    Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia

    Game » consists of 4 releases. Released Oct 21, 2008

    Dracula is still a threat, but the Belmonts are nowhere to be found. Several groups of people form to battle Dracula, the most successful of which is the Order of Ecclesia and its greatest champion, Shanoa.

    Okay, is anybody actually buying this?

    I know that other "must-buy" games are coming out, but, for me, this is one of them and I'm going to get a copy tomorrow. Anyone with me?

    This series is the only reason, the only reason, I own this fucking DS, and playing handhelds just isn't my thing.

    DoS was fucking superb, Potrait was weak...

    ... Can't wait to play this shit.

    This isn't the best place to get a useful answer to that question, since you can bet anyone who posts here is fan enough to be there when the stores open in--oh, just a few minutes.

    Hey Biff, why do I get the feeling Portrait of Ruin wasn't liked so much? What about it was weak? I thought it was all-around improved and better than Dawn. Markedly so. I've seen other comments about Portrait of Ruin not holding up, and that's totally surprising to hear. Then again, I can say the same about some other things, like Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, and Star Trek: Enterprise, so maybe I just have weird taste.

    I got it, its great. I like how you can attack faster with 1 Glyphe on each arm in a combo. Its definitely harder than the other two DS Castlevania games.

    Yeah, I managed to swipe the last copy at a local GameStop today (Lucky me!). The quick succession of the attacks is nice, but I didn't mind the backdash-canceling in the previous games.

    I just bought it when I picked up LBP, and I like it so far. The thought of not actually using weapons is weird, but I am over it. The combat is a lot of fun, and I enjoy the new system. Still need to get used to it being less like SOTN, however, with the overworld rather then a large castle.

    I've gotten a bit sick of Castlevania lately, so probably not.

    This is easily the best DS game. I'm currently playing through Level 1 cap Hard mode, and I love it!

    I all ready got it, its not worth the money its easy, reused monsters, items, and sprites from every other castlevania, Konami hasn't made really any thing new since SOTN nearly every thing in the game is reused from all the other GBA, DS castlevanias.

    It's easy
    If you think it's too easy, play Lv 1 cap Hard Mode.

    Reused monsters and sprites
    Don't fix what isn't broken. And if you didn't notice, this game has a lot of new enemies.

    Reused items
    I don't know what you're complaining about here. Did you want the potions to be replaced? Are you complaining about reused food? In what way exactly does this ruin the game?
