Blast: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Review

Video Game legends rarely need a rebirth, but Castelvania, the long running vampire slasher that debuted on the Family Disk Computer System in September of 1986 had hit a brick wall. Once standing among the medium’s elite, groan worthy installments and terrible spinoffs led many gamers to believe that the series was finished. Something had to be done if the Belmont clan was to be saved.

I think it deserves alot better. I loved every second of it. I actualy enjoyed the camera angles very much, to me it makes it more cinematic and reminds me of the 1st dmc.

This game is a A+/A+ in my book

Mercury Steam. Kojima-San had final approval on all aspects. Yes, this review in uninformed indeed.

I don't understand all of these mediocre reviews. I'm on the 8th chapter, and I've enjoyed this game more than God of War 3, which was also great.

Finished it last night and its fun game but nothing really stands out to much when compared to a number of other similar games.
A lot of easy puzzles that show up in the second half of the game. Some of them can become frustrating not because they hard but what you have to do. To much key collecting and breaking down doors the first half.

The fighting is solid and there is a lot of good boss fights and characters. Those things they nailed down right.
I never had much problems with the camera during fights but they do go overboard with some of the angles during platform parts that aren't always the best.

C+ !? Hell no!! This game is at LEAST a B.

LoganX3940d ago
