Excerpt: "Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD is an absolute mouthful to say. It's a good game marred by bad design decisions, with an experience that falls short. The character switching is superficial at best. As a port it's completely functional, but also very lacking. And combined with a lengthy, yet underwhelming story makes this title most forgettable. It's saving grace is the 2D classic Castlevania exploration and backtracking that give the game its legs to endure the 10 hours of gameplay."
