Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia - Review 2

    Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia is the seventh, 2D action-rpg installment of this long running series.  Borrowing elements from both the tradional, action-oriented titles, as well as the rpgs, Ecclesia brings a much needed breath of fresh air to the series after the grindy and uninspired Dawn of Sorrow and Portrait of Ruin.      To kick off this review, I would like to bring up the reasons why I actually bought this game.  I have been playing Castlevania since the NES, and I am one it's endur...

Reviewing [Castlevania : Order of Ecclesia] 1

[Castlevania : Order of Ecclesia] : The latest attempt at a modern day Symphony. Story : [Castlevania : Order of Ecclesia] is based around a young woman named [Shanoa] who was chosen to bear some kind of almighty power capable of bringing down [Dracula], only for fellow cult-mate [Albus] to steal the power for himself, forcing [Shanoa] to go after him. There’s a good twist or two here and there but the overall story in [Castlevania : Order of Ecclesia] is by and large predictable. You know you’r...

Better than Portrait of Ruin 0

Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia is the third and final installment in the Castlevania series on the Nintendo DS, following Dawn of Sorrow (2005) and Portrait of Ruin (2006). This time the secretive Order of Ecclesia, unconnected to the Belmont clan, is attempting to prevent Dracula’s centennial resurrection by collecting the fragments of his scattered soul. These glyphs can only be controlled by Shanoa, a raven haired beauty who has sacrificed her memory to serve as an empty vessel for their powe...

Revived once more 2

Castlevania is one of gaming's longest running franchises, and somehow manages to continually pump out new titles every year or two. Order of Ecclesia is the latest entry, and brings back much of the same style of action and adventure that we've come to expect from the series. It's a fun title for sure, but the series' extreme aversion to innovation is catching up with it, making Order of Ecclesia feel all too predictable.That's not to say that Order of Ecclesia is a direct carbon copy of the pr...

It was a good game just hard, but not as memorable as the first t 0

  I guess I'll start this review off by saying, I have only been playing the Castlevania series since about the first GBA game. I have played games in the past but never beat them up until then, I never played SotN and I know it is the best but I started when Circle of the Moon came out so I'll mainly go from the perceptive and on. This game is good for a Castlevania game but it just didn't leave the same stamp of awesome as the other two games but not nearly as good as Dawn of Sorrow. I know ev...

This game won't suck your blood, but it will suck your patience. 0

As a fan of the Castlevania series, I’ve been waiting for a game worthy enough to oust 1997’s Symphony of the Night as the best game in the series. I initially thought Order of Ecclesia, the latest Castlevania game for Nintendo DS, would finally break the 11 year wait. But thanks to some of the game’s more demanding factors, it seems that my wait will continue. I certainly believe this is the best original DS game to come out in months; unfortunately, the game gradually went downhill from beginn...

A worthy closure for the trilogy. 0

 The trilogy has reached an end, three successful titles for the DS, each with its own soul. Dawn of Sorrow stands as the closest to the roots of Castlevania series, the darkest Castlevania and the title that opened the way and set the standards for the next two. Portrait of Ruin, one more step into innovation, two characters at the same time on screen, a slightly better story, non-castle locations, challenge system, and even more unlockables. And now we have Order of Ecclesia, which also has a ...
