First off, this is the first Castlvania games I've ever played, and now I'm renting every one of them.
Aria of Sorrow:
Graphics 5/10 But, hey, its a GBA game, what do you expect
Sound 10/10 Awesome music, and sound effects. Not much more to say.
Gameplay 10/10 This is where this game wins. When you kill enemies, you can obtain their souls. With each soul, you get a special power (like throwing grenades, spears, or even turning into a bat!). And not to mention the weapons are loads of fun, ranging from hand guns, to holy spears.
Replay Value 10/10 Even when you get 100%, this game is well worth playing again, and again...
Overall 10/10 Great game. One of the best on the GBA, by far.
Harmony of Dissonance:
Sound & Graphics - see above.
Gameplay 10/10 This is classic Castlevania at it's best. You play a Vampire Slayer, and your weapon is the Whip. This game is a lot of fun, and has lots of killing monsters involved. However, no souls...
Replay 9/10 This game is never the same every time you play through it. There are always 5 or so different paths you can take first, and each has its fair share of challenges.
OVERALL 10/10 This game is VERY good, and you should invest on buying it.
