Summary: I bought this game because I love Castlevania. I find the card system irritating. But at least it is different I guess. I don't think the music is as good in this one as say Harmony of Dissonance. But I am happy with it and it is fun.
Awesome product! Will make your castlevania game collection 20% cooler

Summary: This game is one of my favorite castlevanias. I bought it since I don't have a physical copy of it anymore and I wished to get a copy. I liked the gameplay but it gets a bit hard later on. It stands out on its own even though its kind of a side story in the castlevania timeline.
Summary: I love it, one of the best games, thanks guys! really thanks Circle of the Moon was positively received, selling a total of one million copies in the month following its North American and European release, 500,000 of which in Japan. It was rated the 108th best game made on a Nintendo System in Nintendo Power's Top 200 Games list. On the review aggregate site Metacritic, it is the twelfth-highest rated Game Boy Advance title.
Summary: its not SOTN but for a gameboy game adapted from a series on other consuls its pretty fun. u use cards as magic not like yu gi oh u jsut go into a menu and equip cards to cast spells like u would your gears.
I would pay ten dollars again for this game on ebay it is very good !!!!

Summary: I bought this game thinking it wasn't going to as good as previos castlsevania games but to my surprise it is outstanding and challeging to the common gamer . I would like to see more games like this one for the vintage gamers of the 80 and 90 snes and genesis years. This game ranks a 5 star in my book . if you like simons quest this is ten times better.
Summary: After playing the other 2 games for the GBA trilogy, I felt that playing the first would be fitting to try since Aria of Sorrow and Harmony of Dissonance were really fun portable experiences. It is a decently long game, taking me about 10 hours to reach the final boss. The map uses much darker texture and colors and to me has more of a castle look and feel to it. Enemies in the game look more intimidating and realistic to me than some of the bright cartoony ones in HOD.
Excerpt: Castlevania: Circle of the Moon represents a very unusual phenomenon. While hardly a typical RPG, it can nevertheless be classified as one; and it was a launch title for the Game Boy Advance! The general rule regarding system launches is that any RPGs extant at that time will be forgotten (at best) once the system reaches maturity. Circle of the Moon represents a notable exception to this rule, however, and must be lauded for it.
