Gamer 2.0 writes: "The Castlevania series is one that has had many twists and turns since the first game came out in 1987. While most of the new conventions in the 2D game have been more than solid, from the emphasis on exploration beginning in Symphony of the Night and the new and fresh combat system presented in Order of Ecclesia, the 3D games have all but failed to impress critics or the series' faithful. When word came that Castlevania Judgment would be 3D, it left everyone skeptical. After that, everyone found out that it would be a fighter--which just turned everybody off. Now that the game is here, it's safe to say that the game isn't horrible, but it really isn't good either."
