Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow- Mirror Of Fate Review (Modojo)

Chris Buffa (Modojo): The first step to enjoying Castlevania: Lords of Shadow- Mirror of Fate for 3DS is to accept the fact that it doesn't necessarily play like those handheld Castlevania games that appeared on Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS. Although you view the action from the traditional side-scrolling perspective, the developers at Mercury Steam modeled everything in 3D, in addition to making environments and characters resemble those found in the studio's Lords of Shadow for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3; say goodbye to Konami's 2D sprites. Meanwhile, that sense of exploration (AKA Metroidvania) was somewhat nixed in favor of a game that for the most part pushes you forwards instead of backwards. Hyperventilating yet? Don't panic, since Mirror of Fate still delivers a satisfying experience. (3DS, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate) 3.5/5
