One Hit Pixel Review: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow: Mirror of Fate

One Hit Pixel: "It has been a while since we last saw a Castlevania game grace a handheld device. Since the undervalued Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia on the Nintendo DS, the mantle has been given to MercurySteam who subsequently made the mildly disappointing Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. While it was clear the new direction was popular, it lacked that spark that the series was known for, the character behind the game which came from it, and introduced very few fresh ideas beyond its blatant copying of God of War and Shadow of the Colossus. With a sequel on the way to consoles, a brand new handheld game in the series – Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate (hereby known as Mirror of Fate) attempts to bridge the gap between old and new. Sadly, for fans of the Metroidvania style of the series, this is a hugely disappointing game." (3DS, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate) C-/A+
