. The tedious map design would be a disastrous flaw if the combat were anything but outstanding, but fortunately, this aspect of the game is just that; outstanding. It simply feels good to destroy enemies in this game. The graphics, sound, animation, and control come together to give you a solid, rewarding battle mechanic. Tough enemies and bosses will not go down easily, so you have to be very careful about how you approach them. I should warn you, this is not an easy game.
