My info

One of the greatest soundtracks I ever heard! So many melodies and ideas, slightly inspired by the original Castlevania feeling (but not so much to being repetitive and boring, as you may see in some other Castlevania games). Because of this it's not only greatest Castlevania soundtrack I heard, but also one of greatest game soundtrack I could listen to. [10/10]

  • "YEAHHHHH" (by WAR_ANGEL, 12 Apr 2004) [8/10]
    Good sounds.. sorry i no talk much inglish... hi all... i am peruvian if talk spanis answer... bye bye

  • "Like Woman Do" (by Darth Nefelim, 5 Sep 2004) [7/10]
    Did you imagine that the composer of the callsic vampire game could be a woman? I was really shocked... But the music is quite good, really good, but atmospheric a bit. Try "Crystal Drop" and "I am the Wind". They're the best.

  • "Best game soundtrack EVER" (by DaRkSiDe, 10 Oct 2004) [10/10]
    I have to agree with everyone else on this one. The soundtrack to Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is the best game soundtrack i've ever heard. And I thought nothing would beat the OST's to Final Fantasy VII & VIII... :-)

  • "Castlevania at it's best" (by Daemit, 6 Aug 2016) [10/10]
    When I think of great game soundtracks, the first thing that comes to my mind is Castlevania series, and the first game I think about is Symphony of the Night. Simply put, even among the best tunes ever written for video games, Symphony of the Night soundtrack is a very notable achievement. Bravo, Michiru Yamane!
