The graphics in this game are great,but not excellent.They're pretty much what the GBA could handle.The 3D backgrounds didn't look very nice though,as they tend to look blocky and unpolished.Still,the opening movie at the titlescreen looked pretty neat(The opening movie in this game is cel shaded,not like Dawn of Sorrow's animated one).Also,the anime style that was readopted in Dos has returned.Yay!
There's quite a number of nice tracks here.........Umm..That's it I guess
The soundeffects in this game are basic Castlevania sounds,the whipping,the slashing,and whatnot.As for voiceacting there is some here,though not for the cutscene dialogues.Some monsters have pretty amusing lines and the greedy money-loving priest has about 4 voice-acted lines too!If you get sick of the English voices you can always change it to Japanese
The most important thing needed for a game!And fortunately it's the best thing this game offers!It's all the Castlevania-packed goodness you've come to expect from a Castlevania game(the 2D ones at least)!!
It's fun,it's action packed and it keeps you coming back for more......
Okay time for the flaws.This game has a new thing called a partner.It's not a bad concept really,it's quite useful BUT the little problem here is the partner's AI.Your partner usually helps to fight but they can ocassionally behave stupid.In certain parts of the game you fight a couple of bosses that can chain or trap your character,prompting the other one to come out to help you escape before the instant kill move......The AI can be really unreliable in things like this.OOOH!Also,there are a couple of glitched in certain versions of the game,but they're not too crippling(except for the one that can screw your savefile.wait,that's crippling!Don't worry too much though you probably won't get in that mess if you don't skip dialogues)
Story mode will keep you entertained for around 10 hours,and there are quests to keep you going too.After you win the game you'll unlock some special content like harder dificulties and new characters.There's also multiplayer but it's not really fulfilling
It's a great game!Minor flaws but still a great game!If you like action games GET THIS NOW.
