The Best GBA Castlevania to date
25 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is truly the best GBA Castlevania game ever. Better than Harmony of Dissonance and Aria of Sorrow. I found this game more challenging and a lot more fun and interesting to play with. I never got tired of it unlike the other two GBA titles which got boring after a while. The graphics are not over the top but they are still amazing and beautiful to keep you playing the game.

The monsters were challenging, the game-play was challenging (especially the use of the Hunter Whip NOT the Vampire Killer), and the Battle Arena is still the hardest Battle Arena in any Castlevania game to date. What made this game even more fun and memorable was the music.

I love the music that was place in the game. It kept me going and kept me hooked for hours. Leveling Up is the most important thing in this game and yet it is challenging to achieve high level ups as your progressing.

What made this title so memorable was the new use of a DSS system of cards (Attribute and Action cards), which when combined, made interesting new magic spells or upgrading of your Hunter Whip. The bosses were more challenging than the two other GBA title ones and the strategy behind each one made it that more memorable. The downfall is that the game has no Enemy Library to know the info of monsters and that it has no Boss Rush Mode to make things interesting. Other than that a great game to the series and up there among my favorites.

The retcon of this game got me mad but i hope things will turn around and make CoTM part of the storyline. Again a memorable game and up there along with SoTN, Dracula X Rondo of Blood and the original Castlevania for the NES.

SoTN Dracula X CoTM Castlevania 1 (NES)

All time favorites. =D
