Castlevania - Aria of Sorrow Featured Review

Castlevania - Aria of Sorrow Review by: Marcmoney - 9/10

Castlevania Review
Overall - 9

Castlevania - Aria of Sorrow is a good GBA game to play, I really enjoyed playing it, except that there were a few seconds freezing, which got me killed in the first boss level.  I do not know if it was my computer or not so I just wanted to say that out.  This Castlevania game is very different from what people would play on the NES and Genesis consoles.  There are different characters and a different story, but the story is sort of related so give that one a chance.  I personally think that this game is a mix of Castlevania and Fire Emblem because it is not like the other games that were on the NES and Genesis.  This one is a whole new level of Castlevania.

Graphics - 10

The graphics are perfect.  Pretty good levels and cool characters.  The enemies were very similar like bats and skeletons.  There were no screw ups in this game and the battle style graphics look very impressive.

Sound - 10

The sound is awesome and great melodies for the castle.  Similar songs from the other Castlevania games and good sound effects from the characters and from the enemies.

Addictiveness - 8

This game is one of the games I would definitely play again.  It is just like Final Fantasy and Fire Emblem. :D  I am a big fan of Fire Emblem so that is why I like playing this.

Story - 8

The story is wonderful.  It is very adventurous and interesting.  I actually read what they talk about.  I usually never read what they talk about because it really bored me, but this story was very interesting.  I wonder what it is in the end.

Depth - 8

This Castlevania game is again just like Final Fantasy and Fire Emblem.  It has equipping items and stats changing.  you can also level up (I am pretty sure) and you can find items in the game that you can equip.  You do not go places to buy items and equip them, they are just scattered in the levels, which is pretty different, but difficult if you want to find an awesome weapon.

Difficulty - 6

The game is quite hard if it weren't for the freezing (again, I do not know if it was my computer or not).  Other than that, the game is fun.  Some enemies can be difficult, but they seem to not take away lots of health from you, which is cool cause I really like having a lot of health.  The only thing difficult is being able to understand the stats and the leveling up.  It takes time to do what you want to do like equipping and when the next level up will be, but that is just how it is in Final Fantasy and Fire Emblem, right? :P

Wrap Things Up...

Castlevania - Aria of Sorrow is a good game to play.  I recommend trying this game out for all you Castlevania fans.  It is a whole lot better and the fighting style is well-prepared. :)

Castlevania - Aria of Sorrow Game Description

Normally a solar eclipse isn't a dangerous event, but for Soma Cruz being sucked through a portal and into Dracula's castle during one will turn his day into a total nightmare. As Soma you must venture through the castle and find a way out. As you do so, you will discover the true meaning behind the event, and why Dracula has risen yet again.Although set in the future, all of the weapons and hazards are the same or similar to those seen in past Castlevania titles. Soma can find or buy weapons of all types such as swords, spears, and axes. Through his mysterious power of Dominance Soma can take the souls of his enemies and use their powers as his own, providing passive stat boosts, powerful magic, or even summoning them forth to fight on his behalf. Dracula's castle is a single continuous building, and as Soma's power of Dominance grows and he acquires more monster souls to power abilities he can bypass obstacles that were previously insurmountable. Players can link up with a friend's copy of Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow to trade souls between them.

endings 03-17-15 - 01:13 AM
 I love SoTN, but I just could not get into this game. The soul part seems interesting, but also kind of tedious.
Vanelan 01-19-15 - 09:18 PM
 Better than SoTN, IMO
sebastian rose 11-26-14 - 03:01 AM

 Right up there with Symphony of the Night if youre into their "Metroidvania" style of play..I yearn for Super Castlevania V , Please Konami do this!

yankinapple 04-25-13 - 06:47 PM
 One of the best Castlevania's I've played. So this is basically my favorite because of the whole soul stealing part in it. Without the RPG element I wouldn't even play Castlevania.
helperchamp 12-04-12 - 08:51 PM
 does anyone know how i can use their save data?Comment
yankinapple 11-21-12 - 04:51 AM
 This, is one of the best Castlevania games I have ever played because of the RPG elements and how fun it is. Plus it isn't that hard when you get used to the controls.
angryrpgnerd 10-27-12 - 10:10 AM
 its okay but order of escila and dawn of sorrow way better but best metriodvania is symphony of the night by far
