Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia - Konami - DS
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 November 2008, 7:03 pm
I have not played any of the other DS CV's but I have played the GBA ones and this is a significant step up. Rather than using the one giant castle design yet again this game provides distinct levels, allowing for a lot of variety and outdoor areas. It still maintains some feel of exploration but in bite-sized chunks. More action and less backtracking.

I really enjoy the different weapons in this game and the way that you obtain new weapons by absorbing glyphs. Different enemies require different weapons but because you can rotate between three active sets there isn't a lot of futzing around in menus. For the most part the proper set of 3 weapons is more than enough for a given level.

If you like 2D action/adventure games this is an absolute no brainer. One of the most fun games I've played this year.

Verdict: Buy it.
