Palgn: "The Castlevania series runs fairly predictable at this point. Well at least it could be said for the Nintendo handheld versions, because following 2007's release of Potrait of Ruin, the third DS instalment of the Metroid-esque series has arrived in Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia. But comparing them to the late 2D Metroid titles just isn't appropriate anymore. Sure, they may have pioneered a sub-genre of exploration and platforming, mixed with role-playing elements before Castlevania carved its way into the niche. But it doesn't own the premise, much how we don't name every new first person shooter Wolfenstein-esque."
