IGN - Castlevania Mirror of Fate review

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate isn’t the Castlevania game you’re looking for. Not even close.

Video Review included

Update:

Video review doesn't seem to be showing. Video Review at the site though.

Having played the DS Castlevania games as well as having Symphony of the Night on the Vita it is disappointing to see that Mirror of Fate may not be as good as other sites have stated.

I have respect for Colin's reviews & although at times i disagree with some of them, in the video review he does make intriguing points on why he gave this game this score. I heard from forums that this game doesn't run that well also so yeah disappointing.

That score seems a bit out of touch with reality. Most reviews are around an 8.

From what I've been reading in other reviews

Pros: Combat, Graphics/3D effect
Cons: Platforming, music, doesn't follow Castleroid formula

Totally saw this score coming. They've been crapping on the game ever since the first time they went hands on with it.

I'm a little disappointed that they decided to go the Lords of Shadow route, personally. Don't get me wrong, that style is fun as well, but I loved the DS trio. Dawn of Sorrow and Order of Ecclessia in particular are among the best games I've played in a long time.
