Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin

Game Vortex
4 February 2008
  • Excerpt: Although some would argue that Castlevania III deserves the spot, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night will forever hold a place as one of the Castlevania series' best entries. Since then, Konami has stuck with the open-ended Metroid formula and been successful with it.

Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin (DS) Review

  • Summary: Like I said before, this game is a shining example of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". This is what the game is. It's Dawn of Sorrows with a few additives. It doesn’t do much to progress the evolution of the series, but it doesn’t take a step backwards by any means.

  • Excerpt: Vampires are one of the most known villains in the world of horror films. You could probably walk up to anyone on the street, ask them who Dracula is, and they could instantly tell you that he’s a vampire.

Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin

Nintendo World Report
18 December 2006
  • Summary: Konami innovates while retaining the basic feel of recent Castlevania games. Read on to learn whether the changes were wise.
  • Pros: Excellent bonus modes and longevity, Excellent controls, graphics, and music, Great bosses as usual, Innovative in a number of ways, yet still the same at heart, Wi-Fi shopping and boss rush
  • Cons: A significant number of reused enemies, Musical composition is slightly sub par for the series, Portrait levels add too much linearity, RPG elements still make the main game easy
