  • Summary: Castlevania Doublepack is a compilation of the two previous Game Boy Advance Castlevania titles--Castevania: Harmony of Dissonance and Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow. The games are included in their complete form, giving players the ability to act as either Juste Belmont or Soma Cruz, depending on which story and game they wish to tackle. Both games feature a number of weapons and enemies as you make your way through the castle to combat Dracula in 2D combat. Expand

  1. A must-own for the Castlevania elite.
  2. If you enjoyed "Dawn of Sorrow" for the DS but haven't had the chance to play this pair of adventure side-scrollers, you gotta pick this up. [Apr 2006, p.86]
  3. As a pair, they offer far more pleasure than you could expect for the money, and are the perfect kind of games to while away an evening with, time you'd only spend watching 'Changing Rooms' or something.
  4. While these side-scrolling action games are still addictive and challenging, it's hard to get nostalgic over games with release dates from 2002 and 2003, respectively.

    In addition to the high quality of the games, this is a great set because of how rare these games are. On eBay, you can expect to pay about $30 for each one. This double pack is a great buy. Collapse

    ridiculously good games. Aria of sorrow might be one of the best platformers ever made. F Maxim they have no idea what they're talking about.

    this game was brillant very hooking but, it took me less then 24 hrs to beat, i would have given it a perfect 10 if it was longer.

    First of all only fair to warn you I didnt play this double pack I played and own both games included.. They are both great games but the first and third are far superior to the second. People whined about the screen being too dark, and the game being to difficult with Circle of the Moon. So what happened? we were handed harmony of dissonance with the polar OPPOSITE not a BALANCE of Circle of the Moon. It was still an above average game but it was too freaking easy. and I know what im talking about because im not really that good at videogames but im obsessed with them. And I seriously doubt I ever died more then 3 times in the sequel with a kindergarten level difficulty and eye bleeding bright colors. but again it was still a decent castlevania I just would of included the first and third if it were me thats all. If this didnt have the third game it would be getting something like a 5 but the third game is the best of the ones on gba so the score reflects the game. This isnt a biased review either My honest opinion (and you are of course entitled to your own) is the second game was a stepback from what made castlevania great and it was corrected in aria of sorrow.
