Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is an action adventure game.



  • The background art is really beautiful.
  • The character animation is amazingly detailed. In addition to movement consisting of numerous frames, there is even a lot of dialog animation.
  • The game has a solid soundtrack. The music fits the game perfectly.
  • There are a wide variety of interesting monsters.
  • It's kind of interesting to have to collect items for things that are normally commonplace in Castlevania games, like obtaining items from candles, or seeing a monster's name.


  • The voice acting it just terrible.
  • The way they handle item changing is annoying. It's common to accidentally hit a candle with a weapon you do not want, and, if it's near a pit, you lose your desired weapon.
  • The CD icon at the top of the rooms when you change sections is out of place.
  • The display of the item you get and monster you kill sometimes gets in the way of the action.
  • Some of the items are humorous, but totally out of place, like a snorkel.
