Nonsense, don't let the nostalgia get the best of you. I played Symphony of the Night after playing Dawn of Sorrow, and while SotN had a superior presentation (apart from the godawful voiceovers), the boss monsters were hideously unbalanced (most of them could be killed in seconds by just whacking away at them without even bothering to dodge their attacks for the most part) and the save points are horribly placed (reaching the boss in the top of the castle requires about 10-15 minutes of difficult playtime from the nearest save point). It's still a great game, but it's definitely not the best Castlevania game, perhaps not even the second best.

DoS was over too damned quick. The only CS game I haven't played was the newest DS one (portait of ruin) and IIRC, SOTN is one of the longest games with far more play time and stuff to explore. Plus, UPSIDEDOWN CASTLE FTW. biggrin


... now, did they give us the MP3 that was on the original PS1 disk when you put it into a CD player? slywink

While I personally felt that SoTN is the best Castlevania game (though I haven't played it since it was first released), I'm not sure if Gamerankings is the way to prove it. As far as I can remember, SoTN was the first Metriod-type game since, well, Super Metroid and a lot of its praise was due to that fact.

While that list is nice, I'd rank Castlevania 3 on the NES way up there. It's the best (IMO) of the classic Castlevanias. icon_biggrin

I would just be wary of using Game Rankings for PS1-era games.  The sample size for SotN is much lower than the more recent Castlevania games.

I don't need GR to tell you that SoTN back then was a 95% AAA+ title. Tongue I figure those numbers pretty damned conservative. slywink The fact that there ARE 28 registered reviews means that we aren't talking a tiny sample size.

If it makes it to 85% on the XBLA version, that sure says something about the game, being that it's almost 10 years old.

There were 3 80%, 9 90% and 5 100% in their reviews for the PS1 version. Not too damned shabby. Tongue

I strongly believe a lot of those reviews are based on how people remember the game, not how they would rate it if they played it again today. The things I mentioned in the post above are really bad for the game, especially the poor game balance and bad save point placement. It's obvious from recent Castlevania games on the DS that they've learned a lot since then.

I have to agree with Tilt on this that it's primarily nostalgia tinging reviews for older titles. Hell, I've fallen victim to that myself regarding FFVI on the DS. I still love it, but I'm more experienced now when I play it and as such I've blown through it. I'm sure when I replay SotN I'll find things to bitch about and wonder aloud how I ever enjoyed X. I would actually put Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest ahead of it, more for personal reasons than anything else, followed quickly by Castlevania 3.

Speaking of which, isn't it high time that a Castlevania game featured Simon Belmont or a Belmont again? icon_wink

Have you replayed Castlevania 2 or 3 recently? If not, how do you know that you aren't aggrandazing those games based on nostalgia? I used to love Castlevania 2 as a kid (though I got stuck at the heart part, I believe); but I went back and played it a month or two ago and it was no where near what I remembered.

Castlevania 2 was one of the great gaming experiences on the NES for me.  I went back and tried to replay it again a few years back and quickly stopped before that treasured memory was marred.  Hasn't really held up nearly as well as I thought. 

CV3 holds up better for no other reason than it wasn't nearly as ambitious as Simon's Quest.  But with Super Castlevania IV out there, there really isn't much reason to play Part 3.

Didn't they say they were 'reworking' the game so people with widescreen could have the entire playfield on the screen without stretching the image?

I think they're doing that on PSP but I don't recall hearing that about the XBLA version.

I actually never enjoyed Super Castlevania IV as much as Castlevania III. I don't know why; something about III just made it a superb old-style Castlevania. icon_biggrin

As for nostalgia influencing the score for SotN, I never played SotN until two years after I picked up a PS2, so it was quite old already by then, and I loved the heck out of it. It's my favorite Castlevania game. I don't think nostalgia is what made that game great. icon_wink

I bought CV2 back in the day; I got stuck right in the beginning, and couldn't figure out what the hell to do.  Had I rented it, I would have never gone back, but I guess luckily since I owned it, I went back and tried again every so often.  Eventually I figured out what to do (may have seen it in a magazine or something) and got to play the rest of the game.

Yes it was. I haven't played those games in years but I look back fondly on them. Were I to play them again now, said memory would be tarnished. I prefer the happy memory. icon_wink

Yes. Yes, it is the worst voice acting of all time.

But the game's awesomeness is just that awesome that you forget about the voice acting soon enough!

And this is why I am passing on the XBL version, and getting it on the PSP along with the original Rondo of Blood (which is actually the best Castlevania ever made) along with the Rondo of Blood Update/Remake.

So I played about every iteration of Castlevania on the NES/SNES/DS/etc, but missed SOTN due to never owning a PS1.  As a virgin SOTN virgin will I still like it, or does it not hold up well to the DS titles?

Its good ol PS1 Castlevania: SOTN with some weird little changes.

A) The Nova Skeletons no longer give bonkers XP to level like mad.

B) There are more mobs in the Inverted Castle, I assume to increase difficulty

C) Resistances are more important now, especially in Inverted.

D) They didn't fix the 100 Blades Sword...its still a game breaker frown

Other than that, its the classic game. Doesn't look as great as I hoped, but since Ive beaten the game more times than I can count, I was able to fly through it today and am happy to report its a wonderful port. Hope people who missed it the first time are able to enjoy it!

I think we're arguing amongst masterpieces here. I don't have a 360, but I've recently thought about trying to track down a copy of SoTN to play on my PS2. I have no doubt it would be worth the effort and I think anyone with a 360 is going to be glad to get this game.

I'll just throw in my own 2 cents in here and say that Circle of the Moon and Aria of Sorrow running on my GameBoy player and being displayed on my Sony HDTV are true works of art. 2 of the best Castlevania games ever IMHO.

The Legacy of Darkness game on that list makes me snicker, it was definitely a bit of a stinker.  Roll Eyes

I downloaded this last night sight-unseen based on the positive buzz floating around the forums, and even though the graphics are dated and the voice acting is some of the worst I've ever heard in a game, I'm definitely enjoying it.  I miss the classic 2D side-scrollers of old such as Metroid, Mega Man, Altered Beast, Fantasy Zone, etc, (I tried to get into Alien Hominid because of its style and side-scrolling action, but it is way too difficult for me to enjoy) and I always liked the Castlevania series from my first experience with it on the original NES, so this is definitely a much-appreciated addition to the Live Arcade library.  I only played for a few minutes, but this looks like it will easily be worth the $10 price tag, and I forsee myself replaying the game a number of times if only to work on the various achievements.  At least this makes up for my horrible disappointment with TMNT.

What exactly is "Live for Windows"?  I'm assuming I've missed an article or announcement either on the forums or on varous gaming sites, and I'm curious about what "Live for Windows" is.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Number 5 or 6, I think.  There were three NES Castlevanias, Super Castlevania IV on SNES then it gets kind of fuzzy:

There was Rondo of Blood on the Turbografx CD but it was never released here (it's being remade for the PSP this year and will also include a localization of the original).  Rondo of Blood is considered one of the best CV games.  There was a SNES Dracula X which was supposed to be a sort of remake of Rondo of Blood but it wasn't well though of.  Then there was also CV: Bloodlines for the Genesis.

Cross-platform gaming, shared with your XBL gamertag, achievements, etc.  No additional cost if you already have an XBL gold account (which you must have, given all the stories I read...)

Ah, it's for Windows Vista, which I don't have.  Just curious if it would be something I could try, but without Vista, and without any plans to pick up Vista, I guess I'll be sticking with just playing on my 360.

This might be my first XBL Arcade purchase since Uno!
