  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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: They say a picture is worth a thousand words. In Portrait of Ruin, a picture is full of a thousand demons. A thousand demons about to be cut down by whips and giant crosses, that is.
  • Pros: ups: great gameplay and content, lots of bonuses and secrets
  • Cons: downs: lack of touch screen interaction, repetition

  • Summary: Castlevania är tillbaka nu igen. Portrait of Ruin når inte upp till föregångarens nivå, men är fortfarande ett njutbart pixeläventyr.

  • 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.
