At first I was turned off because it did not feel like a Castlevania game but it turns out it was not trying to be like the rest.....In that note, I would have to say it was a great experience almost felt like I was playing Metroid with its own feel to it. I could not put the game down after an hour of play you will enjoy this game if you give it a chance to show its personality ;)
Fans of the Castlevania franchise will enjoy this title. The story and gameplay are superb and I experienced no glitches. This is the best Castlevania game I have played in years and surpasses Lords of Shadow easily. For 3DS fans, this is one of the best titles I have played yet on the 3DS and I would definitely put it in my top 3 3DS games to come out yet.

what can I really say about this game other than WOW!! the 3D effect was simply jaw dropping, and the graphics would make the PS VITA blush. The story was entertaining and it made me just want to keep comming back. sadly tho, this game is a side scroller and the 3DS XL handles sides rollers about as well as a blender handles rocks, my advice, don't expect to be amazed by the graphics or frame rate when playing on one of those. I also wish I had been able to controll my character with the D-Pad, but I guess it's a small loss. All in all, buy this game, and if you are still not sure, rent it from gamefly and then buy it from their website, because they have some great deals. I hope this review helped, and P.S., I am sorry for sounding a bit prejudiced againsed the 3DS XL, because it really is a great system, it just can't do side strollers like this. Thanks for listening and have a great day.
