When you hear that Castlevania is 2D, your first reaction might be to think of it as a relic of another age. It seems like only 3D is good enough in this day and age.
This game is utterly addictive. In fact, i have to say that in all truth it's the ONLY game for the DS that i can say that about.
Apart from Age of Kings, i suppose, but then that was marred by bugs. Castlevania runs as smooth as honey.
The game is open, i.e. lets you take your own path, yet focused at the same time, so you don't end up feeling lost or bored. The various baddies are well thought out and i love the way you get tantalising glimpses of places you can't access yet but will reach later in the game. The pace is fast, but only as fast as you want it to be. There are lots of combinations of powers, weapons and armours to explore - in fact, there's lots to explore full stop.
Buy it and enjoy.
