Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

I've heard that this game is a favorite among Castlevania fans, and that this game has received high scores from critics, but is it a good purchase for someone who has never picked up a Castlevania game before? I have $11 left on my PSN account, and I'm considering buying this game, but is it the kind of game where you can just play through without having to play any of the other games to understand the story? And is it worth the $9.99 price?

Coming from someone who has beaten the game nearly 30 times...SotN will be one of the best 10 dollars you have ever spent. There's a bit of a back story but it gets summed up at the start of the game and throughout. And even then, there isn't all that much to tell being that the older Castlevania games never had much story to them anyway. In general, this is a title you simply do not need to miss. It's also a great place to start if you're new to the series, but be warned, it will set the bar for you and Castlevania games; The only other ones that come close are some of the handheld ones, such as Aria of Sorrow, Dawn of Sorrow, Portrait of Ruin, and Circle of the Moon. Playing the older home-console titles after SotN will be hard to get through due to the major throwback in gameplay mechanics. If you enjoy 2D hack 'n slashers, however, then trust Zero, you'll be in gaming heaven.

Thanks for letting me know, but just my luck, I can't buy it right now. When I actually got to the point where I can purchase the game, I found out I'm $0.29 short. I'm screwed until I can get another PSN card.

Yeah, it's a game that shouldn't be missed. I'd call it one of the best games...ever.

And that sucks. You need to get points. Now :P

Yes, I do need more PSN money, but I have to wait until I find something else to buy with it as well. I'm not going to buy a $20 card for an extra $0.29.

Um...SotN on Ebay is almost 60 bucks. It's 50 on Amazon.

It's rare, which makes its price skyrocket.

All you have to do is look. It's much easier for him to get it on PSN.
