Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate | Review

GR-UK writes: "The responsibility of caring for a Japanese video game franchise stemming for the mid-80s is not to be taken lightly. Especially given the tricky intertwining storylines of a Castlevania game. Spanish developer Mercury Steam are not doubt pleased to have been given what appears to be a carte blanche to use whoever they want from the rich cast of characters, regardless of what era these characters originally belonged to.

In Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate, a bridge of sorts between the first Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and the upcoming sequel, you're given the pleasure of playing as both Simon Belmont and Alucard. These two gentleman share a close blood relation, something that will contribute to a very memorable event halfway through the adventure. It's entirely possible some fans will take issue with the manner in which Mercury Steam treat the heritage, but personally I'm more troubled by the idea of multiple main characters as such." (3DS, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate) 7/10
