Summary: Graphics:4 stars Storyline: 2 stars Gameplay: 2 stars Soundtrack: 5 stars Replay value: 3 stars Overall: 3 stars It is hard to actually know where to start on this game. While my review won't be long, it will be direct and honest.
Decent ,but cannot compare to Symphony of the night

Summary: I have been really looking forward to this game for a long time. Honestly I am a bit let down. Symphony of the night was without a doubt the BEST Castlevania game ever, this game was made by te same people that made SOTN, but yet it isn't even close.
Summary: This game is definitely an enjoyable entry to the Castlevania series. It's got top notch graphics, awesome action platforming gameplay, and some really cool boss fights. The main problem: this doesn't FEEL like a Castlevania game. Sorry, but every place you go in this game looks the same.
Summary: I'm a big castlevania fan who's been playing them since the first one on the old Nintendo system. And perhaps it's that dedication to the series, that I hold these games up to some slightly higher expectations than I would other games. First, off, let's start with the good things about this game.
Summary: Ok, first off ive been a fan of the castlevania series since the original NES days.. and i have to say this title in the series really isnt the best but then againit isnt the worst and ill tell you why... first off the controls are shoddy..
Summary: Brought back some memories. Runs on the same type game engine as Rygar on the PS2. All in all it still holds a play factor. If it had more options to customize with gear and weapons would have much more play and replay factor.
Excellent gameplay, but severely lacking elsewhere

Summary: In terms of gameplay, this is a must-have. The combination of a wide variety of combat moves and enemies, excellent boss design, a killer musical score and (of course) the castlevania name make this well worthwhile. However, don't buy it for the story.
Summary: The title of my review basically said it all. No complex controls, no spectacular controls and or odd camera angles. This is your basic hack and slash run through game. Even though it's not all bad it's not all great.
Summary: I LOVED Symphony Of The Night and Castlevania 64 and am currently enjoying Aria Of Sorrow, but this just isn't Castlevania to me. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a die hard old school fan who hates 3D games, I LOVED Castlevania 64.
Summary: It starts of pretty cool...the combos are a nice touch, but I swear it gets old very fast. I got to the last boss and did not even care to finish the game, I was bored by then...turned it off and walked away.
