Am I the only one who thinks Caslevania series sucked? The character was always so slow and stiff with terrible animation. Metal Slug, Mega Man, Strider, Rolling Thunder and the great Ghouls 'n Ghosts are great examples of side scrolling games. Not Castlevania.

Castlevania Symphony of the Night is one of my fav games of all times, I dont know how you can say the animation was bad in that one. The music was also one of the best ive heard in any game.

Mowtin, I guess we're really comparing apples to oranges though. Aside from being side-scrollers they are actually very different types of games.

I think SotN (which I only played myself when it came out on XBLA) is an amazing adventure side-scroller with lots of depth to it, and I guess thats more my kind of thing. This is more action side-shooter/puzzler and as I said I don't see how interesting it would be after the first half hour.

This game is so great. I never played the NES original so I haven't had any expectations going in. It's definitely a top-notch action side scroller.

SOTN is great in a lot of ways but depth is not one of them. All you have to do is grind to get the best equipment and it's basically god mode after that. It's very RPG-ish in a sense. I would agree that comparing these games is a bad idea. Just remember the Castlevania series wasn't much different when Bionic Commando originally came out.

Downloaded the demo of the game, played for about 10 minutes, then deleted the P.O.S. Am I missing something here? How is this game awesome?

Either you were never a fan of NES/SNES games or you just cannot go back to that style.
