GameZone: "While the game gives you a lot of excellent features and combat options, it does feel a bit too simple and all too forgiving. At no point did I feel Konami would truly soak me in blood unless I played the game in a very unhinged way. I feel like this game has to be much cooler in other situations, but Konami failed in delivering action, intensity, and definitely more than a couple cups of blood. If the game doesn't deliver more than this, it's going to be tough to keep us interested. Then again, we always have story and our gameplay style in a new, very open world to keep the game engaging. Only time will tell how this game will be, and thankfully that wait is less than a month away."
