GEV says: It’s no secret that the Castlevania games haven’t been very good since the days of the old 2D sidescrollers. We all remember sinking hours of our lives into classic Castlevania games like Symphony of the Night. Unfortunately, the evolution of gaming wasn’t kind to Castlevania. But thankfully Konami wasn’t ready to give up on this classic series. And with a little help from Mercury Steam and Kojima Productions, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow proudly reclaims a place of honor for the series in the gaming echelon.
