  • Excerpt: All eras must come to an end, even in gaming. Canons eventually become played out, concepts overstay their welcome, companies lose their edge, and franchises dry up. When eras fizzle out, the best we can hope for is a proper sendoff and not a rushed, forgettable product as a means to say goodbye. ...which brings me to the "Metroidvania" era. The concept had run its course sometime last decade. I knew it was bound to happen, and I accepted it.

Search your feelings; you know this game is bad.

  • Conclusion: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 for DS is a huge step backwards for the franchise. Not only is the handheld version inferior to its predecessor in terms of story, but it also has comparatively awful controls and boring combat. While I felt the DS version was the best of the original Force Unleashed games, it’s the complete opposite this time around. TFU2 should be Force thrown right into the bargain bins.

Impression: Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia

  • Excerpt: With only tidbits of information scurrying around the Internet. Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia was among the top titles I've been waiting to get my hands on this year. After the crowds died down a bit, I made my way over to Konami's couches to sit down and see how one of the most anticipated action RPGs of the year was shaping up just weeks before release.

  • Conclusion: Where things really get interesting, though, is in Ecclesia’s overall design. It’s as if IGA went into his lab and mixed 1 part Symphony of the Night, 1 part Simon’s Quest, a half a beaker of Bloodlines, and then polished it off with a pinch of Shaman King: Master of Spirits. One thing it’s not is Metroid.

Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia

Gaming Evolution
5 May 2009
  • Conclusion: Ecclesia is simultaneously a departure from past installments and a return to form. By bridging the gap between the classic, linear, action-heavy Castlevania games and the new school of RPG-influenced, exploration heavy entries, Order of Ecclesia stands as a prototype for a whole new approach to the series.

  • Excerpt: Admission: Order of Ecclesia is my first experience with a Castlevania game. That may cause some readers to grow pale and quickly denounce a review from a gamer that has never played a Castlevania game, yet calls himself a video game journalist. Stop reading if you will, but know that you will miss the unique perspective of one who has never before stepped into the shadow of Castlevania until now.

Take a bite out of this challenging vampire game.

Common Sense Media

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this is a game in which you hunt vampires. It is rather dark because your character battles monsters and spirits constantly during which blood spurts occasionally. The story includes draining the blood of humans. There is a lot of reading involved, most of which is dialog between the main character and the characters she meets.
