[Game] Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow

Aria of Sorrow Not like there is anything explicitly wrong with Aria of Sorrow itself, but I feel like I’ve been playing the same game over and over again since Castlevania: Symphony of the Night for almost twenty years already. I wish it didn’t take them until Order of Ecclesia to figure out that action could take outside of the dull corridors of the castle, too, sometimes.

Positive: Negative:
Good music
Low location variety
Good mix of platforming/fighting game-play
Bland inconsequential story
Challenging difficulty
Bland inconsequential characters
Good boss fights
Brings nothing new to Castlevania series
Tremendous variety of trash mobs
Items and leveling up allow cheapshots
Some bosses feel like they were recycled from previous games
