Canadian Online Gamers: "Castlevania: Lord of Shadows – Mirror of Fate is as enjoyable reboot, if you will, to an age-old franchise. The game has all the right elements to make it fun and enjoyable. Sure, it has a few issues but fans of the series, and genre as a whole, will most likely love it even if it does bristle with the liberties in the storyline. That being said, the casual fan may have trouble with the sometimes-tough control and dark undertones of the subject material. I for one have found a new interest in the Castlevania series again; although I must admit after playing this game I felt a strong need to pull out Dracula-X or Shadow of the Night. At the end of the day Mirror of Fate is a fairly good addition to the historic Castlevania series."
