  1. Taking many of the enjoyable visual, musical, and gameplay aspects of the DS Castlevania releases, the game molds together an absolutely terrific platforming experience that's not only extremely playable, but also wildly enjoyable as well.
  2. This game won't get any originality award, but Soul of Darkness is an excellent example of a game style that, actually, it is not as common as we would like.

    This is a solid clone of the DS Castlevania titles. It's fun, but things could have been better if it had more weapons (there's only two, and neither are very unique). But still, this game is well worth your five bones. Full Review »

    If you enjoyed any of the Castlevania series games on the Nintendo systems up to Symphony of the Night on the PS or enjoyed any of the newer DS titles you will absolutely love SoD. Its basically a Castlevania game in a new skin. It's worth the few bucks for that Castlevania fix and you are guaranteed to enjoy it. Full Review »
