Although being linear, which I wish it wasn't, the first game was absolutely incredible. A mix of old school God of War meets Date's Inferno; I was highly impressed by this title. I heard the sequel was trash so I ever played it but I think LoS was a good example of how a 3D CV game could be.
I was very happy the game was Linear as I hate exploring. The first game was one of my all time favorites and the 2nd game was a total letdown with the lame hub system and stealth sections. Playing in current times sucked too. I wish they would make a remaster of part 1.
Good as a game but terrible as a Castlevania. The sequence was even worse.
It is a great game, but just like DMC is not a Devil May Cry..this one was not a Castlevania :-)
Give Castlevania to Igarashi team, and they will nail it as they did with Lament of Innocence and Curse of Darkness.
