It's official. After plenty of time with Portrait of Ruin, it's now my fav Castlevania game. Yes, I'm saying that PoR actually edges out Symphony of the Night (PS1). It builds on SotN's formula immensely! I never would've thought SotN could be beat but, prior to SotN, I didn't think Bloodlines (Sega Genesis) could be beat either.
Just picked up a used copy of this game and now I own all the castlevania games on the ds. The whole series is awesome and so is this game. I wouldn't say its the best castlevania game on the DS but it sure is loads of fun.
1000% completion is clearly a gimick. Its just stupid even mentioning it. Now, if it had an over 9000% completion it would be a gameplay feature.
portrait of ruin is good if you dont like it then your aint a castlevania fan, i love it you get to fight a belmont :D
guess nobody was that interested in this game. i just recently caught on to the castlevania series. im playin SOTN right now and i must admit i am enjoying it very much so. i wish i didnt sell my DS seeing how they made some pretty good castlevania games on it
