Dustin Spencer from Capsule Computers writes: "Castlevania: Lords of Shadow debuted in 2010 and changed everything we know about the age old franchise. Yes, learning Gabriel Belmont’s new tale lead to one entertaining reboot, but many fans cried fowl due to the more action-oriented – or “God of War like” take on the franchise. Honestly, I thought it was a great burst of fresh air, pumping new life into the archaic structure that had been relatively the same for years. Well – like it or not, we now have a follow-up for the 3DS by the name of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate. This title keeps it in the family, bringing together three familiar protagonists as they work together to achieve one common goal. Does this “Mirror of Fate” reveal a healthy future for the series, or would it be better off taking a stake to the heart? Let’s find out."
