"There seems to be two distinct types of Catlevania fans out there. Those who prefer the old style “Metroidvania” design, and those who will embrace anything with the Castlevania name on it, given the chance. Konami’s upcoming instalment, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate, looks like it might finally bridge that gap and bring harmony to the fanbase.
Having been recently invited to try out and early build of Mirror of Fate, I found solace in that fact that I am not a huge Castlevania fan – which allowed me to judge Mirror of Fate entirely on its own merit rather than comparing it to previous games in the franchise. And I have to say, I’m impressed with what I’ve seen so far.", writes Vooks.
