If you're interested in these, at all, this is a great deal. Not only are these difficult to find and overpriced if you can find them, they're really quite good games. I'll admit right now that Harmony has its problems, but Aria of Sorrow is the best of the series since Symphony of the Night on the PSOne. I played Aria of Sorrow entirely on a GameCube, but it's fun on the small screen too. One last thing: the market (on eBay) appears to have been flooded at one time with Hong Kong pirate versions, so this is a good opportunity to get legit versions. Pirate GBA carts, I'm told, can lose the ability to save quickly, compared to the real thing.
Since Ruffin's now playing my copy of Aria of Sorrow, perhaps he'll chime in with his thoughts on that game.
I'll probably, against my better judgement, snag the upcoming Curse of Darkness for PS2, sequel to the truly disappointing Lament of Innocence. Hope springs eternal, and all that crap.
I've been playing the DS sequel lately, it's really neat. Hopefully I'll be able to find the time to put up a review soon.
JohnH summary "Blah blah blah. I can play a Castlevania that jvm can't play yet. Blah blah blah."
Sorry 'bout that. If it makes you feel any better, I haven't been to play either of the PS2 Castlevanias. And I still haven't played Harmony of Dissonance.
You're not missing much on the PS2 games. Reviews of Curse of Darkness are saying it's a stinker.
You're not missing much on Harmony of Dissonance either. It's better than Circle of the Moon, but doesn't fare well against Aria of Sorrow.
