    This game is a great game for the gameboy advance!!!

    I played this game and I was really impresed by this game. Gameplay: You play as a man half a human half a vampire and you are trying to save the world from villians. The storyline is very big, the enemies aren't that... Read Full Review

    Definitely my favourite Castlevania on GBA.

    It was my first "Castlevania" I ever played. Well, except some genesis version that I played only 30 minutes and gave up. And even if it's not the best game from series (because "Symphony of the Night&quot... Read Full Review

    Are you excited to see me or is that just a whip.

    I have always heard good things about Castlevania games but never bothered with them until I decided to give this a try and boy was it good! It's a platform 2D game that can go on forever, you can keep adding experience,... Read Full Review

    An excellent start off for its first GBA game.

    This was the first Castlevania game I have ever played that sparked my interest in the series. And it won't be my last. The gameplay was good albeit hard. To level the playing field, it has an RPG element for a platfo... Read Full Review

    One part twitch gaming, one part RPG...

    And one part arse-whooping, old-school glory. Castlevania: Circle of the Moon will appeal best to fans of classic 2-D platforming adventure, in the vein of Super Metroid. The castle to explore is vast in size, with secre... Read Full Review

    Not only is it the best Castlevania portable, but it's easily one of the best games in the series.

    When I heard Konami would bring Castlevania back to the Gameboy I was a little skeptical. I had reason to be in doubt considering the last three Gameboy titles were mediocre at best. I kept my hopes up though. Symphon... Read Full Review

    An awesome effort by Konami.

    How do you spend a good time with your GBA? By picking up Konami's "Castlevania: Circle of the Moon". This is by far the best GBA game you can buy and with good reason. The launch title for the GBA is ranked among one of... Read Full Review

    The highlight of the castlevania series, and the best game on the GBA

    The guy at gamespot who gave this a 9.6 is a total, total moron. I would be surprised if that idiotic buffoon even played through the whole game, and if they did, they were probably playing it wrong. Why is this critic ... Read Full Review

    Incredible

    I honestly thought I wouldn't like this game, but instead it's the one game I look forward to picking up the most. Good, solid fun. I mean, I've tried playing the original Castlevania, and I usually give up around the ... Read Full Review
