Amazon.co.uk Review

No matter how long-running they may, be there are some game series that will never become household names, unless that household happens to contain a number of very dedicated video games fans. The Castlelvania series of 2D platform adventures is one of the most beloved of all niche franchises but this second outing on the DS is, by the game’s normally conservative standards, quite a departure from the norm. It’s set during World War II and you control not one vampire hunter but two. The first is the traditional whip wielding, animal impersonating, Jonathan Morris and the other is a young witch called Charlotte Aulin. You can switch between characters at any time or call on their help solving puzzles or engaging in a simultaneous attack.

Sensibly the game ditches the intrusive use of the touch screen seen in Dawn of Sorrow, instead choosing to focus on making the two characters as different as possible with Johnny concentrating on traditional Castlevania melee weapons and Charlotte learning a range of different offensive and defensive magic. As usual in a Castlevania game both characters gain experience as they defeat enemies, slowly increasing your stats like a role-playing game. The 2D graphics are as exquisitely detailed as ever but the level design is perhaps a little more pedestrian than normal. Thankfully the bizarre range of enemies makes up for this to a degree, with some particularly ingenious bosses. The only real disappointment is that the much vaunted co-op mode is only for a few special levels and not the whole game. Even so, it’s still an improvement on the last game and the best new Castlevania since Symphony of the Night on the PSOne.
