The rebirth of the Castlevania series is upon us. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow will be released this fall, and historically the Castlevania series has been a trendsetter. Fans of the series take comfort in the fact that Hideo Kojima and his production company are associated with the project, teaming with Mercury Steam who is already the primary developer on the new title. The recent screenshots have given us our first glimpse at Gabriel, the protagonist for the new game.
With the screenshots that were recently dropped on the interworld, one thing comes to mind. God of War III. In all honesty first impressions will have you double taking to make sure you aren't looking at God of War III screenshots. Sure, imitation is the highest form of flattery, but gamers have already played two God of War games this year. One being under the name of Dantes Inferno, the second being the now legendary God of War III, and is a third really neccessary?
