You mistake excitement for dislike. I think the handheld Metroidvanias are great games, just nothing to get very excited about.

Dawn of Sorrow, on its own, is a refined, heavily polished game thats one of the best on the DS, but to someone who isn't familiar with Castlevania, you can take a screenshot of it and compare with with a screenshot of SOTN, and you couldn't tell the difference. And they are eight years apart. That's why I don't really pay attention to Castlevania anymore, because it's just the same thing over and over again.

And overall, I prefer when Castlevania was Castlevania and not trying to be Metroid. Don't get me wrong, SOTN is an amazing game, but I still prefer the older Castlevanias and Metroid. But that's just me.
