Another Successful Entry In The Series

Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin continues to use the same successful "metroid-vania" formula and provides yet another fun experience in the Castlevania series.

There were 3 GBA titles that followed Symphony of the Night and this game is the second of a trilogy released on Nintendo DS.

Portrait of ruin continues what Dawn of Sorrow did by taking advantage of the second screen. This allows for one of the screens as a dedicated map for referencing and it works perfectly. You can also hit select and the profiles of the character...
