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.
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.
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: 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.
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.
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.
Excerpt: Age Rating: 12+ for violence. 1 Player Made by Konami PS2 Memory card required. The disappearence of his fiance takes 11th century nobleman, Leon Belmont, to a castle belonging to a vampire who has taken her.
Pros: Great voice acting, graphics and storyline .
Summary: I don't think this is a very successful update of the Castlevania games. It's beautiful to look at, nice to listen to but I just cannot get excited by it. It lacks the confidence, zest, inventiveness of a great Castlevania title of which there are many.
Summary: Its ironic that this game is called Lament of Innocence, or Crying over Innocence, when it resembles another game that involves Crying in the title so closely. I suppose that it could be used as a way of telling Castlevania fans "This still isn't the game you've been waiting for, in fact it's a rip...
