The lights are on
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is one of my top ten games of all time, and I've wanted to take it down to the Replay room for some time now. That's why I got so excited when Reiner came by my desk to let me know that it was this week's episode. Alucard's 1997 adventure is a classic that plays as well today as it did 16 years ago, and is considered by most to be the best entry in the series.
Once you're done with Symphony of the Night, stick around for an import game in a new Reported segment.

Ah JoJo's, always a delight
The game of my dreams
I missed this when it came out, but I did recently play it and really enjoyed myself. It was the first Castlevania game I ever really played all the way through.
The characters in that Reported segment could not be more androgynous.
Also: Jeff's Tim was awesome.
I played this game, but frankly I never thought it was more than a 'good' on my personal list. (It wouldn't make my top 10 PS1 games list, much less top 10 all time.) Different flavors for different cooks I guess. (Admittedly, I wasn't a huge fan of the original games back in the day.) This was still a good Replay. The import second game was hilarious!
I lost count of how many times I have finished this game. By the time it got to America, I had already finished the Japanese version, I have played the English version, then finished it again on PS2, PS3, PSP and a few time on Vita. I think I'm obsessed with this game.
Listening to the Replay for SoTN while playing SoTN. Good times, my friends.
This was a great episode. I really have to try Symphony of the Night.
Great episode of Replay this morning. Symphony of the Night is such a fun game. I'm with Jason on playing through it every few years. It is definitely as good as I remember.
And it's been a while since I've seen a RePorted. Thanks!
Great game...missed it on original PSX, but it was included in the Dracula X chronicles for PSP. I played the regular game long enough to unlock SOTN, then never touched any of the other games on the disk. Fantastically fun, and one of the best 'PSP games' available. Crissaegrim (Valmanway?) is a game-breaker, but so fun....
hahaha chocolate thunder. amazing :P
you guys should let tim play for the castlevania super replay he has to play so many terrible games
tell us the Big Poop story!
I absolutely love this game!!
Please do a super replay :)
I've had some good times with this one. Probably played through it at least ten times.
Love this game
