Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD Review | GameCloud

"Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is one of my favourite franchises from this generation. However, in saying that, I almost feel like Dracula himself, staring into the abyss and wondering whether a legion of nostalgia fueled fans wait below with fire and pitchforks. Having grown up as a “Sega Kid”, I had no advance insight into the lore of Castlevania, and thus, whilst I have a good understanding of the design concept known as “metroidvania”, I mostly went into Lords of Shadow with an entirely blank slate. To be honest, I’m not entirely sure what it is about the game, but it immediately resonated with me, and not just because I like hearing the sound of Patrick Stewarts voice. In fact, it’s likely the most interested I’ve ever been in a mythology that’s so closely tied to Christian theology. Although, more importantly, I really enjoyed the design, and ultimately, what the developers were trying to deliver." - William Kirk, Editor In Chief at GameCloud (Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD, PS3, Xbox 360) 8.0/10
