Rien ne semble arrêter les entités qui nous guettent de l’autre côté de la réalité… que peuvent faire les deux agents du FBI Mallow et Fischer pour empêcher la catastrophe qui nous menace ? quel prix faut-il payer pour sauver le monde ? certains dossiers ne se classent jamais…
Departing from the central hub level layout of Lament of Innocence, wherein the player chooses from a number of distinct stages all accessible from a central hallway, Curse of Darkness features a more complete game world with a complete castle map as in Symphony of the Night. However, the game still uses the same map engine as Lament of Innocence, rather than the square-based grid of 2D Castlevanias. In PS2 version only, the player can get the Moai statue. This item can only be obtained if the player has a cleared save file of Castlevania: Lament of Innocence on their memory card. Conversely, load times are faster in the Xbox version. Curse of Darkness is set in the year 1479, three years after the events of Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse.
When the game begins, Hector arrives at an Abandoned Castle to confront Isaac. The latter scoffs at his desire for revenge and dares him to regain his powers so they can settle their score in a satisfying way. Hector reluctantly accepts the challenge, and starts hunting his former friend across the Transylvanian countryside. At one point, Trevor decides to trust Hector, and uses his own blood to unlock a parallel world called the Infinite Corridor, where Isaac is supposedly hiding.
