"If you really want to play Castlevania on your 3DS, then play the classic DS games of yesteryear and not this garbage. This joyless mess of a game provides nothing but aggravation and disappointment."
Wow! 1.5/5? Can it really be that bad?
Not quite that bad, but yes it's bad....at least I was disappointed...I was waiting a LONG time for a 2D spin on lords of shadow series...
Im disappointed to hear that, given how great Castlevania Lords of shadows is I was really looking forward to the 3DS follow up version...
I played the demo and it was terrible. Why is it so hard to understand? Handheld gamers are fine with sidescrollind Castlevania.
Now Konami will try to make this game HD because it seems like they really dropped the ball. How the hell can you take so long to make a game and do a bad job at it?
"There is one question I would ask MercurySteam, and that is: why the hell does a vampire have the ability to turn into a wolf?" ... "It’s about as bad as making an emo-vampire sparkle in the sun." OH I see now, his knowledge on vampires is limited to the Twilight series.
Apparently he haven't played SOTN...
@rezzah - seriously? http://lmgtfy.com/?q=SOTN#
@rezzah Lmao, Twilight series. In Bramstoker's Dracula, Dracula could turn into a wolf. So the author must watch too much Underworld and Twilight.
Exactly what I was thinking.
Should of been a vita game. Just saying
i read an article on neogaf that mercury steam needs to choose between 3ds and the vita because of a tight budget... they chose the 3ds.... and the result a game that is not as close to the lords of shadow on consoles because of the limitations of 3ds... have they been choose the vita then it will be a different game than this one.... just saying ^_^ the last great castlevania game that i played is order of ecclesia
Game rocks. Idk where all the bad reviews come from. I can see it changed from the Metroidvania type game to levels but its about the same. There's still big levels with some exploration, hidden items, and backtracking. It has tons of throwbacks and stuff in there specifically for fans. The graphics rock, 3d is amazing, combat is same as in LOS or GOW except in 2d, and its fun. Either people dislike that its a LOS game instead of the classic Castlevania or they're pissed it's on the 3ds. Don't judge from gameplay or hearsay, play it yourself and then decide. It's not perfect by any means but its basically a 2d LOS with far more classic elements and characters. It's a good Castlevania for sure.
Bah! Great game. Bad review.
