Game Informer - Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia has been on my must-play list for a long time now. Released in 2008, it remains the final Symphony of the Night-style Castlevania game. Part of me purposely put off playing it for just this reason. I always knew there would be one new Metroid-esque Castlevania waiting for me. Sure, I loved Lords of Shadow and what it brought to the franchise, but it’s just not the same as having Super Metroid maps, expert sprite animation, and a ridiculous amount of powers and gear. I haven’t yet tried this year’s Mirror of Fate on 3DS, but from what I understand from my colleague, Tim, it’s much more Lords of Shadow than Symphony of the Night. Reading our list of the top 25 DS games in the July 2013 issue stirred up the nostalgia within and I finally broke down and played Order of Ecclesia.
