Solid action adventure, although "safe" compared to its predecessors

Of the "Metroidvania" style games before it, this is the most polished and balanced, but there is a feeling of going through the motions that keeps it from greatness.

Why is 340k considered bad sales for a DS game? This game was probably in the black after the first 100k units.

I'm on the same level as TomHoang here. Exactly why does Castlevania sell so badly. I can't get enough of Castlevania! This game was the first i got in the series, and now i cant stop buying them, i even hunt down the retro CV's to get what i missed out on. It has such a great system, why is it not more popular?
