Finally! Symphony of the Night is in my grasp! Well, sort of – it’s on my Xbox 360’s hard drive. This is the first of the “Metroidvania” style Castlevania games, and I’ve just been playing it.
As always (well, except for that GB one and the PS2 one…), it’s great. I’m Alucard, who plays much like Soma did in Aria of Sorrow, and the graphical style is much like Circle of the Moon, so it’s like a kind of mish mash of all the CV games I’ve played over the last few months. I know this came first, but that’s what it feels like.
So I’ve killed the first boss, met Maria, and explored quite a bit of castle. It’s ACE!
