Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate Review (GameXplain)

GameXplain: "When Castlevania: Lords of Shadow was first released, many fans were worried that Konami had completely abandoned the series’ traditional formula in favor of a more God of War-flavored approach. Specifically, they were worried that the games would be moving away from the Metroidvania style that Symphony of the Night had popularized. But for my own part, I felt that Lords of Shadow was a highly underrated game that was actually more of an homage to the classic Castlevania games on NES and SNES. I enjoyed the alternate take on the story and was interested in seeing where they would go from there. The end result is Mirror of Fate for the 3DS, a 2D game that’s more in line with the traditional gameplay that fans are used to."

Game rocks. It's not LOS but not Metroidvania either. I won't lie I was and still am a bit disappointed its not "classic" Metroidvania but it really nails the Castlevania feel. Also it does have huge levels with vertical gameplay and some exploration/backtracking so its just go right, it feels similar to SOTN. What it does best though other than atmosphere is combat. It's the best combat in a 2d Castlevania title ever. It is LOS in 2d. Very fun, beautiful, moody, and the 3d is among the most impressive (up there with Fire Emblem's amazing use of 3d). The only complaint really is the frame rate suffers. It's not bad but feels jerky. Not bad but it just feels off. Not a problem IMO but I'd be amiss if I didn't mention it as it is a negative. Otherwise its a killer game.
