Due to my recent interest in Metroidvanias, I decided to pick up Castlevania: Symphony of the Night on the Playstation Store. This game is nothing short of fantastic, and it might be one of, if not my favorite PS1 game. As opposed to most Castlevania games where you play as a Belmont, you play as Alucard, son of Dracula, in Symphony of the Night. You explore two castles in quest to stop your father and the evil priest Shaft (yes, this name is real). Alucard levels up, finds new gear, and learns new spell and abilities throughout the castles and builds power to fight powerful foes. Like other games in the genre, this game can be completely broken, and that's a good thing Have you played this game? What are your thoughts on the second castle?
