Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow – Consumer Guide

Scott Jones's picture

According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Blood, Violence

Despite the gothic-horror content of the game, parents have little to be concerned about. Indeed, there are death-dealing weapons and herds of monsters, yet the game still manages to be a fairly lighthearted endeavor.

Younger gamers probably won't have the patience to explore the labyrinthine castle. Mature gamers will likely connect with the game on a nostalgic level, but long-time fans of the series might also find the aging gameplay tedious and stale.

Fans of 2D action games like Super Metroid and Mario should enjoy the game. RPG fans might also relish the prospect of gaining experience points and leveling up their character and fussing around with the various soul combinations.

Finally, Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers should have no trouble enjoying Aria Of Sorrow, since all of the game's dialogue appears on screen in text boxes.
