Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance review (GBA)
4 December 2008
Excerpt: It seems that after Castlevania: Symphony of the Night was released seemingly to give me something to be happy about in life after graduating college, Konami got the great idea to re-release that game a few times on other systems.

Cons: Elemental Stone system for the whip is useless, Forward Dash is only useful for rushing through boring areas, Level design is not as inspired as SOTN, Music is not up to par with the series’ legacy, Pathetically easy, Sub-Items have become obsolete, The magic system is completely and totally broken
