As you can see from my review up top on the OP, I absolutely loved this game. It's my favorite Metroidvania game on Nintendo Handhelds. It's funny, since I just finished Aria, I decided to give this game a spin yesterday before work. I defeated the first boss and I'm about to continue right now.
I was actually thinkng of firing this game up again for another spin. It's in my Top 3 of the Castlevania series. And my #1 favorite DS game ever. Crazy how this thread just kind of popped up all of a sudden.
Maybe after I finish up A Link Between Worlds, I will snap this into my old DS Lite and go through the adventure again. It's been a long enough time that I think a lot of it will end up feeling fresh (again).
I just played this for Shocktoberfest too. I didn't think it was anything special, but it was a solid enough adventure to be enjoyable.
@ludist210 Yeah, the soul stuff was definitely irksome. I remember coming to a point where I needed a couple of the random soul powers to pass a barrier instead of the guaranteed boss powers, and it took me a couple of hours to get them. The soul drops shouldn't have been random and instead based on some other factor, such as defeating a certain number of the same enemy perhaps.
