Scarily good

The Game Boy Advance enjoyed a terrific trilogy of 2D Castlevania titles — as did its successor, the DS — which set impressive standards for portable entries in the franchise. With GBA games on the Wii U, the prospect of playing them on the GamePad — or the TV if you like enormous pixels — must have come to the minds of Konami...

No descriptions, images, or comments? How long has this page been around? A review for this game would be a good read.

SotN is the only Metroidvania I completed, and as Circle of the Moon is the next in line it would be nice with a review to find out if it´s any good! NL, wouldn't you help the three of us out? ;o)

It's good. I played both SotN and Circle of the Moon. While SotN is better, Circle is still very worth playing.

This one was the lamest of the gba castlevanias: slower and clunkier controls, small sprites and drab look at times, the map design and exploring is not even close to what the following titles have. But still a pretty good game! I'm expecting a 7/10 for the wii u vc version :)
The later gba castlevanias started the triumph that was the ds castlevanias, which rock everyone's socks.

The worst of the trinity of GBA Castlevanias. Unremarkable visuals, extraordinarily unresponsive controls and terrible item placement. I give it a 6/10.
