Following the devastation that was Castlevania on the Nintendo 64 and the revised Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness's failure to undo the damage dealt by it, Konami Computer Entertainment Kobe (KCEK) needed redemption.

"Finishing date: May 8 2015 Found this on the internet, first boss battle. Seen this game on a lot of lists here, that's what made me try it. I have to say it is not overrated. :) It was my first Castlevania game and one of my first experiences with similar platformers that I've actually completed. I've tried a bunch, but not many captivated me enough. • Upsides: - BOSS FIGHTS! - Great variety of monsters - The diversity and design of levels - Fitting music for a classic - Boss fights? •"

"Circle of the Moon is that rare Castlevania game that doesn't exactly know what it wants to be. The overall difficulty level makes it feel like the game wants one of its feet planted in the old-school games of the past while the formula brought over from Symphony of the Night simply fights against that idea at every turn. I don't exactly hate the game but I wish it would just pick a side and stick with it."

"Release Date: March 21, 2001 (JP) Publisher: Konami Developer: KCEK Genre: Action Castlevania: Circle of the Moon was first first in a long line of Symphony of the Night-inspired Castlevania games that have now become mainstays of Nintendo handhelds, and it's probably still my favorite of that bunch as well. It's the same enjoyable formula found in Symphony of the Night, with a few minor changes, and in portable form - what's not to like about that? In the early days of the Game Boy Advance, th"

"Posted on July 4th, 2012: I used to be unable to pick up magazines and comics unless I started with issue #1, so I had no qualms getting the short-lived Nintendo Power Advance's first issue in anticipation of Nintendo's next handheld system. I was fascinated with all of the games receiving walkthroughs in the issue, but none more than Castlevania: Circle of the Moon. I owe the game for getting me into Castlevania, my all-time favorite video game series, as well as for inspiring my love for Metro"

“Following the devastation that was Castlevania on the Nintendo 64 and the revised Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness's failure to undo the damage dealt by it, Konami Computer Entertainment Kobe (KCEK) needed redemption. The safest way of doing this would be to take inspiration from the series' last critically-acclaimed entry, and that would be Symphony of the Night. While that masterpiece justified 2D gaming in a world rapidly transitioning into 3D, the need for two-dimensional Castlevania platforming was no more obvious than when the antithesis fell so directly flat on its face. As a Game Boy Advance launch title, Circle of the Moon adapted Symphony's formula to lesser hardware and did so expediently, an admirable feat. Despite the deep Dual Set-up System, the game's greatest asset, it's ult” read more

"Beat February 27, 2011 I've owned this game since the GBA launched. I've never beaten it until today. I got stuck and never went back...And after roughly 7 1/2 hours of non-stop gameplay, I've finally beaten the game from beginning to end. This is a fantastic Castlevania entry, and the first game in the series to attempt to re-create the magic of Symphony of the Night. While Aria of Sorrow eventually tops this one, this is still a great game to play through if you never have before. Highly reco"
