Guess what? DC I played your demo of Lords of Shadows and it sucks b**s. The atmosphere & gameplay were horrible for my taste as a Castlevania fan. The same feeling I got as Donte reveal for the new DmC...

I would NOT compare it to Dante from DmC. I'm a long-time fan of Castlevania as well, having played the originals on NES back in the day. Sure, the demo for Lords of Shadow 2 wasn't that great. However, judging a game on a demo alone is not wise. If it comes out and it sucks, well feel free to bash it. Wait until the full game is released though before passing judgement.

I owned the original LoS at one point, and I feel that it got uncomfortably close to being a combo-focused God of War re-skin with a different story.

I traded it in and didn't regret it. If the sequel is along the same lines[all GoW combat and little free-roaming exploration of different huge areas], then I'll likely skip LoS 2 as well.

I'd give a lot to see Castlevania return to the Metroid-vania style of collecting and upgrading combined with free-roaming exploration of a huge castle or two...

Or, heck, I'd love to see a successor to Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow hit the 3DS or Wii U. That was one of the best iterations of the entire Castlevania line, IMO.

I heard LoS2 was weak but honestly the 1st LoS was outstanding

DMC gamplay wasent messed with just the style. but this was altered beyond be-leaf

2D games are coming back in a big way - this seems odd.

I think there's still room for 2d downloadable Castlevania games as well as a triple A 3d ones.

Trust me, no they aren't, but neither are 3D Castlevanias, they both have an audience and can co-exist fine

Castlevania can rock the 3ds anytime. They had quite a few good side scrollers on DS as well.
