PikiGeek: Castlevania this is not. It may say so on the box, but don’t be deceived. When you burst open the cartridge coffin you’re inviting an evil into your 3DS that may not belong there. It seems inviting – it throws around the name Belmont, there’s whips, and many ghouls to banish, but as you begin to scratch the surface you’ll see that you’ve been fooled. This is not the Castlevania you’ve prayed to have on a portable system. Instead, you get a 2D portable God of War that is one large bush rush mode. Oh, and it’s directed by Tim Burton.
