  • Order of Ecclesia mixes up the action with a female protagonist and a new glyph-based weapon system, but is it a direct descendent of the bloodline? Find out in this video review.


    Game features include:
    * Castlevania: The Order of Ecclesia features intense side-scrolling action gameplay as you quest to collect elements that will help you in your quest against Dracula
    * Explore all-new outdoor areas from the forests to the ocean
    * Compete head-to-head via the Nintendo DS Wi-Fi Connection
    * Sell and buy items and equipment you have found while playing with other players utilizing Nintendo DS Wi-Fi Connection
    * Utilize multiple abilities and attacks simultaneously with the all-new Glyph attack system
    * Replay more than once to discover multiple endings

    To quote the GT video review: “The past few Castlevania titles suffered somewhat with enemy sprites recycled from previous games, but Order of Ecclesia feels much fresher as most enemies are completely new and many returning creatures have even been spruced up. Detailed backgrounds and gory death animations are sure to please. Portrait of Ruin’s anime character art has been ditched in favor of the more detailed classic Castlevania style, and the soundtrack is superb as always.

    Order of Ecclesia isn’t a drastic departure from past installments, but it’s a clear step up with tweaks to gameplay and level design and a cast of creative new enemies. Despite being broken up into smaller levels, there’s still a heavy emphasis on exploration, and the merciless boss fights provide a satisfying challenge for any seasoned vampire hunter.”
