    Having played all Metroids and all GBA and DS Castlvanias I was wandering, what other good games for the DS use the same style? If it matters, I like the Metroids much better...

    Ah OK, I thought because you said you`ve played all Castlevanias on GBA and DS I should recommend the very first and arguable the best Metroidvania [​IMG]

    -Cave Story (PC/WiiWare)
    -Scurge: Hive (DS)
    -Spiderman Web of Shadows (very light...) (DS)

    Hmm, I can`t remember more...

    Castlevania is much more fun than Metroid to my opinion.

    Ive never been a metroid fan but ive been playing them one by one latley. In order i just finished symphony of the night and i have to say.... Every single casltevania ive played so far, except this one... sucks... I dont get the attraction this series has, its boring, it has absolutley no atmosphere whatsoever.... Im so friggen bored while playing these games that i wish i never decided to play them.

    Symphony of the night did it right, but ive played the GBA/DS ones now and i have to say there pretty fin boring.

    Oh well this isnt a castlevanmialove/hate thread but hey.... Metroid will always be better in my opinion.

    As for metroidvania games they all pretty much suck compared to the main 2. :\

    Wow, I felt the exact opposite. For example when climbing the condemned tower in DoS I had goosebumbs!
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    But I know these kind of games are not for everyone. I love to backtrack and some people hate it... [​IMG]

    What about Barnyard Blast? It is a suprisingly good title from a crap studio. Ask Thordrian about it.

    Man, the castlevania games on the gba and the ds are the best castlevania games ever made. And I think they keep getting better! Order of Ecclesia ruled my life for almost 2 weeks straight.
