A promise is a promise.

As Konami continues to bring more and more Castlevania games into the modern era (and seemingly doing everything they can to not make a new one), our Castlevania Advance Collection Game Club begins! And strangely, no one was willing to join our hosts to talk about the first ever portable Castlevania title: Circle of the Moon.

"Why did people like this in 2001 & it got such good Metacritic reciews?"

At the time, I only had Nintendo systems & missed Symphony of the Night.  So I went from the NES/SNES Castlevania games straight to a Metroidvania.  It also had been 7 years since the last major Metroid-style game on a Nintendo system. So Circle of the Moon was amazingly impressive.

I think your criticisms in retrospect make sense.  But at the time, we had very little to compare it to.

This game sounds terrible.

Also, the only Castlevania game I have played for any significant time is 3 on the Famicom. I havent been able to complete the first level.
