A Solid Second DS Entry

Eneigdra11, Amazon
9 April 2015
  • Summary: A good second entry in the Nintendo DS Castlevania series! I've been a fan of the Castlevania series since Symphony of the Night on PS1 and I really enjoyed the GBA and DS entries of the series.

Kinda easy but fun

Thomas Seiji Pascoto Nishikawa, Amazon
7 July 2014
  • Summary: Very good game. Pro: Good story, good variety of skills and enemies interesting gameplay. Not much to say Cons: Charlotte is the buff master, i only used her for this purpose, because of her limited weapons variety and spell casting time i prefered using Jonathan.

Solid entry to a great franchise

Andrew N., Amazon
25 January 2014
  • Summary: Another strong entry to the series. I feel as though adding the second character is unnecessary as abilities could have just as easily been added to the primary character. Anime art style in portraits and cutscenes doesn't do it for me either, it's not appropriate for the setting.

2d Classic Fun

  • Summary: Got to love it. If you liked other 2d castlevanias like circle of the moon or dawn of sorrow, I think you will like this game too.

Fulfilling, good title.

charles willem, Amazon
12 April 2013
  • Summary: Portrait of ruin, surprisingly a DS title, makes little use of the touchscreen's capabilities. The story line was quite satisfying, with multiple possible, and enjoyable, endings. While it "offers multiplayer capabilities", don't count on being able to even experience it.

  • Summary: I got this game to help complete my collection for DS Castlevania games. I was very happy with the price considering some many other Castlevania games are very expensive.

Great Action Adventure

Bright, Amazon
7 February 2012
  • Summary: Overall, Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin doesn't hit the system with the same impact as Dawn of Sorrow, but it's still one of the great Castlevania experiences.

Better than Dawn of Sorrow

BX Lounger, Amazon
16 August 2011
  • Summary: Hot off the heels and success of Konami's Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow, they went back to the drawing board and developed a brand new game for the Nintendo DS. Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin was released in 2006 and made improvements in just about every area of the game.

Castlevania Portrait of Ruin

John K. Buttner Jr., Amazon
11 February 2010
  • Summary: Nice game with great depth, meaning the game plays out for awhile and is not over quickly; lots of weapons to choose from 'equippable' items; lots of things to still do after you beat the game
