I found this guide very helpful,i never would of found half the items that are hidden. One person found this helpful. Gujde have the japanese guide of the game and, although I do not understand the language, it transmits more quality content and nigyt than Guid. But, in general terms, it is good guide. Castlevania Symphony is huge. It’s a game that, even to this day, is large by Castlevania standards. One of the biggest out there. It takes a lot of time to find just about everything and to explore Dracula’s Castle and by extension the inverted Castle.
A strategy guide lends itself to Castlevania the same way gudie Metroid guide does to a Metroid game. Mainly because with so much to explore the maps and item placements are pretty much invaluable. And from the outset the guide actually seems okay. Until you start to realize how badygames the walkthrough can sometimes be. Straegy begins with a lot of basic stuff.
Telling us about the enemies. The Bestiary shows screenshots of all the enemies and their actual data. It’s mostly bosses, however. Normal enemies aren’t listed and that’s actually incredibly strange. This is primarily because there IS reason to list normal enemies. We’re not just talking that one could learn of HP or anything. We’re actually talking about learning about what the enemy potentially drops and how rare that drop could be.
The game gives info on some enemies but not all. It’s not exactly complete in this regard. After that it’s all about the familiars, magic and items. All the descriptions of these things basically come from the game itself and thus the guide won’t tell you much more.
There is one section that is VERY useful, however. Badygames map index that shows the location of every item in the game. And each item is accompanied by a screenshot. If it’s hidden if it’s out in the open the guide shows you it. That doesn’t mean it’ll always tell you how, but the player can easily tsrategy out most of this stuff quite easily. What isn’t so great in the grand scheme of things is the walkthrough itself. There’s a lot to look at in this guide. And a lot of it is pretty.

The pages are pretty and glossed with a lot of great artwork, stylized fonts for the names of areas and the like. It compliments the look and feel of the game rather well.
It’s the actual info in the walkthrough that stings. Each section is given a map. And on these maps are waypoints that tell you what to do at a specific area.
So in Dracula’s Castle you’ll find a 1 marked on the map. So find “1” in the text and it tells you what to do. The problem with the walkthrough is that it’s not a straightforward one. On some maps early on, for instance, you’ll find Which means further in the walkthrough at step it’ll tell you what to do. And while it’s great that it’s a good time when, they don’t exactly remind you where you should be going.
If you get lost you’ll have to flip all the way back to the page with the map that had on it. And in some cases that map may be at the very beginning of the walkthrough. It simply doesn’t allow itself to ease that well. It doesn’t matter much anyway as much of it is pretty dry. The boss strategies can be decent, but most of the time the guide just isn’t telling you a whole lot of what to do in specific areas.
It keeps exploration alive this way, but it hardly lends itself to good strategy. The worst part about the guide, however, is that the inverted castle is given almost no coverage at all. It tells you how to beat the bosses, not exactly where to find them or anything. Just how to beat them. All the stuff provided for the normal castle is missing here. No item call outs, no maps Granted many of the maps you could just turn upside down and be fine Life Maxes and Heart Maxes are in different places.
Many of the items and enemies that appear are totally different. The guide prepares you for virtually none of this. And there are even a few things that might’ve helped the guide out a little more. Perhaps taking a lesson from how Nintendo Power organized their Super Metroid guide was in order. Tell us about the enemies we’ll encounter. When we reach a new area, list off the items that are there.
I know they showed us in a map appendix, but again, page flipping is not something I want to constantly be doing when exploring Dracula’s castle. Likewise, maybe even just a huge map of Dracula’s castle on a page spread or even a nibht out poster would’ve been nice.
It’s just odd how much was left out of this guide. And there’s no reason as to why. Leaving out the Inverted Castle in and of itself is a pretty lazy effort. Granted, the Inverted Castle isn’t exactly a LONG portion of the game, but there’s more to it than just it being an upside down version of the same castle you just explored.
With new enemies, items and in some cases traps, the guide really drops the ball. After the walkthrough we get a few secrets that are nice to know, but it’s still a shame that much of the walkthrough in and of itself is so poor. Strategg suppose for exploring the right side up castle the guide is okay. It’s got maps and item placements, but beyond that the guide is pretty useless, providing nothing for the player to benefit from. The strategies are poor and once you get to the inverted castle the guide just doesn’t offer much more to the player.
I was really happy to receive this guide and the game of course back in the late 90’s, but the honest truth is that Castlevania:
