HookedGamers writes: "The Castlevania series of games has an impressive heritage spanning well over two decades. It is one of the longest running franchises in existence, beaten only by that of Mario and Zelda. The advent of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow marks the series sixth venture into 3D space, with the other five being generally ill-received. This begs the question - will Lords of Shadow suffer the same fate? The answer is, quite thankfully, a resounding 'no'."
