Castlevania Lords of Shadow review: Yet Another 90+

So it's happened again. Castlevania Lords of Shadow has hit well into the 90s in its latest review in PSM3.

This time it's 94 percent, with the mag describing the Kojima influenced vampire action-adventure as "a glorious, epic with incredible combat and an involving story".

So far every review is confirming my three pillars of a classic game: Gameplay, story, graphics.

90% of the credit goes to the actual development team that made the game, Mercury Steam. They have made an epic.

Their first Next Gen Game, Clive Barkers Jericho was awesome aswell, I don't know why most people hated on it.

The atmosphere was absolute fantastic, it was a horror atmosphere like non other out there. The voice over may be stupid, but the story was pretty darn good.

And I couldn't complain over the gameplay, having a whole team to play with individual psychich powers is awesome.

Sorry, I have to disagree with you about story and graphics. Good graphics and a good story can compliment a game but it's all about gameplay in the end. For example, Pac-Man and Tetris are classics but they have archaic graphics and no story.

You can't blame them, that was the ugliest game in history!

It really is the kojima effect. he had a suprising amount of input in the project. even down to the main character's design.

This game wasn't on my radar until recently but I've been hearing only good things about it and the few trailers I've seen look great. Guess I'll be picking this up soon.

and i've been waiting for a really good translation in 3D, the 1st one on ps2 was ok but this looks to finally it the series justice. i also would like to say shame on Konami for not giving Koji Igarashi a high budget for his 3D game; because if they did that ps2 game could have turned out just like this one.

i really hope people support this game by going out and purchasing it, but i have a bad feeling that this will not do any better than the rest of the games in this series.

castlevania is the definition of cult classic.
