In the future, there are no robots, good
19 January 2005 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

Another cool and successful title of the series on the GBA. This time it is set in the 2035, you play as a foreign student, Soma Cruz, studying in Japan, and all of a sudden during the first eclipse of the year, Dracula's castle arises, in Japan? How, isn't it supposed to be in East Europe? And all of a sudden, monsters appear and attack you. And a strange person who looks familiar, helps you out. And Soma starts to think there is a connection between him and the castle, and what will he find there? Overall, a very great game, and it has all the cool stuff and action from all the other games in the tradition of Symphony of the Night, and you also play as another character who is a Belmon, but has very cool moves and weapons, and power but at the same time, he looks like a woman. Not again. And you can level him up, and this time, you get weapons from other enemies. And the swords and magic are awesome. Recommended for fans of the series, those who have GBA, of course, and for those who find the 3D ones lousy.
