Excerpt: By the time Konami released Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin , they had just about run the 'Metroidvania' concept into the ground. Regardless, they decided to release yet another such game, and logically it should have been a complete flub.
Conclusion: The well-implemented dual character setup, semi return to the level-based progression of the classic Castlevania titles, and the return of music and sprites from 20 years of Castlevania history as well as a direct connection to a little-known post Castlevania title make Portrait of Ruin a great way...
Excerpt: I'll start this review by getting right to the point. If you have played any of Konami's GBA or DS Castlevania games, you'll be playing them again with Portrait of Ruin. That means if you haven't liked any of the previous "Metroidvania" games, no need to read further.
Excerpt: Genre: Action-RPG Publisher: Konami Developer: Konami Release Date: December 5, 2006 If you haven't heard of Castlevania: Bloodlines , don't be ashamed. Released late in the Genesis' lifecycle, it is probably the most obscure Castlevania to be released in the United States; even the Japanese-only...
Conclusion: Even so I just didn't feel the same magic, the same excitement that flowed from Sorrow. Whether you will all depends on how you approach it, and it would be rude and silly of me to declare that this has no merit simply because I fall outside the impact zone of some of its best ideas and mechanics...
Summary: Jada, jeg har påstått at Portrait of Ruin på mange måter er et bedre spill enn Dawn of Sorrow, og påstanden står enda. Det er på mange måter mye bedre. Det er større, mer variert og med enda mer utspekulerte bosser og fiender enn tidligere.
Conclusion: On ne peut plus baser un jeu sur la fidélité et c'est pourquoi l'ajout du duo est une bonne chose mais franchement pas assez radicale ou pas assez poussé pour que l'on modifie notre regard sur la série.
Pros: Le duo de héros jouables, Graphismes fins, Bonne réponse des commandes, Exploration assez longue
Cons: Ca ne surprend plus, L'ambiance maître de la saga se dissipe de plus en plus, Quelques incohérences dans la gestion du duo, Quelques bugs de traduction
