A very narrow selection of games, from a format that does not work well on modern TVs, but Aria Of Sorrow in particular stands out as one of the best Castlevania games ever made.

Castlevania Advance Collection really showcases a side of Konami we don’t see very often anymore. On one hand, they trot out old franchises with low-effort projects and try to essentially trick people into buying them. On the other, they are capable of putting out old games in a format that’s not just well crafted, but also seeks to preserve classics that you can’t easily find. The company is an enigma.

There could have been a little more done, specifically with the user interface, but the extras that are here make this a fun collection. If you didn't get to experience this handheld era of Castlevania games, maybe take some time to see what you missed.

A Collection that includes some of the most representative and entertaining 2D episodes of the entire saga. Let's hope that Konami will soon put in the hands of M2 the chapters for Nintendo DS.

Castlevania Advance Collection sets the standard for how older games should be preserved and presented to a modern audience. There are many quality of life features to make the games more accessible while keeping everything that made them special in the first place.

The Castlevania Advance Collection is a fine piece of game preservation, collecting three good games and a half-assed dud thrown in for good measure. Joking aside, the games haven't aged as well as the NDS trilogy, but put together they make a must-have package for fans of the Belmont family.

We never get tired of slaying vampires and Castlevania Advance Collection gives us the opportunity to slay the Prince of Darkness in four excellent titles once again.

Some games age badly. Others can come back as often as they want, they will have no trouble charming their audience. The three Castlevania released on the Game Boy Advance are still, 20 years later, simply worn, of a very good overall level. (Re)trying them on larger screens, with some welcome arrangements, is not refused, whether you have a little nostalgia, the desire to perfect your culture or a good appetite for Metroidvanias.
