      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 everyone says it is hard and yes it is, but I think it kinda gets a little ridiculous when I am at the final boss and I have to spend like an hour or two grinding to level up just to have enough power to defeat him. I know he is the final boss in the game but it just seems natural to walk into the fight and already be ready to defeat him. I ended up beating the game at level 41 and it took me a while for me to figure out how to deal the final blow to him let alone have enough health to do it. One thing that kinda bugged me was the glyphs, I didn't like how it always used my magic meter. I mean I could understand my MP going down when I use spells, but I didn't like it when I used my main weapon and l lost my MP. This is because I ran into this many times when I was attacking an enemy and had to stop because my MP was out. This might be a minor complaint but it got on my nerves a lot. Other than that beef I had with this game it really is a good game, and every Castlevania fan should this one up while they still can even though it is much more of the same thing in a different package.

          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...

      [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...
