A Prelude to Dawn

Jeremy Michael Gallen, RPGamer
1 March 2010
  • Excerpt: The year is 2035 in Japan, and crowds are anticipating the first solar eclipse of the century. An exchange student named Soma Cruz and his friend Mina Hakuba visit the Hakuba Shrine to witness the eclipse, although the stairs leading there seem longer than usual, and both friends are mysteriously whisked away to Dracula's castle.

  • Summary: while this game isin't a great game, its worth at least borrowing from a friend for a while. you are soma cruz, a college student who gets sucked into draculas castle. sound familiar? well, it should. there is a huge graphical inprovement, a lot better than harmony of dissonance. the way the game uses its colors, i think is brilliant. but, circle of the moon is a better game.

Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow - No More Whippin' It Out For The Belmonts! (W/O)

  • Summary: If a Belmont falls in a castle and there's no one to hear his screaming death rattle, does he make a sound?
  • Pros: Very well put together game, graphics, control, easy to pick up and play.
  • Cons: Nothing special about the sound, story is a bit flat, ending is weak too.

I like my Castlevania with a side-order of delicious souls.

  • Summary: I recommend it to be bought used or that you should wait until it's under 23 dollars. It's really great, but it's far too short to be worth 30 dollars.
  • Pros: Extremely addicting and fun gameplay, great graphics, and top-tier GBA music
  • Cons: Too short!

Cute touches a-go-go.

Alexander Whiteside, amazon.co.uk
20 July 2003
  • Summary: Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow has, at its heart, the same basic structure as its predecessors. Travel through the castle; find a boss; kill it and get a new ability. But Aria ladles on neat touches to lift it above its peers... ...but the basics first. Combat is swift, with responsive controls for the agile protagonist. It's not too far behind Metroid Fusion, in fact. Jumping, hacking, and stabbing your way through the platforms of the castle is sleek and satisfying.
