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. After two decades they've still got it. Next time, though, we want to see what else they can do. Because if the next installment is just Portrait of Ruin with some minor fixes, then it'll be a bad thing.

Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin

Game Vortex

  • 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 is the series' second outing on the DS and, while it does come up short in a few areas and is really more of the same, it is still a fun adventure worthy of the Castlevania...

Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin Review

  • 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. Sure, some may not know all the history behind Dracula, but I’d bet everyone could tell you where he lives. Early on in the life of the NES, a game came out that captured the fans of Dracula and fighting him – Castlevania.

Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin

  • Excerpt: Meet Jonathan Morris. He’s the son of the late John Morris, vampire hunter extraordinaire and the late hero of Castlevania: Bloodlines . Unlike his badass of a father, however, Jonathan is moody, self-righteous, and occasionally tempermental. Considering the legacy of his family established from previous adventures, it’s little wonder that this would-be hero has such a massive inferiority complex.
