Real Review - Castlevania: Lords of Shadows

"Castlevania is one of the longest running and most popular retro game franchises in existence. When the gameplay became outdated for some (still plays fine for me), it must've been time for a remake. What we got wasn't the 3D sequel to Symphony of the Night like many were expecting (Thank God. Too much SotN fanaticism for me to handle.), but instead, a reboot to the entire series. A shocking thing to do to fans? I know I sure as hell was shocked, so I'm guessing many others were going to be as well. To be truthful, I, too thought this would suck as it was a 3D Castlevania game. When the release came closer and closer, I quickly changed my mind and it became one of the most anticipated game on my "To Review" list (Yeah, I have one. Look at the bottom for a list of games I'll review up to next early year). After getting my hands on the final product, only one question still lingers: Is it a good 3D reboot (and does the 360 version have framerate issues)?" (Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, PS3, Xbox 360) 10/10

Awesome review!! I couldn't agree with you more I have played through twice and I absolutely love this game. It's by far my favorite game this year and damn close to being my favorite for this generation. Many fans will complain about the lack of being in one castle for the ENTIRE game while I like the fact it's similar to Castlevania 2 & 4 where you traverse through many lands before reaching the castle.

My only complaint really is the lack of camera control really, other than that I think this game is really setting up something extremely huge in the future with it's sequel coming hopefully 2012. Hopefully we will see Simon tracking down Dracula, with many of the classic tunes redone in full bombastic glory!! Excellent job Mercury Steam and David, I couldn't ask for a better game.

Yeah, that's what I'd like. A really want a 3D remake of every game up to Symphony of the Night. Symphony of the Night isn't Castlevania. It'd be cool to have a Super 3D Castlevania 4, wouldn't it? I think It would be awesome.

Symphony of the Night is the best of the Castlevania,and it sure is better than Lords of Shadows.

1. No, definitely not.
2. At least rent the game before you judge it. Just because you worship the game doesn't mean the other games don't exist.
