Product Information
Following two acclaimed GBA releases, the classic side-scrolling combat series returns to the portable platform for more monster slaying and demon hunting. Adding to the clever variety of enemies and tricky castle levels that have helped define the series over the previous 16 years, this adventure allows the hero to collect the "souls" of defeated enemies and take on their special powers. There are also several different weapons to find and use, each with different attacks. Two Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow players can trade collected souls through a link cable connection.

Pokemonizing evil creatures

Long time ago, circa January 2005, an old friend lent me "that new Castlevania game where you get the enemie's souls"; i played a while, around 2 hours straight and i had this curious realisation: "man, am i playing pokemon capturing souls of evil creatures, some of them beign folk demons from other parts of the world?" "well mostly but you get to actually use yourself said souls, not just summon them".

With this entrance, i went to play all the way through "Aria of Sorrow" for the GBA. The controls are quite precise, if not almost slippery in some surfaces, where our main hero Soma Cruz must avoid a certain despair for the world while trapped inside a rebuilt Count Dracula's Castle. Graphycally, the game gives you as much as it was the system capable of showing the best it was capable, showing some colorful and detailed imagery both on the background and the foreground. For an almost gothic-themed game, in a portable console, this was quite a task pulled by the little wonder.

I can't stress enough how much of a good gameplay experience awaits for anyone who dares to have a sweep at this game, wich has a high-end replay value, where you have the challenges of finding all souls and completely exploring the castle itself.

Get it if you find. The goods await.

Great game, plenty to do and plenty to look at.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

As far as fans of Castlevania go, these days with more modern games and a new generation of young gamers with different demands tend to frown upon and get bored of classic styles of games, no matter how good they may be. Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow is one of my favorite Gameboy Advance games, as well as games in general. This was before they made the switch to a more cartoony/anime feel of the character design; it still maintains incredibly detailed artwork and depictions of characters. The different areas of the game are great (even if some are borrowed or influenced by past game areas) and the depth of the background/areas is great as well. I have always been a fan of these Castlevania games because while the style of playing stays similar, the graphics continually improve from game to game. The music is fantastic, I often find myself trying to find places on the internet where I can listen to the music from the game. The soul system is one of my favorite magic/extra weapon tools of all Castlevania games, it keeps you wondering what abilities you can gain from enemies, and increases playtime tenfold when you realize that you can't get some of the souls very easily. I feel like I'm part of a dying group of gamers that enjoy environment, visuals, ambience and music as much as if not more than the action, but Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow has plenty of everything.

GBA Castlevania third times a charm

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

The third in castlevania GBA era, All I can say is that Aria of Sorrow is the best GBA title. A blend of adventurous gameplay, a brilliant story (the first to be set in the future- 2035) and ALUCARD. This game introduces the “Soul Collection” mechanism, enemies drop unique ability-bestowing orbs, or "souls," you can equip and customize your abilities. Chuck in the GameBoy link Cable and you will be able to trade these souls with a friend.

The game showcases the GBA's ability with beautiful graphics and as always an awesome soundtrack. Also, unlike it previous predecessors, this one packs a substantial amount of challenges. With regular enemies packing quite a punch and bosses are frustratingly nasty.

Overall, an awesome game and a must for any castlevania fan. It’s a long game so expect to spend days even weeks to achieve the TRUE ending.

One of my favorite Castlevania titles

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I bought this because with few exceptions (N64, I'm looking at you), I love the series. I'm sure many who are new to the games might look at them as very linear and of course we're basically playing the 'same' game over and over with some different characters, weapons, and moves, but I just can't get enough of the ones that are well done. Aria of Sorrow is one of the best, and Soma is one of my favorite characters. The music is great, level design challenging without being impossible, and the graphics are in my opinion some of the best for a 2D game on the GBA. I spent a lot of late nights working on finishing this game and it is definitely a title to have in your collection.

Castlevania: AOS

I enjoy brain teaser games and this is definitely one of them. The gamer skill level required to play Castlevania is "hard". Castlevania is NOT an EASY game and it is not for your 10 year old child. Bosses are frustrating. The designers made the game too technical, even for teenagers. Don't plan on beating the game right away either. Overall it is a good game for the older generation crowd who understands the work involved in creating a game like this. Excellent game for the Nintendo DS due to 2D and scrolling.
