Castlevania: Curse of Darkness User Reviews

7.0

Its got the style, but not the gameplay...

The good:

Stronger/more interesting story than previous Castlevania's, decent combat, great boss battles, should keep fans of Castlevania happy

The bad:

Bland/samey level design, repetitive/flawed gameplay, easier than previous outings, quite short, no where near as good many of the Castlevania games that came before it

Summary:

I've been recently getting into the Castlevania series, trying out whatever games I could get my hands on, so I didn't hesitate in buying this one when I saw it on the shelves.

Symphony of the Night in 3d

He finds Hectors wife and convinces the towns people shes a witch and they all burn her to death. Now Hector all pissed off(hell I w...

Nice to be in Valachia

Summary:

When I heard {ok, READ, not heard) that Konami will release 2 Castlevania games, first, I think the 2D one for the DS is better (just based from the screenshots) than the 3D one for the PS2. Being a fan of the Castlevania series, I thought that Dawn of Sorrow might quench my thirst and hunger for another castlevania game as good as Symphony of the Night. However, when I played it, I was [somehow] satisfied. It was a good game. It has good graphics but I didn't totaly like the music and it doesn't feel like Symphony of the Night anymore (despite Alucard's presence here).
And then, I played th...
