Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin
The second Castlevania game on the DS is far better in my opinion than the previous. I think that has something to do with this being an original story as opposed to the past game being a continuation of another past game. I really enjoyed the dynamics between Jonathon and Charlotte, Portrait’s two main characters, and the way the game incorporates the two players is great. On top of that, the music is top notch (which is saying something quite well for a series known for its music) and the levels are varied and detailed. Overall a solid action game that will surely please.
