Great game. Just buy it, seriously.

My personal Game Of The Year, I am not shitting you.

Just finished chapter one. It is full of gorgous epic win. This is a stellar game and it's über long. I am enjoying every minute of it. There are a few quirks but the overwhelming amount of awesome makes any cons unhindering to the experience. Take everthing you loved about uncharted, mgs4, and gow3 and allow those elements to outline in a brilliant castlevania universe. How IGN gave this game a 7.5 is beyond me.

I'm on chapter X right now on hard difficulty and man, it's amazing.

Sidology3297d ago

The game is satisfyingly difficult. I really love the challenge it imposes on the player. It's rewarding, to say the least.

Elimin83296d ago

Me too. My first play through on hard. Then Paladin...

I could see this game getting a GOTY award.

ghostgaming3297d ago

I am happy that this game turned out good - have it, its one of the best games this year, probably wont win GOTY, but it should be in the conversation.

Sidology3297d ago (Edited 3297d ago )

Agreed. It's not GOTY material, at least to me, but at the very least in my Top 5 releases this year.

the game is crap up until the lycan boss and then it starts to get better but not that much better, also the difficulty is way off the normal guys you fight get harder and the bosses are a piece off piss. they really should have addressed that. this game is more frustrating than enjoyable, i wasnt expecting an easy ride but the game is just off not even the castlevania heritage can make it better.

honestly its an above average game, if you have to buy one platform/action/adventure i'd recommend Enslaved over this. i'd say this ones for castlevania fans only.

Sounds like you suck at the game

Sidology3297d ago

Well, chalk me up as a Castlevania fan.

I loved it.

AKS3296d ago

Can't you at least handle the lower two difficulties? I agree that the upper two difficulty levels are tough (I've been playing on Knight), but you never have to play on Paladin or Knight and here you are still bitching about the difficulty. Why must every game be dumbed down to the lowest common denominator for you to be happy?

stuntman_mike3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

it isnt about the game being too hard its about game balance and this game has none. And its a pretty poor game at that. GOW3, bauyonetta, devil may cry (the 1st one) this game aint a patch on these they tried to copy.

it has a good soundtrack and graphics though.
